Just caught wind of this documentary about the battle in Afghanistan that gives a candid look inside the war zone at the soldiers and situations they are dealing with. It looks like a good film to bring you as close to the battle as possible without actually being there, and inside the minds of the brave men trying to figure it all out, stay alive, and make a difference for the non combative people who just want to live in peace there.

Taliban Boasts of Victory in Korengal Valley

Restrepo Update

42 US soldiers dead, Taliban Control Area.



[a local]We don't want Americans We don't want Germans. We don't want foreigners. We want Taliban and we don't want anything else.
[]
They [US] call it a reposition of forces. The Taliban call it a defeat.
[]
Boxes of US ammunition and tons of fuel left in underground tanks.
[]
There is a lot of ammunition left behind; mortars, rockets, missiles. This, God willing, we will you this against them.

As that article mentions - Nat Geo has also been showing this. An amazing bit of journalism that will change anyone that watches it for long.

It didn't change me a bit... just like the locals in the Korengal valley perfer their ways and their Taleban. Given the choice between a foreign military controlling my back yard or the local militia, I'm choosing the militia.

I'm from the US and I'm glad we lost the Restrepo base; we had no right being there to build it.

Im trying to find this online...with no luck....
Sgt Sal Giunta...what a #ing humble man. His comments, his tears for his fallen comrades.
The marks of a true man.
I hope he sleeps better a nights now. Good luck and a long life to him.
Good luck and a long life to all those daily have to endure the soul destroying existance of Afghanistan and Iraq, be they British or American.

KEEP LOW - MOVE FAST.
