    Could be a joint effort, the only fly in that ointment would be the Pakis have little, if any, concern about the Taliban in Afghanistan as they have harbored and turned a blind eye to both the Tallys and the al-Queeras- until they attack the Paki power structure.

    There is a huge difference between knowing the basics and performing them flawlessly in the dark under fire. These days calls for supports are digital with a format displayed and numbers punched in through a keyboard with the 'operators', gone are the days of vocal calls for support. It is sadly easy enough to forget where you are in the sequence and punch in the incorrect data at the prompt.

    Will be interesting to learn more, but in the end 5 guys died in a friendly fire incident.

    Oh yeah, is that why the MS is the one out on the J.O.B. for a change? I still have a couple of questions of them saying NATO when they Knew it was a region we were working out of. But then as J5 pointed out it's the MS Media reporting now.

    Now why would you say they wouldn't be concerned about those Taliban on the Border who work with the Haqqani network. Which has been documented over and over again?

    Do you think with them trying to Snatch an Airport in Pakistan and the Pakistans saying they took out 9 hideouts all along the Southern Border.....Means they just stayed on the borderline?


    Karachi airport briefly suspended all flights in and out of the sprawling city of 18 million were suspended, an official said, but most flights were restored by 0930 GMT. Sri Lankan Airlines cancelled a Karachi-bound flight with 207 passengers onboard after the latest attack.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Pakistani fighter jets bombed Taliban positions on the Afghan border.

    "Nine terrorist hideouts were destroyed by early morning military air strikes near the Pakistan-Afghan border," the army's press wing said, adding that 25 militants were killed....snip~

    Do you think with AQ in Iraq today taking over the Northern Capital of Iraq and now has access and control of Mosul International Airport, and that the MS Media reporting all this now. Will means something to BO and his Administration with their Foreign Policy.

    So the Taliban in Pakistan has gone after an Airport and now this. It does bring up some very interesting points, doesn't it?

    Your shorthand is a bit difficult to follow, it is like you type half of what you are trying to say... or you have a very short attention span compared to when we had our first talks...

    Not sure why you comment on the MS (mainstream media????), as for NATO the USofA troops are there as part of a NATO contingent- not sure why this puzzles you. (if it helps ABC referred to the dead soldiers as US Troops, later Special operations soldiers.

    Re-read what I said about the Pakis and Taliban on the border... Pakistan has harbored al-Queera and Tally wackers for decades, Osama hid in Pakistan, Bergdahl was hidden in Pakistan. The Terrorists still have training camps in the Northern Territories- what I said is the Pakis have so little concern about joint missions as controlling the factions that directly attack the Pakistan Government (like the airport attack)

    Sure the Spec Op guys could have been attempting to work with the Paki forces- and the Pakis did just use airstrikes - are you hinting the Pakis hit US forces and it wasn't a B-1 bomber? You dance a lot and ask a lot of vague questions....

    Mosul is incredible topic drift, again not sure what you are trying to claim... you ask a series of questions but seem distracted by something that prevents you from making any sort of point or much sense.

Since the Taliban has refused to negotiate with us at all, why push the envelope by testing them?

    Greetings, Pero.
    Civilians, heck if I know. You asking the wrong man again, 20 years of active duty, 26 more working for the army as a DA civilian and I am supposed to know what civilians think. Thatís my disclaimer. Personally I think any civilian that would go visit or take a vacation in Afghanistan is an idiot with no common sense. The same for going to North Korea and Iran, a few countries in Africa etc.

    I donít know about the Obama State Department, but there used to be a list of countries on back of the front pages that said something like, ďThis passport is not valid for travel to: List of countries and after the last country it said, The U.S. government will be unable to help anyone traveling to the above listed countries.Ē I had to turn in my passport when I retired 2 years ago, so I donít know the exact saying.

    I think any civilian who travels to those places are just plain crazy and since they did so against the advice of the U.S. government, I would say tough ****ski.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nah its been so long, your forgot where your had your first misunderstanding and corrections.

    Over the MS media......that must be you. Since you knew they really weren't up on reporting the war before. That was common knowleged amongst the general public so I doubt you really missed it.

    No I am not even hinting anything you are talking about.....as like most of the time you can't keep up with any material presented.

    As to Mosul.....Talk with that MS media you know about, that has reported on who just took Mosul. You might then know what you are talking about for a change. Just sayin!

    No, it looks like one of those things you hang above a baby's cradle. Mobile?

    Ahhhh CON babble, NOW I get it!!!!!

    You are streaming typical CON crap without any real point, just random CON trite expressions and little attempt to do more than Navy Pride this... 'Common knowleged' (sic) instead of facts...

    You present no material but a stream of semi-conscious babble...

    MS media is reporting a FACTION of al-Queera is behind the new attacks, Sunni backed terrorists. They call themselves a splinter group with 'of the Levant' or some such.

    But still just rambling bits with no coherent thread to follow...
