Dramatic new drone video (above) of the Niger ambush that killed four American soldiers shows U.S. forces desperately trying to escape and fighting for their lives after friendly Nigerien forces mistook them for the enemy. It describes how the fleeing troops set up a quick defensive location on the edge of a swamp and - thinking they were soon to die - wrote messages home to their loved ones. Four U.S. soldiers were killed  in a remote village near Niger's border with Mali. From left to right: Sgt La David Johnson, 25; Staff Sgt Bryan Black, 35; Staff Sgt Jeremiah Johnson, 39; and Staff Sgt Dustin Wright, 29.

Not an American myself but still the way the people are reacting to the death of these fighters who died for their country is disgraceful. I saw the whole footage, these soldiers fought bravely against the odds and the ones that died did so honourable and fought till the last bit of blood left their bodies. Nothing but respect.

The comment section of any military video is pure cancer and always reminds me how half of humanity is below average intelligence and how cruel people can be. My thoughts go to the fallen soldiers and their families, may those warriors rest in peace.

If you want to read about crazy suicidal missions look up "behind enemy lines" by John Plaster. It's about SOG which did multiple weekly missions in Cambodia and Laos during the Vietnam War. Average 7 man teams (3 American, 4 non) going up against anything from squads to battalions or companies, counter recon. They made hell for the NVA but they paid the price too, sometimes losing entire teams.
I read a lot of history but this book is written so well, with humor and antics, knowledge and personal experiences, that I've read it 5 times. A must read for history and military fans.
Salute to these soldiers who fought and died in Niger. Any time you're taking out Islamist terrorists you're doing the world a favor. So don't complain.

La David Johnson wasn't found for 48 hours after the attack. 4 weeks after he was laid to rest they were still finding his body parts in Niger. There are videos that show 2 of the other 4 that were killed being shot point blank in the face as they laid on the ground dying. (Look it up) The Daily Mail just reports what they want you to think...

DOD needs to explain, why they were using contractor convoys for troop moments... (Fyi that's why they in armoured SUVs). Save money? Blurring the lines?
