    I just need to blow off some steam. I was just watching CNN and they are all talking about the Reporters that were killed or injured when the US hit the Hotel they were gathered in. This reporter said "The US told us not to be near Bagdad but thats TOO BAD!! Its our Privlidge to be there reporting the news! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif She then says, The US said they had sniper fire from the Hotel, non of us reporters heard any and even if there was, the same type of (caliber) of bullet should have been returned, nothing more!!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    Are these people F*#k*$g STUPID!! Theres a War happening and if they dont want to potentially be killed get the F^$k out! There aint Noooooo way any of our forces should be put as risk for a G*D D%*M Reporter!

    I think a couple of GBU-27's up their Ass is what they need.


    Sorry, needed to vent but these stupid morons are really getting on my nerves!

    haha

    I was thinking kinda the same thing as you today.
    I was like "If these reporters know we're bombing Bagdad, What the hell are they doing in bagdad! They're asking to get killed."

    "Saber 6, this is Saber 2. We're taking sniper fire!!!!"
    "Two, this is Six. What caliber was it, over?"
    "Saber Six, it was 155mm rounds!" The reports of 7.62 can be heard in the background.
    "Are you sure Two? I only hear small arms fire over."
    "Six, this is Two. That's affirm on the 155mm."
    "Hellfire Six, this is Saber Six. Fire mission. Sniper in building. Hotel Sierra 13920304. Fire for effect."
    "Ah Saber Six this is Hellfire Six. Confirm fire for effect?"
    "Affirm. We are taking One Five Five mike mike over."


    The next day at the news briefing....
    "General, Tom Fawkchop, United Press."
    "Yes Tom."
    "General, yesterday; after the Army agreed to our pleas to answering sniper fire with an equal or lesser caliber round; a unit engaged a sniper using an artillery battery. The battery fired over 100 rounds into a small, two story building to terminate the sniper. How do you explain this General?"
    "Well Tom, I'll explain it to you this way. If I wanted to kick someone's a**, let's say some dumba** reporter's a** named Tom from United Press, there are two ways to kicking your a**. The first method is to be nice and take my time doing it using nothing but open handed slaps opening myself up to retaliation from yourself. Or method two, I could use, let's say the butt of my M-16 assault rifle and my combat boots and be done with the job in let's say, you are pretty much a candya** so I'll say it would take me 3.4 seconds while keeping my personal well-being safe.
    'Now Tom, do you see my point?"

    Can't do that these days. The radio traffic is monitored. Learned that while I was OPFOR at NTC. They told us to quit bouncing onto BluFor's nets so much cause of all the grief we were giving them. Didn't stop me from bouncing my old unit's Logistics Net one day to talk to my buddy acting as the Company XO. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You forgot the spotter round...and adjust...but maybe your better than me.

    No armor just reserve grunts. Why'd it take 70 + tanks for 3rd ID to go in? huh huh /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Is real war like NTC where you can just look at your MILES and get an 8 or 10 digit grid from that? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Now that I think back to the call for fire class we just did last month, you have a table of numbers and letters. They will say "Affirm" and then a letter, and you have to go to the one right below it in the chart to get them to fire after you call in the fire mission. As for whether you're good enough that you have to do one round at a time until you call fire for effect, who cares, it's Iraq, they're all targets anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]

    1. Because the 3rd ID has all those tanks, why not use them?

    2. Have you seen Blackhawk down? That's what happens when you go into a city without armor.

    Then again, it doesn't seem they're putting up much of a fight at all. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Well, I could "shock and awe" ya with explanations, tactics and graphics. I could tell ya that because mechanized warfare looks a lot more glamourous and brings in higher ratins for TV. Nope, not gonna throw out a line of BS. The reason why used all those tanks is this, I'll borrow the line from the motto of one of my former units, the 9th United States Cavalry, "We Can, We Will." /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
