They don't have the High Ground.

I can't tell if they have ammo for their rifles.

I don't see any field glasses for surveillance or scopes for long-range shooting, if needed.

Looks like they pack-up at night.

they aren't even making any attempts to conceal their position, and they have no real cover besides the Humvee if they get ambushed.

not to mention a bright blue shade structure and outhouse.

Looks like more photo ops. Weren't there suppose to be 6,000 NG on the Border. I bet there are still less than 500.

The most I see is 3 NG.

In the early weeks of this deployment, the BS from Washington was that the NG would not be armed and patrolling, but would be doing some clerical work and providing taxi service for BP agents.

If the deal is to be observing and not arresting illegals, I'd be on high ground and sure wouldn't be using that blue beacon. That camo-tent dealie isn't what I'd be using as a sun shelter, either.

If patrolling is to be done, the camp guard is gonna be a lonesome fella. If no camp guard, there wouldn't be anything there upon return, most likely. Or, at most, empty coolers. :)

My basic reaction is, "Hmph. City folks out in the boonies." I've been watching that sort of deal, now, for over thirty years in my own little chunk of desert...

#1. The position is a marked one. i.e. Don't come around here.

#2 There is a show of armed force.

#3 ALL of the NG have class III torso armor.

I was hoping the rest of you would pick up on it, and that being I don't see any Mags or Ammo!

I don't see any illegals in the area, so I consider it MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!:uhoh:

They have mag pouches on their body armor. No web gear that I see. Also, they have no canteens :D Need to stay hydrated! Oh yeah... the NG drinks that high quality bottled water.

What is that, some kind of OP or something? Like 3 people, a crumby tent and a HMMWV? No antenna for comm on the hummer nor do I see anyone packing any kind of comm gear or under the tent. No lights set up so it's a temporary position and there is no way they got enough gear out there to stay long... probably some kind of photo op rather than a real OP.

The minutemen would do a better job than those NG turds.

Why would they need to do any long-range shooting?

That is a joke...

Everything about it screams security theater... This is something to get voters to vote so that folks can loot more government coofers. Has nothing to do with actually doing anything constructive.
