I don't get it. What are the troops going to do? Shoot unarmed women and children? Arrest them? Body slam anyone who dares try cross the border? What, exactly? Will they have M1A1's to back them up? Air support? Inquiring minds want to know.

Left wing circle jerk equals topics that are indefensible for your side. There seems to be a lot of them lately.

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly

Another epic Trump fail. Maybe if he put in more than 3 hours a day at the office he could pay attention to a few important details.

Every Guatemalan I've met has been a humble, good hearted person. Always liked working with them. Hard working and they don't complain. That's from my years working in different aspect of the construction industry.

Your response illustrates perfectly the idiocy of the gesture.

They are not going to strafe civilians with m134 gattling guns.

So, seriously, what tactics will they employ? WTF are they going to do?

military will be there to provide meals, set up shelters, logistics etc but can't actually do any policing. sounds like to me they're there to provide humanitarian relief to the migrants. Way to go Cheeto! Your plan is back firing on the intended motive. Your incompetency is going to help them

The way Trump tells it, hes setting up detainment camps and not letting people out anymore.

Throwing rocks isn't a good way to treat the people you're trying to become guests of.

Opening fire on people throwing rocks violates our rules of engagement but you probably knew that already.

Why do you defend foreign invaders throwing rocks at our troops? I know you hate our military but this is a new low for the left.

That's a ridiculous rule of engagement. Rocks are weapons.

But you did know that rules of engagement are completely arbitrary and self-created I'm sure

Nobody is doing that, just that maybe they should not be shot dead in a hypothetical rock throwing incident, but keep being terrified.

Besides you showing what a piece of shit you are, you're factually incorrect. They were not refugees. They were subjects of a tyrannical empire forced to travel back to where they were registered with the government to be taxed.

Quote:
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

Besides you showing what a piece of shit you are, you're factually incorrect. They were not refugees. They were subjects of a tyrannical empire forced to travel back to where they were registered with the government to be taxed.

Quote:
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
Now why I am I piece of shit? Because your ignorance of your supposed religion and unbelievable hypocrisy? Keep wetting the bed over imaginary rock throwers.

It wasn't even that actually, they fled to Egypt because of their own tyrannical provincial government, not Rome itself

Riled up?

How sensitive are you?

Hal started talking bout rocks for some reason, I responded with an analogy and then he started sputtering about rules of engagement.

Your ilk's compulsion with belittling any disagreement or concern with "fear" is just a retarded tactic to incite anger. It a dishonest and cheap way to cheat when debating topics

You and gromsdad have been harping on about non existent rock throwers and on edge about invaders for weeks now. Id say youre pretty riled up over this.

Huh?

The rock throwers thing started like 10 posts ago.

You really need to stop being so sensitive if you think this is "on edge." Calling this an invasion is describing exactly what it is. A marching column of thousands carrying their own flag has been an invasion since the beginning of time.

This is actually the military doing its job, although its very wasteful sending troops rather than just a single strafing run when they get to the border that would just send them back dancing

Sending our military to defend our border from outsiders is what our military exists for.

As long as we're having a publicity stunt, why doesn't the military make their run to the border part of one big parade?

Do unafraid people usually send 10000 troops to a border to protect from themselves from people 1,000 miles away on foot? If no, what's the justification?

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly


Your response illustrates perfectly the idiocy of the gesture.

They are not going to strafe civilians with m134 gattling guns.

So, seriously, what tactics will they employ? WTF are they going to do?

Why not?

It would stop the next caravan

I heard those little babies in strollers can huck a mean rock.


But what if the rocks are obsidian/dragonglass?


Wait, are the babies the White Walkers, or are we? Now I'm starting to worry.


I think it's been a long time (WWII?) since we were the good guys.

CNN came dangerously close to doing actual journalism with this story.

From one of my San Diego friends.

