Israel Not The Only Country With Tunnel Problems

by Ronnie Spangler

With the Israel vs Hamas conflict receiving 24/7 coverage on CNN you would think Israel is the only country in the world that has to worry about tunnels. Not so fast.

As the picture clearly shows we have our own problems right here at home. Most people hear about the occasional tunnel coming from Mexico to America by way of San Diego. This tunnel being inspected by a U. S. Border Patrol agent was in Nogales, Az. This is not the first or last tunnel to be found and destroyed in Az. This happens in every state bordering US and Mexico.

While it is true these tunnels are dug and used by Mexican drug cartels for illegal drug trafficking nothing stops them from smuggling terrorist wishing to bring harm to Americans. The only thing that deters them from using them in this way is the fear of retaliation if a terrorist attack was ever traced back to them. Bad business practice.


Could what is happening along the Gaza Strip ever happen along our borders? Only time will tell.
