Afghanistan landmines article
« on: October 31, 2011, 01:20:20 PM »

In last night's show (10/30), Mark was talking about an article on Military.com about US and Afghan troops using Afghan citizens to walk ahead of them in case there were landmines. Does anyone have a link to the article? I can't find it.

No one has conjectured that I could quite possibly be a Libertarian posing as an Anarchist trying to pretend to still be a Libertarian; or what I like to call an Anarcho-Hustler.

I find low level enforcers and enablers trying to justify major breaches in Geneve Convention war regulations disturbing and sickening. Also very suspicious.

They should put little yellow flags on land mines, so nobody steps on them.  They're pretty dangerous.

Better yet, just put those little bite size Snickers bars in em and reduce the blast force by about 80%.

I think everyone could live with that.

How about if each one triggered a lawyer to pop up out of a trap-door spider hole and suck your dick? 

We don't have an overabundance of Snickers.

Pretty harsh stuff, Fred.


If I was that guy that stepped on the mine, I'd hunt down those other dudes that saved my life and kill em myself.

You have a good point there Mike.  I wonder how his face looks after healing.  Man, that's tragic - but  then, I'm sure he was trying to kill the natives. 

All so useless and mindnumbing.

Looked like he was a native to me.  Also didn't show any proof of what the article claimed.

Blackie hasn't been here for a month.
