Four Mexican army soldiers entered southern Arizona and pointed their rifles at a U.S. Border Patrol agent early this week, the Border Patrol said.
The incident Sunday was the Mexican military’s 43rd incursion across the U.S. border since October, the agency said. However, it was unusual because firearms were involved. The Border Patrol and the Mexican government are investigating, Border Patrol spokesman Mike Scioli said.
Murdoc would like to be very clear about this. Sometimes I use snarkiness and sarcasm here, but this is straight-up exactly what I mean:
US military force should have been used against these four Mexican soldiers. They should all have been killed as quickly and violently as possible. Aircraft should have been used to kill and destroy any supporting Mexican forces on the Mexican side of the border. Any military and/or police forces should have been assumed to be “supporting.”
I would prefer that our aircraft stayed on our side of the border and destroyed their targets from our airspace, but I’m not terribly picky about that, particularly considering it would have been in response to an armed military incursion.
Again, I want to reiterate that this is not sarcasm. If our national policy is not to immediately destroy foreign military forces of any kind here without invitation, we are in trouble.
Obviously, we are in trouble.
