1 But they're invisible, so they could be anywhere! And those plasma casters are killer

2 Figure one will be dedicated to coverage of Sheriff Joe.  She's had it in for him since her governor days.

3 Some face-huggers should do the trick.

4 You know what?  I'll take 6 Predators over nothing any day of the week.  But seriously, we need to upgrade our shit on the border today.  More agents, more Guardsmen with deputized powers, and some landmines.

5 $600 million ought to do the trick. Congress, write the check. I'm going on my seventh vacation.

6 5 I'd take a mine field over predators.

And motion activated sentry guns!

9 I was watching something on Animal Planet about lions that learned to eat illegal border crossers.The guy said the people beat on pots to scare the llions away but after awhile the banging was like a dinner bell.

10 You do realize we don't need the banging to know it's dinnertime, right?

11 Don't know what channel I was watching, but they interviewed a guy (cameraman?) from the Border Wars TV show. The way it sounds, that border region is more deadly and violent than any of Israel's these days. What was it, 78 people found dead in a single mass murder site? Shit, the terrorists hardly ever get that many in an Iraqi or Afghanistan attack.

12 Will the FAA even let them fly? So far, the FAA has been fiercely opposed to letting unmanned vehicles operate in American Airspace.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at August 31, 2010 05:28 AM (PLvLS)

13 The Predators have some FAA cleared airspace; however, that little un-commanded excursion by a UAV into DC airspace has not been addressed yet. I would expect to see some push-back.

14 Well, that's a thoroughly meaningless number without context.  Six may not seem like a lot, but how many is "enough?"  Ten? A million? Somewhere in between?

15 I feel so much safer living 15 miles from the Mexican border now.

Yeah but the three new drones are to follow Janet Brewer and Sherrif Joe around.

Isn't Big Sis Janet engaged to be married to Supreme Court Justice Elana Kagan?

How about some ED-209's for the border?  You have 10 seconds to comply...

Posted by: Mr. Elana Kagan at August 31, 2010 07:06 AM (lUV0r)

17 Did someone say "ED-209's"?

18 Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the number of Predator drone aircraft flying surveillance along the Southwest border will double by Jan. 1, reflecting the Obama administration's commitment to securing the U.S.-Mexico line.

Yeah some commitment, what good is a predator drone when all you do is look at them go by. If they did stop them they would just turn them lose because gee, its a human rights violation to stop people at the border.

19 So the Predators are meant to do what? Take high-definition, high resolution images of illegal aliens transiting the border? Then what? They surely won't be firing warning shots to say "cease and desist."

Meaningless, expensive toy meant to produce a facade of security to shut the "bigots" up. That's it. It will do no arresting to the flow of illegals. The only thing that works is a physical barrier as a force multiplier until actual reinforcing ground personnel can arrive (since shoot-to-kill policy will never be entertained), which is to say that what is actually needed is the very thing our amnesty happy government will studiously and expressly forbid.

Governor Perry of Texas tried a border surveillance technique (using American citizens' eyes as the guards) and abandoned it like everyone knew he would because it was designed only to be a politically-timed manipulation of voters' interests. The illusion of security lasted less than about four months - just enough time to help a reelection.
