Sue The Bastards!

Staff Sgts. Matt Lewellen, Kevin McEnroe and Jimmy Moriarty….do those names mean anything to you?

Unless you read a lot those names mean nothing.

They are the names of Green Berets killed in Jordan by an ally…they were gunned down returning from a training mission…..well the families are suing Jordan for their deaths…..

The families of three Green Berets killed by a member of the Jordanian Air Force as they entered a base in Jordan filed a lawsuit against that country’s government, charging it attempted to cover up the incident and slander their fallen sons.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington seeks monetary damages from the Kingdom of Jordan, where the Special Forces soldiers were stationed when they were gunned down Nov. 4, 2016 by Jordanian Air Force 1st Sgt. Maarik al-Tawayha. The Green Berets – Staff Sgts. Matt Lewellen, Kevin McEnroe and Jimmy Moriarty – were driving onto King Faisal Air Base in southern Jordan midday after training Syrian rebel forces when al-Tawayha inexplicably opened fire on them.

More useless deaths in a war that should have ended years ago.

I hope the families get satisfaction for their loved ones deaths…..deaths that did not need to be a statistic….endless wars and preparations are what killed these men…..and the country shrugs and allows the stupid to continue.

      1. In the company of savages, one should take extra precautions because “Self Interest” is not served by being shipped home in a box because you trusted someone who is supposed to have your back.

  1. So many soldiers have been killed by being ambushed by supposed ‘allies’. I think complete segregation from those ‘allies’ is the only option. Of course, an even better option is not to be involved in those countries in the first place.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. There is no need for our troops to be interacting with citizens of “Host” countries and most especially when ideological divergences are so strong as they are between them and us. When we are “Training” them, they need to be kept in separate barracks and under vigilant guard because no matter how hard we try, we are never going to win the hearts and minds of these people. Hating us is in their dna.

      1. Fair enough. How about if “The Experience” were to happen to someone else — someone close to your heart? Would that make a difference?

      2. A ‘what if’ is never a good thing….because as a human I cannot say how I would react……what is it you want me to say, John? chuq

      3. I don’t want you to say anything, Chuq — But I am convinced that if a loved one became a victim your tolerance level for potentially-threatening people might be subject to adjustment.
