RIP Warriors.

RIP, young brothers.

There are no words to describe my anger and frustration seeing our folks sacrificed for no good reason...

this place is a shithole- it was a shithole for the last 1000 years and will be a shithole for the next 1000 years, no matter how many lives we expend trying to change things there- its just not in the region's DNA...
