Obama Sends Strykers to the Border. But what will they do?

Obama Sends Strykers to the Border. But what will they do?

Rick Oltman of The Immigration Tea Party -- The Examiner -- February 10

U.S. military to the border... OUR border, for a change

Stryker combat vehicle spotted south on SR 90 toward at 1 p.m. Thursday. JTF north is based at Ft. Bliss, Texas – 5 hrs. away. (See map)
...JTF North will deploy next week. The following week the Republicans will be debating in Mesa and the week after that is the Arizona Presidential Primary Election. Coincidence?
One AP news report says the military will only be in a "support role," not enforcement.
That is not what I hear. They will be deploying in known drug trafficking areas with night vision devices and other technology. And, since the drug mules now are now accompanied by two men with AK-47s, one in front and one in the rear (a group matching this description was reported near Willcox, AZ over 60 miles north of the border as recently as Wednesday of this week) our troops had better be armed, and I don't mean with bean bag rounds.
Glenn Spencer of American Patrol passed a convoy of Army Stryker vehicles headed southbound on Hwy. 90 towards Ft. Huachuca and Sierra Vista on Thursday. He posted a video on the American Patrol website. Any connection to JTFN is not confirmed at this time.
Everything the federal government says and does regarding border security has to be viewed askance.
On the other hand, this could be a sincere effort.
American Patrol Report
The Strykers spotted by ABP were no doubt part of the JTF deployment. ABP, also first to spot Strykers deployed to New Mexico back in 2005, will work to report on their use.

Alittle late, a little too little , a little like political shuffeling and photo- op propaganda on the first impression. I don't care where they want to store the gear. It's what are they actually going to do and produce with it. When it comes to confidence in this administration for border security I have as little faith as I did in the one before it.

Which way are my people going? I have to lead them there!

No problem here . Just

No problem here . Just really frustrated with our national leadership riding out the calendar posturing , and not accomplishing much. If I tried that act at work I'd be in a soup line. Not the payroll of taxpayer burden.

cure allot of it.

They sure as hell wouldn't be flying Ultralights over and jacking up the fence sections and walking under a wall made up of Autonomously controlled Mini Guns and such....

Signs explaining why you don't want to go any closer to the border and it's on you if you do...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
