PLEASE READ BEFORE VIEWING VIDEO:
YouTube: No rounds penetrated his body armor, and he made it home with no permanent injuries. This happened in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
*READ* From the cameraman:
” I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. the rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn’t start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety.”
“A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless. “

I don’t care about the consequences of people knowing how I feel about this video and the atrocities committed by some Americans. This video highlights how our actions are affecting those around the world and how our soldiers seem to be completely detached from any emotions. I am not in any way blaming this on all military persons, but the government’s decision to go to war with other countries only to put more money into their greedy pockets and drain the already poor countries resources is sickening. Some of those soldiers over there are good men and women, but there are also some who are not and take advantage of the situation that they’ve been put into (I’m referring to the soldier killing 17 civilians and the soldier throwing a puppy).
We don’t have freedom, what we have is the appearance of freedom. Everyday we are being stripped of our rights and being prepped for a government takeover. I’m not saying this will happen now or even in 100 years, but the way we are handling ourselves as a country is not the America I had read so much about, as a child. The price of gas is going up, foreclosures and bank owned properties are almost all that’s left in the real estate market, we could be arrested if the government has “probable cause” and never have to be tried by a jury and held for as long as they insist, and most recently, Obama signed a bill that stated his administration could take control of our food, energy, water, etc.
This video highlights many things that we may have known, may have not wanted to know, or were too unaware to know, but either way, this is the truth. People see America in a way that we cannot. Our media is controlled and we are only shown so much (freedom?) and able to form unintelligent decisions. I am heartbroken at knowing the state of our country, economy and reputation. Is this the American Dream?

The fact that these rapes are occurring within the military is shocking enough, but to know that only 2% result in convictions is absolutely disgusting. People do rape people and although we can’t necessarily stop that behavior, we should at least be punishing these individuals for the horrendous acts they’ve committed. You fight for this country, yet you condemn those within it as well as strip them of their freedoms. The military is supposed to be a place where you’re only fear comes from the battlefield, not the people who fight alongside you.
According to the Department of Defense, around 19,000 military men and women were assaulted in the year 2010 alone. Of that number, about 20% are servicewomen, while another 1% are servicemen. Sadly, this totals roughly 500,000 soldiers that have been sexually assaulted while serving in the military.
From this, I could assume that raping individuals or molesting people in the armed forces is okay in their eyes, but simply being gay is not. This seems rather unjust and corrupt for an American Organization. If we wanted to protect our troops and America, for that matter, we should be prosecuting those who take from others what they want without permission and allow those who are homosexual to serve without discrimination. Luckily, thanks to President Obama as well as others, one of these problems has been addressed.
Unfortunately, the issue of molestation and rape is still one that needs some attention drawn to it.
There is much more to be said on this topic, but hopefully this film will spread the word and help crack down on the unfair advantages that many higher-ups have in our military. Please share this with anyone and everyone so you can help be a part of the awareness. The only thing that keeps things from changing is not being aware. Don’t let our military be another example of how ignorance allowed people to be taken advantage of.

Kim Jong Il, supreme leader of North Korea, died Saturday of an apparent heart attack during a train ride, state television reported Monday. He was 69, according to official sources. Kim, known in his homeland as “The Lodestar of the 21st Century” and by more than 2,000 other titles, is reported to have had a history of serious ailments, including diabetes, stroke and pancreatic cancer. He may have been on dialysis at the time of his death. In North Korea, he was considered a “contemporary god.”
Kim formally assumed power over the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as North Korea is formally known, in October 1997 by becoming General Secretary of the Korean Workers’ Party. His elevation to supreme leader, a little over three years after the death of father Kim Il Sung, was the first dynastic transfer of power in a communist-bloc state. The younger Kim also ruled the nation as Chairman of the National Defense Commission, the highest state institution in North Korea. His father, whose embalmed body is on display in Pyongyang, remains the country’s president.
It’s nice to see a man like Jong Il pass away after the many years of famine and poverty that he forced upon the people of North Korea. He was a dictator who enjoyed living lavishly, while draining the resources of his country for building a more militant regime focused on nuclear weaponry.
Kim spent a reported 25 percent of his country’s budget on Korea’s nuclear military and ambitions while his people were starving. He showed no apparent remorse for anything.
Today is a good day, although we still have to see what’s next for North Korea. That alone, is a terrifying idea.
