South American Issue

The issue that this paper must address is U.S. Border Security. In order to help facilitate a secure southern border, Latin American countries (Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala) must eliminate crime, corruption, and graft in government in order for their economy’s to flourish which will help folks remain in country. Paper must have end notes. Develop a strategy proposal using the “Ends, Ways and Means” mode. First, develop strategic objectives (ends) based on the national interests, and the environment described in the Air Force Strategic Environment Assessment 2014-2034. “objectives (ends) explain ‘what’ needs to be accomplished…strategic objectives directly serve the strategic purpose—the desired end state”. Recall that, “objectives (ends) explain ‘what’ needs to be accomplished…strategic objectives directly serve the strategic purpose—the desired end state” Second, develop “strategic concepts (ways) [that] explain ‘how’ the objectives are to be accomplished by the employment of the instruments of power…Strategic concepts link resources to the objectives by addressing who does what, where, when, and why to explain how an objective will be achieved” . (See “Note on how the United States should apply the instruments of national power” below.) Third, keeping in mind that this is at the strategic level, so “determine the types and levels of resources [means] that are necessary to support the concepts of the strategy”
