(National Sentinel)Â Misplaced Priorities: The U.S. military has been deployed fighting low-intensity ‘brushfire’ wars for so long the mainstream media has forgotten why our military exists in the first place.
Hint: It’s not to protect and defend other nations before it protects and defendsÂ ours first and foremost.
Sure, we have mutual defense agreements with other countries. Yes, there that renowned military alliance known at NATO that we essentially prop up.
But make no mistake about it: The U.S. military existsÂ firstÂ to protect and defend the borders of the United States.
So why is the MSM complaining about how much it will cost to send thousands of soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico boundary to assist civilian authorities in protecting the integrity of our borders?
AsÂ The Blaze notes, several outlets reported Saturday that it could cost as much as $200 million through the end of the year to deploy anywhere from 7,000 to 15,000 troops, depending on POTUS Donald Trump’s orders.
Okay. So, what’s the big deal? The current defense budget is somewhere in the neighborhood of $716 billion; we spend aroundÂ $45 billion annually in Afghanistan alone.
Why we continue to do that is another question — and a legitimate one after being in that failed country for 17 years.
But even so, that does not negate the fact that the American military’s primary duty is to protect and defend the United States. And the president has deemed the approaching migrant caravans, which include MS-13 members, armed criminals, and — according to this report — maybe even terrorist elements from the Middle East.
The bottom line is this: To watch the disgustingly dishonest MSM complain about the U.S. military performing its primary duty is the epitome of tone-deafness.
You’d think a simple ‘thank you’ would be in order instead.
