AND SO IT GROWS

Even as the first caravan of aliens marches toward our border with Mexico, 2 more have been organized and are doing the same thing. One of them, at least, is behaving violently, throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at Mexican border guards and police. The first one has already shrunk considerably in size, though. It peaked at 15,000 people and now is said to be about 4000, because of heat and exhaustion, as well as a lot of them accepting Mexico’s offer of help and staying there.

At the present time, over 7000 military personnel are now headed toward, and some already at, a variety of border points in California, Texas and Arizona. Oddly, New Mexico also borders Mexico but I’ve seen no mention of any military being posted on that border.

Pres. Trump recently said that he may increase the troops to 15,000 in number. Now here’s a problem. Earlier today he said that the troops, who are armed, are to consider a thrown rock to be the same as a rifle shot, and that he had authorized shooting back as a response.
Now he says “I didn’t say to shoot”. Okay, technically, no, he didn’t. He said he authorized such a response, which does mean that he gave that option to the commanders on the field. So in other words, it’s up to them to decide if they should shoot. That’s now unlikely to happen, since Pres. Trump is pretty clear now, also, that he just wants rock throwers arrested, not shot.

Well, if a hundred of them start throwing rocks and charging forward at once, I hope our troops start shooting them. If we don’t start taking a hard stand against this kind of attack on our country, it’s just going to keep getting worse.
