Given the obvious importance of the ring road to our campaign in Afghanistan, it’s good to see the U.S. Marines engaging the local Afghans in activity that will both keep them away from the Taliban and help them earn some of their own money.
Next is a video of combat action in and around Now Zad. There is some dumb propaganda at the beginning based on a bad rendering of Psalm 23. Rightly understood, the Marines should fear no evil because our lives and times are in God’s hands. A good antidote to this poor rendering of Psalm 23 can be found here. That said, this video shows a useful contrast to the softer side of counterinsurgency found in the first video.
