Bringing our troops home

This is in regards to the president’s decision to bring some of our soldiers home, which a lot of non-military people are against. (Bless them!) As they know not for what they say. Could our president have something in mind that you do not know? Why do we need “eyes on the ground” when we have many (more to come) satellites that can even show what brand of cigarettes the foes are smoking? Do we need troops encountering harsh conditions to engage the enemies with ground fire when we have things called “drones” that can do a far better job?

Also, a wall would cost $5 billion. What is the Democrats’ alternative? Many more people and vehicles, electronic surveillances - what? If (when) the wall is built, that’s it, but in the alternative, the extra cost will continue and to accelerate in cost forever.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) doesn’t give a damn about the country or the occupants of it, only his vanity in himself. Do he and his party members live in walled areas or in secured areas, unlike and paid for by most citizens?
