    I`m proud to say that I build drones for a living. As you can see, the more they fly, the fewer lives are lost.

    MRAP`s are not the only armored vehicles. The only people who`d understand the significance of the MRAP number`s were those who`ve actually driven/seen one. Cougar`s are reasonable low cost (In comparison to existing alternatives), and VERY well designed. I was in one when we ran over an efp-IED, and it felt great to be able to walk away from that experience without a scratch on me.

    Yeah, I`ll be the troll to say it. In the case of Iraq, we should never have been there in f*cking first place. WMDs my ass.

    Mark my words, history will look back on this and call it the greatest ever f*ck-up the US (and its Allies, I include myself as a Brit) ever made.

    the neocons that have provocate the war on Iraq and wanted to cleanse the middle east of roque states have failed at a terrible cost, and btw are not being held for accountable, Iraq is now a ruined state closer to Iran than washington, in Afghanistan the Talibans still rule, Pakistan is now a diminished and dangerous nuclear state.
    Bin laden`s dead but the terrorists are all over northern Africa, Yemen, Nigeria ,etc. On the other hand torture has been legalized, targeted assassination are now commun with random kidnapping and our liberties shaken down for the purpose of security.
    Thank you all(the evil ones and the bad ones) and well done. I hope you all drop dead.
