#2 Yeah, when there are no more NATO troops for alleged "friendlies" to shoot, who do you suppose they'll turn their attention to?

#3 The British couldn't tame Afghanistan, the Sovs couldn't, and now NATO/USA can't. No shame in that.

The shame is that we're still sending people to die meaningless deaths because the politicians won't admit defeat.

#5 "But we should be honest with each other," Malouk said. Without the medevac support, many of his troops will die where they are injured and that would hurt morale, he said.

Solution: Mount up in your US Taxpayer funded FORD Rangers, go out and kill bad guys until the shi* stops. If it starts back up again, go out and kill ya some more!

See ya around General Malouk.

#6 Considering he and his troops probably assisted with intel for the Taliban, now find it being used against them. No sympathy.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
