Secure Border Initiative, Part 8
Another interesting Boeing requirement is for
a climb-proof fence. Some distance north of the vehicle barrier
there is to be – in some locations -- a climb-proof fence.
A climb-proof fence 15 feet high does not work. A climb-proof
fence 15 feet high with a 45 degree overhang really does
not work. A climb-proof fence 25 feet high works fine. What are
The Dark Reality of SBI is that what Boeing is creating is a fully
automated traffic monitoring system like the one used by state
highway organizations to count cars on the freeway -- with
the "511" option. They are not building
something to stop the traffic but only count the people going
past. Building real barrier infrastructure is building something
permanent. A wall is permanent and it works. Boeing is building
a billion dollar set of traffic lights.
are funding the concept of a secure border, but
only building something that's easy to tear down and even easier
The Lemming's Reality
Let's say you have ten million lemmings. All
the lemmings plan to stampede into your yard. You can install
TV cameras and lemming sensors and lemming counters. The problem
is that you are not stopping the lemmings. You are creating a
Harvard University Study of lemming behavior.
To stop the lemmings from getting into your yard
you need to stop them from getting into your yard.
If you installed barriers like those to be installed
along our border then you would have to maintain about one Lemming
Stopping Person every half mile seven days a week and 24 hours
a day. This works out to about $700,000 per half mile per year
for Lemming Stopping People alone.
In our case, we will need about 30,000 new agents
to make this work. This will never happen because it is mean spirited
to hire people to protect our border and even if we tried it would
take ten years to get them all trained and fielded.
What is needed is a barrier that does not need
agents every half mile 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Does such a barrier exist?
Does Boeing have it?
Illegal aliens are coming into the United States
of America and killing more civilians each year
than we have lost solders after five years of war in Afghanistan
and Iraq combined. Our government is willing spend one
trillion dollars on a project 12,000 miles from home when the
real live threat to our families and our children is half an inch
south of the U.S. border. Illegal aliens kill more people in the
USA every month than would die in a 747 plane crash every single
month and nothing is done.
