This guy needs to be refitted for a properly sized helmet

Cool pics, thanks.

Everytime I see one of those new kevlars I think that looks so gay. Of course I kind of doubt the guys wearing them care how they look.

Well the guy in the first pic has one that fits right. The soldier in the 3rd pic probably has an ACH with the thicker pads.

Yeah, they look stupid, but I'd kill for a new one. I hate my old POS.

Good pics Lumpy. Glad to see our soldiers displaying good gun handling qualities, except for the machine-gunner in the first pic.

Nice to see American soldiers defending themselves against unarmed retarded people in a forceful manner. I don't know what the story on that one was, but in my book, it had better be a really damn good for knocking a handicapped person down.

My guess is that the guy wasnt complying with what the soldiers wanted him to do. What they probably saw was a simple case of resistance coming from this Iraqi, simple as that.

Uh, well, in a fragile situation I sure would want whoever was in my zone of responsibility to comply ASAP, especially after a friggin bomb exploded. Sure would suck for a soldier to lose his awareness of his surronding because someone wasn't complying with his orders and possibly get popped while trying to "handle" the guy.

why do all people with down syndrome look the same? (No, I'm not being sarcastic, its a serious question)

The human brain is sensitive to gross features first. If you weren't used to being around black/white/chinese/mexican/whatever people, you would think that most of them looked alike. If you spent more time around them, your brain would gloss over the common characteristics and see the individual differences.

And how hard would it be to convince someone with such a handicap to strap a bomb to himself...? Hell, the "normal" ones do it all the time.

Welcome to war.

I don't know what causes the distinct facial appearance, I guess it is a side affect of the disorder.

You . His rifle isn't pointed anywhere near the individual. Very good awareness, unlike yourself.

God Bless our troops. I look forward to these pics.

I meant why do they have similiar facial features?, they all look related to each other which is weird since I thought it only effects them mentally.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 10:14:42 AM EST
it's just a very specific side affect. Like how people who get lung cancer develop short stubby fingers and people with heart disease have a crease through their ear lobe.

Who criticized our soldiers? I just pointed out that it was a bad looking picture and that I hope there was a good reason for it. My 4 years in the army was working on a radar for an obsolete missile, I know absolutely nothing about securing a bomb site or stuff like that. Everyone's explanations about what our guys were doing in those photos were more than plausible to me.

ETA: I also noticed how the media made sure to point out that he was suffering from Downs, but did not explain what was happening in the photo.
