Can U.S., Mexico Forge International Park Along Texas Border?
If you're a regular National Public Radio listener, you likely caught John Burnett's story this morning on the prospects of the United States and Mexico creating a sprawling international peace park along the Texas-Mexico border.
It's a thought-provoking piece. After all, way back in 1932 the United States and Canada created the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park along the Montana-Canada border, so why, nearly eight decades later, can't something similar be created along the country's southern border?
Of course, some of the most obvious obstacles are drug traffickers and political opposition.
