Random thoughts...

The pictures from the Boston Globe never, ever fail to be sobering, haunting, and beautiful in their own way. Kudos to the photographers.

Vets/active duty Farkers: I'm sorry that yours and my country can't bring you home from this utter farking shiatstorm. I don't agree with the politics of why you are where you're at, but you have my respect. Some of you are there because you believe in "the cause," some of you are just trying to provide for your families. either way I don't care, just wanted to say I respect you.

Goddamnit. It's the 21st goddamn century. Why the fark can't our species stop killing each other over such trivial farking bullshiat.

Farker T: next time let's not, okay?

Orly? You'd rather they brought it here while we sit on our hands? You like the dead faces to be the faces of your own citizens and children? Like it or not, "let's not" is not a choice we have the luxury of making. So, that limits us to the choice: their turf, or ours?

Bring the troops home! Stop letting them die for corrupt politicians!

Anyone that supports this war can easily find an Army recruitment form on the Army website. Grab yourself a gun if you think this is right.

I Am The Egg Matt Drudge Smears Upon His Body: OK_breathe: Thank you so much to all who have served, are serving, and will continue to serve. You awe me with your courage, and humble me with your sacrifice. If wishes had wings you would all be safe and warm and home with your loved ones.

You're welcome. It was an honor wearing a military uniform for this country.


And my thanks to all who serve.

I have nothing but respect for the men and women who would risk their lives and livelihoods for what they believe are the best interests of this nation.

I have nothing but CONTEMPT for anyone who would dare usurp their loyalty, courage and sacrifice to serve ulterior motives, or the interests of third-party political entities.

Support the troops.

Question your government.

Bring them HOME.

I was fortunate enough to have Thanksgiving dinner with my Army son who recently returned from his Afghanistan tour without a scratch.

Plus Lady Invictus, my non-military son, my parents, my brothers and sister, nieces, nephews, all their significant others, and my 9 month old great-niece who decided to cover my cheek with sloppy baby kisses.

As long as this continues, Muslims will never exist peacefully with other
humans.

FTFA:
"Afghan children read from the Koran as they attend a traditional school
held in an old synagogue now being used as a Muslim mosque in Herat
November 4, 2009."

The cycle must be broken and while the "reformation" of Islam ought to
be done by Muslims, the West must help it along by forcing the separation
of mosque and state and the first step on that road is teaching the children.

Do you believe that the soldiers that are dying now are not OUR OWN citizens and children? Do you really believe that our military pressure on Iraq and Afghanistan has prevented attacks on US soil?

If anything, it has given those who may be so inclined motivation to carry out such attacks.


Like it or not, "let's not" is not a choice we have the luxury of making. So, that limits us to the choice: their turf, or ours?

To me it would seem profitable to make an attempt at decyphering their motives:

Why do they want to fark with us?

Are we doing things that are either threatening them or pissing them off?

If so, what? And is there some way that we could STOP doing those things?

I know that this concept is a radical shock to the collective ego of the US (and that's one hell of an ego), but really, why not take the chance?

I am one of those weak-kneed people that always heed warnings about disturbing images, so I don't click on them. I could never handle the brave work of war photographers, emergency response workers, or medics. Many of the "safe" images in the slide show were disturbing enough.

I'd guess that it's because the hammer is down thus making the Beretta double action for the first shot. It would be roughly the same as carrying a Glock in that manner.

I have no military experience. I've rented the 92 and newer ninety-two a couple times at the range. Fine pistol, but I prefer my Kimber 1911. I've been through basic defensive pistol training taught by the sheriff's deputy responsible for training LEO's in a neighboring county. I was taught to take the safety off while rotating the pistol forward during the draw. How do you teach when you train people?

BesiktasBoy83: Great photographs. Number 28 was horrible. The chick whose husband died was pretty hot, she wont be single for long. Not being direpectful, just saying.
The USA is going too soft in Afg. They should tell the Taliban every time a soldier dies, we kill 100 civilians. The civilains would kill the Taliban. Problem solved. They are brutal people and they understand this kind of talk and respect it.


The Soviets did in the 80's.. they planted boobie traps and explosives in teddy bears, toy trucks etc and scattered them around the countryside....they fire bombed entire village full of women and children because some goat herder looked at a colonel funny....
but hey I guess if you can go to sleep at night doing those things and think you're a tough guy so be it...there's really nothing more to say...

It depends, "keep your weapon on safe until you intend to fire" is one of the 4 rules that they absolutely hammer into our heads. On the qualification courses of fire they put the emphasis on firing the first round double action and the subsequent followup shots single. The difference is probably in the use. On deployment service members are armed at all times and to prevent negligent discharges and the like, clearing your weapon frequently on base, and keeping it on safe are emphasized to a ridiculous degree.

