With the Sinaloa talent for corrupting people, can we trust our military (if they are ever sent) to seal the border?

I believe we can trust the troops but I’m not so sure about the generals.

I get the feeling that the hard-charging, fire-eating generals of the past have all been replaced by bookish “get along” types who are only interested in their own careers and kissing the right butts.

Hopefully I’m wrong and we can assign our border security to another Blackjack Pershing with George Patton as one of his lieutenants. But we need to seal the border, forcefully ... NOW!

Oh, I’m quite sure about them. The warriors have been weeded out long ago. Successful brass are basically politicians now, and success for them entails playing the game to protect their prestige and their pensions, not their country.

Exactly what unconditional surrenders have we seen the brass preside over since WWII? They are not true believers, mind you, but most certainly they are useful idiots, enabling the undermining of our safety and our sovereignty to please our would-be tyrants.
