In these heated and heady days of the US government seeking to gain more control over weapons here at home due to tragedies in our communities, it appears that same government has little or no control over weapons in the very theater our military personnel are fighting

It appears those barbaric knuckle-dragging Pashtun hill people believe blood and race is more important than politics. How dare they? I think its best that the more advanced cultures of the west flatten their villages and wipe them out once and for all.

Sounds like humanity has lost its sense of understanding, I know you are not the only person that believes this way, perpetual war is bad for all cultures of the world these people have survived this long not because of dragging their knuckles but because they have preserved their values and are akin to taking care of one another the best way they know how. I can think of other countries that would rather cut each others throats and are on the verge of social suicide but this is another story. But I fail to see how that last comment has much to do with RPGs I will say that stuff like this is what enables evil men to keep on doing stuff like is speculated by springer simply because people dont want to see the errors of our ways
You're apparently forgetting that Afghanistan was in a civil war for years before those foreign boots arrived.

If only the country that sent the Afghans stinger missiles in their war against the evil, monstrous, demonic commies

OBL is supposedly dead.
The Taliban are supposedly no longer in power
Al qeada is supposedly on the skids in Afghanistan.
That means its supposedly time to get the hell out of Dodge.

Fast and Furious Afghanistan: More Illegal Weapons in The Hands of The Enemy? pg. 5
A Trip Through Kandahar:
Ben says that around 9:00PM J. returned with approximately 10 Compass protection force members one of whom was Mr. D. who Ben recognized from his orientation training, and told Ben they were going to take him "somewhere else" and ordered Ben to get in a car.
After a few minutes the car arrived at a military checkpoint and Ben saw his opportunity.
” While we were driving through the back streets of Kandahar, which did not appear to be a direct route, not knowing where I was being taken, or for what reason, when the vehicle stopped at a well lit military check point, I immediately exited the vehicle, by choice. The guard who were sitting in the back seat with me grabbed my vest from behind and then I could hear him on his radio calling for assistance.
The military guard at the check point had come out at this point. I called for assistance to the guard saying "help I've been kidnapped". Straight after that I was surrounded by the Compass Force Protection crew which emanated from the other Compass support vehicles.
At some point another guard entered the back of the vehicle and he was pulling me into the vehicle. There were approximately 5 people that were pulling me and hitting me and I ended up being forcibly put back into the vehicle. This was witnessed by the guards at the checkpoint."

There is some enemy right there.
Those who are living in Afghanistan are US enemies
And there should be a program to take back every RPG that they have.
They should be broken tooth slaves.
Break their arm , break their tooth , disarm them.

Having been in theater myself. on both the military and contractor sides of the coin, I can assure you this is far more than a disgruntled employee...
This is an obvious cover up and I for one, fear for the safety and security of the young man..
This reeks in my opinion
