The Military Option—Inevitable End Of This Immigration Anarchy?

Deportation Now (Or Counter-Insurgency Later?

As the U.S. Senate
grapples with the question of how much amnesty to
give the over


20 million
illegal aliens
already in the country—not to mention offering

"guest worker"

status to potentially millions more of the
uninvited—Americans outside the Beltway are
contemplating something quite different.

As a quiet reaction to
the recent

pro-illegal alien marches
fueled by Mexican
revanchism on American soil, law-abiding Americans
seem to be coming to the conclusion that what is
at stake is nothing less than the

survival of the nation
itself.

And the ultimate
answer to the problems of illegal immigration and border
anarchy

might just be military.

For example, nationally-syndicated
columnist

Georgie Anne Geyer
asked some chilling questions
at the conclusion of her column on April 3:


"What will be the results of this unprecedented


Mexican program
of brazenly reaching into
another country and telling it what to do? Will Mexicans
simply retake the southern U.S.? Or will we perhaps come
too late to the realization that in our foolishness, we
have helped start the breakup of America?"

Ms. Geyer`s

accomplished career
as a foreign correspondent,
author and commentator – having witnessed revolutions
come and go all over the world—mean her comments cannot
be taken lightly. The alarm bells sounded by
pioneering outfits like Glenn Spencer`s

American Patrol Report
have now gone mainstream!

As yet another
chilling sign of the times,

last week
I
mentioned the
grave implications of the recent "
Border
Wars
"
article by Jeff Randall in the April
2006 issue of

S.W.A.T. Magazine
.
This chronicles the
increasing intensity of violence experienced by
Americans living all along the Mexican border. Randall
writes:


"`No matter what the
politicians and left-wingers tell you, what`s happening
on the Mexican border is not as simple as illegal aliens
crossing to find work and better their lives.`  Even
though the violence is ratcheting up, most politicians
in Washington don`t care that law-abiding American
property owners are being robbed,

raped
and shot on their own land."

While I`ve been making
the case for

summary removal
of illegal aliens and criminal alien
residents (instead of the current

litigation-based
system for the deportation of every
single illegal alien in the country), this issue is
small potatoes compared to the threat of military-style
resistance lurking along and within our own borders.

The March 30 column by William Lind, "
On
War #157: Through the Postern Gate
"
published on


Soldiers for the Truth
, makes the case that "[o]n
our southern border, the mestizo invasion is taking on
more overtly military overtones."

Lind writes:

"Why
are the drug and immigration smugglers on our southern
border escalating the conflict? Because when they probe,
they find weakness. Here we see another carry-over from
the Third to the

Fourth Generation

[warfare], in the form of `soft spot tactics.`
Our border defenses are weak at the

physical level
, and at the mental and moral levels
as well. Those weaknesses are intended by the Washington
Establishment and its unholy alliance of

cultural Marxists
and big business/cheap labor
`conservatives.`"

It was a VDARE.com reader who alerted me by email to
Lind`s column. The reader also noted that


"in his book,

The Counter-Insurgency Manual,

military affairs expert Leroy Thompson has a list of
conditions which make political and guerrilla
insurgencies possible and indeed likely. Thompson
identifies the primary causes of an insurgency. Consider
whether you think any of these are not yet in motion
within this country:

  • Class,

    ethnic
    , religious or other rifts within the
    population.

  • An

    underclass
    that aspires to improved living
    conditions or has been led to expect a marked
    improvement in their situation.

  • A government

    out of touch
    with the aspirations of the
    population.

  • Poor communication
    between the government and the population.

  • Unwillingness of
    the government to tolerate opposition parties.

  • A

    middle class
    struggling for political influence,
    but opposed by the right and left.

  • Lack of natural
    resources. (i.e. petroleum)

  • Ineffective
    military and police forces that fail in their duty
    to protect
    the population.

  • Poor
    intelligence-(collection).

  • Lack of
    identification by the populace with the government`s
    goals.

  • Sense of injustice
    among a substantial portion of the population.

  • Lack of faith in
    the government.

  • Corrupt and/or
    unmotivated civil servants.

  • Sense of loss of a
    traditional way of life.

  • Anxiety about the
    national future.

The VDARE.com reader offers a "stand
and fight
"
plan of action, adding that


"
[t]he
bottom line is that we must now see the problem and its
solution in military terms and retake control of our
country accordingly. What configuration of forces will
accomplish this, I do not know. I just know that it must
be done
."

If the U.S. Senate prefers to dither over illegal alien
amnesty schemes than even consider the possibility of a

summary removal
program, will the military solution
to border anarchy be the only way to stave off the
breakup of the union?

The appalling fact is that reasonable people are now
asking themselves this question. As a reporter, I am in
exactly the same situation as British politician Enoch
Powell was in when he made his great immigration

speech
in 1968:


"I can
already hear the chorus of execration. How dare I say
such a horrible thing? How dare I stir up trouble and
inflame feelings by repeating such a conversation?


"The
answer is that I do not have the right not to do so.
Here is a decent, ordinary fellow Englishman, who in
broad daylight in my own town says to me, his Member of
Parliament, that

this country
will not be worth living in for his
children. I simply do not have the right to shrug my
shoulders and think about something else."

The thoughtful writings of Ms. Geyer, along with the
gritty reality showcased in

Soldiers for the Truth
and


S.W.A.T. Magazine
,
make the prospect of
instituting another massive illegal alien amnesty that
much more of a national disgrace . . . and potentially
our undoing as well.
