Who's watching the northern border? Hardly anyone

Americans face a high risk of terrorist activity along the U.S.-Canadian border, where less than 1 percent of the 4,000-mile stretch is adequately protected, according to a government report released Tuesday. Full Story

Both borders are very vunerable, but at least we don't have a corrupt gang-run government on the other side of the northern border.

Our nation's efforts in regard to immigration "enforcement" and border "protection" actually are nothing more than choreographed charades the government goes through so as to placate the general public.

More specifically, the big boys in the Democratic Party want the votes that an increasing population and undocumented aliens voting illegally give it, the big boys in both the Democratic and Republican parties want to keep happy the big businessmen who make large election campaign contributions and who want access to low cost undocumented alien slave labor, and all sorts of big boys want plenty of undocumented aliens around who will work as nannies, babysitters, and gardeners, etc, etc, etc.

And the government itself loves, and in fact is also totally addicted to, the many billions of dollars that undocumented aliens each year pay into social security but are not likely to collect more than a tiny portion of.

In other words, far too many of the big and powerful boys, and in one way or another, have their fingers in the sections of the economic and social pies that are based on having huge numbers of undocumented aliens continuing to be present in the USA, so therefore in actuality nothing serious will be done to get the number of undocumented aliens drasticaly reduced.

The only ones who are probably watching the northern border is a few guys from Al Queda, which in turn allows more of the murdering bastards into this Country.
They are IMHO waiting for the right time and signal to hit us when our guard is way down, that is the only way to pull off surprise attacks, while our Government sleeps, and we ask...

9/11 happened how many years ago? And they are just now realizing that the Canadian border is, and has been, wide open all this time? Hello????

The 7th Mukluk Militia and their mushers are stationed in Ely and ready to activate at a moments notice.

They have Lilly the bear and the tree-hugger-wolves that they can use if necessary.

The battle plans are quite impressive, calling for taconite to be hurled at the first sign of trouble.

you people are idiots... Remember that the terrorists did come Through Canada to blow up NY, not Mexico... then, Bush just happens to say, we need border control on the southern border! HUH??? What did that have to do with what happened in NY? NOTHING! But, everyone heard what the leader said and believed it and went with it...

You better be having a long hard look at what happens on Mohawk lands that straddle the U.S. Canada border.

We must invade and occupy Canada, both to secure our borders and protect our precious tar sands and the Northwest Passage. Vote Palin/Bachman in 2012.

Those Ragheaded terrorists already know where the most vulnerable points are located.

Maybe it's because the security of the US-Canadian border is less of an issue than Lieberman et al. want to make it. Looks like our northern border folks were stopping terrorist attacks well before most of America even imagined a terrorist attack could be possible (remember the thwarted Seattle Space Needle attack of 1999, which none of us heard about until after 9/11):

Southern border patrol is primarily about illegal aliens, not terrorists.
