As the Danger Room stated, this is a rare video of the preparations and eventual attack that the Taliban released of an attack on the FOB in Khost Province, Afghanistan on June 1, 2012.
I have really struggled over the last day or two if I was going to write about this and re-post it here. The last thing I want to do is spread their I/O message, but then I also realized it is important for the American people to see what we are up against over there. These are not a bunch of lice-filled beard, cave-dwellings idiots. These guys train, rehearse, plan contingencies, and then execute a mission not much different than we do. As you will see in this video, they even have a sand-table and perform what we call in the army a ROC-Drill.
These are not people that are going to leave before December 31, 2014 or just lay down their weapons and join the Afghan Government, so if anyone thinks otherwise they are ignorant.
Either we execute this war properly and with extreme prejudice to kill these bastards and win or we quit and leave now.
