We haven't oppressed anyone.


Tell that to the 500 thousand woman and children we helped kill over the last 2 decades of meddling in the Middle East.

The statement quoted above is just...I can't even fathom how you could express that opinion and believe it. Not just the US mind you, NATO and the various other non member of it, including middle eastern outfits are in the business of oppression.

Look at the amount of youth in those countries. These kids have no adults to teach them proper ways of living and how to pull themselves out of the hole we put them in. We've destroyed their culture with our greed and financial/military meddling.


I don't want you to feel bad for me. I do what I do because I want to.


No I feel bad for every soldier whose mind and body are being used in a conflict that they believe is just, when quite frankly, all the evidence states otherwise. Made worse that your own country will refuse to take proper care of you when you get back.

Oh waaa.

Its us or them. Sometimes I wish people who make these comments would spend a day with these units. See what they see.

Its war. This platoon sized element of Taliban fighters were maneuvering on our guys. Apaches rightly took em out.

Good for them.

Not it's not us or them that sounds like that idiot Bush. In case you have forgotten we invaded their nation even though they did nothing to America. We are in the wrong here we should pull our people out hell even the Russians learned quicker than we did that fighting the Taliban is a waste of time.

That is entirely your view.

I have a different view on that matter which is more thoughtful than you care to give me credit for.

Do I agree with the Mission in Afghanistan? Yes. Do I agree with the civilian leaderships' way of handling the Mission?Not entirely.

Did I support our mission in Iraq? No. I found it to be wasteful and misguided. We didn't even get oil contracts at the end of the day. We left empty handed.


At least they now have democratic elections. But that too is shaky at best.

Afghanistan has no real national unity. Kabul does not control the country. Karzai' government is corrupt and the ANA are largely incapable of securing the country. If we had focused on Afghanistan we would have already left with a lot more to show for it than what we are leaving with in 2014. Am I happy with that? No. Can I change it? No.

I'm pretty tired of watching soldiers kill people, regardless of where they are, I don't need to be exposed to that crap.

I'm tired of seeing people killing people.

What say you?

Yah, let them go back to throwing acid in school girls' faces and bombing other innocents. Sometimes somebody with the means to do so has to step up.


How much of this was going on before we invaded?

War fare has not changed since its inception. The only thing that has is technology and media access. All those stats mean nothing. In wars long history, compared to other wars that is literately a drop in the bucket.

The same war crimes, atrocity's and killing have been going on since one ape lifted up a stick and beat another to death with it.

I feel bad for people who think like you do. Its wrong and the "evidence" of history and time, state otherwise

I can't speak for every soldier I was taken proper care when I got back, got every thing I needed.
Some don't some bitch because they are not taken care of, when they never tried to get any help.
Now I'm not stating that this is the case to all soldiers.

but for ever soldier who get the care, there is another who did not try and get it, one who did not want it.

So you think we should have gotten something for invading Iraq? Oh sure it's ok to invade countries that haven't attacked America as long as we get something out of it. That's just sick and twisted dude.

It was going on from the day the Taliban took over the country. This is a matter of historical record.

I don't recall saying that.

But ok.

Interestingly it does.call into question the whole "war for oil" dynamic though, doesn't it?

They are welcome to their opinion. I don't share it.

I am happy that it was shown in the video that we do pull back when there are children. **reports of children in the area and cant see in the tents....? Dont fire. and they did just that** We were put in many situations out there where the Mooj would purposefully hide in groups of children and fire at us, and we could do nothing but take cover and try to get to hand to hand range when he went for the re-mag. I fully support this and feel sorry for those that dont understand the tragedies of war.

There's a difference between a soldier and a warrior, and these guys aren't the latter.

In war you use every advantage and weapon you have to defeat the enemy.

This ain't COD.

Sorry. But we are there. And as long as we are, anyone pointing a gun
At my fellow soldiers will likely get some lead.
