The invasion looms!
You have heard the silliness I am sure. The mass of people walking their way to the border with the US is somehow a threat to our national security……first what moronic bullshit!
The Defense Department says it’s sending 5,200 active duty troops to “harden” the southern border against a migrant caravan making its way through Mexico, the AP reports. Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy tells reporters that 800 soldiers were en route on Monday and that the remainder of the troops would be at the southwest border by the end of the week. That’s in addition to the more than 2,000 members of the National Guard already providing assistance at the border now. Officials say the troops will provide “mission enhancing capabilities” and will be armed. The announcement comes as President Trump has been trying to focus on the caravan just a week before the midterm elections.
O’Shaughnessy says the military will cooperate with US Customs and Border Patrol as it first strengthens the border in Texas, then Arizona and California, the Washington Post reports. Among the deployed are US Army Corps of Engineers members, three combat engineer battalions, helicopters with night-vision capabilities to tell the CBP where help is needed, military police units, and cargo aircraft including a C-17 and three C-130s. The Pentagon has already sent down 22 miles of concertina wire and plans to send enough to cover 150 miles. The operation is called Operation Faithful. “Border security is national security,” O’Shaughnessy said Monday, per USA Today.
Another thought—–S Forces Deployed: Africa — 1000 Syria — 2000 Iraq — 5000 Afghanistan — 8000 US Southern Border — 8200* + regular CBP * Total includes: 5200 active duty + 2000 National Guard
First why the need for troops? We already have 2000+ on the border. What happens if they make it to the border…..are the troops willing to shot and kill unarmed civilians?
Of course if you ask a supporter there are diseased ridden people in the midst and/or gang members with all their weapons and drugs and stuff.
This is all so fucking silly!
Then we need to have a debate on immigration…..that is about as worthless an endeavor as climate change or guns….Americans are NOT capable of having a discourse on these subjects because critical thinking has bee replaced with personality worship and slogans and most important…HATRED!
Then there are all those “really bad people” that are in this caravan, according to Our Dear Supreme Leader, Trump….there are these bad people but they are not in the “caravan” these people are Trump and the spineless enablers….THESE ARE HOLLOW PATHETIC LITTLE PEOPLE!
