Presented (almost) without comment, this thought from Texas Governor Rick Perry (R-Confederacy)
When host Chuck Todd then asked Perry if the U.S. military should cross the border to help Mexico combat drug cartels, Perry said “we have to have use every aspect of law enforcement that we have, including the military.”
“Obviously, Mexico has to approve any type of assistance that we can give them,” Perry said. “But the fact of the matter is these are people who are highly motivated, with money, they are vicious, they are armed to the teeth. And I want to see them defeated. And any means we can to run these people off our border and to save Americans’ lives, we need to be engaged in.”
There are no problems anywhere in the world, inhabited by anyone, speaking any language, that a dose of heavy ordnance won’t cure. After all, ithis approach has been going so well lately.
