Those who criticize don't know what it means to fight, what it means to serve, what it means to protect.  To the eyes of a civilian, this is just some war over resources.  In reality, it's far from the truth.  Men and women alike who fight abroad see the evils that our foe has committed upon those who live in the Middle East, now the home to dozens of 'hot spots'.  Children are being slaughtered and forced to fight for a cause that, to them, is just, but, in truth, is not.  Justice needs to be brought to a land where there is no such thing as peace, no such thing as love, no such thing as unity. 

If only people actually knew what they fight for, what we fight for, then they would understand.  Hundreds of thousands of people died since 9/11, American, Middle Eastern, European, etc.  Though the fighting still continues, even to this day, our job is not done.  Peace must be restored to the Middle East in order to restore peace in the world.  But, until that day comes, peace will be fought for.

funny you're denying it being a war about resources. i'm german and our former president, horst köhler, actually admitted that germany has economic interests in afghanistan. that led to him stepping back from his presidential position. 

let's also talk about the opium poppies that are so beautifully depicted in this picture and just show the contradicting motives of this war. 

shall we continue and move forward in time? have you guys found the weapons of mass destruction in iraq that were one of the initial reasons to start a war against iraq? 

so, let's talk about freedom and justice one more time and who you think you are to define what justice actually means and what right you have to invade foreign countries for reasons that you made up in the first place?

We're a goddamn superpower whereas your country has been moving toward military irrelevance for the past two decades.

yes but that's actually a good thing. no one needs the military. there are no threats. your government is making this shit up. it's proven that there never where weapons of mass destruction that were reason no.1 for the war in iraq. that's a fact. it's proven. this war is based on lies. if the iraq war is based on lies, how much truth are behind the motives for the war in afghanistan? i mean, inside job conspiracy and stuff. some weird stuff went down on september 11. you can't deny this either. it's a sad day because so many innocent people died but i believe they were mere collateral damage than victims of a terrorist attack. i don't believe a word of what the government told you was actually happening and i'm not alone either. there are a lot of people that believe it was an inside job. it doesn't matter though. what matters is what happened after this. us invaded afghanistan and us invaded iraq, even though iraq had nothing to do with afghanistan and there weren't weapons of mass destruction. instead there were natural resources. there's lithium and oil, that's what. so, superpower your ass. rome was a superpower, too, but we all know what happened to it.

The problem with Europeans such as yourself is that you believe that because you have been able to avoid another major world war fought on your continent for the past 70 years, Military power is now irrelevant in global politics.  Of course, European peace has only been achieved through the maintenance of strong military alliances with outside powers, and throughout the last century it was outside powers, such as the USSR or the US that ultimately brought a measure of peace and stability to Europe.  Europeans like you don't see the need for a strong military because whenever you get into trouble your strategy is either to appease the aggressor, or come whining to the U.S. for help.  The U.S., like any nation, has the right to secure its economic interests and that may or may not involve military intervention in such countries as Afghanistan or Iraq.  I would like to add at this point that I didn't actually support the invasion of Iraq and I also believe that had the campaign in Afghanistan been prosecuted in a more competent way, we could have been out of there in the space of a year or two.  Of course we didn't invade either country for "freedom", we went in because we, unlike you, actually have ability and wherewithal to protect our interests, whether or not we actually have interests in a certain country, which again, I admit is debatable when talking about A-Stan or Iraq.  And BTW, we're protecting your interests as well, due to the fact that we are the only power with the ability to ensure some sort of stability in the Middle East.  You cannot, and therefore your country, like most industrialized western countries, must rely on a global military political and economic order decided largely by the United States.  Germany more than almost any country has benefited from this geopolitical order, something which is obviously lost on most of you.  Also, the United States is less than 3 centuries old, so any comparison to Rome must focus on its early republican period, not its late imperial period.

In other words, grow up!

"we went in because we, unlike you, actually have ability and wherewithal to protect our interests"

you went in because of government lies. these are proven facts that you cannot deny. if you argument otherwise you are just 
delusional.

i don't really want to go into economics, because i actually have a completely different view about value than most people. easy put, i'm not a capitalist. but you're calling usa a global power?! why is it that the us $ is worth less than pound and less than euro? you have been a global power for the longest time but you wasted too much time and money on orchestrated wars and now this is slowly but steadily getting back to you. i really hope that usa does a different approach. we don't needs wars in 2015, even if you believe otherwise. we are evolved human beings. i think most of us citizens are evolved human beings. there just are a few with power that seem to not be evolved. they have different values than everybody else. they want force and control. but you don't need to be controlled. you can think for yourself. you don't need other to think for you.

The fact that you think the Euro being worth more than the U.S.D. makes the U.S. a minor power shows that you have absolutely no understanding of basic economics.  The fact that you are unwilling to accept that wars still happen and are a part of Human nature, shows how incredibly naive you are.

Nice. Though everyone is wrong. Not M16 or M4. Those are HK416, currently in the running to replace the AR15 family for the U.S. Army. So it would be in use in 2025.

Now the Mech in the background with the CROW system and the Xbox controller was a cool add.

Didn't see to many poppy fields where I was, They replaced it all with corn.
