150 TIME MORE LIKELY TO BE MURDERED


Lunar Spook reports - Hey Sean, I was reading through UNCLASSIFIED research conducted on the phenomenon of Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF)-committed fratricide-murder of US Soldiers and found this:

". . . during the last six months (NOV2010-APR2011) Westerners stationed within Afghanistan's N2KL region (Nangahar, Nuristan, Kunar and Laghman provinces) who regularly interact and/or train with ANSFs have been OVER 150 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE MURDERED by an ANSF member than a US police officer is to be murdered in the line of duty by ANY perpetrator; this excludes the additional risk associated with regular combat for these coalition members."

The researcher looked into the root cause of these killings. His findings support his original hypothesis - culture is the primary flash point, not "sleeper cells" and insurgent double agents" as many have claimed, instead Afghans report US Advisors, largely non-SOF, have offended them greatly in many ways, but mostly areas concerning culture, religion and acceptable societal behavior.

Here's an interesting research paper if you have the time or interest to read.

  1. Why am I not surprised. Also, our troops aren't angels, but they shouldn't be shot for it!

    Screw this hellhole. Either conquer, subjugate, and civilize these cavemen, or GTFO. Our current half-ass policy is messed up.
