Now back to the original thread The picture it does show looks extremely old and if they are army there definitely not average soldiers. The DCU uniform has been out of the army standard uniforms for a while now no one with exception of SF would be allowed to wear it. I doubt SF is wearing it because the uniform was prone to ripping(cheap stitching)
So it leads me to three possible options
1 Old picture possibly beginning of the war or not afghan at all and actually a Iraq photo
2 SF team, Seal, CIA SAD, british or another nation sf team
3 faked by Iran wouldn't be the first time they pulled something like this

These people are terrorists, and they want to kill you and your family and everything that you know.
This is turning into vietnam. These dudes have no idea what they're fighting for and their focus has gone astray

Yeah, these are Americas Finest alright.
I wish I had a few mins alone with them, one at a time.
You know, so we could talk things out.
Disgusting pieces of garbage.
I can only hope that Karma decides to remove them from this Earth in the same way.
I am tired of these pieces of **** breathing my air.

Murder has been and always will be in every war. Disgusting and wrong, yes. I find it shocking how this is such a huge deal, civilians get murdered in cold blood everyday in every country.
I agree mate..
There's over 100.000 troops..
No one can expect there not to be a few rouges..
Yes it tarnishes the rest but it's far from unexpected..
Seems the military is doing what it should and prosecuting these scumbags..
Ya .. it's 'all good' and 'normal' until is someone else's kids and families that get killed ...
What would you guys do if this was your family that someone was torturing and killing ..? and that too .. right here in the good ol' USA ! ..
What would your position be if this was happening to your mang other people in your town and country ...? senseless killings .. what would you do if your wife was walking your kids to school one day .. and they get bombed by a remote controlled drone from above ..?
cowards sitting far away in a control center .. not even having the courage to fly the plane themselves .. use a joy stick to kill your family for no reason ... yup it's 'all good' .. until it's your turn..
War is war. it doesnt matter where it is, what started it, or what the outcome was PLANNED to be. war is war. its bad, its evil, and think any war can be won is stupid. both side suffer, because the people suffer. the soldiers suffer on both sides. There is nothing civil about being occupied, not in a time of war. the blood shed will be there. Its called war.
But now to these cowards you spoke of. You mean the soldiers operating the equipment right. the cowards on the joy stick right......well...they do their job I guess. but hell if you require an actual aircraft heck take your pick, they are just as leathal. doesnt matter. We have technology and we use it. The coward however is the guy sitting at home saying this and that about whats going on but has yet to do anything honorable in his/her country. Dont talk about it, be about it. Or are you a coward?
