Preliminary Truth

Bob Owens blogs about a yet another tragic Border Patrol shooting in Arizona.  Most of us in Arizona are still reeling from the fallout from the shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, and now here’s Nicholas Ivie.

Sadly, the early reports suggest that Agent Ivie was killed by so-called friendly fire, not more of the Fast & Furious guns of yore.  As if this makes any difference to his family and friends.  Or his brothers-in-arms.

Last I heard, the current administration dialed back both rules of engagement and funding for the Border Patrol.  The only reason the onslaught of illegal aliens has abated somewhat is the poor American economy.  Obviously, not enough to cost these brave folks their jobs.

It cost them their lives.

Why aren’t we actively protecting our borders and striving to protect the brave souls who stand in the desert between us and them?

Rather than the vanguard, they’ve become cannon fodder for persons who want from this Country what they can’t get in their country of origin.  And become victims of tragic error.

Apparently, the area of action has much foliage, and it was night during the engagement.  Don’t they teach the Four Rules @ FLETC anymore?

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT’S BEYOND.

  1. Apparently, the only thing taught to the myriad Federal agents carry firearms (and that seems to be most of them, these days) is that everyone else is a legitimate target. And citizens are considered to be a threat. Why else would homeland security need all that ammo & 2,500 armored personnel carriers?

  2. We aren’t because the administration cannot afford for the truth of the BATTLE on the border get out… AND they hope if they ignore it, it will ‘go away’…

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

Certified EVIL!

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
