    Babeu also said it was “tremendous” to have received the Sheriff of the Year award, which he said he accepted on behalf of the 700 men and women who work with him, the citizens of Arizona and for the state. Babeu added that he believed the work law enforcement is doing in Arizona also played a role.

    “I think it has everything to do with us standing up for America, standing up for the rule of law and not being shouted down by the president and his men trying to make like somehow we’re being un-American for enforcing the law and wanting a secure border,” Babeu said.

    He said he thinks President Barack Obama has made race the issue instead of fulfilling his job of protecting the American people by enforcing immigration laws.

    “It’s not about race, color or national origin,” Babeu said. “It’s about enforcing the law, Mr. President. That’s our job.”

    Our government is broken, has been for many years and it needs fixing.

    Half a Million Troops Could Seal the Southwest Border, Says Border Protection Chief
    Friday, August 05, 2011 – Sealing the border between the United States and Mexico completely is “theoretically” possible, but Americans would not want to pay “the costs that would be involved,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner Alan Bersin said Thursday.

    Speaks lowly for the Arizona education system. There are less than 100 US troops who serve in the JSA, and that number is probably closer to 50. The ROKs patrol their own border.

    The majority of US troops are REMFs. It's the ROKs who are on the front lines.

    It's always been my personal opinion (I've served two tours there) that we're not there to defend the South against the North.

    We're there to keep the South from attacking the North.

    I served at camp liberty bell. I never got that impression, although there were factions that wanted too.

    I think you are misguided in the belief we are there to prevent the south going north.

    Special hat tip to the ROKs, they are some tough SOBs.

    Because the Korean border is FAR MORE IMPORTANT than the US border.

    American forces are a trip wire. If we left the pennisula and the North decided to head south, it would take political will to move forces in to help the South Koreans.

    With american's in place, the inital casualties would include american troops. This would be an attack on us, not just the SK's, requiring a response no matter how un-militaristc the american administration at the time could be.

    Our troops are there to add to the NK's equation when deciding whether to attack. They know that the US will respond, and have to wiegh that when deciding if an attack south will suceed.
