Not even a Marine, but they're objectively the best trained combat force in the U.S military. Now, best equipped, no. Most intelligent, no. But I would trust a Marine by my side in a combat situation before I would trust a soldier, seaman, or airman.
>>28695608 No, I'm just basing that off of the amount of combat training for each branch. 75th Rangers, now they I would most certainly trust to be proficient killers. Better than Marines I would think. But your basic Army unit? Maybe. But true, I haven't served, so I don't know for sure.
>>28695671 >No >I'm just basing that off of What you've seen in videos and read on the internet?
Marines have guts, I can promise you that. But they are idiots. I knew many prior service Marines in my time in the Army, and they all said the same thing I'm telling you that they were tough, but stupid.
>>28695573 Aren't Marines the reason why you always lose your wars? It seems they are great at storming in but dogshit at holding territory. They were the ones who goofed up Vietnam and I swear they lost Fallujah in the Iraq War?
>>28696888 When I was at 29 psalms with the marines there were army units training there.
That said the Marines are faggots and ITB was a joke. I wouldnt be surprised if it's only been improved by having more indoctrination bullshit and even less actual learning to fight.
Then god help you if you end up somewhere fucked like 2/9. The Marines need to go the fuck away and the Air Force needs to fuck off and just go to space and give their air fucks to the army and navy. Washington is too busy accessorizing to do anything practical though.
Marines are fucking idiots. I was talking to a Marine the other day about AR vs AK and was explaining what I saw happen to AR's in my company in my deployment in Iraq. Sheered lugs, broken bolts, shit head space, jamming for idiots that wouldn't clean their rifles everyday etc etc.
He said "it's because Army doesn't know how to take care of their weapons!" Asked him how often an armorer came to visit his unit in deployment, and he said "never, we didn't need armorers to check our weapons, we're MUHREENS!" His MOS? A drone mechanic, probably never left the wire, ever. My MOS? a tanker, left the wire almost everyday, but we didn't have tanks so we did infantry type shit (no we weren't infantry for you "fuck you, you're not infantry, you fuckin' POG" fucks out there, I was a tanker and knew how to do your job plus mine).
Marines are like that big retard from "Of Mice and Men". They are big retards who are strong and brave, but don't know shit.
>>28695266 >that high pitched whining >constant voice breaks
this is the actual war face of the us muhreen.
>be mohamed >sitting in my mudhut >here a high pitched, crackling scream >run outside as I assume my 11 year old son has been kicked trying to fuck the goat again >full squad of muhreens calling me a pussy bitch over my compound wall >just have enough time to chuckle to my self before the air force JDAM vaporises me
>>28695266 This made my eyes roll so hard I lost my balance for a second there.
Seriously though, I've met some fine Marines and I've met more than my fare share of these dudes. My only big critique of the MC is that fact that they absolutely suck at occupation duty. >but they're not for that! They're for kicking ass and fucking shit up! Except that's not how they're deployed. I can't tell you the amount of time my unit wasted in Iraq playing nice with the locals and calming that shit down to a point where we weren't constantly getting into skirmishes outside the wire only to then have it fucked up by jarheads. The Marines took over our FOB in this one shithole (Sadr City) and in the span of 2 weeks proceeded to shoot the interpreter, hit a wedding procession with a .50 cal. All that time grinning at the Iraqis while they grinned back and waited for an excuse to raise hell, all that fucking effort brown nosing the fucking imams... shit was gone and the neighborhood went to hell cause of muh warrior culture
All these butthurt POGs and boot grunts who actually give a shit about interservice rivalry. It's ok, once you've deployed a couple times, worked with a few different groups, you'll see that everyone has ups and downs, and that every story has multiple stories. All you can do is lock your own shit down, make sure your guys are trained and be a professional regardless of what other people are doing.
"Don't talk big, BE big."
Oh, and faggot army tanker is a faggot. I don't pretend to be a doctor because I know some first aid, don't pretend to be a grunt because you got tasked with some easy security patrols around a major FOB a couple of times.
>>28702260 >don't pretend to be a grunt because you got tasked with some easy security patrols around a major FOB a couple of times.
I was outside the wire every other day.
I don't pretend to be a Dr either, but at least everyone in my plt knew how to work a fucking tourniquet. I just feel bad for that Marine who died because all his friends were fucking retards and and gave up and let him bleed out on the way back to the FOB from a simple leg wound (right above the knee). But yea, know Marines have "better training." Sure. I know there are some real fucked up Army units too that have done shit like that, and worse, but these people spreading the "muh muhreens" are better meme need to stfu.
The fact is, all the branches are filled with fucked up units and people. There are fucked up Army units, and there are fucked up Marine units.
if marines are such idiots, why are they always the first sent in? why are they in charge of embassy security around the world? why are they the president's own force (that he can deploy without having to ask congress)?
Pick one. Do 8 hour patrols, 8 hour post, 8 hour QRF and repeat for 7 months in Sangin, then bitch.
As for the guy bleeding out, depending on when you were deployed they may have had the super shitty tourniquets that were prone to breaking. We had one Ssgt that came from another unit and he showed us the AAR from his plt where a squad went through 10 of the fuckers in 5 minutes on a cas. Fucking 10. The shitty plastic would weaken over long sun exposure and snap when tightened down. It very well could have been the guy got hit by a sniper, tried to apply his tourniquets while the rest of the squad maneuvered, it/they snapped, he bled out. And before you say "hurr, go get him!" You don't when you don't know where the sniper is. It's shitty, it fucking sucks, but it's better than losing yet another guy. That's just speculation, but it has happened. Every marine gets trained in basic first aid. Every grunt gets it hammered home along with a million other things. Shitty equipment is just shit that happens, something you can sympathize with from your earlier posts.
And yes, there are shitty units and there are squared away units. I can say this though, I'd take even an Army POG over any foriegn military because jesus christ. You haven't seen shit until you've watched British Army grunts drop gear and put on running shoes to go for a jog around their OP. Motherfuckers went to the same spot every time too and were shocked, shocked I tell you, to find IEDS all over that spot after a week. And don't get me started on Jordanians, Georgians, Estonians and everyone's favorite, ANA and ANP.
>>28702734 >>28702734 >I'd take even an Army POG over any foriegn military IDF are the only seriously professional military outside of the USA. what's amazing is how they manage to do it without all of the screaming, hazing, 'muh military trudishun' bullshit
>>28702747 I'll believe that when the IDF aren't fighting literal retards armed with rocks. Until then, they just put on pretty training exercises. They did well when outnumbered back in the 60s and 70s, but it's been awhile since they've conducted any kind of major operation against an actual threat. And no, Palestinians don't count.
>>28703603 >>MEME >Why would ANYMEME want to meme in a shitty meme branch of a meme's memetary that literally memes their recruits in the meme on a memekly basis? >So basically, my "memecuse" for not being in the MemeDMeme is because I can be in the Meme Corps; a real military force full of bad memes!
>>28703051 >been awhile since they've conducted any kind of major operation against an actual threat >constantly at war against guerrillas >Operation Opera >1982 Lebanon War >Operation Mole Cricket 19 >Operation Accountability >Operation Grapes of Wrath >2006 Lebanon War >considered to be one of the finest military forces in the world
>>28695608 Being a 8404/0321 I find your story really hard to believe. Every marine in a work up has to do live tissue with pigs. They also have to do TCCC for a week. Corpsman train their Marines pretty well in emergency medicine. Out of any Corps the Corpsman hold the most MOH's at 22. We take fucking pride in our combat medicine and training our Marines.