I recently came back from Guatemala working with the Fuego volcano relief efforts and a separate project along the Mexican border. At the time I expressed my concerns on line about those in the "caravan" who were gathering south of the Mexican border (which seemed forever). First, many on social media didn't know the caravan had to pass across Guatemala to reach Mexico, "We're not talking about Guatemala, Gina, we're talking about Honduras." Ok, so I had my work cut out for me. After they found a map, they didn't believe the caravan was being organized by outside organizers, they didn't believe they were not all from Honduras, and because CNN showed only families, didn't believe they were mostly young males while leftist organizations supplied them with goods and money at the border. If you live in Guatemala you learned this quite quickly, but not in the U.S. When you see reporters ignoring the activity and violence to create propaganda you hope and pray others are not so gullible. Finally, the news is trickling out that confirms what we experienced in Guatemala.

We now know the media-named "caravan migrants" are multi-cultural from at least 20 countries and include at least 270 convicted criminals. From the Department of Homeland Security report: "We continue to be concerned about individuals along the caravan route. In fact, over 270 individuals along the caravan route have criminal histories, including known gang membership." If that doesn't seem many to you, those include "a number of violent criminals examples include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, sexual assault on a child, and assault on a female." This was later clarified that 270 had previously been convicted, not just charged. How many are acceptable in your neighborhood? "We also continue to see individuals from over 20 countries in this flow from countries such as Somalia, India, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh." Countries where identifying criminals is not even possible.

Per the Guatemalan intelligence minister, the "caravan is employing tactics to push women and children to the front to act as human shields as the caravan pushes against its military forces."

Mexican officials have cofirmed criminals are part of the caravan. Videos from Guatemala show men dressed in identical clothing, sporting the same haircuts, handing out money to women to persuade them to move to the front of the caravan." Mexican Interior Minister Navarrete Prida said Tuesday during a radio interview. "Some members of the caravan threatened [Mexican] Migration Institute personnel and we have images showing many of them preparing Molotov cocktails. A senior Border Patrol official based in San Diego, Calif., reported 20 to 30 percent of the first caravan were children and families, but that number dropped even further as they moved up Mexico and even further lower in the second and third caravan. The third, mostly from El Salvador (located between Honduras and Guatemala) was turned away at Mexico's southern border.

We learned this week that MS-13, the gang that brings drugs into the U.S. for Mexican drug cartels, have also been found infiltrating the mass migration. Many do not know MS-13 so here's a review. Every day, 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses and tainted drugs Mexican cartels sneak across the border. The criminals who control this drug trade are some of the worst, most brutal gangsters ever to come into our country. MS-13 and drug cartels are made up of violent criminals who are not striving to achieve the American dream they are trying to kill it. It is widely reported that members of these gangs rape, behead, and bury their victims. These gangs move into a neighborhood or city and take control. They get their victims hooked on drugs and keep them coming back for more. MS-13 has roughly 10,000 members in at least 42 states and the District of Columbia, according to the most up-to-date FBI estimates.

As usual, the press will get around mentioning all of this after the midterms. Regardless, more people than ever are understanding why we need to secure our borders. Vetting out criminals and terrorists is necessary for security, an orderly system to control immigration is necessary for fairness and our economy. There are good ways and bad ways of doing this that are open for discussion to come up with a solution. What we must not do is ignore the problem or deny it exists.

Here is the deal. You got two risks: Under-reaction and over-reaction.

Every time trump tries the stoke the fires of the True Believers he fires up the other team.

See thats the thing. Trump pulls something out of his ass like that migrant caravan will be throwing rocks when they arrive and we will consider that a hostility and shoot them!

Then, Inevitably, GromsDad: why are you lefties defending rock throwers?! You hate our military! Never mind that he whole rock throwing scenario was just that a scenario, that Trump pulled out of his own ass!

Grommie, et al, buying those shit sandwiches by the dozen, and coming back for more!

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly
That would be tragic for MAGA(Make America Guatemala Again).


Every Guatemalan I've met has been a humble, good hearted person. Always liked working with them. Hard working and they don't complain. That's from my years working in different aspect of the construction industry.

Back in the day I briefly dated a cute little Guatemalan chick. Full on Mestizo.

For the record, I don't have a problem with Guatemalans, it's Guatemala that I don't want reproduced here. They're leaving their collective homelands for a reason, they are shitholes of corruption and inept government that make Detroit look like Stockholm.

