5 British soldiers were killed the other day by an Afghani policeman.
That thread only went to three pages. Of the contributors, only two were identifiably American ; one an Australian.
It's eye opening to see how ATS reacts when tragedy comes. The impression is given by our activity that American deaths are somehow more worthy of comment than those of others. And that's a terrible shame.
My own thoughts are with the families of those killed & wounded in this terrible incident.

this is not good for the rest of the soldiers currently on other U.S. bases. they would consider bases in this country to be stress free as far as getting attacked and shot...now...they probably won't be able to let their guard down even here. this is going to have detrimental effects for the near future...and maybe who ever planned this, knew that. after all that is the meaning of terror. my heart goes out to our soldiers.
Definitely could be a deterrent to those considering enlisting. I hope not, as this country does not need a draft

so not everyone walks around with guns
but how about some security forces at the very least????
foreign bases have better security than domestic ones
that's what people don't get
all the stimulus money went to companies and companies used that money overseas, I know this firsthand
taxpayer money, all of it goes to israel or to foreign nations to prop up govts.
defense, all that money goes overseas and we are all sitting ducks back home
Nothing is domestic... NOTHING!!!
Anyhow, have a few national guardsmen at the very least
national guardsmen, keyword = NATIONAL.. but noooooooo
they are also being deployed overseas creating more enemies while we are sitting ducks at home being bankrupted
It's time for a change and Obama ain't briginging it!

The Story and thread broke at 12:51 AM . Not exactly a great time for a new thread to be posted. Especially here in the states.
