Saw a great quote today

"21 century technology combined with 12th century fantacism has turned the whole world into a tender box"

Kicking a PAO to the curb

I know we like to keep the media informed about current operations. However yesterday a story came out about Marine Force Recon being deployed behind Taliban lines in Marhja, Afghanistan...This is not something that should be talked about until the guys get back not during current operations. I hope everyone realizes that our enemies actually do watch the news and telling them hey look out for the helicopters coming your way may not be smart. Just my humbe opinion.

It is time to call a spade a spade

If this story out today about U.S. Muslim soldiers attempting to poison their fellow soldiers the then there should be no doubt in anyones mind that in fact Houston we have a problem greater than anyone wants to admit. CBN news has broken the story stay tuned for this one.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's confession

Worth the watch warning graphic at places.

I have been quiet about current operation in Astan

So far Operation Together has gone off fairly well. The Taliban are again using human shield becuase they know our ROE which all but prohibits to the point of costing US lives the use of force that would endanger civilians. Our grand father would be find this extemely amusing as they destroyed Europes cities. Keep in mind however this is a different time and and different war.

The main threat of the Taliban to combat troops is of course the IED, the biggest challange is to find them, and clear them before they go off. Well this Marine Col. is having a hard time doing this seems the Talib keep placing mines as fast as their guys can clear them. Here is a suggestion put a platoon to guard the intersection....

Also big happenings in Pakistan with the capture of the Talilban's number two and military commander in Pakistan. I wonder how much that cost us. For those that need a reminder, Pakistan's ISI encouraged the creation of al-Qaeda, the LeT who brought us the Mumbai attacks, and of course the Taliban. All in the name of keeping India off balance and creating strategic depth.
