Ft Collins, CO –-( Comments on the murder of our two-star in Afghanistan (at the national ” training academy“) and the serious injury of seventeen others, on 6 Aug 14 2014, all perpetrated by a single VCA (violent criminal actor).

These comments from a veteran of the African Bush Wars of the 1960s and 1970s:

My Directorate Section Chief (also a two-star) always warned us:

‘Any time you’re anywhere in an Ops Area, even within the confines of so-called “safe” places, never be without your rifle, spare magazines, pistol, knife, bush hat, boots, water, emergency medpack, and rat-pack (ration pack)

No matter what anyone else says or does… you do that, without fail!’

I never forgot those words, and that degree of continual, personal readiness saved my life, more than once. I still adhere to that admonition, even today… especially today!”

My comments:

Few details of this most recent wretched attack upon American military personnel have thus-far surfaced. But, we have to ask ourselves:

“How can these kinds of wanton massacres of members of our “unarmed forces” continue to happen so regularly, both in Ops Areas, and on our military bases within CONUS, with nothing ever being done about it?”

Was not a single person there in a sufficient state of personal readiness so as to be able to respond to this attack effectively, and instantly?

That seems to be the incessant issue, and, inexplicably, no corrective action is ever taken; no SOP update is ever even considered, nor is any likely, even now!

We’re hopelessly mired in obsolete doctrine, literally defined by ” political correctness,” which is nothing but forced tyranny upon free speech, a concept worthy only of Communists!

As a civilization, we are in steep decline, and the foregoing is yet another stark indicator!

“One seldom goes wrong when attributing extreme actions to vanity, average ones to habit, and petty ones to fear.” ~ Nietzsche

Chuck, like too many other people who know little about the U.S. Constitution, you are apparently mistaken as to what “freedom of speech” means. The 1st Amendment to the Constitution states the GOVERNMENT shall not infringe upon free speech rights. Unless ammoland is government-owned and I somehow missed that, you have no “free speech” rights on a privately owned website. It’s always funny how people like you claim to be great defenders of the Constitution, yet you don’t even understand very basic aspects of what it does and does not say. So typical. As for using foul words to describe… Read more »


@Ammoland – I fail to see how “…the use of the word “Niger” in almost all instances is in conjunction with hate speech and that does not add any value to the related discussions.” Niger, in any context, refers to a country in Africa. Perhaps you meant the word “nigger” which would, in MOST cases (NOT this one, dontcha think?) would be considered to “…not add any value to the related discussions”? Just pickin’ nits…


Every time someone says something against a minority and uses the word “Nigger” and other things to express themselves and are refused to be printed here, we are being denied our freedom of speech just as a communist country does. I have noticed political correctness on this site just as much as it was coined by Hillary Clinton in the 1990’s.

, Thanks very much for your feedback. As clearly stated in our terms of service we do sensor hate speech. As a private business we have the right to decide what is on our website and the use of the word “Nigger” in almost all instances is in conjunction with hate speech and that does not add any value to the related discussions.


Phil, make sure brain is in gear before engaging typing clutch. Are you too young to remember the Congo wars, Rhodesia, Angola. or were you never taught about them in school? still, your uninformed state should be remedied before you try to comment.


Our troops in these areas must be ready to go and be protected at all times. The coward in the white house and the Muslim loving democrat traitors will not back our troops or act to protect them.


If the order of the day was to be unarmed, why wasn’t the facility swept by security to ferret out any hidden threat?
Whomever was in charge of facility security should be cashiered.


Just so I can remain “politically-incorrect”; how come the Democats and especially Mikey Bloomberg weren’t calling for more “gun control” as a result of this horrific slap in the face from the things we are protecting! Oh, wait a minute; could it be that there would certainly been more deaths because the “bad guy” in this case could have kept on shooting, while the “good guys” had to hold their fire until the “pseudo-background checks” were migrated through the anti-gun establishment! We’re in dire straits if we as a country keep letting our guard down because we believe the one’s… Read more »

Ol' Vet

He’s exactly right. While in the combat area walking around without defense protection is insane. Bet they were instructed by the powers that be NOT to be armed as they didn’t want the Anghans to be “embarrassed” so a General officer is killed and 17 others wounded by one POS that we trained and armed, fed, and clothed. Time to get the hell outa there, and let the kill each other at their discreation.


You lost me on “African Bush Wars”?
Afghanistan is not in Africa. Its in South West Asia.
Check the map.

, re-read the article, the article “the vet is from “African Bush Wars of the 1960s and 1970s” they are not talking about Asia.
