@destraht didn't realize it was a link. Just looked like bold type.
Yeah, I was in Iraq 3 times. Some of the destruction of water treatment facilities, etc. really was due to insurgents, but most of it was during the initial invasion in 2003, when we were fighting the Iraqi Army under Saddam.
I didn't see any deliberate destruction of any infrastructure, and if anything, we went to great lengths to avoid collateral damage to buildings, infrastructure, etc.
The stuff about the BAATS system, not giving water unless they let us scan, etc. all checks out, though.
I never participated in any gay-ass "zombie drills" or even heard of such nonsense.
@Typo-MAGAshiv They were part of the weeds of my house. I cleared about 2/3 of the land and left the rest wild. It will give my soon-to-tbe chickens some good pecking land. Probably these trees are about four to six years old and hungry for Sun. I'm not sure which of them that I'll keep, and eventually some serious work needs to be done. What I didn't want to do was to bulldoze everything and then just have weeds and dust.
