Mexico is our worst enemy, seeds too many people on oneway trips north. take our money and use our heathcare systems and welfare and leave only more kids in return. if the educated came to work it would beifit us as it is only the uneducated show up and abuse our systems which wreaks havoc on our own people who need help and can't get it.

It really isn't one country that provides a terrorist threat, Its the Radical Muslim. Also, Chris has a point, Mexico could very well be a threat to our national security and way of life.

In my opinion, judging a people by their quality of justice/mercy toward their own citizens is usually helpful in evaluating a threat. By any measure, Iran is off the scale in terms of internal murder and brutalization of their own. Korea is about the same and what each lacks is a means to strike out and not be rendered to green glowing dust in return. Perhaps the PRC can keep Korea on a short choke chain but no one seems to be able to deal with Iran. Big problem I think.
