really? asking if it's dangerous? you're in the middle of a goddamn warzone with soldiers on an offensive, of course his job is dangerous

I hope Iraq finds peace soon. I hope these men are honored by people for what they did by granting them peace. I think that country has seen more war then any other nation in the last 4 decades. Its time for lasting peace without a religious divide.

Why not talk about the suffering of civilians, such as Aleppo, and that terrorists are the good guys



Same freaking leftist report(s) by this reporter just like that in Vietnam war. Pro-Enemy, Anti-coalitions. That way, they have news to report forever. Sick !

Why does the .50 cal ammo box on the M1 Abrams(tank) have korean writing on it?
Are the koreans involved with supplying them? Cause that kinda doesn't make any sense

Criminal family Bush invaded Iraq and said to people : now you must buy my materials.

it was nice to see the Shia flag on one of the tanks. How does the Iraqi Army plan to win over the hearts of the majority Sunni population in Mosul? Assuming they plan to.
