Desert Storm is fucking insane, and if it wasn't for the political landscape wanting to only take a huge shit on US affairs in MENA, it would be hailed as an exceptional victory with its speed and ferocity.

Fuckers like you are traitors to the Republic and the Enlightenment ideas it was founded upon. The Founding Fathers believe we should stay out of war because it's fucking retarded. But then 200 years later faggots like you wear "infidel" hats while saying the founding fathers would have been republicans.

What, you mean a functioning Democracy and an ally in the region?

That our useless current President abandoned and allowed for ISIS to btfo several of their biggest cities without reacting for fucking months?

Obama let go to waste an entire decade's worth of effort for literally nothing. At least if he was secretly hoping for further lucrative destabilization of the region and terror attacks that allow for the implementation of Federal overreach in the name of security I could accept his gross inaction at least as semi-reasonable even if treasonous, but I can't even honestly bring myself to give him the possibility of credit for that. He's a worthless do-nothing and a stupid faggot.

The only representation Sunnis get is from their own militias.

>an ally in the region
Only because the US has forced them to be dependent. Also, the Shia government is much more supportive of Iran which, in your eyes, is probably an enemy.

ISIS wouldn't be here if idiots like you weren't so supportive of absolutely fallacious wars.

Fuck you.
>>
>>652627

Fuck you dipshit, Iraq was in no fucking way a fallacious war and your lack of understanding on the subject is readily apparent.

>The only representation Sunnis get is from their own militias.

Bullshit, just because they're a minority doesn't mean they aren't represented.

I think the biggest mistake Bush made was the complete deconstruction of the Baath legal and military structure and it's total outlaw though, way too severe.

>Iran which, in your eyes, is probably an enemy.

To be honest I wish they weren't and one of the major reasons they still are is because our government is in bed with the Saudis to the tune of billions. That and Israel is still a thing. I've read a few academic papers that came out of Iran and they've got a lot to offer to the international community.

That said, they are lead by a radical retard cleric who has wished death upon us and they themselves have declared us their enemies. And so they are.

Though I guess in your la-la land fairy brain you somehow think that literal death threats somehow aren't casus belli.

that's what you get if you're traveling with armed soldiers and Americans and Canadians can touch them
>Activist and former United States Attorney General Ramsey Clark alleged that these attacks violated the Third Geneva Convention, Common Article 3, which outlaws the killing of soldiers who "are out of combat."[9] Clark included it in his 1991 report WAR CRIMES: A Report on United States War Crimes Against Iraq to the Commission of Inquiry for the International War Crimes Tribunal.[10]

>On the morning of 3 July, Vincennes was passing through the Strait of Hormuz returning from an escort duty.[2] A helicopter from USS Vincennes reported that it received small arms fire from Iranian patrol vessels as it observed from high altitude. The cruiser moved to engage the Iranian vessels, in the course of which they all violated Omani waters and left after being challenged and ordered to leave by a Royal Navy of Oman warship.[18] Vincennes then pursued the Iranian gunboats, entering Iranian territorial waters to open fire. USS Sides and USS Elmer Montgomery were nearby. Thus, USS Vincennes was in Iranian territorial waters at the time of the incident, as admitted by the US government in legal briefs and publicly by Admiral William Crowe on Nightline.[19][20] Admiral Crowe denied a U.S. government coverup of the incident and claimed that Vincennes's helicopter was over international waters initially, when it was first fired upon by the Iranian gunboats.[19][21]

>>652994
Infiltration tactics became human wave attacks if there was no penetration on the enemy's defenses as the commanders would continue to send units to attack the same hard point in hopes of creating a breach

Plus PLA troops used civilian shields to soak up nationalist ammo while advancing on their positions. This can be described as a human wave tactic since it requires large number of people to attack a hard point head on.

So in essence they did use human wave tactics, but not in a way people believe it to be.

I'm actually doing a battle analysis for class on the Battle of Derne. It was crazy. A 50 day forced march over 600 miles of sand with one Army officer, one Marine officer, 8 Marines, and about 500 foreign mercenaries.

The First Barbary War was the United States' first instance of leading a coalition of foreign military and mercenaries in a series of decisive joint-force operations on the other side of the world. Good thing they were fighting a combination of Arab army incompetence and African warlord disunity.

>Before the Dogger Bank incident, the nervous Russian fleet fired on fishermen carrying consular dispatches from Russia to them, near the Danish coast, without causing any damage due to their poor gunnery.[7]
>After negotiating a non-existent minefield, the Russian fleet sailed into the North Sea
>More serious losses to both sides were only avoided by the extremely low quality of Russian gunnery, with the battleship Oryol reportedly firing more than 500 shells without hitting anything.

It's funny because you can look at Russia's performance in 1904, and their performance in 1994, and it's the exact same problems.

Granted, the First Chechen War was more tragic than comic, compared to the Ruso-Japanese War, but that's what happens when you have the gang that couldn't shoot straight fighting a war in a built-up, heavily populated area.
