“War is hell” – This is what an Estonian soldier says after a firefight with the Taliban in this documentation about NATO forces operating in Afghanistan. The series follows Estonian soldiers as they fight the Taliban on the outskirts of Nadi Ali.
Why am I posting such videos in my blog? Hmm… I think I have enough of Anti-Nato-Hippie–Wierdos. Recently I’ve seen an Anti-Nato-Poster on the street near the office calling for a demonstration or something. I got so angry that I nearly teared it down.
… and btw I think the Mi-24 Hinds nicknamed “flying tank” are scaring the hell out of the Taliban 😀 They have seen them before 😉

Israeli forces are moving in. This conflict is very sad.
It happens before Palestinians could establish their own state. Without real Police, without a Government… how should anyone stop Hamas from firing the fucking Kasam rockets? No way. It’s a tragedy.
The country I come from (Poland) has been in a similar situation in 1981 (of course on a totally different – much bigger scale – but I think basically it’s the same). In 1981 the communist government of Poland had to stop the Solidarity movement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solidarity) somehow before Soviet Russia would move in with military forces. In Prague Soviets moved in with tanks in 1968 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prague_Spring) so everyone has been sure the same thing would happen in Poland. Solidarity wouldn’t stop – it had support by CIA. The Polish government declared martial law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martial_law_in_Poland) and arrested many activists. Soviets didn’t invade Poland in the end and a few years later the Soviet Empire together with all the communist governments in Eastern Europe vanished. My point is that only peace & democracy is a reasonable way out of conflicts.
The situation in Palestine is far more complicated and people are filled with hate, but nevertheless the only way out is peace & democracy!
My thoughts are with the ordinary people in Gaza AND with the poor Israeli Soldiers who are moving into Gaza. The urban warfare down there must be total horror! Trap mines, Terrorists everywhere. Scary! Moving through the dark streets of Gaza is probably the most difficult operation you can imagine. Even with night vision scopes, real time satellite maps, recon drones, direct air support that must be hell.

The siege is over. Terrorists failed. Victory!
Now it truns out Mumbai terrorists used Chechen tactics:
The dimension of this attack is enormous. Seems Commandos in India are doing a good job! Nearly over!
Call me crazy or something but I think we need something like the GDI to fight these bastard terrorists. What we have now is not efficient. Everyone including Russia and the US should work together to fight this threat. So what’s the parallel? Who would be NOD and what’s Tiberium then? NOD is like Al Qaida, Tiberium are Drugs and Kane is Osama. So here we go:
Ok, this looks like a real war to me. Hope India’s military keeps the situation under control. More than 100 people died! EVERYONE needs to work together to fight these international Muslim terrorist bastards! They attacked about 10 targets. This is a war against India and no terrorist attack!
I stumbled over a small news article at Onet.pl (Polands Yahoo-like #1 portal) about a recent US special forces recon operation in Iran:
This happened actually after the election of Obama… so the global “Shadow War” against these fucking Terrorists is still going on. Very good! I hope Omaba will keep the pressure up! I’m against the war in Iraq but 100% convinced that only Special-Ops can stop the global terror and prevent further terrorist attacks.