"Good hearted people"? That's great, they're also fcuk-ups. I'm sorry, they just are.

$200 million to guard against a caravan that will likely never reach the US-Mexico border? Seems reasonable.

No a portion will likely make it and then wait at border while undergoing the process to apply for asylum. Although last I heard its under 4,000 now so its dropping significantly.

Reality is were spending $200mill to send troops that cant do much more than tell them which line to get in or form to fill out, basically the DMV model.

They can also shovel dirt, set up barbwire so the TV cameras can film it and Trump can use it for political gain.

They're also going to be deployed for Christmas. Because we care about the troops so much that we're taking them away from their families for Christmas.

Its entirely possible that I have. I dont normally ask for a DNA sample from the girls I have banged (but Ive always given them some of my DNA).

Ive dated a mulatto, a half German half chinese girl, quite a few mexicans and one full on black chick.

What is a trip is that cum and sweat on a woman affect their mood.

I wonder if some guys' cum and sweat make girls happier?

I say yeah.

When I shoot my load on women they always cry.

Nothing like a meme from April to make a point.

Did you look to see if Samantha Jaaskelainen has a twitter account?

Did you look to see if Susana Gonzalez is a real Honduran refugee?

Did you look to see if anyone on the internets had given this a look?

Of course not.

Has anyone pointed out that Trump is deploying soldiers with no clear objective or mission to fight a non-existent enemy?

Why aren't the "fight gub'ment tyranny" people up in arms about this?

Because everyone except for Ancaps thinks that defending borders is a valid use of government.

But is this an effective strategy for that goal?

To frame people who don't like trump as anti border security is dubious.

Defending ourselves here at home and protecting our borders is basically the only valid reason to use our military.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

It's optics in front of the midterms. (as I state the obvious)

Trump has polls telling him that 79% of Americans want secure borders and 68% oppose the lottery. 79% favor merit based over family based selection. They also favor reducing overall legal immigration levels. Trump has decided to use this as a rallying point in front of the election. The whole thing with the caravan is going to dissolve down the line IMO. Trump is just using it short term, spending money on a military deployment that is being done for no other reason than providing the optics he wants to use in an appeal to emotion.

Inexplicably he has decided to completely ignore the economy in favor of banging on the immigration drum. IMO, he could have done both, but he either thinks we are too dumb to concentrate on two issues at once or he's too dumb to concentrate on two issues at once.

Defending borders is a valid use of the military, when there's a threat. Caravan of asylum seekers =/= North Korean troops.

The economy improvement is still pretty top-heavy. 401(k)'s and white collar workers doing great, the blue collar folks still stuck in a rut. That's not Trump's fault, but he probably understands that all the good economic statistics don't mean much to people who haven't seen much improvement in their standard of living.

WTF are you talking about, defending the borders from what?

Who is attacking us?

I know that fucktards like you now think that rocks=guns but I doubt that the ALIENES KARAVNE can throw rocks from 1000 miles away.

ah, yes, that's a solid way to manage the military - the old "eye of the beholder" test.

You'll be hard-pressed to find someone in the higher ranks of the military who believes asylum seekers walking 1,000 miles away are a threat to our national security.

"A military strained by 17 years of war and sequestration doesn't need this," tweeted David Lapan, a former Homeland Security spokesman for the Trump administration and a former Marine. "Service members who have repeatedly spent long periods of time away from home don't need this. And the US doesn't need its military to 'defend' against a group of unarmed migrants, inc. many women & kids."

I've said repeatedly this is a stunt. We have technology (drones, aircraft) that preclude the use of troops even if this was an actual threat

Doesn't change the fact that threat is still in the eye of the beholder

Defending borders is a valid use of the military, when there's a threat. Caravan of asylum seekers =/= North Korean troops.

Threat is in the eye of the beholder

WTF are you talking about, defending the borders from what?

Who is attacking us?

I know that fucktards like you now think that rocks=guns but I doubt that the ALIENES KARAVNE can throw rocks from 1000 miles away.

All throughout history a massed group of people, whether armed or not, is looked at as a potential invasion. This is really simple stuff here


Link?

