They can't beat us in a stand up fight.

Further info: I'm advised that this was a group of Brits, I don't know what / who.

Four wounded, two seriously enough to be evac'd to Great Britton.

I saw that for the first time about two months ago, I think. Sounds liek a Brit crew. The cool thing is how fast they get thier guns up and, working. Those are some bad, bad, men. I dunno if it's been on ARFCOM.

The problem is that they don't intend to fight us in one.

Where those brits? Though I heard an accent on the RO and that certainly didn't look like an armoured Hummer.

EDIT: As above, they were brits.

What a cowardly way to fight...

Lesson learned, dont drive by Iraqi vehicles.

Blow them up first.

don't make the mistake of thinking these scumbags are cowards or that they're stupid, they're neither. they're vicious, cunning, and evil and deserve to be destroyed utterly and without mercy.

Damn! Just riding in a vehicle over there has to have a high pucker factor.

That's what impressed me to no end--the sound of the explosion just blended into and became the sound of return fire. The courage of the men fighting there amazes me. Our guys today are every bit the same as those who won WWII. God bless them all.




+1, I was struck by that when someone posted the video of the medic being saved by his body armour. His first instinct was to pull his weapon up and try to return fire.

The Israeli's are in it for their benefit only. They sell our secrets to China, and you call them our friends? Sorry, I no longer buy the crap that they are our ally. They will side with the biggest boys on the block and I'm afraid it's not us anymore.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that. You could be correct--but I hope not.



No. That's the way it was described on Ogrish, but, they don't know anything more than what they are told. If you listen to the gunfire, it immidietly starts at one pitch/volume/rythm and, remains constant. There would have been varience and, fadeing if it had been the terrs shooting. Play it again. You'll hear the auto weapons and, the one, semi weapon, which sounds like it's a bigger caliber.

You are free to be "afraid."

I am not.
