I have mixed feelings. I cannot get happy about “revenge” when I think they (the Taliban) should have been nailed in the original event. Also, what is the real story here? Was this just a “lucky” shot with an RPG that took out the helo or was it an elaborate set up ambush? If it was a set up, did we get sold out, and by whom?
I am glad they can claim to have nailed the Taliban responsible for this loss of our military & allies....it is some small degree of comfort. However, in a larger sense the ENTIRE Taliban is responsible and they all need to cease to breath. That would make me feel better.
Sorry, but I need to babble further. If F-16s nailed them finally, then why didn’t the “Rangers” engaged in a heavy firefight not call in these initially for support? Why was a team of warriors sent in to reinforce (according to news) instead of using close air support? An RPG cannot take out a fast mover like a F-16. Also, altitude has no effect on the F-16 like it does helos.
All very good questions. I still want to know what happened to our Rangers. Are they dead or alive?
Nope. The story changed. They were not there to rescue Rangers.
All I need to see is the wreckage. Has anyone seen stills/scenes of the wreckage?
