    If you get a chance check out his movie, either at the local Video Outlet or currently being aired on Nat Geo.. produced by Sebastian Unger, it provides a very good glimpse into the futility of Afghanistan...

    It shoud be required viewing for the hawks amongst us, to begin to understand how futile this war is and how there cannot be a good ending..

    War what is it good for...

    I DVR'd this Monday night. I'm looking forward to watching it as soon as I get a chance.

    I didn't get to watch the whole thing yet, but those boys meant some business. When they built that COP overnight, hot damn...Molon Labe. I admire their courage and cohesion but DAMN we have to stop hanging our boys out there in these tiny holes. Fighting them on such a small scale isn't going to accomplish anything. It's Vietnam all over again.

    For sure... not sure when the folks inside the beltway will ever understand the position that they have put our troops in.. combined with the ongoing theft and fraud that occurs daily there, time to call everybody home and regroup...

    Sal Guinta was also involved... find it interesting how post his reception of the medal of honor, there were some who claimed that this honor was being "feminized" because he rescued soldiers, vs. killing the enemy. I suspect that just about anything can and will be politicized.
