Back about 4 years ago, while this problem was getting incrementally worse, I was G7'd down south to look at developing a high resolution lethal
electrified fencing system for the US/Mexican border. It would have had all the bells and whistles of course, including capacitive signature analysis
and buried acoustic sensors and other toys, so that we could tell velocity, distances, approach paths and know where to pick up the carcasses of, what
do the politically correct call them these days? insurgents?
Homeland Security and the US Federal Government dropped the ball, that was in 2006. If you think they are going to do anything now in a worse economy,
while they're all "packing," I believe you're dreaming. Have you seen the trends, CEO's, politicians and celebrities (like Oprah the cow is gonna
breed) are getting ready to hunker down it appears.
I know a lot of people think that killing insurgents, terrorist or what have you, may be a little coarse. We call it rude, but still necessary and if
you have never come up against a terrorist/insurgent on a border that's armed with an AK or some flavour of the month "on sale" automatic or had a
friend or relative die at the hands of/or because of, one of these monsters, I really can't see how you have an opinion.
Sometimes, evil must be fought with greater evil (but at least we have leashes). The dogs of war are well trained and we are many. Demand what you
need from your elected representatives and force them to uphold the law. One thing you might recall from the Iraq/Afghani conflicts is that now
mercenary armies are legal (Xe) so what is to stop the border states from acquiring their own mercs and security engineers? Seems like a free for all
during a free fall to me.
But what do I know....
