What an intense flick!

Never been on the tip of the sphere, your analysis?

Not interested in the politics but the military accuracy.

I've not seen this yet but will when it makes it to Netflix.

Have you read the book? It was much more accurate than the movie.

Not Klinton's finest hour for sure.

Everyone involved made sacrifices, and those two snipers that volunteered to take up "watch" over the injured helo crew are the first ones to come to mind every time I think about this event.

Great book, pretty good movie. We were heavy into this sort of doctrine in my time in the Corps. At least at the small unit level. Big Military still had us rushing the Fulda Gap and other such nonsense, but the smart ones (not me) recognized this sort of regional war with intense street fighting and non identifiable (i.e. no uniform) combatants was the future.

Our S/S Platoon Sergeant got a kill with the Barrett during the USMC's time in Mog'. Described it pretty graphically to us, believe he also mentioned it in a book he wrote.

They knew it was a s-hole then, still is.

Spheres are round, they don't have a tip

Maybe he's Polish. How do you keep a Pollock occupied? Put him in a round room and tell him there's a dollar in the corner. :rofl:

I read the book first and then watched the movie in the theaters. Lots of omissions from the movie, but that's probably expected. Sufficiently inline with the book to give the viewer a good idea of what happened.

I blame it on Bush. He sent the troops there.

We should not have been involved with the 'skinnies'.
