There’s certainly a lot going on in this editorial cartoon published by the New York Times, all of it a bit baffling:

That certainly does make a statement, but not perhaps what the cartoonist had in mind:
NYT thinks our troops want to fight in the Middle East instead of protecting America's border. #WrongAgainJournocrats

I "enrolled" to serve and protect my nation, not for some forsaken little country on the far side of the planet.
Setting troops in a defensive line along the border seems to meet that criteria to a T.

The cartoonist doesn’t appear to agree.
Average grunt voice, according to NYT: "I signed up to spread democracy, not protect my country's border!" https://t.co/JLyQpDHPBE

Protecting our border should not be his priority?

Narrator voice: We weren’t fighting any wars in the Middle East.
Other Narrator: No one had enlisted to fight in the Middke East.
Third Narrator: They had enlisted not enrolled.
Enlisted Narrator: I’d rather be in Texas than anywhere in the Middke East. https://t.co/rN2UtOmXk7

Protecting the country. It's kinda his first responsibility.

Ahh the New York Times, with a finger firmly on the pulse of…the American military.

The US Army's mission is to invade foreign countries ^

The link to the article on NYT's website has it corrected to "enlisted",

That’s certainly not the only thing that should have been changed.
