Is it Just Me?

Am I the only one who thinks that President Bush wants to make the illegal immigrants legal so that he'll have more tax revenue for his wars and more warm bodies for his military?

And that the stationing of troops along the border won't be temporary and those troops will eventually be there to not only keep others out, but to keep us in as well?

I can't help but think all the immiagration/border stuff is at least partly a smoke screen to keep our focus off other stuff that might be more upsetting.

Aren't we going to run out of troops somewhere along the way?

Yeah, I've been thinking that the whole illegal immigrant issue is being blown out of proportion.

Sure seems like we're going to run out of troops. The ones we've got are being run ragged. I read a statistic yesterday that said that 1 in 4 non-combat related deaths among US troops in Iraq is because of suicide.

War is hell.

I don't think I have ever read a truer quote. Three words that encapsulate every aspect and condition of war, regardless of who is right or wrong and who started what.

"and more warm bodies for his military."

Now that would be a brilliant idea (and I wouldn't rule it out by him either). Make 'em legal, train 'em, and give them weapons. Isn't that how much of this whole terrorist mess started in the first place?

Many of America's enemies of were at one time given training and support by America in order to help dispose of the other guy we didn't like.

War is hell and it is an ever viscious cycle.
