The mechanism of enhanced ionization that occured at a critical internuclear distance in the two electron symmetric linear triatomic molecules subjected to an ultrashort laser pulses was investigated. The results were obtained by solving the time dependent Schrodinger equation for one dimensional models. The localization of the electron resulted from charge resonance effects and was used to explain recent exact numerical simulations of ionization in electron systems. The ground state was found to be triangular and the linear geometry existed above ground states.
