The American government has oft times shown its fondness for publicizing our military adventures on television. Imagine, if you will, that a serious President, a genuine Commander-in-Chief called upon the military to defend our border with Mexico.
Now picture what would happen if a few helicopter gunship fired strafing shots from their miniguns at invaders coming across the border. No warning shots, no games, but a real military defense of the sovereign border of the United States of America.
The President next holds a press conference and releases footage of the air defense of our border and how effective it was. The President informs the Mexican government that if it fails to stop the invasion, the President will request a declaration of war on Mexico for invading the USA.
Word would travel very quickly through Mexico and down through Central America, that the cake walk into the US is over, the gravy train has tipped, and the US will defend its border. The Mexican government would immediately try to curb the invasion, or face a military assault on the central government. Russia and China would get the message that the USA is back in business and will defend its interests in Latin America.
This would cost us very little money. In fact, it would save us trillions of dollars and secure our future as a nation. All we have to do is prove that we are serious and we will be taken seriously. Next, we can begin to deport all illegals to Mexico and let them sort it out. If they object, we can cut off trade with Mexico.
All it takes is serious leadership to defend our nation. It is not only cheaper than subversion, it will become profitable for us.
So why build an expensive wall on the border, when a few helicopter gunships and an iron will can solve the problem overnight?
