AND DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO LAUNCH A FULL-SCALE, 100,000-TROOP MISSION. THEY SENT IN 12 SPECIAL FORCES GUYS AND THEY HAD VERY LITTLE INTEL ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE WALKING INTO, HAD NO IDEA WHO THEY WERE MEETING, JUST KNEW THEY HAD TO LINK UP WITH ONE OF THE LOCAL OR A LOCAL WARLORD.

  1. Now I really want to see “Always Blame the Horse,” starring Chris Hemsworth and featuring Alan Alda as the voice of “The Horse”.

  2. wonder when they are going to make a movie about the "theory" that 911 was an inside job. for how long are they going to feed us that some cavemen managed to hijack two plains ignoreing the fact that somehow they managed to fly it, and then managed to pass through all the security and hit two massive buildings in our country.

    IF you guys dont know, the white house has a security system which is for the times when an unauthorized flying object comes in to the zone of the white house not close to the white house but the zone which encompases quit large areas, they can get rid of it in a matter of seconds. where was that sort of security system?

  3. Only a little bit of riding for 4 months? Ummm in 4 months that would actually be a lot of riding not a little! I mean how often did they partake in riding lessons during those 4 months? And plus it sounds like they were not even ready to take a big step up in their riding nor did they think thoroughly about that idea.

  4. I hate American Military because they keep attacking and destroying and mainly killing millions of innocent civilians, when the real root cause is within their government. Not only innocent people are dying y millions, even their own soldiers are dying.

  5. i find it really funny that he rode for '4 months' on this horse and he felt 'ready to get off'. lol I ride every day and have been for 6 years. (Like if you're a fellow equestrian)

  6. Yea but it's Chris Hemsworth… Even if the whole world knows the truth, just for movie sake, it looks great. And it's Chris

  7. still over here wondering why he doesn't just take a few links out of his watch's wristband and it'll sit right where he keeps moving it to…..

  8. Chris is rare. He's not a chick boy or chick trophy he only had 1 ex gf and 1 one wife. never divorce and not easily seduce. Very rare hot guy.
