US is really a big advanced war machine quite invincible .. we all know that
it has become SO EASY TO KILL with the modern tech that the enemy have no where to go
they cant hide .. they cant run
once they are spoted by those night vision apaches
i though in a war .. both side were egual ..this is not a war , its a bloodbath



i remember playing COD to spot the enemy with the night vision from high above
machine gunning and launching missile on them
it was actualy the best part of COD ..
loved the night vision part killing anything that move below
launching missile directly in the middle of the biggest groups
to make maximum damage .. and i was damn good at it because it is so easy
especially when the enemy cant retaliate at all

Warning This video is not a scene from Call of duty night vision part
2 Apaches kill a platoon of Taliban fighters

1 missile that cost a hundred thousand dollar for 1 guy walking .. WTH
its easy when each soldier know the tax payers are paying for those missile

The war for the US has become a joke
indoctrinating young americans into the concept of wars when they are very young
with very violent video games .. the more you kill the more you make points

with all the new video game concerning Iran fighting the revolutionary guards and taliban
are they preparing the young americans to participate in their futur war vs Iran ?
many will be happy to go play their favorite game in the ME
when the government will ask for more soldier .. the draft will be welcome
especially when the economy cant give job to these young americans
playing violent games all day long

just need to show a video from an apache killing a bunch of taliban from high above
and they will all blindly sign

Except that it is art imitating reality not vice versa. The games are made based on modern warfare techniques. Just as sim city is based on modern engineering of large cities.

Unless Mortal Kombat was indoctrinating kids to shoot lighting bolts from their hands.

First off the Hellfire runs anywhere from $20,000 to $70,000 per missile, depending on your sources. Let's at least get your facts straight here before you keep bashing the US.

The fact that taxpayers are paying for them has nothing to do with "how easy" it is for a soldier to fire them. The fact that every one fired means that that many fewer of his buddies, or even himself aren't going to be killed at that particular time.

Mortal Kombat ? i prefer Tekken Tag


all the FPS game are simulation to train futur soldier
turning any young kids who like those games into futur killer

Car and Plane pilots have many simulation game
FPS are to train soldiers

Wonder why there is so many soldier now that when they come home
with PTSD .. many military psychologist have told them to play FPS game
so those game are used to train and to calm down soldier when they return homes
and have difficulty to readdapt their old lifestyle before the war
apparently it help to make the transition back to america smoothier

They even give these cowards who control these drone type devices medals of honor...

Just like the video games.


The Pentagon is considering awarding a Distinguished Warfare Medal to drone pilots who work on military bases often far removed from the battlefield.

Pentagon officials have been briefed on the medal’s “unique concept,” Charles V. Mugno, head of the Army Institute of Heraldry, told a recent meeting of the Commission of Fine Arts, according to a report in Coin World by our former colleague Bill McAllister.

www.washingtonpost.com...


Your interpretation of the situation is pretty accurate Ben81.

Too bad more people didn't see it the same way.

if it were that easy, both wars would have been won.

they haven't.

the taliban and the iraqi "insurgents" have shot down hundreds of american apaches, choppers and fixed wing aircraft.

the videos you see are usually when they catch them completely off guard. they're almost always unarmed, and when they (apache pilots) fire they get the $#%^ out of there.

the taliban have also claimed the ability to defeat flir by using heavy robes and animal skins. they also attack when weather conditions make flying apaches impossible.

war is all propaganda. and the truth is the majority of u.s. troops lack instant air support if at all, and are patrolling afghanistan on foot and lightly armored vehicles.

they also aren't actively seeking out major combat, i believe, to avoid casualties and public backlash.

War certainly isn’t a damn joke to those of us who fight so speak for yourself.

Kids have been playing GI Joe for decades….before that it was cowboys and Indians. I think you’re being a bit dramatic.


with all the new video game concerning Iran fighting the revolutionary guards and taliban are they preparing the young americans to participate in their futur war vs Iran ?


Nope! Art imitates life…nothing more.


many will be happy to go play their favorite game in the ME

Did this work on you? Did you sign up after playing?


