Y'know ace, you're right. We need better video from our contractors over in the sandbox.

Why don't you contact Blackwater and tell them you want to go?

Oh wait, just ask Travis (SimplyDynamic). You see he has BEEN there and DONE that, BOTH for the USMC and Blackwater.

I'm sure he can give you the hookup.

Why don't you take a fucking hike? You are not amusing at all if that's what you think. If you don't like the video, fine. Don't fucking watch it. But the rest of us don't seem to have any issue with it.

BTW, now I know what your problem is. You said you worked for a news agency for 5 years. That explains everything.

Only a dumbass is gonna stand up and expose themselves to fire just so they can have a better home video. Besides, this wasn't a firefight where the enemy was just mere yards away where they could be easily seen. This engagement was taking place at pretty long range. Note the burning vehicle in the distance.

The proof is in the pudding and we saw the end result of the fighting at the end of the video.....insurgents sitting tied up in the back of a 5 ton truck (one of which was crying like a little bitch) with sandbags over their head.

As for the gunships? Maybe they never hit any targets. That might explain why there was no video.

BTW, I guess these Blackwater guys will be all heartbroken that you dislike their video shooting ability. Maybe you can go over and grab us some better quality ones.



Yes, they are a bunch of amateurs .....

This is the SECOND time valblade has stuck his head neck deep into something he obviously has no clue about. Valblade, this video was simply just a few minutes worth of a fight that lasted HOURS, with enough ordnance sent downrange that they had to be resuppied by helicopter at least once (maybe twice, I foget now) with more ammo. This was about 12 men fighting off HUNDREDS of enemy attackers. There is a steak dinner at my expense waiting for EVERY SINGLE ONE of those guys if I ever meet them. One for sure is going to get his dinner if I have to go drag him to it.



Holy shit!

That did not show in this video, but is an element that I wish had been mentioned earlier as it changes the perspective - a lot.

those men will be sharing that with their children /grandchildren for generations.

F**ing Awesome!

Slightly disturbing...

I believe there is still more to the story. . . . The helicopter resupplies may not have been authorized, because the military and/or BW didn't think these guys were going to make it. From what I've heard the helo pilots and the 12 men were truly heroic. My hope is that someone writes a book or makes a movie about the experience. We are always in short supply of true heroes.

My guess? These two guys were good friends and they were just harassing each other. Both were probably grinning ear to ear when they were saying that stuff. I view it as no biggie. Just one of those "inside" things you'd have to be there to understand. I highly doubt the guy who uttered that is really a raging racist.

BTW, that was a pretty kick ass video. It was worth the wait to download.

Negative.

As I pointed out before, listen to the video again carefully. That exchange was between him and another guy in his unit.

After the initial volley of fire, I hear a voice (either an actual black guy or a white guy acting goofy and being all ghetto like) say: Hey white boy, you need another magazine? Following that, there is some rustling around as the guys reload. Then came the comment...."effing N'ers!". When the camera pans around to the guys faces, that one has the biggest shit eating grin on his face you ever saw. Nothing was meant by this, that much I am almost sure of.

IMHO, this was just two friends pestering each other and nothing more. I doubt there was any actual racism intended. Just some razzing among friends. It was not directed at the insurgents (otherwise "sand" would have preceded the N part) and it was not directed at blacks in general either. It was just a goofy comment made in the heat of battle among buddies. Nothing more. I don't think we should be concerned or read anything more into it.



Thanks for clearing that up...

I didn't hear or see that part...

The Marine on the corner with the SAW was shot shortly after the picture was taken...he was OK we called for medivac and the Army (Gen Sanchez) wouldnt authorize a Medivac. so we put him in our little birds and flew him 70 mi north back to Baghdad and then rearmed and flew right back down.

here is the story in a nutshell:

The 5 man BW crew that was assinged tto CPA Najaf were coming under heavy small arms and mortor fire, the city was being taken over by insurgents. The Police stations and hospitals were taken by as well, after a day of fighting off hundreds of insurgents the city had been completly overran, with the CPA in the heart of the city and no way out.

the Team called up to Baghdad and reported the situation. they said they needed immediate extract which Gen Sanchez also denined due to the fact the city had been overran and they were no US troops there, only contractors. Well Ambassador Bremer was pissed at sanchez and I remember being on office watch during the massive arguments! ambassador bremer and our Baghdad TM Leader got together and Bremer said "I dont want another Bridge hanging! Get those boys out of there by any means nessassary!" so 12 of us 6pilots and 6 gunners loaded as much as we could in 3 MD530 little birds and headed 70 miles south. we flew in the first day and blind (no comms, and no intel on the heat) to try a resupply, land find out was was going on and then head back, rearm and get ready to go again. Well that night all hell broke lose and we flew back in. Over 1000 insurgents (reported by the F18 pilots) had taken the city and now wanted the CPA after a day of intense fighting by 11 BW guys, airstrikes, a handfull of Marines and 1 sniper we were able to hold them off. After it DIED down and gunships and SF guys finnally started to roll in the battle was soon over and we the CPA was saved.
That pretty much it in a nut shell...
