Just imagine what a wall could do.





Just imagine what a moat with spiky things and crocs could do.
Then a tunnel becomes a must larger endeavor. And I don’t know about you but I certainly don’t ever want to come face to face with a croc.

The price of drugs will be going up. I just heard that Pharmaceuticals are going up a lot this year too, I suppose big pharma is sort of a cartel too.

Slowing down the drugs coming into the country will simply increase demand. Prices will go up and the drug trade will become more lucrative.

Do you guys ever learn from our past mistakes?

What is this word “learn” you speak of?

We don't know what high-tech equipment the military brought with them. In fact, there's probably some detection devices and methods that are undisclosed...or top-secret. It's not like the 1960's, where human intelligence is all there is.

Or maybe it's just the combination of civilian/military/government/volunteers, and additional technologies, that are generating a cumulative effect?

Since there's no war on the horizon where our troops will be needed, we should build a few small bases in strategic locations, and keep 50,000 troops on our southern border permanently.

Imagine having those troops building that wall on the Southern Mexico border after they clean up the cartels and crime and make Mexico a US Territory under an elected Governor with the rights of the US constitution for their (our) citizens.

I can dream can't I?

Much smaller wall.

Make Mexico Safe Again... and part of the US. So much beachfront property

Don't worry. When it comes to LEGAL drugs, Democrats swear that reducing those prices will be near the top of their priority list, starting 1.1.2019. It's what their voters asked for...and what they campaigned on.

Well listen to what the directives were for the troops. It was as a supportive role to BCP. They re-inforced some walls and supposedly added some new ones in some area. They aren't there to scan cars/truck coming through the entry points. What have you been watching to even think that they are doing that type of thing?

Well then, I guess we need to focus on the mental aspect of the problem. Remove the DESIRE to use drugs, like we're working on removing the DESIRE from susceptible people, to shoot others with guns.

The huge question mark on exactly what equipment they brought with them would put at least a temporary dent in anything coming over the border.

Its just not worth the risk, they can as some mentioned hold back shipments and drive up demand then once they figure out what the risk is swoop in and make a killing.

Two days ago, President Trump directed the commanders to enhance the military's role. They're not just building structures and fences now. The degree of expansion is classified.

Never tell "the enemy" what your self-imposed limits are. Obama did that with ISIS in Iraq. Several American soldiers died due to having their hands tied by him.

The thing is, that I don't think that more policing is actually the solution to the drug problem.

I think that if you decriminalize drugs, create medical intervention schemes and supply drugs under prescription for reasonable prices it takes the criminal profitability out, ensures the maximum public safety and allows addicted users the ability to withdraw under medical supervision.

Yeah, it's not like they had anything to do with the current opiate epidemic, meth epidemic or the crack epidemic in the 80's.
