3 US Green Berets murdered entering a military base in supposedly friendly Jordan where they'd ridiculously been sent by the Neocon US to help "train" Jordanians. To do what? Neocon US won't or can't stop terrorism and defend its own borders, and therefore is in no position to market its "training" services elsewhere, especially to Middle East hell holes, where US Neocons are drawn like bees to honey squandering lives and taxpayer dollars
