*a guest piece by Mr. Fred Wheeler of Patriots' Table
The MSM says the Pentagon "refused" Trump's request for troops to protect our southern border.Using American troops for this duty is not unprecedented. Presidents Taft, Eisenhower, both Bushes -- even Obama have done the same. President Wilson not only sent troops to the border. He had American troops chase Pancho Villa through Mexico for months.
After my stint at the Officer Basic Course at Fort Sill, I was stationed with Division Artillery of the Second Armored Division at Fort Hood, Texas. Upon my arrival in January, 1969 I learned my unit had just returned from Chicago where they had served during the riots. We were assigned an area of the country called our "Garden Plot" for which we trained many hours.
Of course, the nation went a little crazy during the sixties. American troops were used to preserve domestic tranquility often. There is no higher use for our troops than to protect our borders from foreign invaders.
If there are any deep staters at the Pentagon who think this is a poor use for our troops, they need to be rooted out. Otherwise, this is just another false story by the fake media.
