This makes total sense.
The United States will help build new facilities for border guards in Tajikistan along the Central Asian country's frontier with Afghanistan and Uzbekistan to better respond to security threats, the U.S embassy in Dushanbe said on Wednesday.
The new facility, which will be built in Tajikistan's southwestern tip, will replace an outdated detachment and allow border guards to "deploy forces more quickly to border areas in response to threats," the embassy said.
Tajikistan, which has pledged to accept 100,000 Afghan refugees escaping the Taliban, hosts a Russian military base and is a member of a Moscow-led post-Soviet security bloc.
Isn't it great? While our border is experiencing a historic surge of illegal immigrants (but I've been told its racist to try to keep them out), we're busy building border facilities in a Soviet-bloc nation to protect them from the terrorists that just got a nation and $85 billion in military goodies from us.
You can't make it up.
We live in a strange, strange world.
I hope the citizens of Tajikistan enjoy their new fortified border!