I'd love to see another example of unarmed people 1000 miles away on foot who have repeatedly said they want to legally apply for asylum having drawn 10,000 troops to a border.

Saying "All throughout history a massed group of people, whether armed or not, is looked at as a potential invasion. This is really simple stuff here" once was all I noticed.

If you think it's a stunt, why the effort to justify it?

So the "mission" (mostly putting up barbed wire and digging latrines) is supposed to end Dec. 15 and cost $72million.

The caravan is supposed to arrive well after Dec. 15.

What is/was the purpose of this mission?

Do you really have to ask? It was a political stunt, another thing to get his base riled up and outraged over. For his base it was a success. fake rocks, foreign invaders, embedded isis members; it all happened to them.

So basically his supporters are OK with wasting $72 million (and we all know that figure will turn out to be twice that amount) as long as it induces liberal tears.

I take you've ignored FF's Caravan Wall post, or just in denial.

Caravan has been in TJ almost a week now growing by the 100's a day and well over half (6000 and growing) are already there straining TJ's community services. UN, Red Cross and international aid groups are already being called in to stem this building humanitarian crisis.

But ya, nothing out of the ordinary and just another day in TJ. rolleyes

Many probably took Mexico's bullet train to get there so quick.



So many women and children on these rides. pokestick

We need to adopt this type of mass transit in So Cal. This is the ultimate in green eco-travel. Look how little it impacts the environment? Carbon footprints are near nothing per person. Make it from one of those all electric battery Tesla big rigs and people would be raving for more.

Many bitch about our MetroLink, Coaster and Bullet train grossly over budget costs. This is much more cost efficient, AND you get to really know your fellow commuters much more intimately. hat

You haven't responded to the question about the mission ending dec 15 but much of the caravan still to arrive after that date. And a correction to my previous post.....the cost is upwards of $210 million.

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly

No hand-thrown rock is going to overcome proper riot gear. Why is Donnie BooBoo sending ill-equipped troops to the border if he fears rocks? Does he hate his military?

It's to back up the Border Patrol and their other sub-departments only.

More to make the migrants think twice before rushing the border than anything.

But it seems activists that are pushing them don't give a shit what happens to humans on either side of this debacle. Pueblo Sin Fronteras should be held accountable for any confrontations here.

Did they do that on the Guatemala border?

Many that pushed thru think they can do it again on the USA border, thanks to embedded Pueblo Sin Fronteras activists cheering them on.

So what should be done with the migrants since it appears very few will actually qualify for asylum?

That's only the first try.

But "babies are crying" (while they drag them along with jumpers) bawling

Just another day in lovely sunny TJ. cheers

Wow your fantasy is coming true! You must be stoked.

Youll be even happier when those kids throwing pebbles from nearly 80 yards at a metal fence are shot too I bet!


Not happy about any of this, especially if it comes to violence that PSF provokes.

Saw this coming weeks ago, while you guys on the left thought it was nothing but hype, while the MSM also played it down as something 1000 miles away, and not worthy of ANY attention. Why bother fortifying the border, they're not even here yet. Now here we are, days if not weeks ahead of schedule, "somehow"?

And they're already trying to rush the border.

No one's going to get shot by actual bullets, unless they physically threaten a BP agent with deadly force. The Army is/was there mostly to help engineer and fortify the border areas with concertina wire and concrete barriers. They have the heavy equipment on hand, and are trained to do that quickly all over the world when fortifications are needed in a hurry. They will be gone for the most part by Dec. 15, except for maybe a few kept on stand-by if border rushes get bigger and more aggressive in the coming days and weeks.

There's a unconfirmed report that a few Hondurans (or others) in the group don't really care about asylum, and just want to crash the border and get as far as they can into the USA.

Take this report with a hit of a bong, grain of salt, or whatever lifts your skirt. It is pretty comical, but who knows? monkey

Because weeks ago it was fantasy and fear tactic rhetoric from trump and his ilk. That part went completely over your head. And I see now youve moved to the next fantasy you pray will come true.

The rock thrower still is an extremely minor incident to a bigger picture. But your cherry picking what you can to stoke your spin on the whole situation.
