Trump must think that things are going very badly for him.

We can infer from this and from Barr's coyness under oath that Donald has seen the full Mueller Report.

This is his usual MO when there's trouble; throw his supporters some red meat. In this instance he'll allow them to wet their whistles on some posse comitatus.

It is about time. I hope they are all active duty combat soldiers.

Why, are they the best at just sitting around and putting up razor wire all day?

"Why...?"

Because he has a fetish fantasy of us acting like North Korea or East Germany and shooting anybody that comes near the border.

Not sure why you needed that pointed out for you, DW.

They generally shoot the people that are trying to leave.

I hope they're combat soldiers too.
Those guys are used to sitting around in the heat being bored 99% of the time anyway, so they're pre-trained.
Plus they could use a little downtime.

The military industrial complex couldn't be happier. My guess is that Trump will bring in some of his buddies from Israel to help train the disposable heroes they choose to guard the local cross-border Taco Bell from radical Islamists posing as sweat-stained banditos from 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

Your cult is so easy to terrify yet you all think you're so tough.

Snuggling your guns doesn't make you feel safe?

It's become increasingly clear Trump is deliberately creating a crisis at the Southern Border that he can use to promote his sick political agenda. He doesn't care about anything except himself.

I hope they don't shoot themselves in the foot.

Oh nevermind. They won't have bullets. That would be way too risky. Would mess up the Show.

And you know what would be awesome?

If no one had bullets.

And anyway...they are just there to bring more home improvement supplies to Mexicans from Mexico 1.

Is that what you army pukes called it?

We called it R&R, i.e. getting drunk and partying with some Mexican whores (sex workers!).

But, yeah... "downtime" in Mexico used to be fun. But, that was then and this is now.

As I understand it, the US military are no longer allowed R&R in Mexican border towns.

It's about time they sent MORE? Why didn't they send the necessary amount in the first place?

Further, it's clearly having a deleterious effect considering the "surge." Or are you going to ignore the cause/effect outcomes, or lack there of?

If trump had any balls (they are probably sitting on Jared's desk tbh) he'd send troops to the border with orders to fire on anyone caught crossing illegally. It wouldn't make for good optics but it would definitely clear up this problem lickety-split, and you could be damn sure there wouldn't be any more of these tens-of-thousands strong caravans "spontaneously" organizing to march thousands of miles to come claim their free s-it being promised by democrats and their various backers.

Oh wonderful... now were are going to lose a border war.

It is about time. I hope they are all active duty combat soldiers. Soon, we will declare War on Mexico and liberate them from all that fattening food.

Wait until Sniper finds out there aren't any Taco Bells in Mexico.

Don't you have the balls to murder tens of thousands of people yourself? Clearly you believe it's the right thing to do and not illegal.

You're not only condoning the murder to tens of thousands, you're actually hoping for it to happen.

You people are sick.

"You people are sick."

Becoming more and more of an understatement these days.
