More To Worry About

The conflict awaits the US troops on the border as the murderous horde marches on (that is sarcasm before some person thinks I meant that drivel)……

President Trump said Wednesday the number of military troops deployed to the US-Mexican border could reach 15,000—roughly double the number the Pentagon said it currently plans for a mission whose dimensions are shifting daily, per the AP. The Pentagon said “more than 7,000” troops were being sent to the Southwest border to support the Customs and Border Protection agents, and officials said that number could reach a maximum of about 8,000 under present plans.

That about equals the troop deployment we have an actual war zone, Afghanistan……

There may be more to worry about than some bare foot walkers…….While the president is using the troops as a political prop word has come out from China….

China’s President Xi Jinping ordered the military region responsible for monitoring the South China Sea and Taiwan to “assess the situation it is facing and boost its capabilities so it can handle any emergency” as tensions continue to mount over the future of the South China Sea and Taiwan, while diplomatic relations between Washington and Beijing hit rock bottom.


“It’s necessary to strengthen the mission … and concentrate preparations for fighting a war,” Xi said. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly. “We have to step up combat readiness exercises, joint exercises and confrontational exercises to enhance servicemen’s capabilities and preparation for war” the president-for-life added.

Maybe the military would be better used to counter the possibility of an actual threat.

Just saying.

  1. When so many troops are deployed on domestic missions, it is fairly obvious that other countries are going to flex their military muscles as a consequence. It’s all part of the ‘Great Game’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have been saying for years that we should withdraw our troops and forces from Asia. Past time that we can control events there. It is killing our budget to try to maintain forces all over the world. Defense budget is way too high.

    1. Too high and continues to expand ever higher….and new boogey men are found to justify the higher expenditures….it is a vicious cycle that the M-IC feeds and profits soar….chuq
