I don't mean it in a negative way towards the USA - not at all - and in the next couple a posts I say 'More power to them.' Meaning the USA.

I'm just sick or war in every corner.

DoD releases names of 3rd Special Forces Group soldiers killed in Niger




WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Friday released the names of the three soldiers killed this week in Niger while conducting a joint patrol with Nigerien forces.

Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright died Wednesday.

All three were assigned to the Army’s 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Black, 35, served as a Special Forces medical sergeant, also known as an 18D. The native of Puyallup, Washington, enlisted in the Army in October 2009, according to a statement from U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

Black earned the Ranger Tab and Special Forces Tab while in the Army. Johnson, 39, served as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Specialist, also known as a 74D. He enlisted in the Army October 2007. He was from Springboro, Ohio.

Wright, 29, was a native of Lyons, Georgia. He served as a Special Forces engineer sergeant, or an 18C. He enlisted in the Army July 2012. Wright earned the Special Forces Tab.

So sorry for all of them and their families. One is a local.

God Bless them for their service and sacrifice.

peace

A fourth soldier was reported missing after the ambush. Over 100 US Special Forces soldiers, Nigerian, and French Air Force units were involved in searching for him. Unfortunately, he was apparently also killed in the ambush. His remains were recovered in the vicinity of where the attack took place.

This radical Islamic terrorist and now seemingly blending into this sort if neo leftist Marxist movement, at least tactically has been WW3 It's just world wide unconventional warfare.

sounds like the USA is doing a good thing


Have you actually ever taken the time to review history and in particular what the U.S. does to other countries around the globe


Have you actually ever taken the time to review history and in particular what islam does to other countries around the globe:?


Erm, "islam" should be a capital "I"


They pray like Christians, all 1.5 billion of them, don't they? Not quite the same as instigating coups and entirely destroying countries through greed. Additionally, it's not easy to track figures on deaths caused through religion, but I think Christianity would be way out there on top
