    So many boys who were at the top of their game.
    There are some sad families tonight.
    I agree, and my question is why so many on one chopper?

    This is because we went to play at war 10 years ago with an enemy who will never give up unless they're dead. Oh they may claim they'll negotiate, blah, blah, blah, bovine scatology.

    If you go to war you need to have a clear understanding what it takes to win straight up, no excuses, no half measures or BS.

    I feel awful for the families of those who died needlessly in the choppe crash and since this whole thing started, including in Iraq.

    May they all find peace on the otherside.

    More bad news on this from AP. This chopper was carrying SEAL Team Six who in my mind should not have been sent back because they were no doubt targeted.

    This really sucks.

    Well said councilman, I completely agree with you.

    Chinook is a big ass chopper.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    absolutely it is, I used to ride on the USMC equivalent or close to it CH-53 sea stallion, although in a combat zone and in regards to spec. ops, my orders would be not 25 on one chopper but only 10 per chopper, use three helo's. BTW the Chinooks need to be retired.

    This is utterly heartbreaking. To lose so many of our heroes all at once, my god 31 of them... it's a national tragedy. When I heard the news, I actually fought off tears. These brave men of SEAL Team 6 took out America's most hated enemy. We cheered them, showered them with praise. Now some or all of them are dead, and it makes my heart literally ache with sadness.

    My condolences to their families, and to the nation which they so valiantly served. The made the ultimate sacrifice. Our country has suffered a great loss.

    And for those of you, you know who you are, who couldn't be bothered for two seconds to memorialize, show sadness for this horrific loss and respect for those brave men who died because you didn't want to waste a single moment of your precious time when you'd rather be exploiting the tragedy for your own political agendas, shame on you and **** the hell off.

    I fly fixed-wing, I think all helicopters should be retired. Too low, too slow, too much mechanical crap going on.

    I hope they obliterated the bastards who took the shot.
