Ho Ho, Ha Ha, He He We Pay The Taliban Not to Kill Us Now So They Kill Us Latter

What a crock of shit my fellow Americans, what a crock.

Naw, not the fact that we pay the Taliban not to attack our supply convoys. No not that. That should have been expected as a normal operational procedure in an Insurgent based war.

No my dear friends, not that.

The crock of shit is that you didn't know that. The crock of shit is that the news media is surprised by this. The crock of shit is that we are outraged by it.

I guess those 50,000 dead boys and 125,000 maimed and wounded warriors from Vietnam really did die for nothing. We didn't learn shit from all that.

When I was liaison to the Military Intelligence at Phuoc Vinh, RVN we were paying the Viet Cong (VC) a "Tax" not to attack the base when the Screaming Eagles were there. The deal was we paid the Cong and then we were free to attack the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) farther to the North. When the First Air Cav took over the base they came under fire every day and night cause they wouldn't pay the tax.

We paid Sears U.S. tax payers money for every rubber tree we destroyed in the Min Than and Micheline rubber plantations in the First Infantry's area of operation. Then they used the money to pay the Viet Cong and the NVA not to hide in the plantations or engage in attacks there.

The contractor building bridges on highway 13 from Saigon to Lai Khe, RVN paid the VC to not attack the people building the bridges.

Oh, hell people we even paid Shell Oil Corporation when ever we hit one of their ship or facilities in Hanoi or Haiphong.

These are all things I personally knew first or second hand and used in briefings to the Commanding General of the 1st Infantry or his SSO. Yes, we had a daily rubber tree destroyed report. It was briefed right along with the KIA numbers.

So why should you be "Surprised" that we paid the Taliban $6 million last year not to shoot at our trucks.

Jeez people, did we not learn anything from Nam. Of course not.

I am exceedingly tired of all these dumb shits ignoring our immediate prior war experiences as they screw up again repeating the same things over and over again.

(Say, to my Aussie Vet Nam Vet Friends, why you don't tell that old fart Rupert Murdoch to stop messing with our Wars. Next thing you know he'll have you in another one with his lies.)
