That Whole Deal About Troops Being Disarmed At The Border

Categories: Military, News

Let’s get the unpopular part of this out of the way. On some level, we can understand how you’d give up your weapon to de-escalate a situation. We hate saying it, f*** do we hate saying it, but we get it. Now, that’s not to say that we’d do the exact same thing because we wouldn’t. There are a few questions that’d we’d like answered that all kind of build on each other. We’ll start from the bottom and work our way up with these questions.

The news report stated that the soldiers had their M9 Berettas taken from them. Why is that the only weapon they had? It may not have been, but it was the only weapon mentioned by name. Where were their rifles?

Next question, why were there only two of them miles away from backup armed with only pistols? If your duty is to protect the border, then how the hell are you going to protect the border with two dudes and only pistols? We’re not border patrol agents or whatnot and we don’t have a whole assload of experience in keeping a border secure, but common sense would lend some aid here and say a few things. Have better weapons. Have more than two dudes.

Next question. WHO IN THE F*** GIVES UP THEIR WEAPON TO A FOREIGN MILITARY? Again, we understand like…you wanted to de-escalate a situation, but you know…don’t do that. Ever. Again…since we’re sure some peacenik hippy is going to read this and get all defensive of the dudes…we get it, they wanted to de-escalate the situation. WE KNOW.

But also, don’t put dudes in a position where they have to give up their weapon to deescalate. A solid rule of thumb is to always negotiate from a position of strength…you know like, maybe having a few extra dudes around…with bigger guns than a dopey 9mm.

Don’t get us wrong, we like the 9mm, it’s just you know…a pistol going up against battle rifles/service rifles of another nation…that usually ends up poorly.

Sure as shit we hope we learned a lesson here, f***, we hope we learned several lessons here, lessons like;

Have more dudes
Have better firepower
Don’t be a little bitch
Don’t give up your weapon to ANYONE…EVER…not even the armorer (not like he’ll take it anyways, it’s probably dirty)

Know what we're sayin fam?

  1. Worked there. Never went anywhere, even to take a leak on some thirsty cactus, without a piece onboard. The bad guys, cartel mules who are carrying the high value powder drugs, are AK armed.

    So, do we want more Brian Terry murders? Because that BP agent went up against some of Obama’s Atty Gen Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious guns in the hands of a cartel RIP crew, AK’s to be exact, with a goddamned bean bag shotgun, in 2010. Yeah, check the story out.

    You send troops, you arm them. It’s what they do. Damned bitches in Congress!!

  2. I worked the border back in ‘08 while in the National Guard. We had a flight crew of 3 and were allowed to take one M9 pistol with one magazine. At that time the Soldiers on the border were allowed something like one M4 per squad or something like that. It sounds like this is still how it works. Also, on a typical day along the border there will be only one BP agent in a truck covering several miles. This is why there is a border crisis.

    1. Hell those are even too scary- someone might get hurt with them… they would be more likely to give out cupcakes to sweeten everyone up. You know how food can work to bring every one together. 😉

  3. Should have them in 4 man squads with 3 M4’s one with 203, and a SAW. Try that shit again Mexicu#t border patrol.
