    I was gonna make a thread "THE MARINES HAVE LANDED!" but I knew you guys would probably just be like "so how many days left until the ban takes effect?" :rolleyes:

    maybe if they sent in the 82nd something would happen. i doubt the capabilities of the marines.

    you just don't get it do you, the marines go in and fuck shit up, then the army goes in and keeps it fucked up for a long time. different branch, different purpose

    i get the fact that when the 82nd was in fallujah they held that motherfucker down for a year... when the marines came in they lost it. maybe it all had to do with luck. but maybe it had to do with incompetence.

    This is not true at all, infact it is the exact opposite.

    I'm sitting here...scratching my face...wanting to peel the skin away just like in that movie poltergheist...cause that's what it's like trying to read the inane sqawkings of some really ignorant people.

    - What part of his statement didn't jive with what you posted? His company did support that BDE from the 82d and they did hand over control to the Marines and that BDE from the 82d did manage to keep some semblance of control over the area in the preceeding year...and the Marines did lose any semblance of control after they assumed the mission. It's all right there in your "Source". Do you not know how to read? Is it comprehension issues? What can I do to help?

    It's very clear in what I posted that there was already unrest, things were already out of control and the shit had already hit the fan before the Marines took over. It's all right there above spelled out in plain english, I don't know what you're trying to argue here...

    we've already dealt with so much bullshit from you already accord. i have one request for the rest of your military career. do not speak about wars or battles, or anything that has to do with it, until you are in one. after you've been shot at, then you can come talk to me. you read about this shit, and act like a badass, whereas brownfield, WAS THERE. don't try to contradict him, he was there, he saw it first hand. and until you see something like that, then i'd appreciate it if you never spoke again.
