There are more US troops separating the Koreas than along the US-Mexico border

Sheriff Paul Babeu, sheriff of Arizona's border Pinal County, wants to know why the US deploys 28,500 US troops along South Korea's border with North Korea but only 1200 US National Guardsmen along the state's border with Mexico until the end of September.

"What are we doing?" Babeu told by telephone. "We need 6,000 armed soldiers on our border to protect America. Homeland Security starts at home." He was talking about the National Guard.

Babeu said that only 520 guardsmen are deployed in Arizona, a state with a 276-mile border with Mexico and the state that has, according to the Department of Homeland Security, the greatest influx of illegal aliens. In 2010, approximately 212,000 illegal aliens were seized in the Tucson sector of Arizona - or 47 percent of all illegal aliens taken into custody.

"The gravest national security risk that we face is right here with the unsecure border with Mexico," Babeu said. "Right from the beginning, these 1,200 [National Guard] soldiers fall far short from what's really, truly needed to achieve a secure border."

According to Babeu

6,000 troops should be deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border: 3,000 in Arizona and 1,000 in each of the three other border states for a two-year period.

But don't expect something sensible like this to happen. Hmmm, maybe we could get Iran to threaten to invade the US and then use their nuclear weapons, which the Iranians claim are only for peaceful purposes, against us and then maybe there will be more troops safeguarding our borders.

But wait--our enemies are already doing that! As Norah Petersen revealed here last January

On Thursday, Fox News revealed that an Iranian-published book about suicide bombers was recently found in the Arizona desert:


Evidence of terrorists infiltrating our dangerously insecure southern border has persisted for years. It is an issue so pressing that even mainstream media sources have covered it.


But don't expect Washington to do anything about it. It has been nearly ten years since the worst terrorist attack on American soil and jihadists worldwide still have 24/7 access to our country. To suppose that somehow this will not lead to devastating consequences in the future is the most desperate form of foolish optimism.

Correct. Babeu labeled Obama's extension of National Guardsmen along the Arizona border as "pandering." In the meantime, according to liberals, we should welcome all the illegals, (not undocumented!) be culturally sensitive and learn their language and allow them in state college tuition while they collect benefits paid for from our taxes.
