Irony in War
    #804646 - 08/08/02 01:59 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I was watching a program on CNN, about a revolt of Al Qaeda prisoners of war in Afghanistan. After surrendering the fight, these prisoners made thier way to a fort in Bagram where Northern Alliance soldiers were waiting to take them as prisoners. In the video you could see a CIA agent interrogating an American who was captured, who turned out to be John Walker. In the dialogue, the CIA agent Mike Spann became irritated at Walker's refusal to answer his questions. "He needs to decide if he wants to ******* live, cause the Red Cross is here only for the guys who are talking". The ironic part is that there is no way Spann could have known that the 500 prisoners had snuck in hand grenades, and grapped weapons from thier captors. In the battle that followed, Mike Spann became the first KIA in the war in Afghanistan, and John Walker was one of the few survivors of the prisoners, and became a media frenzy. War confuses me, I used to think maybe it could accomplish something, but its erratic and cruel nautre makes me wonder what good it could do for the long run.

This is also not the right forum for this thread however entertaining it might be.

This belongs in the political forum.
