Medevac in the Sandbox

This is a documentary on medevac operations in the Afghan War. Take 25 minutes out of your day and watch it.



Damn shame that it took Al-Jazeera to air it. It should have been shown on any of the three networks, but they are all too chickenshit. After all, it might upset some asswipe from the Christian Taliban.

"You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out." -- General William Tecumseh Sherman to the citizens of Atlanta.

Billy Sherman was right, and he prosecuted his war with the tenacity our current crop of generals and politicians would shy from
Could not watch any more of it after I saw the US Trooper w/ no legs ... I used to think Afghanistan was worth the sacrafice...then I realized it was not...only a minute portion of our country sacrifices for this conflict, and we certainly don't pay taxes for it..
Borrowing money from CHINA to pay for a war ....
SIGH
I say get out...it's not worth another plugged nickel and certainly no more American lives...
Tired SO Tired of US being the world's policeman ...
