Russia invades Georgia. Mexico invades Texas.

by

 

The title delivers some bad news, but at least it’s not our Georgia.  Today Russia invaded the nation (and former Soviet republic) of Georgia.  Georgia had been seeking NATO membership, and has been regarded as a United States Ally.  If Georgia were in NATO right now, the United States, through NATO, would have been obliged to go to war with Russia.

 

Meanwhile, on the home front, Mexican troops have had repeated incursions into Texas.  One of the most recent incidents was on August 6, 2008.  In this incident Mexican troops held an American border Patrol officer at gunpoint.  Given that such incidents have become routine, one would think that the most powerful military in the world would be serving it’s primary function, and securing their homeland’s border.

 

I am not, for a moment, concerned that the Mexican military will soon conquer the United States of America. Rather, the fact that such a modest military as Mexico’s can invade with such ease, sends a signal, to the world, that invading the USA would be a piece of cake.

 

So, again, where are the United States armed forces when foreign troops are rolling across our border?  All over the world, of course.  For decades we have been busy defending countries that were fully capable of looking after their own affairs:  Japan, Korea, and the countries of the European Union.  Most recently the Iraqi occupation has consumed our military readiness, our wealth, and our youth.

 

So what does that have to do with Russia invading Georgia? Georgia had 2000 troops stationed in Iraq.  The Georgians sacrificed their own border security to help with the US lead occupation.  Georgia’s president is recalling its troops to defend their own border.  Perhaps our president should do the same.

    I know man. Ecuadorean warplanes have been seen near the bahamas. I’ma telling you those brown skin peoples are planning an all out invasion with the aid of the lenin brigade of east Germany! My god who swallows this tripe? Look at how many mexican citizens have died trying to cross the border. Do people actually believe this crap? Don’t try and hide your bigotry with a thin veil. You people are the same racist feces that has plagued the west for years. You always have to find someone to hate and persecute. Is it a lack of education or some deep insecurity that makes you go after those different from you. If Mexicans were not around, you would find someone else to blame your problems on. You are the most horrible and worthless human scum to walk the earth.

    10/10, good point Bob.

    These anti-immigration individuals will use anything to vilify hispanics such is this story. Mexico poses no threat to the US. Their military is in a very wide-scale anti-drug war for the past year or so since Mexico’s new president took office. They have other worries then to mascarade around in Texas. If these troops did enter the US and point guns at a US border patrol agent, it was most likely do to mistaken territorial boundaries. Also, the border cities are the hotbeds for this continuing war of the Mexican military vs the heavily financed drug cartels – the reason they are on the border in the first place. The Mexican government is taking these actions do to somewhat of the pressure of the US. And yes, Mexico’s military is extremely modest, they spend one of the least amounts of their total GDP% on their military among the top 15 or so largest economies in the world, which they are part of – having a policy of non-intervention on the world stage for the past 70 years.

    I don’t think characterizing Russia’s actions as an “invasion” are necessarily 100% accurate… Particularly when you fail to mention South Ossetia and it’s RIGHT to secede and be independent of the U.S./Israeli satellite Georgia.

    I don’t normally respond to comments on my own blog, but accusations of bigotry are where I draw the line.

    Bob Hope and James have either not read the entire article, or don’t care about truth. They apparently missed this paragraph:

    “I am not, for a moment, concerned that the Mexican military will soon conquer the United States of America. Rather, the fact that such a modest military as Mexico’s can invade with such ease, sends a signal, to the world, that invading the USA would be a piece of cake.”

    This is not about “Brown people” or Hispanics. I don’t even recognize the validity of these collectivist labels. It is about a foreign policy that not only harms people abroad, but leaves Americans less secure.

    It is very good that at least someone is bringing up the security of the border. It is quite displeasing to see someone being called a racist just for bringing up the critical issue of national security. Not only do the military forces of Mexico give a great amount of disrespect, the countless illegal immigrants who later commit crimes in the USA are causing tremendous problems, including the death of many USA Citizens. The highlighting of these concerns is a great patriotic act and being proactive for the sovereignty of the USA.

    this type of shit will lead to racial conflict… and it will act itself out in the not to distant future. comments of this sort rallies all people of mexican decent to stand against racist.
    while there is a real problem and it needs to be solved but scotty bullshit is not helping. there are millions of people of mexican decent and non of them want to invade this country. but as scotty bullshit says it, it would seem we are in mortal danger from attack. those military incursions were fake army soldiers and just plain cartel members… don’t be stupid scotty. ur bullshit is knee high and stinks of racisum. please go to hell and preach ur hate there.

  10. Scotty Boman Says:

    I must have spent far more time reading Kali’s comment then he spent reading my article. This isn’t an anti-Mexican diatribe; it’s anti-war. However, in comparison to the loving tone of his commentary, I suppose anything seems hateful. I don’t know what raciusm smells like (or even what it is), but Hell is only a few hours away from Detroit, and I will keep his advise in mind if I happen go camping by there when the weather warms up.

    Россия гораздо лучше, чем Соединенные Штаты, здесь, в России мы не придумывают истории, что другие страны имеют ядерное оружие прямо вторгаться их и украсть их нефть, пожалуйста, перестать думать, что Россия является плохой парень из мира, потому что остальной мир знает, что это-де-США реальную угрозу миру

    Привет из Санкт-Петербурга

    TRADUCTION
    (Russia is so much better than the United States, here in Russia we do not invent stories that other countries have nuclear weapons just invade them and steal their oil, please stop thinking that Russia is the bad guy of the world, because the rest of the world already knows that the United States de real threat to the world peace)

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that
    I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.