I definitely prefer the 1911 to the m9, but the only guys who have them are recon. Their training with it is almost all continuation of fire drills. They place their rifle around their back, rack the slide as they bring it to their chest, and then push outward in an isosceles stance. 1911s point so much better, going from that to a 9mil feels like going from gripping a deck of cards to gripping a beer bottle.

I think we are digressing though. These are amazing images, and I admire the balls that the photographers who took them have. Its relatively easy to run towards gunfire and explosions carrying a rifle, but when all you have to shoot with is film... I feel the same way about our docs.

A doc that died recently that I took a combat life savers course from, was shot while bandaging up another shot marine. Its stories like that, that motivate marines to take care of their corpsman at all costs.

SuperNinjaToad: Why is humanity so farking cruel?

Humanity is not cruel at all. But this isn't humanity, this is depravity. Don't confuse the two.

The human mind allows us to do extraordinary acts of kindness and benevolence, far beyond what any animal can do, but also acts of brutality and cruelty that no animal could ever conceive of.

Humanity is human intelligence used to make the world better. Evil is human intelligence used to make the world worse.

One thing is to the balls to go there guns blaxing, but I'm pretty sure it takes a special kind of man to jump into the firefight with nothing but a sidearm and your kit, just to retrieve a fallen soldier.

my cousin was a navy corpsman with the luck to travel with the special forces through some of the bad shiat. the stories he's told me are borderline unbelievable, and he really doesn't like to talk about it. i don't blame him.

one of the first things you ever learn in political science is that when you kill civilians it only makes them cling closer to their government.

remember the "patriotism" that covered America right after 9-11 ???

that's why i know this whole war was is bullshiat. an attack on us like on 9-11 wouldn't logically follow getting us to do anything the "terrorists" "wanted". Osama was Harvard educated he would know this. it was clearly for an ulterior reason. im not going to say that it was to make shiat loads of money for select few later, but i'll let you think about that.

in any case yeah attacking civilians bad business, doesn't work unless your aim is genocide.

I agree, but it's hard to tell muslims this without seeming like an evil American trying to destroy islam and all that. What would have been nice is if we did this 8 years ago and soon all the kids that were young back then would be coming of voting age and could start to really change things for the better.

My god. I know this is fark, but I always hate so many of you after reading threads such as this.

Point number one.

The United States placed Saddam Hussein in power. He did have weapons of mass destruction. We knew he used them. We were fine with that until he became so anti-American as to no longer be useful.

Whatever our politicians many reasons for being there, this is a chance to finally pick up after ourselves. Running home because we think it's to scary for soldiers who volunteered is not the answer.

Afghanistan was invaded directly as a result of their association with the Taliban, who have been at war with the United Sates for generations now. They haven't stopped fighting. Why should we? This brings me to point number two.

Point number two.

They (insert name of militant Islamic radical group of your choice) hate us. Period. Not for our "freedums!!1!" but because we deny their god and willfully live lifestyles they find spiritually detestable. Read Deuteronomy lately? They believe that, and much more more. To the letter. They will lay down their lives to kill as many of us as possible. Civilian casualties and shields are acceptable to them, as furthering the will of Allah is the greatest good. Every one of us they kill is lowering the statistical chance that we "infect" a believer with our frivolous western lifestyle.

They will never stop, but they can be controlled. As long we have a military presence in the middle east, they have a military target.

Our soldiers may have many reasons for joining, but the bottom line is; they stare into face war over there every day so that we have to look at pictures to even know what that looks like.

Minimizing United States' civilian losses is exactly what our government officials are elected for. We aren't leaving. Our soldiers are not coming home.

Sorry to break it to you.

1/10. nice try. keep it about the holiday and how any of the service members in Afghanistan, as well as the rest of the world, would much rather be anywhere else today than there.

/spent Thanksgiving 2005 at Kandahar AF
//played an entire season of NCAA 2005 that day
///glad to be inside the wire for the meal (and eggnog in a can)

I had Thanksgiving 2007 in Iraq, outside the wire. We had a Combat Outpost set up away from our main Forward Operating Base. Our Support Company had their cooks make us Thanksgiving at the COP, using a Mobile Kitchen Tent. We split the platoon in half so one half could grab dinner, while the other half maintained the patrol, then rotate through for dinner.

Unfortunately, word got out in Fobbitville that Fox News would be doing a live broadcast from the COP, where you could say hi to the folks back home. They all raced out to the COP, ate up all of our farking food (despite already having eaten the really nice Thanksgiving at the main Dining Facility at the FOB), and then began telling bullshiat "war stories" for the camera.

What little turkey we had left, we had to give to our local Iraqi interpreters, and a few important locals we had invited over, so we had cold ham. It was pretty hilarious when one of our biatch-slapped some POGue and took back a sweet potato pie. Those assholes had already eaten all the pumpkin pie.



/At least the ham was pretty decent.

And let me guess Haliburton charged the US $100 a head for that meal probably which you didn't get any of.

