    Grn on Blue attack kills Bronze Star Purp Hrt recipient

    Fucking muslim scum can never be trusted.


    The Department of Defense announced that Corporal Joseph Maciel was killed Saturday while involved in operations supporting Operation Freedomís Sentinel;


    Cpl. Joseph Maciel of South Gate, California, died July 7, 2018, in Tarin Kowt District, Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan from wounds sustained during an apparent insider attack. The incident is under investigation.

    Maciel was assigned to 1st Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Georgia. Task Force 1-28 Infantry is currently deployed in support of the 1st Security Force Assistance Brigade.


    From Stars & Stripes;


    Macielís decorations include the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart.

    The incident is under investigation, officials said. Macielís death marks the third U.S. fatality in Afghanistan this year.

    The 1st SFAB arrived in Afghanistan earlier this year to advise Afghan forces below the corps level as part of the Trump administrationís strategy for ending the longest war in U.S. history. Their work puts them closer to the front lines than most U.S. troops have been in years, which has sparked concern that more U.S. causalities could result.

    I would guess that they trusted someone that they shouldn't have. They probably let them have access to where he was.

    I'm guessing his parents would like a clear explanation.

    Green on Blue means killed by the indigenous troops we trust, train and arm. Blue on Blue would be what happened to Pat Tilman. Green on Green would mean we got smart and cleared out so they can go back to their tribal caveman ways of killing each other.

    All this b.s. of trying to make the same mistake we made in Vietnam.

    Trying to train a force who does not like us and does not want to fight the enemy.

    What needs to be done is to let the Afghanis get back to their villages and not allow them to mingle or be around U.S. Forces. They are basically worhless. They will never be able to defend afghanistan so it is a waste of resources to begin with not even to mention the danger they pose to our troops.

    Trump needs to take a hard look at the afghani war. I am afraid he is getting some bad advice. If we want to make sure they never are a staging area for an attack on America we need to concentrate on how to completely wipe out the Taliban. You cannot do that by just fighting in Afghanistan. We have to go into the tribal lands in Pakistan and wipe our their bases and forces there. As long as they are allow a sanctuary in Pakistan they will continue to infltrate into Afghanistan.
