  1. “Green on blue”. I’m assuming that means friendly fire. No good.

  3. Just a few headaches they’ll be fine

  4. Heroes RIP. “Green on Blue.” Such a shame.

  5. Well I guess some more wedding parties are about to be droned

  6. Worth it. We have made them into a fully Democratic Republic in just 18 short years.

  7. War. Shit happens. You guys volunteered for that shit. Is there nothing else to cover in the word. When it rains outside the ground is wet afterwards. And in war people die.
