No Military Threat on Southern US Border, Says NORTHCOM Commander

There is no military threat on the U.S. border with Mexico, the general in charge of defending the United States from foreign attacks told lawmakers Tuesday.

The comments by Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy come as more than 5,000 military troops are deployed to in support of federal law enforcement along the border. O’Shaughnessy leads U.S. Northern Command, the arm of the Pentagon created after Sept. 11, 2001, to defend the United States.

“It is not a military threat,” O’Shaughnessy told the Senate Armed Services Committee when asked about civilians crossing the border by Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., the panel’s ranking member.

The general instead pointed to “very real” military threats from Russia and China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are about to make military threats of Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba.
