Re: Battle of Buena Vista

How do you stop the superior Mexican cavalry from circling your lines? Find ground that sucks for horses. Buena Vista was a battlefield of gulleys and valley that would maim the horses or else make it hard to get through. The Americans also had the "new" technology of the flying gun. Artillery that ...

Re: Random thought of the moment.

Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life? Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair. Mongol General: Wrong!

Re: And now what?

I wouldn't blame this on Bush either. This was coming, one way or the other, and it has been heading this way since the mid-1970s. Start with the assassination of Sadat by the Muslim Brotherhood and continue forward. If folks think that a dictator like Saddam would have stopped ISIS, just look at Sy...

Re: Movie Reviews

Just watched "Special Forces" on netflix instant watch. Usually I shy away from anything with "Special Forces" or "Seal Team" in the title, since it will inevitably be about a multi-cultural diverse mix of soldiers (and one woman, who grabs her dick a lot and cusses more than the guys) who seem like...

Re: Movie Reviews

I think I saw three RPG hits on the HMMWVs/5 tons in Somalia when we got there. Lack of detonation was attributed to being fired within the minimum arming distance, so they didn't arm the warhead. Yeah, well, what do you know? I was at the battle of Blackhawk Down man. You know the black guy in the...

Re: Movie Reviews

This is a review of the movie "Fury" that I posted on a site, mainly made up of non-veteran reenactors of the 30th Division: I saw the movie last night in Sanford with my daughters, a current paratrooper and the son of my friend, the 82nd CSM (Puck for those on ArmyRanger.com). What was interesting ...

Re: Movie Reviews

Saw "The Raid 2" tonight. This is the sequel to "The Raid" (I know, hard to follow...). This was the ultra violent martial arts movie made in Indonesia. The Raid 2 is just as violent, but it is a hell of an action flick. I got it on a Netflix disc (not instant yet). The only complaint is I couldn't ...

Re: Pakistani Taliban vows White House assault

The attack was cancelled when they found out how much POTUS hates us too. Let's see... Pakistani Taliban said in 2009 they would do an attack on the White House that would amaze the world. Did anything happen in 2009 that weakened the American military, destroyed the economy or reduced our status a...
