    I was sent this short video clip and thought others would appreciate the perspective. In general I do believe we should be helping them to help their self. But...........?? Watch this clip. Very eye opening.

    If it was merely a cultural issue you might be able to fix it.

    Some of us older "grunts" have see this before. I was an advisor to the 52nd ARVN Ranger Bn (not to be mistaken with any of our Rangers from the 75th or any LRRP units). The Afgan legs look like LLDB (Lousy Little Dirty Bugouts). I supose you have to start somewhere. All The Way and Semper Fi to todays Grunts!!! Do the mission and un-ass the LZ.

    The Hash reminds me of the Cambodians in '73. They couldn't get out of their own way.
