    I thought this was interesting. The first part shows the question posed to American soldiers in the field, the second part shows the question posed to Afghan locals, 10 years after the attack and invasion



    On the US side, the soldiers are aged around 20s-30s, meaning most of them were teenagers when 9/11 happened. This is apparent later in the clip when one of the local Afghan elders claims no Afghan could pull off the attacks and that they didn't come from Afghanistan. I was watching that thinking this guy (a LT) had the perfect opportunity to tell him the majority of the attackers came from Saudi Arabia, including Osama Bin Laden, but instead he said "Yeah, I believe they came from Yemen"!

    They asked a bunch of locals if they'd ever heard of 9/11, only one guy had ever heard of the events..

    So the guys doing the fighting don't understand the reasons why, and the guys fighting against us don't understand the reasons why..

    I believe the Vietnam vets had a word for that type of situation: FUBAR

    For the record, FUBAR goes back to WWII.

    The biggest problem is the US soldiers are blaming the Taliban who had no part whatsoever.

    They made a big show of welcoming Bin Laden to stay in their country. That was apparently enough.

    Regarding our soldiers;
    No one bothers with long reads anymore; they get their history lessons from Faux Spews and the Armed Forces Network.

    The average millennial's attention span has been measured at 8 seconds; by way of comparison, goldfish can manage 9 seconds.

    Thanks, Interwebs!

    Regarding the guys fighting against America have seen their friends, families and innocent civilians murdered without cause or warning by robots in the sky. THEIR motivations are clear enough.

    Hardly. I'm rather enjoying the ongoing skewering of your complete lack of anything substantive to say.

    Keep sniffing, Stinkydigit.

    You're utterly incapable of thinking about what happened after that, aren't you, Stinkydigit?

    Stuck on just one statistic that's been rendered completely irrelevant.

    You can't even comment on the thread topic in your headlong obsession to defend a failed candidate...

    Shillary voted for both the War on Iraq and Afghanistan, just as she was instructed to by her corporate minders.

    They didn't have time to even figure out what was going on it takes a good week or more to get word to your country men by camel. Given a chance they may have done the right thing and allowed us to take the Saudi Arabian but he was to be brought in dead not alive as he would have talked.

    The Saudi Arabian government actually funded 9/11 it was clearly an inside job.
