Securing our borders There are those who think we can just fall back, bring our GI's home and then just secure our borders and everything will be fine. This is absolutely impossible. We can't even stop the importation of large shipments of drugs or illegal aliens, let alone a few determined and well funded, well trained, well equipped terrorist types. So, do you go after the heads of the organizations, their home base, the head of the snake to speak, or do you worry about the tail? Here are some facts to help you decide. Please be aware that only about 1/4 mile is probably needed to sneak into the US unobserved, and probably less in heavy timber, but of course any estimate like this depends on the terrain. Fifty (50) ft. may all that is needed if you are in a ravine, etc. Waterways are a even bigger problem. Take a look at this: Mexican Border Length 1,933 miles U.S.-Canadian border, excluding Alaska, is approximately 3,987 miles Alaska - Canada border 1583 miles Coastline measurements are more difficult because of the effects of tides and the necessarily arbitrary decisions that must be made about measuring bays, coves, islands, and inlets leading to streams and rivers. The figures used by the NOAA in administering the Coastal Zone Management program (16 U.S.C. 1451) comes to 88,612 miles (not including the Great Lakes). Let just round the number off to 100,000 miles, and just to be crazy, lets say we need eight men per mile per shift. That means we would need about 40 men per mile every week, plus men in the rear to reinforce those men in case they were overrun. In general, you need seven to nine support troops for every troop on the front line. So that would mean we would need 40,000,000 front line men plus supporting vehicles, equipment, night vision glasses, weapons, communication equipment, housing, insurance, medical care, retirement benefits, etc. etc. If we use a factor of 7 for support troops, we are looking at about 280,000,000 in the rear, plus 40,000,000 front line, men and women. The population of the US is about 300,000,000. Then, lets be concerned about our airport arrivals from foreign countries. That might take a few more thousand men, u think? Now I am wondering who is going to work and pay for all of this. All of our people are guarding our borders,and that includes children and old folks. I AM FOR GOING AFTER THE HEAD OF THE SNAKES, IN THEIR HOMELAND, NOT OURS.

We have had another call to secure our borders by hugged. I am bumping this blog to avoid repeating myself as a answer to her blog.

Quoting author: Hmmm.. Why couldn't we have energy poles, like telephone poles, that have a sensor, which reacts to anyone over 80lbs... like alarm scanners. Then, they get zapped, which wouldn't kill them, but would disable them long enough for authorities to find them and send them back...or to Iraq ...
Let me put it this way. If you give the US five years to prepare against terrorist, unlimited money, unlimited manpower, a total blank check. AND then you gave me the task of moving a million pounds of explosives into the US, and exploding those munitions, I could do it. Easily. Just give me 10 properly equipped Navy Seals, Army Rangers, or Marines, and I will "get er done". If you don't believe me, ask the Seals, Rangers, or Marines. This is what our military men know - and that the public, and certain presidential candidates, don't seem to understand. Securing our borders is a joke. You have to stop the idea of terrorism, and all those who support it.

Quoting author: We can't even stop white american kids from shooting people up in malls and colleges...so how can we secure our borders?
That is right, and most of the terrorist attacks in places like England, Spain, Germany, etc. are carried out by citizens of those countries who were under the influence of the radical muslum leaders. We have to go after the head of the snakes, the shamans and the leaders.
