    Coffee or Die Magazine’s Marty Skovlund Jr. was given exclusive access to embed with a Special Forces team in the mountains of Afghanistan, and accompany them on a combat mission into ISIS-held territory.

    These Green Beret’s fit the common tropes associated with Special Forces: beards, long-ish hair, and relaxed attitudes along with a few sleeve tattoos sprinkled in for good measure.

    Although they sport ball caps and Glocks in lieu of cowboy hats and six-shooters, they are frontiersman all the same — charged with taming the Mohmand Valley.

    The team operates out of COP Blackfish, an isolated outpost in the Mohmand Valley and only a short walk from where the controversial “MOAB” was dropped last year.

                              LIKE a Million times over! Thanks to all who have served! Unfortunately, I was not able to, despite trying, because of a hearing loss as a kid. So, I try to support in other ways....

                              *If anyone in the US is looking for a way to directly help the soldiers that are deployed, you can sign up as a Soldiers Angel. Head on over to their website and sign up to commit to send a letter a week, and a small care package a month filled with things like single drink mixes, candy, magazines, baby wipes, or whatever else you can fit into a medium bubble envelope. The SAs will match you with a deployed Soldier whose name was entered into a database by their peers and is usually a Soldier who is noticed to have not gotten anything from family or friends for whatever reason. They do have you verify your info, etc. But it doesn't take too too long.
                              If you can't make that type of commitment, but still want to help, you can check your local Soldiers Angels to see where and when they are doing collections for care packages, or card sending campaigns. With Christmas coming, it is never too early to start signing those cards, or sending in donations! They also do card campaigns for Vets at home that are hitting birthdays, etc...there are so many ways to get involved! Also, if you know and would like to honor a vet with a card campaign, look up your local SA and shoot them an email! They love sending cards to our awesome Vets!
                              Stay safe out there!!!!

                                  They're special operators. Completely separate from the conventional military like the Navy SEALs or Green Beret etc. They kinda make their own rules and where were they want. Little bit more complicated than what I'm saying though lol.

One question we should ask is “who owns the planes and the ships that transport 90% percent of the world’s heroin from Afghanistan to the rest of the world in the first place? It sure isn’t the Taliban.

We spend 2 million dollars on a self driving supply vehicle and they spend a few dollars devising an IED to destroy our million dollar equipment. Now imagine this on a large scale over a decade and who wins that war...Wait this has been happening for the last twenty years!!!!!

I think the ones who still follow the book are trained and brainwashed to belive in it,because its been like that from generasjon to gen and when your told about the one and only truth from you are a kid,you will belive it.any normal grown human understand that the book is full of bullshit made up from people that knew very little about anything.Even facts that tell them what they are wrong about,they still would kill for some desert art called mohammed who was a war lord and its really not hard to understand that people back then could belive a man with power.but they still do it in 2019.Its amazing
