Who leaked the intel of their position or possible positions is a question that needs to be answered ASAP.


I agree but we need to get out of there

Spin it however the politicians can stomach but its time to leave


What is the U.S.'s mission there?


EXACTLY what is our mission? It was supposed to be about Bin laden and taking out the Taliban to make us safe.

One Trillion and countless lives later:

Taliban? We are negotiating with them
Democracy? LOL we put one strongman in place and thats about it
Safer? HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Bin laden? we got him but our allies the aka the ISI kept him hidden for years

Done, it was a loss. Time to move on

My one dangerous moment in this Middle East mess was when a tri-wall containing some medical equipment was being processed by 3 LN's on the flight line in Kabul to be sent directly to my area in the hospital.
(LN is Local National for those unfamiliar)

They had set an IED.

They screwed up the timer.

And blowed themselves all up.

I'm out some serious equipment I was using to try to save to soldiers lives, and 3 mother-f###ing assholes just killed themselves trying to kill me and my men.

Never trusted another LN after that, Afghan army, the same. Heard too many horror stories that never made the news.

My heart goes out to the brave souls who have lost their lives today and as for the rest?

I hope they rot in hell.


I can't even imagine.

I can thank you and every other person who's 'served' for your service - but I just can't imagine what it would be like to serve in combat.

My heart goes out to the families who're waiting for the report of their loved ones...

I was a route clearance commander in this area. We rolled out of FOB Fenty. Dangerous area. I rarely saw SF. Every now and then one would ride along with us but I never saw them or knew their missions. If I had to guess they likely went to raid an area but it was set up as an ambush. The intel really sucked when I was there. I honestly just ignored most of it and used common sense. Only thing I paid attention to was the type of attacks in the area.

I remember one time the Taliban raided a smaller FOB in the area. They did some damage but the next day they paid for it. We leveled everything in that area within a 2 mi radius. And when I say everything I mean everything. All their dirt homes, shops...everything. Probably the only time I saw the rules of engagement thrown out the window. If we did more of that this would have ended a long time ago. Only thing they respect is uncommon lethal force. After that bombing things got quiet around there for a while.

From your post to the President's ears.

Either flatten them and be done with it - or - get out completely and be done with it.

All this half-assed shat's just getting people killed for nothing (obviously).

Thank you for your service.

Why are we in Afghanistan. FYI dozens of farmers in Afghanistan were killed by drone strikes. It sucks that 2 Americans died recently.

But we are killing innocents all the time in the name on terror. Can anyone explain why we are in Afghanistan?

The president talks a big game but he has only increased civilian deaths and still continued stays in Afghanistan and Iraq!

Yea and it's sad the Trump admin isn't doing much to change the status quo.

We spend so much time arguing left vs right politics that we forget Bush , Obama, and Trump have all been willing participants in the endless war on Terror.

Will we ever get a a potus that has the balls to pull out?

How about - get out - then find out who leaked.

And when you do find out? Hang 'em high.

If you can get ahold of them physically. If not, then drone them from on high.

He is trying, and if you can't admit that, get some help for your TDS.

Pulling out of the ME attacks the very heart of the deep state, and they are working overtime to make sure that doesn't happen.

Trump has been very reserved when it comes to what is happening over there, but I do think he just needs to order a full pull-out, and fire every single deep state military officer who tries to argue against it immediately, and replace them with someone who agrees with the non-intervention principle.

We have one now. We just need to start supporting hi, and end the TDS once and for all.

Explain how "trying" is increasing drone strikes and removing the annual drone strike public report?

Yoiur only excuse is saying trump isn't the deep state and he is trying. How is trump declaring an indefinite stay in iraq trying?

You trump supporters are delluded. And no im not a democrat and i didn't agree with Obama 's foreign policy.

Trump isn't trying anything to go against the deep state in the ME. He nearly started a war with Iran just recently...i watched fox recently and they were talking about the "deep state". The MSM is hikacking conspiracy and turning it around to fool you people. They convinced you that any deep state activity and swamp behavior is just Democrats...

Keep saying i got TDS. Try and refute my points about Trump's increase in drone strike civilian deaths and canceling the annual drone report.

Can you defend that?

Because i haven't seen any trump supporter defend it. You guys just buy the BS because democrats are on the political offensive.

Really? You don't remember him announcing us pulling out of Syria, and the huge pushback from the likes of Bolton and the other war-mongers? He has made other comments with tregard to Afghanistan, etc.


He nearly started a war with Iran just recently.

False. He killed a known designated terrorist, when the opportunity presented itself.

Eh? Who ever said the deep state meant demwits? Not me. The Deep State is loaded with Socialists, Communists, and yeah, even RINOs.

Ok - you have TDS, bigly.

If he ceased the reports, how do you know how they increased?

Regardless, I much prefer drone strikes to use of boots on the ground.

I haven't seen proof of anything that requires defending. Just TDS yammering.

Past reports . I just see trump worship yammering. You prefer drone strikes compared to boots on the ground? Ahh well you sure bought the mainstream BS there... Explain why we need to be conducting all these military activities in the ME. Boits on ground or not..

I haven't heard a good explanation on how killing hundreds of women and children in the nane of "terror" is a good thing for the future of America

I feel like ATS went full pro-war just because trump is in office..

If being anti-war from bush, to Obama, to trump means i have TDS then so be it. At least im not a partisan sheep like you.

Yes.

You would prefer boots on the ground?

How so?

We don't. I have repeatedly said Trump should just pull the trigger, order a full pull-out of all troops everywhere in the ME - including SA and Israel - and fire any military officer who resists said new policy.


I haven't heard a good explanation on how killing hundreds of women and children in the nane of "terror" is a good thing for the future of America

I haven't seen any proof or even evidence that Trump has done anything like that.

Contrarily, I specifically recall a case where he canceled a drone strike because of the possibility that there would be some civilian casualties.


I feel like ATS went full pro-war just because trump is in office.

You are confusing your TDS with the reality that Trump ran on, and his supporters fully support, pulling out of and ending these endless foreign wars/entanglements.


If being anti-war from bush, to Obama, to trump means i have TDS then so be it.

I, and every Trump supporter I know, are 'anti-war from Bush to Obama', so, that isn't what is causing your TDS.
