They should use those guys to cleanup crime in our own cities. Imagine that body count. Kill them all let God sort them out!

Not to totally hijack the thread, but I figured this was the place to mention what just happened in Afghanistan. The Taliban shot down a helicopter, killing 31 people, including 20 of the famed Navy Seals Team Six.

http://news.yahoo.com/31-americans-7-afghans-killed-helicopter-crash-145151275.html

I hardly believe those Tali-assholes were smart or coordinated enough to know they were killing the guys who got Bin Laden, but I'm pretty sure this will be seen as a "great victory" and that "Allah is pleased with it." What a f***ed up world view those idiots have.

More important than that...what a shame this happened, especially to these great American heroes. God bless their sacrifice.

Just read this and was coming to post. Terrible.

Sad, sad news.

Fucking blows.

Talk about a freak scenario: some fucking nomad with a shitty RPG hits a one in a 1,000 shot AND it's that group of soldiers. Christ.

Bless those cats and their families. Now do what they'd want done and make more SEALs and exact your revenge.

No, those cave dwelling cockroaches had no clue, they see a chopper and they start firing their RPGs and they got lucky. If the Special Ops guys got on the ground, they would've moped the floor with those 8th century throwbacks. At some point The Afghans need to step up and take back their own fucking country.
