An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan are being ordered to carry loaded weapons at all times while on base, in response to a rash of Afghan soldiers and policemen turning their weapons on coalition forces.
The directive, confirmed by Fox News, was issued by International Security Assistance Force Commander Gen. John Allen. It says that troops should no longer simply keep ammunition magazines close by — instead, those magazines should be loaded in the weapons.
When I first heard about this, I was shocked! Who would be stupid enough to order soldiers, IN A WAR ZONE, to carry UNLOADED weapons??????????? These animals are NOT our friends. They will NEVER be our friends! What do you do with rabid animals? YOU F***ING SHOOT THEM! Since there are so many in such a large area, I’d suggest something along the lines of….get the hell out of there, and nuke the sons of bitches! Problem solved.
Two Americans were killed Friday when a local village policeman opened fire in Farah province in the west. Two more Americans were shot and wounded in a separate incident in the southern province of Kandahar.
Thirty-nine NATO service members, mostly Americans, have been killed in these types of attacks so far this year. In one horrifying scene earlier this year, an Afghan soldier shot and killed an American while he was playing volleyball on base.
The attacks are up significantly — from 11 deaths in 2011. There were four such deaths in all of 2007 and 2008.
I wonder what changed between 2008 and now? /snark I am disgusted with the lack of leadership. I am revolted by the uncaring attitude. There will be no peace in that area….ever. Making nice with animals is getting civilized men and women killed. You don’t fight a war to make friends. You fight a war to freakin’ WIN! Destroy the enemy….COMPLETELY! Yet we have opened the door to such people, allowed them free reign in our country, and have to play nice, on our own soil, to those who would destroy us. The world has gone totally mad!
My heart breaks for the families of these men and women, who have sacrificed all.
