    Have you ever been to Iraq?

    What they teach you in school doesnt always apply over there.
    And it doesnt matter how good you think you are, one booby trap or well placed round can take you out.

    understandable on how it might throw things for a loop if youre trying to clear a large building like that when dudes are lobbing grenades at you....

    shouldn't affect how you maneuver once inside though. at one point one of the guys start shooting at the door and the person next to him jumps because he was surprised by the gunfire.

    lol did you see him accidental discharge at like 5:00?


    and to think the army, navy or the airforce is any better at clearing anything at a time like this you are very wrong.

    To think that you would be any better in similiar circumstances is irrelevant.

    Unless you yourself have been tested in combat.

    Are you a Combat Veteran?

    yes

    yes


    Standing with your back to the place shots just came from. Leaving your gun on the wall so you can run over and drop a frag. Holding your gun at no kind of ready just down at your side with one hand. Pretty sure it's the second room they "clear" but the 2nd man in doesn't even look to his left. Flagging each other. Giving the guys in the house all day to get ready. No awareness. No type of leadership or organization.

    I agree there was a lot of complaceny shown by the Marines in the video.
    And I lot of things I would not do, were being done in the video.

    However, for someone to make a blanket statment that Marines suck at clearing is stupid and inflammatory.

    Not everyone is special forces, like the movies lead you to believe.

    If not the Marines, who else are they gonna send?
    The Army? The Iraqi's really fear the Army.
    :rolleyes:

    They may not have been the most tactically proficient group, but they got the job done.
    Thats what counts.
    Yes, they did make mistakes.
    Hopefully the learn from them.

    he made it to ranger so he thinks he's better than the average marine folk. this pissing thread should now be closed.
