2nd:supersix, i never say the USA suck, so stop twisting my word.


3rd:before the war start, i see so many arrogant people post that war on iraq would be over in a week. I just want to see what do they think now. because in my opinion, iraq has put out a good fight.

btw, chuckie, our armed forces are doing VERY well thank you. It's never easy to invade.

BTW, contrary to your childish thinking, the expertise of the canadians wouldn't make any difference.
4th: yo, if it's doing very well, then why is Bush bring more troops to Iraq? perhaps current allie forces in iraq MAY not be enough to win the war, and Bush need the backup.
BTW LeeTJ, to say what you say, you must think Canadian present in WW1 and WW2 doesn't really make difference.

Originally posted by rudder: How would you propose to get at the iraqi military without killing large number of civilians? go back to playing pacman.


yo, i see you are really into pacman, you must have really high score. I wasn't the one that say the war is gonna be over in a week, because we have all the high tech stuff, and iraq is weaker then 1991.
Rudder, when you take break from that pacman game, listen to this, the allie force is not fight iraq army with civilians in the middle yet.
Right now, allie face a tough resistance from iraq army in the desert battle field.

Before the war, alot of people are saying iraq army force can't touch allie's army, and how useless iraq army is....etc
comment like iraq T-72, T62 are useless against the M1 tank, and how apache would kill the iraq tanks before iraq can open fire...
comment like allie's bombers and tanks, will walk over the iraq's useless army like leafs, and war is gonna be over in a week...

i am not a pro iraq, but i think alot of trash talker should get the facts, because iraq may lose this war, but their fighting spirits has made you look stupid.

The troops had orders to be shipped out before this war even started. The plan has always been to continuously bring more troops into the area as time went on. Somebody was talking about this earlier, they said that somebody asked if he was getting shipped out to Iraq because the war isn't going well, and he said "no, I got the papers saying that I was getting shipped out over a month ago".

Also, where the M1 tanks have encountered the T-55's and T-72's, we have knocked them out pretty easily. That's why their tanks have retreated back into the city so that they can hide next to civilian areas so they won't be destroyed. If their tanks were able to fight ours, they'd be attacking. They are not fighting us in the desert battlefield, they have moved back into their towns and cities. Most of our fighting has NOT occured in the desert, but in towns like Basra, Nasiriya and El Quasar

I don't know who said this war would be over in a week. They were clueless and too optimistic. Nobody expects to invade a country and overthrow its government without a fight, and these things take longer than a week.

Get a clue would you. What do you think the hold up is? Iraqi soldiers fighting from military positions?

No, the hold up is that the Iraqis are fighting from civilian homes, hospitals, schools, etc. and doing everything in their power to confuse themselves as civilians. If the coalition wanted to clean up the mess they could in a heartbeat but that would mean killing an untold amount of civilians right now, and that is exactly what they are striving, at peril of thier own lives, not to do.

I must ask you this.....what "TROUBLE" are you referring to? If the war ends in another month, it will still be a quick war. Quit stirring up BS.

Will all those who posted some comment or started a thread to the effect that the Iraqis would throw down their weapons and surrender faster than the French please step forward so we can see you?

Thanks.

I thought the rumors that the French surrendered were proven to be false?:confused: Apparently the French haven't gotten the memo to surrender. :p

The Iraqi's didn't destroy the Apache, we did. For some reason or another the Apache landed in Iraq and its pilots were captured. I don't know why it was forced to land but I saw close up video and there were no bullet holes in it. But it landed on its wheels, it wasn't shot down and destroyed. After it sat on the ground for a while one of our jets bombed it to prevent Iraq from stealing the technology.

It's twisting your "words"..

And I'm not, you fail to see the sarcasm. No, you didn't directly say we suck, but you are concerned because we can't bring an entire nation to complete surtrender in eight days. No one said/indicated it will take less than that, one would have to be a total moron to think that.

Will we win it quickly? Compared to other wars, this will be a flash in the pan, but never quick enough for the fat-asses sitting at home bitching because they have no clue about the logistics and realities of WAR. It's messy.

And it's also "SuperSix", note the capitalization.

How would this be a set back for the Allies? It would be most welcome because they would be in a free fire zone. wouldn't have to take care about hitting civilians.

also m1 and apache been report destroy by iraq army in the battle field.
The first two M1's to be destroyed by enemy fire ever. How many Iraqi tanks have been destroyed by M1's? Also, none of the crews in those tanks were killed and only had slight injuries. How many Iraqi's can say the same after their tanks encountered M1's?

also report that some iraq military force are holding ground after fierce attack by allie force.
What ground would this be? In cities surrounded by civilians. In cities where we can't use all of our force against them. The Allies are doing everything they can do to prevent civilian casualites.

If the US fought this war with no regard to civilian life, and no care for rebuilding IRAQ, it would already be over!

I really don't think the US has no regard to iraqi civilian life. Only their PR is stopping them from blowing up Bagdad or Iraq.

By the way, I heard those M1's weren't even destroyed, their engines were just taken out when they were hit from behind.

if their engines are taken out, does it still have auxillary power to run all the electronics and turrets using possibly batteries? or does the crew just try to get the hell out?

I'd imagine that they'd want to get out if they couldn't drive the tank. I know that noone was injured in those tanks that got hit, so the tanks couldn't have been damaged all that bad or else the crew would be dead.

Man, it just keeps getting better and better.

If you try to minimize civilian casualties and do things carefully, the naysayers yell at you for not winning the war fast enough.

So what? We're supposed to go and just destroy everything?

Edit: Removed the remainder of my post. It's just not worth it.
