Return to Afghan combat outpost leads to unexpected firefight



They were the first U.S. soldiers to set foot in this remote corner of Logar province in more than three years. Deployed to support an Afghan battalion, they did not intend to engage in combat. The Taliban, however, had other plans for them. “Our role wasn’t really to fight,” said Lt. Graham Hennig, a platoon leader with Dragon Troop. “It just so happened that the fight crept it’s way up to us.”

    Looks like an arid Vietnam to me. 3000 yds away sniper. Then back and forth return fire from I don't know where. That Lt who had been a civilian in Kabul could have given better Intel there than being called up to active duty. Sorry but if my kids go to fight it has to be more than for Afghan girls being free to wear makeup. Time to leave.

    We Jews are appreciative of you gentiles fighting our Zionist wars in ambition of a world without borders ruled over by our soon to come messiah. Though we cannot respect the gentiles which are lower than us; we, the chosen people of GOD, appreciate your servitude to us and your willingness to die in doing so.

    The U.S. is not the policeman of the world, let Afghans solve their problems alone.

    Two things to always remember in the military.
    Hurry up and wait.
    And, always expect the unexpected.

  31. Chris Clark says:

    Another thing is that I really hate seeing us pull out of places we have holds on. Yeah, it's nice to get our other troops back home and out of fighting, but it's kind of like spitting in the faces of our previous troops we've had fighting. When we leave, everything will go right back to shit and all progress we have made will be gone.

  32. Chris Clark says:

    Based on the celebration fire from the Afghan Army, I would say that there are going to be a lot of friendly fire casualties
