Marine Vet Exposes Controversial Footage of War Through His Own Eyes | Opinions | NowThis

‘Why are you thanking me? I didn’t do anything. I didn’t help anyone. I just perpetuated a system of senseless violence.’ — Marine vet Miles Lagoze is releasing real war footage to show Americans the war through his own eyes.

Miles Lagoze enlisted in the Marines as a combat cameraman. He says the Marines and US military let just about anyone in and go to the war in Afghanistan. Lagoze was tasked with producing U.S. military propaganda to be distributed to Afghans, but he kept the camera rolling to capture the reality of daily life at war. Lagoze then compiled the controversial footage into a war in Afghanistan documentary called Combat Obscura. Lagoze calls out Fox News and the media for glorifying war and sanctifying the military. Lagoze felt a lack of direction with the war in Afghanistan known as Operation Enduring Freedom. He recalls there being drugs everywhere (opium, hashish, weed).

    Okay when he says “anyone was getting let in” that’s a false claim. The drug wavers he refers to are for pot, anyone in the military will tell you how hard meps is on you for psychological impairments and lastly it’s almost a guarantee for you to be turned away with a bad enough criminal record especially with the Marine Corps

    U.S. " Do you, on your Father's Soul PROMISE not to attack the Afghan Puppet Government if we pull out of your country for ever and cease this conflict." Taliban " YEAH! Only if your Country will supply us with GUNS, Bullets, and Bombs for 10 years, and pay us 100 Billion Dollars a year for 7 of those ten years increasing to 200 Billion on the 8th to the 10th Year! So we can get our Economy going." U.S., Why the GUNS BULLETS and BOMBS?" Taliban " You can't trust the Syrians." U.S. " Well we see no Problem in that, we'll even throw in a Dealership that sales Pickup Trucks For you. It's a deal. Let's sign the PEACE ACCORD!" Taliban " OK! May Allah Walk in your Front Door. ALLAH AKBAHR!"
