    Myself? I consider it basically suicidal to agree to such. :tinfoil:

    Y'know, on the occasions that someone actually calls INS on illegal aliens at construction job sites, the INS agents, who are mostly Hispanic around here, start way down at the beginning of the parking lot, sirens blaring hauling ass across the lot at about 3 mph. The illegals have time to finish their lunch THEN run before the INS will actually arrive. Then rather than pursue any of the illegals, the agents imemdiately launch and investigation into who made the call and what evidence that person had to do so.

    Same smell different name.

    Yes, but with the difference that the illegals at worst are drug pushers or gang bangers. Certainly not that we need to import criminals, but I'm much more concerned about terrorists.

    I was speaking to announcing one's presence by tipping off the terrorists (or in the case of my example the illegals).

    Certainly terrorists are a higher-level threat; however, I will point out that if that illegal alien construction worker can get in here undetected, so can Habib and a suticase full of germs or chemicals.

    Certainly true and the reason behind increased concern about the borders. Still and all, there's a difference between a blind eye and actual procedure to tip off the tipsters.

    I agree. It's dumb. Look where it got US. While we screwed around building up our forces in the ME for invasion, Saddam had enough time to move the entire US nuclear arsenal in and out of Iraq several times. Can't imagine why no WMDs were found!:eek2:

    You realize of course, this is the "classic", I'll tie one hand behind my back approach.

    The only problem with that approach?

    The other guy just shoots you in the head!

    Game over.............:shocked:
