The DMZ is a place that inspires ideas . . .
Even though the New York Times is currently hard at their “Hillary for Prezildent” tripe, some editorials are interesting, for example, how about the idea that Donald Trump could learn from the Korean DMZ as a means of protecting Americans from the flood of illegal immigrants that come north from Mexico:
Since Mr. Trump bills himself as a hard-headed businessman interested only in effective solutions, I have a border he should strongly consider as a model: the one between North and South Korea, better known as the Demilitarized Zone. . . The good news for Mr. Trump is that we have a jump-start on building our own DMZ on the 2,000-mile Mexican border. Nearly 700 miles of 18-foot-high pedestrian fencing or vehicle barriers have been built since Sept. 11, 2001, at a cost of $3 million per mile. . .
several sections of the border come equipped with razor wire, night-vision cameras and Afghanistan- and Iraq-perfected drones. Plus, we have more than 18,000 Customs and Border Protection officials on patrol there. This isn’t quite the same number that we have in Korea, but it’s double the number of just 10 years ago. In short, Mr. Trump, we are well on our way to a Korea-style border. You would just need to finish the job.
Just when you thought politics is boring, it gets worse.
