The purpose of this assignment is to help you decide the scenario you want to address and to help you prepare for your research paper in Unit VII. Go ahead and using the scenario for your research, which must relate to how terrorism, genetic engineering, genocide operations, bio warfare, or cyber terrorism may affect our efforts to mitigate future attacks globally or internationally, as well as the moral and ethical implications of the use of such weapons of mass destruction in a terrorist attack of this magnitude. Additionally, the paper must address the capabilities and design of future attacks as well as the strategies we must develop to prevent or diminish the impact of such attacks. You are encouraged to truly think outside of the box instead of just repeating previous efforts from terrorist organizations.

Scenario Three:

You are a senior officer in the U.S. Border Patrol and your intelligence group has received a warning that a terrorist cell is planning to launch an aerial biological attack across the southern borders of the United States, but the information you received does not identify a specific border area crossing point; therefore, you must create a plan to identify all probable entry points along the massive stretch of land that borders along Mexico and the United States. Additionally, you must plan to mitigate any attacks that could occur. Numerous scenarios can be identified, which include attacks by air, land, or by pre-planted improvised explosive devices, as well by other methods designed to release the biological hazard into the air or the local water supply system.

Your job is to identify all possible situations and provide a plan that will efficiently inspect and monitor each threatened area as well as possible sources of attack. Can you simply shut down all small plane traffic in the area? Could the biological hazard already be in place? Could the biological hazard be transported across the border through tunnels? What cities are probable targets for such attacks? What plans can you develop to ensure protection for all these cities? How far north can such attacks penetrate?

Your plan must include identification of all possible scenarios as well as your response plan based on the worst-case scenario providing proper response to the area or areas suffering from the attack as well as how you plan to protect first responders and healthcare facilities during and after the attack.

 

 

Also, for this assignment, you must include three sources. You are required to submit the scenario topic for your Unit VII Research Paper for approval. Provide a description of your topic and focus of your paper in the form of an abstract (at least 150 words) and provide a list of references you intend to use in your research.

The research paper topic assignment should be at least one page. Please forward your research scenario choice, abstract, and reference section to instructor as a single document.

ANSWER

Mitigating Aerial Biological Attacks on the U.S. Southern Border: Scenarios and Response Strategies

Abstract

This research paper aims to explore the potential threats posed by aerial biological attacks on the southern borders of the United States and develop comprehensive strategies to mitigate their impact. The focus is on addressing the specific challenges faced by the U.S. Border Patrol in identifying and responding to such attacks. The paper will analyze various scenarios, including attacks by air, land, pre-planted improvised explosive devices, and other methods intended to release biological hazards into the air or local water supply systems. Additionally, it will investigate the possibility of biological hazards being transported across the border through tunnels and identify probable target cities. The research will develop a comprehensive response plan, accounting for worst-case scenarios, including the protection of first responders and healthcare facilities. Ethical considerations and the moral implications of using weapons of mass destruction in terrorist attacks will also be discussed.
