It has been reported that military special forces have tested the border wall prototypes. They had a very difficult time overcoming the obstacles.
A new report describes how the border wall prototypes have undergone extensive testing by military special forces. They had a very difficult time overcoming the obstacles even with the aid of jackhammers, torches and climbing equipment.
Recent assaults by tactical teams on prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed wall with Mexico indicate their imposing heights should stop border crossers, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the rigorous assessment told The Associated Press.
Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools and climbing devices, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not authorized for public release.
A Customs and Border Protection report on the tests identifies strengths and flaws of each design but does not pick an overall winner or rank them, though it does point to see-through steel barriers topped by concrete as the best overall design, the official said.
The report recommends combining elements of each, depending on the terrain. The official likened it to a Lego design, pulling pieces from different prototypes.
So based on this, it sounds as if they’ll be taking a combination of each prototype while mixing and matching the different elements depending upon the type of terrain they’re dealing with. This is a good approach.
It’s also worth noting that the towering 30-foot height of the prototypes was found to be a highly effective deterrent.
Ronald Vitiello, the agency’s acting deputy commissioner, said after visiting the prototypes in October that he was struck most by the 30-foot (9.1-meter) heights, which are significantly higher than existing barriers. Taller barriers are undoubtedly more effective, but whether the cost is justified will be up for debate.
The highly trained testers scaled 16 to 20 feet (4.9 to 6.1 meters) unassisted but needed help after that, said the official who described the assaults on the wall prototypes to the AP. Testers also expressed safety concerns about getting down from 30 feet.
Only once did a tester manage to land a hook on top of the wall without help, the official said. Tubes atop some models repelled climbing devices but wouldn’t work in more mountainous areas because the terrain is too jagged.
The report favors steel at ground level because agents can see what is happening on the other side and holes can more easily be patched, the official said. With concrete, large slabs have to be replaced for even small breaches, which is time-consuming and expensive. Topping the steel with smooth concrete surfaces helps prevent climbing.
It appears as if there has been a great deal of progress made on the specifics of the border wall. Now, we just need Congress to fund it. The estimated cost of the border wall is around $20 billion and that’s a drop in the bucket. If trillions can be spent on retarded ZOG wars over the past few decades, $20 billion can be spent on a border wall.
Border walls work. If they didn’t work, Israel would have never constructed an extensive wall system. They also would not be in the process of building an underground wall system around the Gaza Strip.
Say what you want about the kikes but the wall they built in Israel works. Even an invading army of flesh eating zombie niggers would have a hard time getting past this!
But more important to the physical effectiveness of the border wall is the symbolism surrounding it. The mere presence of the border wall would send a strong message to all the bean monkeys that they’re not wanted. There’s also the political value it represents considering that this was a core Trump campaign promise.
We want the wall built and we want it built now! Get it funded!
