"That’s Remarkable."

Lets keep it that way.


2015: The Washington Post’s Dan Lamothe noted a pretty incredible milestone last week: Last Wednesday marked 75 days without a U.S. military combat death, the longest period since before 9/11. It hadn’t gone over 50 days since before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. The last U.S. fatalities, Spc. Wyatt Martin and Sgt. 1st Class Ramon Morris, were killed by an improvised explosive device in Parwan province, Afghanistan, on Dec. 12.

2009: The image of an American president at a repatriation ceremony has not been witnessed in years – former President George W Bush met grieving military families, but never went to Dover Air Force base in Delaware.
Indeed, the media had been banned from even showing images of returning coffins for 18-years until Mr Obama lifted the blackout earlier this year.


May they all RIP.

22 sucides don't count as military?

To some of us they do. And to all of us they should.

How long since the last innocent victim of a drone strike died?
How long since the village was destroyed thanks to airstrikes or a battle?

Yep. We're still fighting, still killing, but just in a way that puts more distance between us and the face of humanity.

Why remote warfare is a hideous idea as well.

They count as military deaths not COMBAT deaths.

That is great. I wonder if its been 80 days free of veteran suicide. Walking wounded trudge on back, back at home where the nighmares just won't stop, the anxiety, the faces with twisted bodies and the bodies with twisted faces stare back from a hellish memory. Somehow I don't think we made 80 days, but I hope I'm wrong.

don't worry folks there will be plenty of more dead US personnel if.......you go into Ukraine...or Syria....or help Israel fight Iran.....you are back in Iraq.....my dumb country Australia has agreed to bend over in the shower for America to send more aussies back into that sh#$ hole...

both of our solf hand pollies along with England don't care about military or civilian deaths....it's been happening for the last 100yrs.....and it aint going to stop tomorrow....

this is what the western nations excel at....pure and utter waste at everybodies expense.....

but the pollies are safe and well looked after......I think that i'm going to vomit.
