  1. Terrorist keeps increasing as if their employment rate is so higher than our military. I feel so bad that we are losing soldiers, high ranking once for that matter. Is becoming a shameooo. B4 if a uniform man is standing here without any weapon and an arm rubber standing across d road with intention of rubbing, as soon as he sight this uniform, D fear and change of mind is d next options. But now let him stand with all d weapons in armory the rubber will go ahead with his business. Why is it like that now???
