Afghanistan vs USA - Page 61

I served in Afghanistan 2009-2010. I was stationed at COP Michigan. Our AO(Area of operation) was the Pech river valley, Korengal valley, and the Shiriak valley. I've been blown up 3 times (That I count, by the VA's set. Of blown up it's much higher… but their definition is ridiculous.) in an MRAP roll over, and fell of a mountin. We were shot at daily where we took small arms, sniper fire, rpgs, mortars, and dishka fire. We did attempt to help the population while we were there. We gave them money, supplies, funded schools, funded wells and livestock, all trying to improve their standard of living. To understand my view point on this subject, now that you have my background, you need to see it as I see it. If you offered cloths they would return them and ask for a diffrent color and throw them back and possibly spit on them first. When we went to help repair a house after someone complained it got caught in the ceasefire, we got there and the roof was blown in and initially we apologised. Then we go inside and find shells littering the ground where someone was clearly firing out the window, and a weapons cache in a "Shed"(Leanto pile of wood) behind the house. Kids would throw rocks which eventually became grenades. When you see them on tv giving a thumbs up next to soldiers to the camera guy… that's their equivalent of a middle finger over here. The one village elder that tried to pass us information on the local guerilla leaders I saw hanging in a tree later that day right before we were ambushed. Anytime we got ambushed or were about to be attacked the locals were always mysteriously absent before it happened. When an ied went off in a well we funded, someone had to have seen them building it in and didn't warn us. Then they turn around and ask to have it rebuilt. I understand that they could fall under attack if they didn't shoot when told to shoot and could be tortured if they refused, or worse. I understand that they don't have television or an education to give them a larger scale of the world then between this mountain and the next. However when it seems like they willingly turn a blind eye and spit on our help if it's not exactly the way they want it when they want it, and they seem to want to keep things the way they are because some far off leaders who run the country don't directly affect them. I say let them keep doing what they were doing before we went to that s#!% hole… sorry. To most of them, they view us as they viewed the Russians when they were there. As heathen invaders trying to take over their country. Never mind whether or not that is actually the case, that seems to be the general belief. The Pakistani soldiers came over just to get a few shots in at us, then fled safely back across the border. (Sorry written on a phone).

U.S. Gives Humvees to Afghan army and then blows them up when they fall into Taliban hands. The 40 Humvees were destroyed in U.S. Airstrikes since January 2015, shortly after U.S. Combat forces left Afghanistan and local forces took the lead in combating the Taliban and other insurgent groups.
