All this talk of an invasion of the United States, I got to wondering how that would work. Of course, I realize that Trump’s posturing about the Central American refugees – the “caravan” – is political nonsense intended to rile up the rubes. In no sense is this an invasion.
But what if there were an invasion. What if Mexico finally got tired of being called ugly names by the American president and decided to do something about it? What if they decided that they were going to address the problem of American drug money going to Mexico’s cities and funding the drug cartels that are making so many places unlivable? In other words, what if the tanks started rolling into Texas and the Southwest? Suppose that we didn’t see the military build up along the border. Or, suppose we did.
Is the US military positioned such that it could repel a traditional land invasion? I’m imagining something akin to Barbarossa or the Germans crossing the Ardennes. I wall just isn’t going to do it. Is the only plan that if Mexico occupies San Diego, we nuke Monterrey? (I don’t know why Monterrey. Why not?)
