You Silly Trout, they were ambushed, are our soldiers suppose to just throw down their arms everytime someone takes a shot at them?Originally posted by: VioletAura
Someone who behaves recklessly and puts other peoples lives at risk doesn't deserve a medal. It is a shame you still can't see that. I don't know whether I should be laughing at you or feeling sorry for you. He was given that medal for political reasons in an attempt to create heros in a war where there are none. He didn't go above and beyond the call of duty and used poor judgement in his handling of the entire situation, including his time in captivity. More balls... apparently he was thinking with that part like almost all men, obsessed with being macho and not seeing the big picture. More balls than brains.
Man are you full of sh!t. Of course you are the same Skell who stated that Iran and Syria would invade Iraq and butcher the American troops. Maybe you should adjust your Burka so it doesn't effect your eyesight.The "individual initiative" is not "what got the job done" in Normandy and the Ardennes. The Allies simple overwhelmed the Germans with more tanks, more soldiers and more guns. It is no big secret the Germans fought way better than them. I don't see what "job got done" in korea. The US lost there, apparently human wave attacks where too much for the "individual initiative".
