S and F
This guys experience is not just confined to the US but UK too.
I was a 17 year old in the first gulf war, then 3 and a half years on special ops in northern ireland with a stint in the balkans intermingled for
The balkans was the worst. We had no mandate or rules of engagement, we were there to observe for the UN and be close protection for the UN
We would visit people and find them crucified to thier front doors the next day, or burnt to a crisp. We also had to watch as old women crossing the
road had their heads blown off by snipers. We had to watch as cattle trucks full of dead "meat" were placed in huge trenches, then had to ask
"permission" to wade through that "meat" to treat people who were still alive but thrown in with the dead! Had to listen to the demonic laughter
of the serbian commanders who would watch as we were chest deep in human blood, excrement, bone and flesh to get those screaming people out of the pit
who those bastards had placed with the dead.
A lot of my guys tried to commit suicide when they got home. The rest forgotten by the goverment who sent them.
Plus a lot of SF guys who i served with, and are still in theatre in afganistan, suffer from ptsd. These guys are SAS! The most elite regiment in the
world. Lots of them have also tried to kill themselves, some have suceeded. Yet to admit it is to ruin your career so they go untreated and things get
I am a reserve with the UK land forces, and was asked if i wanted to deploy with aregular unit as a section commander to afganistan, i said no.
The duty of a goverment is to look after those who will risk their lives to enforce their wars but they do not! They leave you for dead!
I say to young people who want to enlist to not do it. Our goverment isnt worth fighting for, dying for. And the war is not just, it is was started on
Let them fight their own goddam war, send their own sons to the slaughter!
