War with Mexico

Weinberger suggests a war with Mexico in 2003. The jacket of his book The Next War states:

The Next War does not purport to predict the future. Rather, it aims to lay bare the dangers that America, and the world may soon face due to declining U.S. military readiness in the face of escalating world instability.

He didn't "predict" it, he says, he just used it as an example of what might happen, but Caspar Weinberger's scenario of a war with Mexico in the year 2003 rings true.

A powerful leader blames Mexico's problems on the "Gringo"
Unrest spreads throughout Mexico
Millions head north across the border
Drug gangs engage in terrorism in the U.S.
U.S. forced to invade Mexico to topple the regime.
