@SEAN SPOONTS IQ 34?:)))
Hi's Latvian ;)
34 Latvian soldiers, members of Operational Mentor and Liaison Team, fulfilled their service duties in Eastern Afghanistan, Kunar Province, just few kilometers from the Pakistan border. Along with 11 U.S. Michigan National Guard soldiers they trained senior staff and soldiers of Afghan National Army Unit and were located in places the Unit carried out its combat tasks.

Here's more about them:
BATRIK, Pakistan — On the northwest tip of Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan's Nuristan province, the inaccessible Chitral district has long been thought to be a possible refuge for Osama bin Laden. With the high peaks of the Hindu Kush range and its narrow valleys, it's easy to dodge through secret mountain routes between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Chitral is also the home of the Kalasha, a unique pagan civilization that's lived in the area for 2,000 years or more, now boxed in by an increasingly militant Islam. Thinly populated, Chitral covers 5,800 square miles, with war-torn Afghanistan to the north and west and the extremist strongholds of Swat and Dir to the south.
According to locals, bin Laden lived with a Kalasha family in Chitral for some time during his first Afghan jihad, against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. With his now much more severe ideology, the al Qaida leader wouldn't be able to easily live among these polytheistic people, whose men and women mix freely.
Are the Latvians the ones assigned to protect the Kalas from the rest of Pakistan?
Or was it the Poles?
The Kalas are almost like an "Atlantis-type" civilization in that they have been located in the Chitral region for over 2000 years, and are very open minded and liberal in their practices of Islam.Yet, they have limited influences from outside of their boundaries. Theyre also considered to be exhiled from Pakistan bc of their unique belief system. Pretty amazing to be honest and interesting HUMINT that is coming in from that area of the world.
