Abstract:

To ensure success in the Global War on Terrorism, it is imperative that our fight against drug proliferation be integrated with our Global War on Terrorism initiatives. The application and use of Diplomatic, Informational, Military, Economic, Law Enforcement and Intelligence efforts in combating drug trafficking and countering terrorism will contribute to our Nations goal of maintaining a secure and stable environment. This paper will explain the correlation between illicit drug trade and terrorism and the synergized efforts needed to combat these detrimental activities. This monographs focus will be primarily on the dire need to synergize the war on drugs with the war on terrorism. There is a direct link between Illegal drug activity and destabilization of democracies around the world. Illegal drug production and proliferation not only undermines Americas culture and security but undermines the rest of the worlds stability. The intent of this monograph is to clearly show that the United States needs an aggressive strategy that integrates all available resources in our global fight to stop narco-terrorism. Measurable success in this fight is vital in stopping this clear and present danger to our national security and world stability.
