i visited a website that shows all u.s. soldier deaths in iraq (honor the fallen) and i came to ask myself :"who's winning the war in iraq?" because it seems like marines are dying at a rate of 4 to 5 or more a day. in your opinion who's winning the war.
I think no one because were all killing eachother.
The "Coalition" Forces. They toppled the government and are occupying most of Iraq, seems like they're winning the "war". I think a better question would be, is this war worth the deaths. No, in my opinion.
Well depends on what you mean by winning? Do you mean how many of the opposition you have killed or vice versa? Or by how much land you control? You have to specify what you mean by winning. The Iraqi war isn't Team Deathmatch.
with all the armor on humvees i still can't believe that they get ripped to shreds by ied's. one thing is for sure you couldn't pay me enough money to risk it in iraq. it is a completely hostile and dangerous country. if the roadside bombs don't kill you "juba" the sniper will. Even cobra copters aren't safe to fly around , they get brought down by missiles.
I'd say we are. For every one of our guys who die about 10 insurgents get killed. That means we've probley killed about 20,000+ insurgents in this war. I'd say that's a good combat record, but it's pretty bad for how much technoligy we have invested in our troops. I hope they come up with huge, 30lb. body armor that can take an RPG blast nearby easy. How much steel armor can an RPG melt away anyways. And i'd say they need to bulid full helmets for our troops;with the microcamreas we have today, and compact LCD screens we could make a full helmet that can take a sniper's bullet and save the guys face. I'd rather be buying new helments for 1,000 bucks a pop than buying a new man and a grave when a sniper hits the head of an unprotected guy. Most kills to out troops come from RPGs hitting them dead on (can't stop that with body armor), sniper bullets (can be stopped), and IEDs (can be stopped). If they put some money into it we'd have guys like they do in Halo by 2015.
i agree with the full-face helmet for marines it would help protect troops from "juba" snipers who like to shoot the unprotected face of marines.
I heard a story about Americans in Iraq - One of our trucks (English) brkoe down. It had a Union Jack flag on each side. There were 5 good soldiers on that truck. Some American troops come along and what do they do? THEY BLOW IT UP!!! Why did you do that?
Delta Force How much steel armor can an RPG melt away anyways.
Rocket propelled Grenadess are not meant to incinarate on impact or to explode into tiny pieces. They are anti-armour. The tips are made of a very dense metal, usually lead. But the countries with a high budget for military make the whole rockets/grenades out of uranium. That's uber dense and can probably pass all the way through a tank. Anyway, just wanted to inform you that RPGs are next to useless against infantary. Unless your directely hit by one, thats a story for another day.
is that a true story? why did they blow up the truck? because of the union jack flags maybe? a racist thing?
