We MUST control the Borders

I have been excoriating the Bush administration for overly lax border control.
This story is the reason why.

The FBI managed to stop this plan to import deadly weapons into the US. What about the other plots that are out there? It's often been quoted that "the terrorists only have to succeed once, or we can only fail once" for an incident on the scale of 9/11 to occur again.

I give the FBI kudos for stopping them....THIS TIME. With borders that are leaking like a sieve, it's a testament to their ability that we haven't had another major incident as of this time.

We the people need to do our part and let the Administration know that we will no longer tolerate their seemingly insane border policies. The politicians are afraid of the PC screamers, we need to let them know that we don't agree with the screamers and we demand that our borders be made secure to the best of our ablity with a free society.

There will be an incident, sooner rather than later, it's just the law of averages that the terrorists will succeed, and with the strictures inhereant in a free society, our borders will never be totally leak proof without losing that freedom we hold dear, but that doesn't mean that we throw up our hands and just say Que sera sera.

There are measures that can be taken that will heighten our security considerably without infringing on our freedom, all it takes is the political will to employ them.

We can no longer equate stopping open intrusion of our borders with racism as the PC screamers would have it. It's not, it's self defense.
