U.S. representative Mo Brooks recently attracted attention by stating:
“As your congressman on the House floor, I will do anything short of shooting them. Anything that is lawful, it needs to be done because illegal aliens need to quit taking jobs from American citizens.”
If the primary job of our military is to protect our borders, and they are issued guns, then why not shoot invaders? Once, while touring the jungles of Borneo (on the Brunei side of the border) I asked my guide what would happen if I ventured into the Malaysian side of the border. His answer: “You would get shot”. In most of the world, if you violate the borders of a sovereign country, they shoot you. The military exists to protect the borders of the nation that enlists them. The guns they carry are not for show. They are loaded and the soldier is expected to use them.
It is only because Americans are a bunch of pansies, and our so-called “leaders” cowards and sellouts, that we have an illegal immigration problem to begin with. The hordes of Mexicans that violate our borders every day only dare to do so because they know they have nothing to fear. If our military did its job, in protecting our borders, there would be no need for a national debate on illegal immigration. We could, instead, concentrate on other matters, our crime rates would be reduced, we would save a lot of money and we would not be losing our nation’s character.
Very few would-be illegal immigrants would have to be shot before the Mexicans (and others) got the message. As a matter of fact, much less blood would be spilled than by letting them in. Shooting them would save lives. It would save many lives.
I am not a cruel man. I am not advocating a shoot-to-kill policy. Shoot them in the legs – at first.
