I'm speechless. The worst thing I've had to contend with today is a customer demanding the impossible.
those guys keep having their departure date delayed. They were already supposed to be home. Some have already come home. My brother should be home by friday, was supposed to be home last week. That is the worst part.Flyingjibus said:I have someone who I believe was involved in that. Have not heard about them yet. Waiting is the worst part.
If we just pull them ALL out now, does it make it worse for those that dont come home, or better knowing there wont be any more joining them.
Reading Black Hawk Down it seemed to be the overwleming opinion of those guys was that the withdrawl of forces from Somalia after that battle made the deaths of their comrades meaningless.
How do you fight a war that everyone wants ended but no one is willing to fight the way we need to in order to end it?
Meet the people who've been caught in the middle of three decades of war. See the dispair in their eyes, the frustration at a society that's a shadow of what it once was. Watch a man in his seventies on his hands and knees, voluntarily, working the concrete on a runway used to support coalition aircraft, trying to do his part to rid the nation he loves of the Taliban. See what's really going on, and not what's on the news, and you understand. Obviously not all agree, but that's my take.How do you fight a war that everyone wants ended but no one is willing to fight the way we need to in order to end it?
