War is not a proper substitute for lack of resolve. War takes even more resolve. And it must
be viewed as worth the price. It is impossible to see how America could build a national consensus to support this mission. If you are not prepared to go to the mom of a dead 82nd Airborne trooper and tell her that Jimmy died doing the job Mexicans refused to do themselves and because we won’t build a wall, maybe don’t suggest Mexican War 2.0. Say no to Black Hawk Down south of the border.
