    Yes there is. It's everywhere outside of the cushy super fobs where 95% of the military is placed. You're more likely to be hit by a car on one of those fobs than a bullet or mortar round, and there are US cities more dangerous than them.

    Bet I can show those places have been hit from the inside when I get home?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I believe I linked earlier some discussion about that.

    Ok? So 1 in 10,000 soldiers died there. It doesn't prove ****. You're trying to compare it to infantry platoons who literally have 50+% casualties. Fact is, 95% of the military who deploy live on a super fob with pool halls and burger kings.

    What do you have against pool halls and burger kings?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    LOL, nothing, it was fun passing through, getting to play some pool and get fat on whoppers. The point is, 99% of my deployment was eating ****ing MREs and ****ty ass food from an MKT and living in the dirt. Comparing all deployed soldiers to combat arms doesn't represent reality in the slightest.

    More than that, and the back lines isn't just there.

    No one said I can't. I said I liked something earlier, and can do more when I get home. Not a problem.
