Respect to the guys who make that happen.
Cool! I hope there was PIE in some of those crates! Nothin' like a piece of cherry PIE when yer fightin' the baddies!
Almost dropped all that stuff right on that tiny black plane following them...that little guy was flying right on the deck!
nice shadow on the ground
Keep the front lines well supplied so our boys can kick their scrawny asses
Yeah like that's EVER happened in the history of this war.
I wonder what that's like for the pilot, suddenly loosing all that weight and then having those doors close back and having less drag. Might feel like going from a dump truck to a sports car in 20 seconds. Or maybe not. lol
More like going from a full dump truck to an empty dump truck.
I hope they yelled FOUR when they dropped it.
Never tired watching this kind of footage. The c17 is an awesome airplane.
Boeing has many valued partners in Canada who help make it what it is...
crates filled with booze & porno so the marines don't go crazy from the lack of eye candy and alcohol.
As well and good as it is dropping supplies in Afghanistan maybe we should be doing more of that for the homeless, malnourished and poverty-stricken individuals in our own countries. Just saying :P
I'd like to see the same vid except dropping thousands of live pigs...lets see how those afgans like that?
Where's the audio?
should be enough weed for a few months.
Looks like they were all on one static line. Cool vid!
The sweat and toil of struggling Americans pays for this shit.
Hannibal Ghengis Kahn and Alex the Great are sitting around somewhere watching this saying "damn, if I'da had that..."
@Mr Ebk Just go to Dubai. Similar scenery but way nicer way cleaner just way more awesome in every single way.
@Mr Ebk Youd be suprised. You can ski there. Inside of course. The city is amazing. Although you are right alcohol is hard to get and you need a special permit.
Useless war... The only meaningful objective for the coalition is to withdraw all their troops without loosing face and credibility. It's already been a few years.
Those who say "we gave them freedom and democracy".. Bullshit, the Karzhai gouv. is corrupted and inoperative.
They've already lost face and credibility.
Kinda resembled my UPS driver.
Get in, drop it, and get the fuck out.
The drop accuracy looked spot on. Pretty damn good USAF.
@w0lf1o US foreign policy has strengthed radical Islamic groups, like the Taliban and caused the 9/11 WTC attacks.
Global opinion is that the US and Israel are the biggest threats to world peace. They are the biggest terrorists on Earth, so fuck the US.
@sk8tafrnk Cool story bro.
@w0lf1o Wow, you're ignorant.
The U.S. intelligence community has known this since at least 1958 when Dwight D. Eisenhower asked the National Security Council about "the campaign of hatred against us [in the Arab world], not by the governments but by the people."
In response to his inquiry the National Security Council explained that it was because the U.S. supports corrupt and brutal governments that block democracy and development, and does so because of its concern "to protec More..t its interest in Near East oil."
"Democratization is not on the American agenda in the Middle East. The reason? Because Washington finds it more efficient to support a range of dictators across the Arab world as long as they conform to U.S. foreign policy needs."- Graham E. Fuller former CIA 8/24/98
The Iraq sanctions were condemned as “genocidal” by the respected U.N. diplomats who administered them before finally resigning in protest because they were devastating the civilian population and strengthening Saddam Hussein.

American direct intervention in the Muslim World has paradoxically elevated the stature of and support for radical Islamists, while diminishing support for the United States to single-digits in some Arab societies.
Muslims do not “hate our freedom,” but rather, they hate our policies. The overwhelming majority voice their objections to what they see as one-sided support in favor of Israel and against Palestinian rights, and the longstanding, even increasing support for what Muslims collectively see as tyrannies, most notably Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan, and the Gulf states.
Thus when American public diplomacy talks about bringing democracy to Islamic societies, this is seen as no more than self-serving hypocrisy. Moreover, saying that “freedom is the future of the Middle East” is seen as patronizing, suggesting that Arabs are like the enslaved peoples of the old Communist World — but Muslims do not feel this way: they feel oppressed, but not enslaved.
Furthermore, in the eyes of Muslims, American occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq has not led to democracy there, but only more chaos and suffering. U.S. actions appear in contrast to be motivated by ulterior motives, and deliberately controlled in order to best serve American national interests at the expense of truly Muslim selfdetermination.
Therefore, the dramatic narrative since 9/11 has essentially borne out the entire radical Islamist bill of particulars. American actions and the flow of events have elevated the authority of the Jihadi insurgents and tended to ratify their legitimacy among Muslims. Fighting groups portray themselves as the true defenders of an Ummah (the entire Muslim community) invaded and under attack — to broad public support.
What was a marginal network is now an Ummah-wide movement of fighting groups. Not only has there been a proliferation of “terrorist” groups: the unifying context of a shared cause creates a sense of affiliation across the many cultural and sectarian boundaries that divide Islam.
Finally, Muslims see Americans as strangely narcissistic — namely, that the war is all about us. As the Muslims see it, everything about the war is — for Americans — really no more than an extension of American domestic politics and its great game. This perception is of course necessarily heightened by election-year atmospherics, but nonetheless sustains their impression that when Americans talk to Muslims they are really just talking to themselves.
Thus the critical problem in American public diplomacy directed toward the Muslim World is not one of “dissemination of information,” or even one of crafting and delivering the “right” message. Rather, it is a fundamental problem of credibility. Simply, there is none — the United States today is without a working channel of communication to the world of Muslims and of Islam. Inevitably therefore, whatever Americans do and say only serves the party that has both the message and the “loud and clear” channel: the enemy. Less..
@sk8tafrnk No, it's not that I disagree with you, it's that you replied with something completely irrelevant to the video or my comment. Go post your novel somewhere else bro.
@w0lf1o Where does it say, anywhere, in the LiveLeak Terms of Service that you must post a comment that is related to the subject matter of the video? It doesn't so fuck off.
Care Package in bound!
After 10 years, I just see a never-ending stream of taxpayer money going bye-bye with these vids.
you guys should be used to it by now. Another war to test new weaponry.
no shit, it's not as if we have a choice. we aren't hurting for oil, our economy doesn't rely on warfare but guess what, we are attached to you so we have to always help our number one trade partner and fight all enemies that USA makes.
