[WARNING GRAPHIC COMBAT FOOTAGE] US 101st Airborne Patrol Ambushed By Taliban
At the bottom of this article, I am placing a video of actual graphic combat footage, shot in Afghanistan. Being a veteran myself, it’s difficult to watch this and not get somewhat emotional.
It’s no wonder that some of these fine young men come home and cannot re-adapt to civilian life. To live under the constant fear of death is something that no one should ever have to deal with. This is why the young men in this video (and all veterans for that matter), deserve your respect.
After watching this video…and I think you’ll agree with me, this is why I get so damn angry when I see burger-flippers out in the street protesting for $15.00 an hour. These young men are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and all at the starting rate of pay of $1,599.99 a month.
Fast food workers are demanding $15.00 an hour, in a 40 hour work week, that comes out to $2,400.00 a month. If you divide a soldiers pay (at an hourly rate considering they are on duty 24 hours a day, but just for the sake of argument, I’ll calculate it at a 40 hour work week), that comes out to $9.99 an hour. Doesn’t seem very fair now does it??
So forgive me if I have nothing but disdain for those whiny, bitchy little snowflakes thinking that they somehow deserve $15.00 and hour. They don’t have to worry about getting blown-up, or getting shot in the head. So, the next time you see one of those whiny little snowflakes bitching about how “un-fairly” they’re treated…slap the taste out of their mouth and show them this video.
Here is the description of the video:
“It is not intended to shock or disturb anyone, but to show the reality of war and what our soldiers have gone through, and continue to go through. This video is of an ambush on a US Patrol in the Kunar Province in Afghanistan in 2010. The lead MRAP vehicle is hit by a RPG and one of the soldiers is seriously injured (he ends up losing part of his right arm). That soldier’s name is Troy Walsingham and he is a friend of mine. He now suffers from complications of that injury and also PTSD. In addition the photographer and narrator was James Foley, the American Freelance reporter that was murdered by ISIS. Please keep his family in your prayers also.”
