    Maybe you would be in favor of nuking Mexico City. That ought to teach em!
    No you need to read it because it's Obama's job to secure the borders, and provide security of the border patrol. Or maybe you like seeing our border agents get shot up, hmmm? What I proposed was a valid threat aimed at their president, nowhere did I mention nukes...............that's obviously your ridiculous fantasy.

    That isn't Obama's job, he isn't the first line in air traffic control or border patrol. But we also don't know if the Mexican authorities alerted us either.

    It isn't his job? So what is his job? Golf maybe? Fundraising? Ignoring the Constitution? Tell me.

    Then arrest the helicopter pilot and everyone on board and exchange them for Sgt. Tahmooressi, or shoot down the next Mexican choppers to accidentally cross the border and tell the Mexican government to go pound salt.
    Sounds like the actions of a terrorist, the whole taking hostages and all. Last I checked the US govt isn't a terrorist organization.

    It's referred to as a misdirection, or a diversion. Everyone goes towards where the shots were fired while the mule crosses in plain sight.

    Seems of late CONs love the misdirection, 2 shots fired, not an attempt to mimic a 'gun' fight but more like a coyote (4 footed type) hunter. Chopper lands and makes contact to apologize. But out in the boonies it takes more than crossing the border to be 'safe' from detection and intervention.

    Now did 'everyone' go to the 2 shots fired, or are you just blowing smoke with some CON game 'what-ifs'????

    Who are these border agents who were "shot up"?

    And you accuse me of ridiculous fantasy?

    No, you love seeing our border agents and soldiers get shot up when a Democrat is in office. You hate America and its servicemen. You want to turn America into a nation that behaves like some street gang. You hate everything we stand for.

    No cordinating front line activities at the border is not Obama's job. Nor is cordinating ATC across the country either. Yes he should talk to the Mexician government about the incident, but handling day to day operations of numerous government agencies is a little
    silly.
