Bring a 7.62x39mm instead. Greater availability of ammunition.

I don't think people in the US should be allowed to have guns.

No issues... but, I think perhaps you meant castration?

I didn't know about the other 2 million. That gets me off the fence. Let's get a SummitPost possie together and go get killed.


Yes, you could always pretend to be there in order to climb some Afghan mountain (there got to be some unclimbed peaks left there). An ice ace can probably be as good as a sword!

I Googled images for 'Rambo', didn't like any of them, then tried 'mountain warrior' since this is really in the mountains, not the jungle at all.

This is what I got... don't know why... decided to post it anyway. Maybe she's trying to kill Bin Laden too???

same story played over and over across all recorded history: foreign military will not accomplish anything in a country without the support of the locals (with the exception of genocide, the reason Saddam was successful and we weren't...er, uh, aren't...and he was a local....)

i hope something good comes out of that situation.

The US military is designed and equipped for war with the Soviet Union.

The Soviet Union disappeared 20 years ago.

Do the math.
