  2. "all available enablers" ?????

    That's a hell of a percentage of KIAs for one unit for one firefight! Was this the FOB up by the border that AQ/local tribal militia tried to wipe off the map after the bombing of the "wedding party"?

    P-T
     
  3. Seems that's the way, US Army PR personnel are trained to speak..... :?
     
  4. So friendly force's enablers are employed to be enemy combatant dis-ablers? :?

    P-T
     
  5. Wasn't that the action to re-take Musa Qualeh? US Airborne went in a few days before the ANA to dominate a prominent feature and ended up getting well and truly battered daily by mortars and HMG fire. When they began pushing into the town it got abit tasty for them aswell.
     
  6. Quite possibly :)
     
  7. No - think it was further towards Pakistan :?
     
  8. ^I think he was being sarcastic Virgil, no need to get your panties in a twist. :wink:
