I’m all for winning any war we get involved in – if it’s worth fighting, it’s damned sure worth winning.
But why are we allowing Mexico to wage a border war against this country without acknowledging it? The Mexican government provides assistance to anyone who wants to invade the United States. They publish comic books to encourage the illiterate. They’re handing out GPS devices to show the easiest routes. They’re doing little to nothing to fight the drug runners who control their side of the border. They lobby our politicians to hamstring our efforts to pass laws to protect ourselves.
Assigning National Guardsmen to assist the Border Patrol was a good idea… but let’s give them ammo and rules of engagement that allow them to defend themselves when necessary. It’s obviously necessary.
A U.S. Border Patrol entry Identification Team site was overrun Wednesday night along Arizona’s border with Mexico.
According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state’s West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.
