3 Green Berets killed in Jordan


First saw this on Yahoo.


Searched Fox News.

Judging by the photo on CNN and the description on Fox They were 10TH Group attached to 5TH Group.

RIP Brother and prayers for your families. Always hurts my soul.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

Thanks for the update. I was afraid this was a new incident until reading the Yahoo link.

And Fuck Jordan.....

Speaking at an event in Washington DC earlier Tuesday, family members of the three murdered service members criticized the government of Jordan for initially saying that the US Green Berets were responsible.
"We are told that Jordan is an important ally in the war on terror, a war which I support, but I encourage our president and our administration to take a hard look at our relationship with an ally who would so callously disrespect the sacrifice made by our boys," Brian McEnroe, the father of one of the slain soldiers, said.

Rest in peace warriors. Personally, I wish President Trump would remove our brave men from all of the sh!tholes of the ME/NA and Afghanistan, and just let the muzscum kill each other off.

Fed up with having U.S. soldiers put in harm's way in "wars" that were never officially declared, whose goals were never clearly defined, and which were never meant to be won. Just stop the "hijra" (immigration jihad) of the muzscum into our country, outlaw izlam (sic - on purpose) in this country for the subversive, destructive, totalitarian ideology that it is, and we need not have to worry about their jihad against us.

What a tragedy. . My thoughts and prayers go out to the 10TH Group and all SF soldiers and their families.

May these brave warriors rest in peace, knowing They will never be forgotten.

May those responsible burn hot in hell for eternity.

"The Jordanian Air Force guard opened fire on the second vehicle"

"After closing in on their position, the shooter shot"

FBI investigation is still ongoing, but **** if this is not a deliberate attempt

Rifle + element of surprise vs. side arms in confined space.

Rest In Peace, Brothers.

No one knows whether you're a genius or an idiot until you open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Don't know where I'm goin', but there's no use in bein' late.
I've never been lost. I've been a mite confused at times, but never lost.
I'm not lost! I know where I am; I just don't know where everybody else is.

There's a puppet master in this some place. I'm not smart enough to know where to look, but under a rock for sure.

Need blood in the scuppers over this. Nothing less.

RIP and condolences to the families and involved...

One thing has always stuck in my craw about what I hear coming out of Jordan and I realize they are considered allies and have some similar interests in the region as well as recognize their support. Taken in context this happened many years ago but the single biggest #$%@^&%$*& during Nasty Nick was a Jordanianian soldier...Tacs had to literally pull us away and explain there were some cultural differences. A good example of one is not like the other...

The dudes in the trailing vehicles would have been wise to keep an eye on that first guard that moved behind them.