I didn’t think so.

This is just more anti-US propaganda. If you want to talk about who is grooming young kids for murder you should look at the middle-east. Iran does a fine job of brainwashing kids.

I can't stand how blood thirsty little #ing kids are these days, it's actually very disturbing. It's not like the metal gear days on the Nintendo anymore and since society has become so violent over the past twenty to thirty years, we are going to see more and more problems from the younger generations. No wonder gangs have become out of control!

I do find it so hard to process that our scary sci-fi future is arriving, and most people really don't care. They won't even consider the published casualties, the evidence against those killed, nevermind that there may be many more casualties untold. They don't seem to have any imagination for how weird it is to kill far-off people this way, and that this technology is really just getting going and could get way more extreme in the not-too-distant future.

I saw this article today:
www.nytimes.com... -drones.html

The point of the article is that drone warfare has the least collateral damage of whatever would be considered alternatives to going after terrorists blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. And ya know, I bet a lot of people see this as an advancement for the human race based on that article and other opinion and propaganda. And I think it's scary as all hell. So, I appreciate you starting this thread, and that someone is actually expressing some human perspective on it. Thanks OP

Soclety has hardly become more violent. Just the opposite in fact. Where does this illusion come anyway? Its not just you its lots of people who seem to ignore history and every statistic availble and declare everything is more violent now. Gangs are not new and have had much greater power in the past.

Your video's posted reminded me of Corporal Pat Tillman and the work he no doubt would have done raising awareness of this entire farce, had he been allowed to live. What a thorn in the side of the Corporate Never ending War Machine he would have been.

So you put two and two together, huh?


Have you asked him his reason for joining?

That’s your opinion…why don’t you ask people who serve what they’re fighting for. Maybe you’ll learn something.

Nobody makes someone kill innocent people…you’re making stuff up, dude.


Your thread is and obvious attempt and painting the military and the country in a bad light and its supported only by your own speculation. You are trying to make something out of nothing…ridiculous and transparent, sir.

Like the soldiers in the video
those are the real heroe of today fighting the real war
not with weapons but with words
contrary to the elites who can only fight with weapon high above
or providing weapons to alqueada (FSA)
the same alqueada then in Libya that Gaddafi was talking at first
i even didnt realise at first that he was right this old time .. i though he was a crazy dictators
damn i was so WRONG .. now everything in the news even aljazeera is supporting those "rebel"



When you start realising the truth .. the amount of info coming to you is overwhelming
when you wake up

at least i didnt swallow the 9/11 lies
i knew it was a controlled demolition from the start
for gaddafi .. i didnt even knew the guys until they spoke of him on TV
saying he was a brutal dictator that was killing woman and kids

Damn you guys are quick to derail anything bashing the evil agenda of the elites

your comment is the proof that disinfo "agent" do exist on ATS

i bash the country and the military ?

this is a clear attempt to twist the story in your favor

Let me repeat it to you slowly for a thousand time

The Government is NOT the Country
they dont even represent american interest anymore
always wasting trillions of dollars per yrs in the ME
while there is veteran homeless in the streets

The military have many real good soldier .. the problem is NOT the military
who are giving the orders to the military ?? the government

The government has become a dark entity that dont care for human lifes anymore
constently lies for damage control when they are caught
like the india boat shooting .. US say warning shot were fire
indian fisherman that were in the boat have another story .. no warning

the government is always lying .. especialy since 9/11
we would be complete ignorants to still trust them
dont you think ? put yourself in the truther shoes for a moment
your surely are more clever then blindly swallow all the crap and cover story they spread in the news

I know my arguments are strong but I am just one person, even though it may feel like “you guys”.

Don’t bother…the first sentence of your OP is “US is really a big advanced war machine quite invincible”. I don’t recall you making a distinct between the “US” and the “government” or the “military”.


The Government is NOT the Country
they dont even represent american interest anymore

Then make the distinction rather than blaming “the US”.

I don’t blindly swallow crap but I also don’t blame my country…I blame those responsible; there is a difference and I hope you understand that now.

Words have meanings.
