    I think eventually we should find out. But it's not as important as the fact that he's dead.

    No, definitely not. This was a team effort, no matter who was the one(s) who pumped bullets into the big guy. We keep the personnel of our special forces teams secret for a reason.

    Oh, and you should be able to add a poll, it should be an option under "Thread Tools" at the top of your OP.
    I totally agree.

    Thanks I did add a poll

    you nonconformist you!
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It does answer your question. My little story is complete. He didn't see combat either.

    That's nice, but you were a squid (no offence). We were elite infantry - shock troops. We spent weeks and months in the field training to fight. Ambush, move, ambush, move... all night long. We were cold, hungry and tired for days at a time as we honed our killing skills. We were not interested in wasting government money and we were anxious to put our hard training to use. Each time we got "called out", we hoped it was a real mission. Maybe you liked training and training with no real action because you just pushed buttons that could kill many civilians, but we wanted to use the very hard work we put in - up close and personal. If anyone in my unit did not want to fight - for real, they were invited to leave.

    Our cadance went like this: "1, 2, 3, 4! Somebody anybody start a war!"


    ps. When I say "we" I mean troops, not REMFs.
