holy shit. hear about the insane car chase marcus lattrell got involved in?
part of his recuperation was he got a puppy to take care of. he named it after his fallen comrades. some dickheads shot his dog randomly (they had been doing it because, as i said, they are dickheads). he chased them for several minutes at over 100 miles an hour with 2 pistols and on the phone with 9-1-1, perfectly calm the whole time.

Quite interesting reading. Quite similar story happened with group of russian special forces in Checnya. They were taking part in secret operation and were located by group of civilians. But they didn't let them free, cause they were given orders to kill them because if their location was uncovered that would be failure of whole operation. They followed this order, but when operation was over they were claimed war criminals and put to prison.

I just read the book that Luttrell wrote. It hit me hard. First off, it's amazing the training these SEALs receive. Talk about grueling. Second of all, it's really amazing that those 4 lone soldiers were able to fend off that many Taliban soldiers for as long as they did. It's easy to see why they received the training that they did.
The hell those soldiers went through was unbelievable, and it's people like that that make me happy to say I'm an American. As Americans, we owe ourselves to people like that.

The book also made me want to punch a few politicians. If not for the Rules of Engagement that our politicians so desperately wanted, that situation would have never happened.

RESPECT! THANK you for bringing US what the regular media WILL NOT! Maybe if people see the faces, somethings will change?