/always dig the Sgt Otter stories

I have such a crush on Sgt Otter, but I assume I'm not even close to alone in that.



Nope. He's one of the few people on Fark whose posts I look forward to reading.

I would say the gore level is more along the lines with a mild suggestion of being a war.

Perhaps I am desensitized, but I did not find that picture disturbing. At the same time, I realize that it is horrific.

I'm glad that the west is in Afghanistan. I think we made the right choice there and appreciate the risk those over there are making. Especially since at this point they are mostly doing it to help the people be finally rid of the Taliban.

mud_shark: RedThree: Yo, mud_shark, how many tours have you done?

Yo RedThree how many have you done?

Are you suggesting that just because you believe it is unlikely that I've actually been to Afghanistan as part of our "war" that I should not have any opinion on it?

Really? How many tours of duty did our last 10 presidents serve?

Or am I just supposed to blindly kowtow to the opinion of someone who claims to have done KP duty in a tent in Kuwait for 3 months during Operation Desert Shield?

Oh, and Farker T go dig up another strawman because I never said shiat about them hating our freedom.

Go ahead and defend the Taliban and those who accepted them as leaders....It's exactly like the US, isn't it?

Go ahead. This should be really interesting.


Put up or shut-up. If you think it is so important that we fight these wars, why aren't you fighting them? What kind of pissant, pussy, chicken-shiat, hypocritical coward sits there urging our troops to war while you sip Mike's Cold Lemonades with your buddies in Colorado? If you served, then I owe you an apology. But I am pretty damn sure that with your limited world-view, you likely have never left your land-locked state, and do not at all express any understanding of the world. I bet you don't even own a passport.

Nobody here is defending the Taliban, they are just questioning why we are fighting wars that have no goal that can be obtained. If the goal in Afghanistan is to overthrow the Taliban and set up a real government, the answer is easy. I could tell you how to have it done in a year or two. It starts with a draft. Draft 1-2 million Americans, train them up and ship em to Afganistan. Give people there security and meet their basic needs and opposition would have no chance of winning. We could meet the goal of setting a government there and have a chance to make the nation better and more friendly to us. Oops, we still wouldn't have Bin Laden though, as he obviously isn't there. Looks like we'll need to invade Pakistan to get him. But they have nukes, so it might be tougher.

Same thing in Iraq. Get a large enough army that we can insure safety, water, sewers, power, food, jobs, etc to the majority of Iraqis and we can win that war too. Hope you don't have any plans if you are 18-25, becasue we'll need you to join up and ship out.

Of course that would never farking happen because America would not stand for these wars if we were drafting their sons and daughters and shipping them out, because deep down we all know that Afghanistan and Iraq are no real threat to our lives or way of life. So we sit here and posture and spout crap to one another while young american men and women continue to get maimed, destroyed and twisted and our politicians continue to fail.

I was for intervention in Afghanistan (and against same in Iraq) since 9/11. Now, I am not so sure what the West is fighting for there. Against terrorist breeding grounds? Against the Taliban regaining power? Both? I can understand the former, but am not so sure anymore about the latter. If the populace is so inclined not to fight the Taliban themselves through building up proper government and military institutions, maybe they deserve to be under Taliban rule. Sad to say. Of course, if the Taliban regain power and use that power to set up terrorist training camps, then it's not just the Afghans that are affected and the West has more justification to fight Taliban rule.

Yeah sure, when they were fighting the soviets and not playing nice with Iran, but remember when they started blowing up U.S. embassies in '98 and the whole Clinton cruise missile thing?

To be fair though, that isn't "generations" exactly, I just figure that now it's younger guys trying to blow our things up.

Besides, I was on a soapbox. I think I did pretty well for that to be the only decent counterpoint so far.

First off, to all who said thanks for our service, we thank you for that, more than you can possibly imagine.
Second, To those who despise us....Sorry, we have made a choice to do what our country asks of us. We don't have to like it, or even agree with it. It is our way of paying back our debt to our nation for our daily freedoms.
Finally, To those who said "Kill 'em all", I ask you to think about what that says about you, because it is not what it says about our training OR our humanity.

Anyone that supports this war can easily find an Army recruitment form on the Army website. Grab yourself a gun if you think this is right.


.....Nice advice. Now how about you EABOD and pay attention.

The people that believe in service to others before self already joined up. The people that believe in self before service post snarky little comments on Fark saying how stupid the military is.

I wonder which one you fit in to?

Some of those comments made Fark look like recess at a day care.

Well douche, I would appreciate it if you didn't misquote my statements. I also doubt your claims of service, and call you a fraud.

The military men and women are the cream of the crop, they also agree with me.

They know they aren't there helping people, why do you think they are guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan? Because they know this isn't a war of defense, it's a war of conquest and making money for the rich guys.

If my country was attacked, I'd be the first in line to defend it, but I will not die for lies, and neither should these fine men and women!
