Once again, the game boys of ATS show just how truly ignorant that they are. Here's news for you little boys. Every M-16 has a bayonet lug. It's on there for a reason. The US uses more bayonets now that we every have. Oh, and since you morons don't really know anything about our military, I'll let you in on something else. We use horses in Afghanistan, even today.
Now go back to your little video games and the real warriors will continue to protect your worthless asses.
I'm sorry I didn't know that going across the planet BLOWING UP PEOPLES FAMILIES AND DEVASTATING THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE WAS SAVING MY F****NG LIFE!!!! You are truly pathetic. YOU are pathetic. There is not one single legitimate reason why US soldiers are in the middle east. Any hatred towards America from the middle east came about because we went there in the first place and started blowing things up and toppling governments.
Who are we fighting? The Taliban that was initially backed by the US government to fight off the soviets in proxy wars during the (still ongoing) cold war?
Here's a hypothetical scenario for you to wrap your head around: Imagine China said that a group of US terrorists blew up some buildings in China. By parallel logic, anyone supporting the US invasion of Afghanistan should welcome Chinese soldiers marching in our streets to look for the terrorists. By parallel logic, supporters should sit back quietly as Chinese attack drones blow up our cities. And when a big fat missile blows up your family you better not pick up a rifle and become an insurgent against them, because you support the exact same thing they're doing if you support the US invasion of Afghanistan.
How typical of zealous warmongers to believe that blowing people up makes the world a peaceful freaking place. Violent people are ignorant.
