no one cares what you believe is right or wrong baby killer. before, it was the government telling you what to invade and who to kill, now you have an opinion on whats right and whats wrong? did you apply that to when you were shooting up kids? go back to being neutral soldier, thats where you belong.

That is what everyone should be asking right now.


I mean, it isn't just troops at a base.


Special Forces? Why?

You do, obviously, because you responded to me.

I had every opportunity to kill a lot of people if I chose to, but for the most part, unless they were a serious threat (and by serious, I don't mean randomly shooting at us), we let it go.

Didn't have to though.

Valuable resources there.

Its in everyone's best interest that terrorist groups not have control of this vast amount of wealth.
