While many Americans who were too busy to pay attention are floored by our nation’s apparent lack of border security and are somehow still under the impression this is a “sudden” massive influx of illegal immigrants that is not the result of years of NAFTA, CAFTA and every president’s foreign policy failures going back to at least Reagan — including the seemingly persistent, systematic destruction of our immigration laws by the Obama Administration (regime?) — our government is also busy embroiled in endless wars they can’t win halfway around the world.

Roughly 2,600 captains and other officers have or will be laid off, with more expected, Fox News learned Friday.
The decision to send pink slips to soldiers overseas on active duty is dangerous and bad for morale, says retired Major Gen. Robert Scales.
“It puts the soldier, the soldier’s family and the men under his command at risk,” said Scales, a Fox News contributor. “Young officers look at each other and wonder who is next.” (source)
