    For the record I am completely on board with the proposal that we should pull all of our active duty military personnel serving overseas and station them along the Mexican border.

    Be a pretty **** sweet deal for the local economy, too.
    Love that idea.

    On the other hand, he was a law enforcement officer. There are probably 150-200 law enforcement officers killed every year in this country, or a rate of about 1 every two days.

    Is the Arizona border land as safe as a park in downtown Des Moines? Of course not. But I'm not ready to declare it a war zone either.
    If parts of downtown Des Moines were under the effective control of drug cartels, it'd be a different story, which is the case for parts of southern Arizona near the border. The cartels have lookouts stationed and know who moves where much better than our law enforcement officials do. There are sizable chunks of southern Arizona that are in effect no-man's land. It's an eery thing when you go to southern Arizona, as I do on occasion, and there's areas they tell you to be sure to get out of there well before the sun goes down.

    OK, it's not nuance. It's obvious. But at least we can agree on something.

    This. Of course the nuance went over Bob's head (yes Bob, we're aware mankind cannot control hurricanes).

    And I don't recall anyone referring to the Mexican border as safe or even "safe".

    Come to think of it, nevermind. That might violate some stipulations in the Geneva convention.
    Do we have any idea what long term exposure to this might do to people, especially young children and their development?

    The areas in question in southern Arizona have been unsafe and known drug smuggling areas for a long while. This event is entirely predictable. It was a question of when, not if, something like this would happen again. And reports are that it'll be hard to find those who did it. Says something that our border agents can be ambushed, killed, and wounded, but we aren't on top of things enough to even have a good shot to apprehend the culprits.
    And when we have a good shot to apprehend the culprits, the border patrol agents are then the ones arrested for some asinine reason that makes no sense.

    No, you want to scar the beautiful and remote Arizona landscape with billboards and all the destruction of the environment such construction would entail. For shame.
