A buddy and I were talking about our "neighborhood" here on the FOB and how safe it is compared to being home in the states. Even though we do have to watch out for rockets and mortars we consider it a pretty safe place. We are all carrying firearms, knives and a variety of other ordinance yet, contrary to the liberal opinion, we are not firing each other up like the wild west. Sure the chances of us getting blown up when we leave the wire goes up, but we decided that the FOB is probably the safest neighborhood we'll ever live in. The people here are certainly more respectable than those in DC.
