I keep coming across your posts in these kinds of threads and you write as if you have served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Have you? If so, what role did you play as it will help me take your perspective on board. You come across has very hostile in your posts and want to understand you better. Everyone has a right to opinion on these boards and would consider yours as important as anybodies, especially if you have come back from a war zone.


I am a Tsgt. in the United States Air Force. I am a tactical air command and control specialist, otherwise known as TACP. I have served in both Iraq and Afghanistan for many tours. I deploy out with Army units, Special Forces, Rangers, SEALS, etc etc etc. I have been in the s*%@ and have seen a lot of stuff go down. You people act like they are so peaceful. Well the truth is that every single insurgents that attacks US troops would be just as happy cutting your head off because you are not a child of Islam. They are very religious over there and the insurgents are called "extremists" and they believe that anyone not of the same religion deserves to die basically. So that means YOU as well as us.

Terrorism will never die and will never go away but we are making a dent, believe what you want to believe but we are making a difference in both of these countries.

man, there are bad people everywhere in the world, in EVERY SINGLE GROUP


just because some people that may or not may be in a country are bad, that doesnt mean you can go into that country and kill a culture, kill a life style, kill part of society, kill everything they know

and by doing that, creating hate and more insurgents


so really, EVERYBODY gets abused every single day, but that doesnt mean it gives you the right to start shooting everybody, just because they are around the abusers ...

One has to wonder how many times the people shooting at others can "mistake" a camera for a weapon.

I have read your last post and disagree with it. The Apache video isn't as cut and dry as you think. Does it show the true horror of war? Yes and the rules of engagement at that time are questionable. And for the remark about bad parenting and you shouldn't take your kids into a war zone. The whole country is a war zone. The gunning down of that van is perhaps the most damning part of the video. No hostility was shown by the driver nor its occupants.

This is very true in apaches do not just fly around looking for people to kill, they are dispatch to provide cover for troops under attack.




Those cameramen were following a bunch of insurgents. In the video there are 3 AK-47s and one RPG that you can see. Now some people argue that its a bi-pod for a camera but who uses a bi-pod for a camera??? maybe a camcorder but not a camera. And what moron would try to use a bi-pod in a warzone?


That bi-pod sure looked like a typical RPG to me. You can see the round fatter warhead end as the guy carried it.

For every insurgent you kill, 5 more will take their place. You aren't making much of a dent if it creates MORE insurgents, MORE chaos, MORE violence.

Yes, way to go, U.S Military! /sarcasm

YES

you are making a difference my friend

use LOGIC for this board's sake

if you kill a child, the rest of the family will become insurgents, if you kill a father, the rest of the family will become insurgents ...

you are not stoping terrorism, you are creating HATE against the US and all western countries and every other culture in this planet

there are extremists? well, let them alone, then ... why would you want to mess with them? and as I said, there are extremists in every single culture, subgroup of people in this planet

there are extremists on ATS even ...

10 long years, my brother....what had been achieved?

Did terrorism ended? Did the body bags count justified you being there? Did it made US respected? So many questions unanswerable.

You tried your best to defend yourself and the military industrial complex's actions there.

But it is not you to be doing the defending, for you were just a simple pawn in the bigger stakes. Even if you were the machine gunner who mowed down the lives of the innocent, the ultimate blame lies not in you, for wars do terrible things to humans, to the enemy and to yourself.

You were only fighting an idealism, a radicalised one that no amount of bullets can stop. You will have to kill everyone there, but in the end, was that the purpose you signed up for? And what would that have made you - a hero or pyschopathic killer of your own race - fellow humans?

You had achieved nothing worthwhile, stopped nothing destructive as the shias and sunnis now freely muscle for power, and your mind contaiminated by savagery no human should be exposed to, a throwback to the barbarism that mankind had sought so much to be elevated above from.

You can no longer distinguish morality and can only define it by the barrel of your gun.

Step back, my brother, the killing of your fellow brothers must end - americans, jews and arabs against each other. You will have to make a stand, to continue supporting the murders (platitudes easily explained away as # happens), or to end it and find better solutions of engagement for peaceful co-existant amongst different cultures.

There are more of rational us than the radicalized them from corporations, political leadership and religions.

Peace

some people didnt have math ... some people cant think straight ...

lets imagine right now, that some country started to invade the US, so they could kill all the people with blue eyes

if they kill your child, what would you do? you would fight back ... if they killed your family, or someone you knew, you would do the same

thats what the US is doing, they are attacking a subgroup by attacking a whole nation, that doesnt make sense and just create more hate

You should research how many soldiers are not telling the same story... It is because they were under a crappy commander who basically like Captain America from Generation Kill the mini-series. There are stupid people in the military and they sometimes do stupid things... bottom line. If you want to know what it is really like then join up and go see. Hell you dont even have to join up. Go be a journalist and go report it. Dont sit back here and tell a veteran that he doesnt know what he is talking about, hell I have only been over there since 2001....... But what do I know

Thank you for answering my question and your direct experiences are something I will never see in my life time. I have no desire to either. Believe me when I say your perspective is valuable, because it is, but you need to stop writing in such a hostile way. You can't ram your opinion down my throat, nor can I do the same to you, but we can engage in constructive dialogue that might go somewhere.

the most amazing thing is that, even today, we dont have conclusive results about 9/11 investigation, so this is an illegal war

if you want proof to what I just said, just look at the statements from the 9/11 investigation commission members ...

You know that there are TONS of terrorists cells in America and England RIGHT NOW?? CAuse there are..... We are preventing further attacks on us. We have already foiled around 10 major acts in the planning but you wouldnt have heard about that because you dont have a clearance. We do this by taking and ceasing assets, plans, money, weapons, and training locations.
