'Does the United States military exist only to defend the borders of foreign countries in the Middle East or is it allowed to defend the borders of the U.S. against terrorist cartels, espionage, infiltrations, and smuggling?'

Sound like a stupid question? Here's one that's going to sound even MORE stupid:

Do US military troops have the right to DEFED THEMSELVES in their own country, on their own die of the border, when approached by foreign troops who order them to surrender their weapons?


According to a NorthCom spokesman, the military troops are there NOT in a Law Enforcement capacity.
-- Well, NO SHIT! The US military is used for the defense of the United States...and since there is an illegal invasion going on right now, why can't they be accepted as being there to protect this nation during this 'invasion'?


Military's mission doesn't include enforcement, so smugglers cross Rio Grande right in front of them

We are not being invaded. Illegal immigrants are not our enemies.

Just try to take your head out of your ass for a change!

No but they absolutely ought to be wiping out foreign troops who point weapons at them inside our border.

They should also be using some of the less lethal means of crowd control to dissipate hordes of illegals trying to breech barriers.

Considering those coming across our border are violating our countries sovereignty, this is an act of war. Sorry... but its time to start repelling the invaders..

The Branch Davidians did not fight the US Military. It was the ATF, FBI, and Texas rangers.

If a president can use the U.S. Army to attack American civilians it should be a moot point to use them to repel a hoard of illegal criminals at he border. Then again maybe the rules are different for a republican administration.

The posse comitatus act specifically forbids the military from enforcing civilian law. We are not being invaded by any enemy soldiers. You want to blow up a minor incident and turn it into a shooting incident? You are crazy.

I've already had a Colombian immigrant (a friend of my Son's) stay with me for a while, so I don't mind helping them out.

Oh yeah...my wife is also an immigrant.

Either way, my willingness to host immigrants in my house has nothing to do with the question of whether the U.S. is being invaded.

Your statement is blatantly illogical.
