I’ve written about the plight of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi for weeks now. It’s a sad story. It’s made even sadder by President Obama’s terrible trade for what appears to be a deserter and traitor, while he allows a true hero to languish behind bars in Mexico.
Tahmoorsessi is being falsely imprisoned by our “friend” and neighbor Mexico.
He’s been mistreated, beaten and some would say tortured.
I’ve already suggested what should be done to free this Marine hero - warn the President of Mexico that every option is on the table until we get our Marine hero back.
But assuming that Obama will never threaten the use of force (100,000 U.S. Marines at Camp Pendleton), I have another solution for him. A peaceful solution. A simple solution.
The president needs to announce that starting tomorrow our border with Mexico is closed. No one is going to or from Mexico. All business with Mexico is cancelled until our Marine hero is returned.
From this moment on all Americans should be asked to cancel their vacations to Mexico. Good luck to Cabo, Acapulco and Cancun. Everyone can switch to Hawaii.
Let’s make a wager on how quick Tahmooressi is returned. I’ll guess 24 hours or less. Anyone want to wager on the “over?”
Unfortunately, none of my solutions stand a chance of ever happening. Our esteemed commander in chief clearly lacks the common sense or intestinal fortitude to save one of his soldiers who willingly (and honorably) fought for this country. He’s too busy freeing Jihadist mass murderers in order to save deserters who hate America.
I realize that Tahmoorsessi’s father doesn’t speak Arabic.
I realize Tahmooressi hasn’t forgotten English.
