He’s currently working security in Baghdad, assumable he’ll be doing the same in Afghanistan.
I just wonder if he’s taking his dog with him, seemed like he just got the guy broke in good.

Karzai calls for NATO to leave villages; Taliban scrap talks

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai called for NATO troops to leave Afghan villages after 16 civilians died in a shooting rampage by a U.S. soldier, underscoring Afghan fury over the massacre and clouding U.S. exit plans.
In a near-simultaneous statement, the Taliban said they were suspending nascent peace talks with the United States seen as a strong chance of ending the country's decade-long war, blaming "shaky, erratic and vague" U.S. statements.
Karzai, in a statement from his office after meeting U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, said as a result of the weekend massacre, "international security forces have to be taken out of Afghan village outposts and return to (larger) bases".
The soldier accused of carrying out the shooting was based at a small special forces compound similar to others around the country which underpin NATO's counter-insurgency strategy ahead of a 2014 deadline for most Western combat forces to pull out.
Karzai said the incident had harmed relations between Afghanistan and the United States and said "all efforts have to be done to avoid such incident in the future", warning it also had hurt the trust Afghans had in foreign forces.

That's just that punk Karzai talking shit in order to keep the cave dwelling kiddie rapists happy....He's always running off at the mouth...Once the coalition is gone he's a dead man or living somewhere in exile spending the US tax payers money...

Should have told him along time ago....we put you in office, we can take you out.

Iraqi's are the same way....I can't stand these people, but I love contracting....this new gig, 2yrs and I'm done....well, maybe

Since I’ve got you on hand maybe you can answer a question for me.
I’ve heard from a couple of friends now that all the Taliban has to do is shoot a couple of shots then duck and wait because the Afghani “security forces” will unload their weapons then be too busy getting high to reload and fight. So all they have to do is wait until the first volley is spent then walk right up on them.
Are the Iraqis that bad?

Yeah, the Iraqi's are even worse with the exception of getting high...The difference in the drug culture in Iraq vs. Astan is huge....


A few years ago I was reading an article written by a Marine Infantry Capt. who'd done 2 tours in Iraq and was now in Astan. And he stated, in Iraq it was mainly a hit and run, IED/VBED attack and then a quick ambush and the insurgents would disappear.

In Astan they would make contact with the Taliban at roughly squad strenght...in a short amount of time the Marines would be fighting a company sized element. Lot's of good reading out there on Astan & the Taliban.
