Ep 3: Eagle Eye (Ops Diaries – SAF in Afghanistan)

by David Jenyns

They work in a container of sorts, but despite the small office space, the internal UAV pilot and his team of two provide a critical surveillance blanket that generates real-time intelligence to front-line coalition forces through the night. Catch Mano as he goes solo in Afghanistan to film this six-part series on SAF operations there.
Video Rating: 5 / 5

Sixth (Ajna) chakra energy: ELEMENT: Light. Pay attention to the amount of light in your home and adjust it for your needs. Less light brings coziness; more lifts dark moods. Spend a few minutes paying attention to sunlight through trees. See if you can tell how colors look different under different lighting. SOUND: Waves crashing on the rock. Go to the ocean during storm season. Listen. Choose a recording of thunderstorms or crashing waves to listen to during meditation. COLOR: Indigo. Use this variation of blue/purple in your wardrobe or your home decor to remind yourself of your intention to improve your mental clarity. Burn indigo candles and meditate on the flame. EXERCISE: Yoga headstands. Eye strengthening exercises, as in looking at an internal clock face, holding your eyes a couple seconds at each number. Keep a dream journal, writing in it first thing each morning. Join a dream study group. Take a class in something you’ve had difficulty understanding. Imagine yourself succeeding. Imagine yourself holding beliefs that are counter to what you currently believe, and how your life would be different.

If you are so critical about the SAF in Afghanistan, then how about you go to the frontline yourself? Do you have the guts, do you have the mental strength? needed, NO! That is why you are making such derogatory comments about your own army! Therefore, you have absolutely no right at all to comment about the SAF’s operations there.

I have friends there in theatre, and I’d rather they return safely to their families than to get injured/killed to prove a? point.
@MRidzwan: If you do not have the guts to volunteer or do not have the honour to do so, then shut up and grow a pair. Those people went there not because they are adrenalin junkies, they went there because they have a job to do.

@MRidzwan. If your friends and relatives were in the group deployed, I don’t think you’ll feel the same. It’s not our war. No need to act garang at frontline. Having more dead soldiers is nothing to be proud of. We should just play our part and do? it safely. Don’t need to sacrifice people to show we’re more world class.
