Look, if you don't have anything to say, just shush it!

These men sacrifice their lives, sleep, peace, pleasure, and so much more just to ensure that you enjoy that which they lack. Instead of appreciation, this is what they get from you?

You think everything is APC vs PDP abi?

Nonsense!

I think the people dishing out commands to these fine brave men are incompetent.
Why should the Army send nine persons to their death just so ten persons can be set free?
Whichever way you choose to look at this issue, that mission made a mockery about the existential intelligence of the Army . Nine deaths just so 10 persons can be rescued? This is a Huge capital to bokoharam that place no value on their lives and believe they will be given 72 virgins and even more if they send as many enemies as they can to their death.
