Will it be different this time?
Once again, federalized Army and Air Guard personnel are being deployed to our southern “border” to help detect and apprehend cross-border drug traffickers, illegal gun traffickers, and illegal immigrants.
It is dangerous work and a dangerous place to be!
Will we, once again, be treated to painful photos of uniformed American soldiers walking around in hostile areas, dangerously vulnerable, but in a disgraceful state of unreadiness, carrying rifles and pistols which are obviously unloaded, or not carrying guns at all (even unloaded ones)?
Will these soldiers be “lead,” once again by nervous, risk-averse “commanders” (top to bottom) who are piteously afraid and therefore don’t trust them (nor even themselves) with guns?
This kind of insanity was, unfortunately, no surprise during the BHO, nor even the GWB, Administrations.
But, under DJT/Mattis. This was all supposed to change!
Our pathetic “unarmed forces,” our self-demeaning fearfulness, were to be a thing of the past!
Will we, once again, see that sheep don’t trust sheepdogs any more than they trust wolves?
When they see nothing has changed, Pancho Villa’s great grandsons will no doubt be thrilled with this, beyond idiotic, “unarmed force” response from still-sissified (and thus “gun-free”) America.
“We are not afraid to entrust American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market, is a nation that is afraid of its own people.”
John F Kennedy
