    This made me sick to my stomach. And to think I was in Iraq 2 years ago serving and did my fair share of cleaning humanity of this filth now I feel as if I didn't even do a thing.

    You could spend and entire life in the Mideast cleaning it up.

    When you left a week later, it would revert right back to the way it was before you got there.

    History sure proves that. One quick glance at a history of the Middle East from ~1000 AD till present shows nothing has changed there except the technology people use to kill each other.

    It just boggles the mind a bit.

    Tango, thanks for your service.

    Nothing is ever going to change in that part of the workd. This is the same Taliban that Hamid Karzai wants to share power with.

    Me thinks it is time for the US to leave Afghanistan. The US should arm the Predator drones with tactical nukes. When the Taliban acts up, turn the immediate area into glass.

    Agreed with everyone.


    They haven't stopped killing each other for centuries. The Hatfields and McCoys on steroids.

    Every country that has ever gone into the Middle East, end up coming home leaving it just as they found it.

    You can take the sheepherding camel jockey out of the desert, but you can't take the desert out of the sheepherding camel jockey.

    In short, they will be killing each other over stupid crap long after we are gone. Their religious leaders play into the "poor poor pitiful me" mentality by blaming the infidel, the same as some so called religious and ethnic leaders here in the United States play into the "racist white man is keeping us down" mentality.

    The problem is, the people there don't care about anything beyond their own doorstep. It all about "what's in it for me". I spent a year living with an Iraqi Army unit and a Border Enforcement unit trying to train them to take care of themselves. The only thing they ever cared about was if chow showed up on time and if their pay was right on pay day. No amount of US training or equipment will fix them. They have to decide to do it. But, their indivdual, then family, then tribe, then maybe country attitude, prevents it.

    Sadly in that region of the world, they have no regard for human life. Wether it be a 7 year old boy, or a 90 year old woman.

    All the effort our men and women put in over there, probably won't change a thing.

    We could occupy the place for ANOTHER 9 years and still be in the same position we're in, today.


    But we'll stay there, egged on by idiots telling us we're "fightin' for freedumb", or stopping "communism", or some other BS boogeyman story.
    Why we even put Karzai in power, is ridiculous as well. Too much idiocy to even begin speaking on, on this issue.

    One of the problems is that a proficient military is a threat to the average Arab dictator. i spent the better part of a decade trying to train Arabs: It was like herding cats. There is a reason why Israel has wiped their butts in several wars.
