(An Asumen Pre-emptive Initiative)
War is . . . nothing but the continuation of state policy with other means. The political object is the goal, war is the means of reaching it, and the means can never be considered in isolation from their purposes.
Yet Reason frowns on War's unequal Game,
Where wasted Nations raise a single Name,
And mortgag'd States their Grandsires Wreaths regret
From Age to Age in everlasting Debt;
Wreaths which at last the dear-bought Right convey
To rust on Medals, or on Stones decay.
~Samuel Johnson, Vanity of Human Wishes
Momentous wars ~> good, bad, indifferent, or otherwise ~> since time immemorial have been started with the flimsiest of pretexts and were always justified ultimately by the outcome. History always belongs to those who are able to chronicle, sustain, and perpetuate the narrative.
In the most urgent case of the United States going to war with Mexico, we don’t need an abacus to count the almost innumerable ways. There is no need for any counting at all. Besides, what warm red blooded American would, with clear conscience, dare forget The Alamo?
But make no mistake about this ~> as long as the Blame America First (BAF) crowd as exemplified by the Obama Regime cohorts roam the corridors of power, America does not have the ghost of a chance to prevail over adversity of any kind. By their very nature, BAFsters are notorious prime apologists and scapegoat enablers for America’s egregious enemies. As one cognoscente aptly and succinctly observed:
Obama made a conscious decision to, in effect, dissolve the southern border, and, quite reasonably enough, the "unaccompanied minors" of Latin America opted to take him at his word. ~~Mark Steyn Challenges of Diversity
As the summer season simmers into a full throttle sizzle, we can expect, like in recent summers past, the influx of unaccompanied undocumented minor migrants to emerge from the underbrush of obscurity, like cockroaches in a greasy Manhattan kitchen table, into the limelight of national attention. The recent report of American Border Helicopter Patrol being fired on from the Mexican side of the border is only a sample of the turmoil to come.
“Pobre México. Tan lejos de Dios, tan cerca de los Estados Unidos," which means in English,
"Poor Mexico. So distant from God, so close to the United States."
Does Mexico believe that the massive influxes will serve to render U.S. immigration law meaningless, and thereby completely hred an already porous border?
~~Victor Davis Hanson (10-Jul-2014),
The Responsibility to Protect", the idea that sovereign states have a responsibility to protect their own citizens from avoidable catastrophe – from mass murder and rape, from starvation – but that when they are unwilling or unable to do so, that responsibility must be borne by the broader community of states.
Is Mexico a friend? Deliberately encouraging about a million of its own citizens each year to break our law and try to enter the U.S. illegally and facilitating the transit across its territory of thousands of Central Americans to swarm and overwhelm the U.S. border seem hardly amicable acts. In truth, Mexico invades a country with far greater numbers and with far more finesse than does Putin’s Russia.
I have this capital idea to effectively control the Southern Border once and for all. This is as foolproof as it is compassionate. It is an outside the box, thinking on your feet approach to border control.
As a preventive measure, we have to implement forthwith “The Pre-emptive Asumen Compromise,” a.k.a. the Asumen Compassionate Immigration Policy.
Since Mexico has abundantly proved that she is anyone but a neighbor who can be trusted, we have to control her southern border for her.
Boycotting Mexico would not do them or us any good. Make war with Mexico and teach them a lesson. That can only be done by invading, conquering, occupying and annexing Mexico. If we were willing and able to do this with Iraq, half a globe away, we should be able to do it with Mexico which is only on the other side of a porous fence.
Better yet, shorten the border by implementing the following forthwith ~> The U.S.-Mexican border should be relocated to south of Oaxaca where it borders with Chiapas and Tabasco (click on map for details). From Oaxaca to the north should all be U.S. territory. Anybody who does not want to join the U.S. should be sent off to south of this new border.
The new border being much shorter than the current one, it should be much easier to guard. And everybody shall live happily ever after.
