The media is going breathlessly report that President Trump is gonna send 800 troops to the American Southern Border….
Most people are gonna think these arecogmbat troops sent to stop the ‘caravan ‘ people from setting foot across the border…..
THAT, as I have pointed out in the past, is not things work….
The troops will provide ‘supporting’ non-combat help….
Defense Secretary James Mattis is expected to sign deployment orders as soon as Thursday that could send 800 or more troops to the border with Mexico to help border patrol authorities stop a caravan of migrants from Central America moving through Mexico to enter the US, according to three administration officials.
