Wouldn’t it be better to stop an attack before it happens by discouraging or at least by making it difficult to accomplish?
Stopping an attack not only protects the country targeted, but protects the country from where the would-be attackers came. Do you think we would have carpet bombed Afghanistan and Irag if we weren’t attacked on 9-11 and consequently caused all that suffering and damage to mind, body and soil?
It’s better to be prepared than not prepared.
We were surprised by the Japanese and twice when the New York Towers fell under the spell of deviated minds.
Better safe than sorry?
Yes, especially since we have a track record of trusting world citizens and entities – friend and foe alike – only to be taken unawares by horrific deeds that force us to fight, to spend our treasure to protect what remains of the rest of us including those souls in lands not connected to ours who only benefit if we fight back when we’re attacked. If the most powerful nation in the world doesn’t fight back, then where does that leave the less powerful countries, except even more vulnerable to the same deviated minds?
The oceans east and west create a natural border protected easily by ships. To the north is a friend and the terrain complicated making the USA not easily accessible, except through established portals of entry.
The southern border is wide open to deceit proven by fifteen million people who simply walked or were driven in to live in the USA undocumented with no plans of becoming a loyal citizen, but instead to reap the benefits of living as outlaws.
The USA is their cash cow benefiting citizens and governments of their countries of origin laying wide open for exploitation and potential harm those who actually built this country. And again, judging by the rhetoric of hate toward our system and our leaders, we have just cause for concern and just reason to expect rapid action to diminish our vulnerabilities at our southern border.
The mentality of those who cross into the USA illegally is one of entitlement, privilege and disrespect for the citizens of the USA and their so-called boundaries.
It’s just a fence. Who put it here anyway? There’s no fence up ahead. What does it mean?
No one demands entry unless there is an unspoken threat that accompanies the demand if not met.
Historically immigrants did not make such demands. They came to build not to tear down. They didn’t come with the purpose of living underground. They helped their neighbor; they didn’t hide from them.
The immigrant from the south is not intellectually capable of respecting a border it cannot actually see, that immediately tells them they are at the border of the USA and physically blocks them from entering unless they meet the criteria of the laws of that nation.
The military cannot effectively protect a border that has no physical structure identifying it as a border. A sign directs traffic it doesn’t stop it. A person will stop only if they fear getting caught. So, a sign absent a physical structure in a wide open space is an invitation to come in, even if the sign says not to.
The USA southern border is unique in that millions of people have over many years flowed unabated into the USA illegally and legally, for the purpose of politically changing the demographics of this country to match their countries of origin and turning the USA into a Spanish speaking nation.
Most countries don’t have that issue to deal with. We have millions of undocumented people in the USA right now, who are being led by political groups and criminal entities down a path that returns our country to the Mafia days, only this time with Spanish roots, because we did not have a physical contiguous structure at the line of demarcation.
An imaginary line in the sand is not a deterrent to people entering the USA illegally. The border thus becomes an abstract idea rather than a tool to aid in legal entry.
The store owner locks his/her doors at night to keep out thieves and those who through a deviated mind seek to do damage for damage sake.
A castle has a moat around it so those within can sleep at night and children can play at day and women can be at peace while working on behalf of their families who want to survive and thrive, not die for an historically proven paradigm that claims to create major social change only through violent means or in conjunction with dialogue.
Those paradigms are obsolete. The reason we still need the moat around the castle and the lock on the merchant’s door is not because we’re cruel and selfish, but because that deviated mindset still exists in humankind. That mind lives to operate for the thrill of disruption and the purpose of destruction.
Wiping everything out and starting over is their game plan. Fair doesn’t enter into the plan. It’s based on disruption rather than cooperation supposedly to make the world a safer place, yet SAFE has never been on their radar or a component of changes they propose.
A huge suffering they always cite as necessary prior to significant meaningful social change. Why? Because they’re too intellectually lazy to devise a new plan, a different way, staying instead with what the world knows from the past.
So I would say, what then did we learn from the holocausts of the past that makes us want to repeat them for the purpose of creating a climate for significant meaningful social change now?
Nothing? How is the world better if we’re still dropping bombs and blowing up theaters and stadiums and massacring children?
The letting of the blood is not the cure for deviated mindsets, though we keep spilling it thinking it worked in the past. It has never been the cure. Otherwise we would not be in the same place. That was a psychological construct based on faulty logic resulting in experimentation that proved ineffective.
It’s an illusion.
The border is an illusion absent a physical structure to prove its existence to the deviated mindset. To them It’s A Mirage in the desert that disappears when approached, whispering to the deviated mindset that God once more parted the sea in the middle of the desert just for them, allowing them to pass without first gaining permission into a foreign land for exploitation purposes. They’re not coming to build a life; they’re coming to build a kingdom. Otherwise they would live above ground. Strength in numbers is their rallying call.
Build with haste and care. Spare no expense.
