Fact Versus This Fiction
10 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Same thing happened at Afghanistan to Doctors Without Borders, American Red Cross, USAID Workers.

They did not even bother to kidnap them they raped them (including the men) and then executed them, usually letting the Afghan Drivers escape to spread the news.

No matter how many times we told the American Red Cross to paint over the "Crusader's Crosses" with Red Crescents, nope. So the Muslims used the Red Cross as a Target to line up the sights of their RPG-7s.

So many times beyond count we told the International News Reporters, Media, International Aid Workers, the Muslims don't care what you think or what your emotions are, You Violated their Laws, Women Must Cover Their Hair Completely, absolutely no hair on their heads showing, especially if you are a blonde (that they will see easily in any crowd). The Hadith Law allows any Muslim to apprehend any Woman, and start Stoning her to Death or the least being a whipping in Public with a cane (flexible stick).

A U.S. Army Special Forces Captain is usually in Command of a Detachment not a Group, this Detachment is not like a U.S. Army Special Forces Detachment and includes Women Operators, and Special Warfare Operators from other Branches and even Other Nations Special Warfare, usually a Detachment of a 1 or more ODAs and a ODB at U.S.A.F. Incirlik Turkey not just 5 or 6 Team Members, as part of a Larger Independent U.S. Military Joint Special Operations Task Force. In hostage and abduction situations Director Office of the Director for National Intelligence (ODNI) will immediately brief the U.S. President.

On purpose we NEVER use anybody that looks like Captain Adam Dalton, Unless their hair had been dyed black or dark brown, and their skin dyed light brown to medium brown. Wearing the wrong color shemagh is the easiest way to be identified as an American especially when worn like an American scarf around the neck "like a rag" (an insult to Arabic Tribes) instead of as a shemgah (that most Americans do not know how to properly do). Improper wear of a Shemagh is as easily detected as like everybody wearing a baseball cap correctly and only you wearing a baseball cap of a different color on backwards.

Burkhas, our women wear Burkhas, as by Hadith Law, Women must have a Male "Guardian", this allows us to be the Armed Guardian. Many of the Women of Rich Influential Families wearing Burkhas may have many Guardians as a Status Symbol, this allows us to have many of Us as her Armed Guardians. Our women wearing Burkhas are carrying lots of things under their Burkhas including wearing a Bulletproof Vest, ammunition, sometimes Scorpion Full Auto Submachine Pistols, lots of ammunition and handgrenades.

Height, most are under 6 feet tall. This is why Yemenis Osama Bin Laden stuck out like a sore thumb at over 6 feet tall, 6 feet 5 to 6 inches. Think about a Large Tree sticking up in the middle of a field of grass.

Weapons, because of the range of the average AK-47 being 800 meters, the usual weapons used are M110s or M25s, not short range Jungle Warfare M16s (350 meters) or M4s (250 meters). Most real snipers will never even touch a M16, M4, as if jinx, so nope "Sniper" Sergeant Jasmine "Jaz" Khan carrying a M4.

Use of Americans of African Ancestry even at U.S. AFRICOM, does not happen, due to the ingrained since birth different attitudes, physical things like even walking, and movements betray them as Americans, this is especially true at U.S. Military Joint Special Operations at U.S. AFRICOM (Africa), with the local Africans readily detecting Americans of African Ancestry.

Shooting somebody thru automotive glass with a 5.56mm M4, sorry, the automotive glass especially the non U.S. Specification type used at Most Other Nations, deflects the small caliber 5.56mm too much, she would have aimed for head shot, the glass would have deflected the 5.56mm enough to hit their Agent driving the pickup truck probably in the upper body or even the head.

Because of so many U.S. Embargoes, Sanctions, the use of American Vehicles is near Zero as also no Repair Parts, The most common vehicles are Toyota (Hilux Pickups, SUVs), Mercedes (few), British Range Rovers (some), Peugots (lots). Even GM Opel (Germany), GM AG (Germany) are rare also because of Embargoes and Sanctions. Most are Diesels, not gasoline, and also use homemade Bio Diesel.

They would not have moved her (Doctor) anywhere without a head covering of some kind, especially a Kafir (Derogatory word for an Unbeliever). Hadith as Islamic Law.

Entering the Hospital Women Never Speak to Men, especially Holy Warriors of Islam (in this case Al Nusra Front aka Al Quada Syria (AQY), just like the "Islamic Police" the Afghan Taliban) that Enforce those Muslim Laws.

We don't say "50 cal" we say "12-7" (12.7mm machinegun).

Extraction, after the Previous Failed and Recent Hostage Rescue Attempt at Syria, U.S. Ally Turkey's Muslim Government stopped the U.S. Military Use of Helicopters from U.S.A.F. Incrilk Turkey.

Tattoos, nope, not allowed, no identifying markings, most U.S. Army Rangers (with Ranger Battalion Tattoos), U.S.N. S.E.A.L.s (Eagle and Trident tattoos), all had their Tattoos painfully removed.

Families, nope, most U.S. Military Special Warfare Forces no longer have "Families", after so many Deployments that can be Years Each, most remained Single, Permanently "Separated" or ended up Divorced (not on good terms), and loss of Child Custody. Spending 90 percent of time Training 5 percent Administrative time, 5 percent "Personal time" during the Training Cycle, Training Cycles are continuous and only stopped for Missions.

"Old" Men and "Old" Women, by the time most are fully qualified, most are age 35 to late 40s. 6 years minimum Active Duty U.S. Military Service before consideration.
