I too am a vet and I sent a friend in my stead to Beruit

in 1983

he was in the bottom of the embassy

it was supposed to be me.

I changed my orders to him because I did not want to extend

he just reupped and had 3 years to go.

I don't have much PTSD as much now..

You're just not properly appreciating their virtue signalling.

If only loyalty was like MREs. Long-lasting.


...and hard to evacuate?

I don't know, I feel like there's more potential for your simile there.

Well, you're not going to win US public opinion by throwing your needed and likely subsidized food at our troops who don't make decisions on where they're stationed.

At least do what that Iraqi journalist did and throw shoesnat the decision maker. It sent a message, and it was funny. Also, Jr is surprisingly attentive and agile. I would have never taken him as someone with situational awareness given the way he talked.

I was a REMF.

But even had my shop in Kabul targeted with an IED.

I don't have PTSD, but working in a hospital at Landstuhl, I've had to just hold onto brothers and sisters that did.

Hell, I was a messed up squirrel long before Uncle Sammy got a hold of me.

So who do you suppose paid for this little show? All they were able to get was a dozen or so people who were more than likely paid to be there and given a little extra cash to buy the potatoes. I don't believe for a minute someone would toss out perfectly good potatoes just to protest. This was orchestrated.

Never ending land war skirmishes in The Middle East
as a distraction to the Asian buildup on the Pacific
and the Russian buildup in the Arctic.

As well as the European financial Psyop in "The Atlantic Council"
[region] www.atlanticcouncil.org...

C'est la vie.

Good thing we got a neighborhood psychic to tell everyone how they feel then. Idk where'd we be without you nostradamus


On topic i'd be pissed if someone who was suppose to be my brother in arms left me hanging before the job was finished too. However, I will repeat the sentiment of another poster in saying that these troops DON'T make their own orders. The very people your throwing tomatoes at are most likely just as pissed as the kurds are that their commander in chief is forcing them to run away like cowards after making a promise to the kurds to do the opposite to stay and fight until the job was done. So I can see both sides of this. But your more than welcome to tell me otherwise since you seem to have the unique ability to read peoples minds......
