I can understand this govt ignoring illegals crossing our border. Hell, our govt hasn’t done anything about that really ever. But now we have murderous islamic terrorists on and across the border and dc does nothing but sue Arizona for trying to force the feds to do their job.
It’s pretty clear whose side obama and his team are on.
.......It also may be the first indication of Hezbollah’s growing influence......
The solution to the problem is learned from Saudi Arabia. When the Iranians began to attack from Yemen, The retaliation was swift and deadly. Noe that Iran is operating in Mexico the remedy should be applied.
As one who works closely with the special ops community, I feel compelled to note that there are ops READY TO GO on any number of fronts, with trained, prepared and dedicated operators chomping at the bit. All they’re waiting for is the go-ahead from political appointees and career bureaucrats. Waiting - and waiting....and waiting...
If we lose more citizens to terror, it won’t be because our knowledge is behind the curve, but because our leaders don’t have the fortitude to pull the trigger and loose the dogs of war. The dogs are ready.
