    Restrepo

    Anyone watched this?
    I just saw it on Netflix, really interesting.

    https://restrepothemovie.com/

    It's about a platoon that goes to the Korengal Valley on Afghanistan for 15 months to provide security for a main road to promote business.
    Also named the most dangerous zone in the country.

    Discuss.

    Seen it 2 times.
    1 sober, 1 drunk.
    Interesting both times, and would recommend it to anyone who looks at war footage etc.

    I watched it on Netflix. It was actually a good movie.

    I like the part where they had Stupify playing in the background.

    And that bitch wanted them to pay for his Cow.

    LMAO....He said no, but we can give you some rice.


    I like the part where he got fed up trying to talk with the towel heads and just said "you're not understanding that I just don't give a shit".


    Had me busting the fuck up.

    Just made me wonder why the hell were still over there even more than I did.
    The people in those villages were obviously lying through their teeth, they lost a few guys from their platoon, and their sister platoon lost 9, and for what purpose?
    Geurilla warfare can't be fought with a conventional army.
    You would think that we would have caught onto that after Vietnam.
