Don't worry I have a feeling a monumentally dangerous invasion force made up of thousands of brown M-13 psychos will be headed this way.  They will have the heads of white christians on pikes and we will need to sure up our southern wall so they can't get through.

The Game of Caravans is just on hiatus while the writers go through some GRR Martin stuff and replace white walkers with Mexicans.

Expect new episodes coming late next summer.

SUMMER IS COMING!!!

Everywhere we wage war, we create a refugee crisis.

Problem: reporting on the suffering of people from central Ameroca won't do anything to Judas-Americans. Except maybe arouse them.

They completely glossed over the part where they were bad hombres.

FAKE NEWS!

Dude, everywhere ANYONE wages war, a refugee crisis is created. It's not somehow unique to the evil running dog American imperialists.

American policy, personal and governmental, is to stick one's head up one's ass.

No shiat.

You mean our president, who claims to be a business genius (despite a number of bankruptcies and 3,500 contractor nonpayments) might not be truthful?
Madness.

It would be nice to work with Central America to shift some of the work China does for us (US consumers) there. It would help solve a few problems.

Not if everyone goes all-in on the war. Then you've got 100% fighters, 0% refugees. Refugees are just the pussies that aren't willing to commit to a side.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: It would be nice to work with Central America to shift some of the work China does for us (US consumers) there. It would help solve a few problems.


It would create more than it solved.

We ALREADY pollute the everliving bejeesus out of SA with the automotive manufacturing that was moved there after it became apparent that Chinese forging, casting, and assembly wasn't fit for toys, let alone meeting ISO/TS 16949 standards.

Moving electronics assembly and manufacturing there would just kill off the rest of the assets that they have. No more chocolate or coffee, can't grow there. Can't eat the fruit, laden with heavy metals. Not that that would stop the local robber barons from shoving down the locals' throats and charging them for it.

It's like really simple headline madlibs.

U.S. denial/action of/in city-place-nation crisis will backfire.

Chose something, anything, happening on the globe right now; there is some way the U.S. is sticking it's dick into it and giving that situation U.S. Derpes Simplex.

It's not even really worth denying anymore, yeah our government sucks at pretty much every level now and it probably is our fault some where along the line.

So... what's your plan for Central American prosperity?

I'm sure the plan is winging it , just like the plan for American prosperity just with a south added.

Stop the drug war and focus on treating addiction as a medical issue.
Legalize and regulate prostitution.
While weakening the cartels' revenue with the previous two steps, work with Central American governments to take down the cartels and rebuild what they destroyed.

Not cartel related:
Fine the shiat out of corporations whose supply chain is overly exploitative and/or involved in corrupting governments. You wanna do business in the United States? Better make sure all your 'contractors' are on the level.
And make it easier to legally immigrate for those who can't afford to wait for any of those efforts to really kick in.

In short, stop breaking shiat (or letting our corporations break shiat) and make some effort to fix what we already broke. That's a start, at least.

Part of it is going to have to be on their end.

For our part? Abolish the War on Drugs, open the borders, institute a 10% tax on all sub-$1,000,000 transactions heading to CA or SA, use the proceeds to offer free education to all CA/SA emigrants, and the problem will do a TON of fixing itself.

I think what he meant was that it now appears to be a priority, rather than collateral damage.

Let them die far away from here, and thus deplete their surplus population.

So your plan for fixing Central America is to have its population move to the US? Immigration to the US has been having awful effects on the CA countries the last few years.

Just brilliant.
