When I heard about the water pipe line was sabotaged I laughed.

I can't think how stupid the people that planted that bomb really where. Taken the assumption that they where apart of the guerilla resistance in iraq and most likely that saddam is hiding in the country leading it. It has to be one of the more stupid things sadamm has done.

It seems there are signs from the very beginning of the war that a planned resistance movement was in the works before US troops even entered iraq. At least it's my line of thinking that saddam took a gamble and dumped the evidence of any weapons of mass destruction and let the US forces take control over of iraq with relatively little resistance. In the hopes of hearing president bush declare the war over and start killing us soldiers to put pressure on the US to leave.

But taking a out a water line as well as destroying Iraq's oil pipelines is defiantly not a great way to go about this. Sure you are hurting the US that is buying iraq oil but your also seriously hurting Iraqi's economy in the process. I think this was done just to make sure iraq does not make any economic process because everyone knows a country is ripe for resistance if everyone is P.Oed and not commfty. Just one thing. If you cause that discomfort to your own people they might not like you. But that seems how sadamm has handled his people since he got into power. He gets things done through fear.

Sadamm. You can suck it! I'am comming for you, just wait a few years.

I'd prefer dumb enemy to a smart enemy you almost sound as if you wished they'd have killed somebody so you'd have a better rant, your fights get picked for you in the military you don't pick them. Being a proffesional soldier or sailor is a hard task and one that I am completely willing to master.

As for their attacks all I can say is the way of immediacy while effective cannot often be succesfull. You blow up a waterline here, shoot a soldier there and you build your mens courage and their morale, then you try more daring operations it's not a road it's a destination.

you should be:-p



well anyways I'am happy because I think this is a mistake made by sadam which means peace in iraq is one more step closer.

And I know I won't be able to pick who I kill but if it had to be someone. I would cross my fingures it would be sadamm, because although I diffently don't enjoy at all killing or seeing people die the things that man has done outrages me like watching 2 buglers execute 3 innocent people as they laid on their stomachs did. Just some people make me very upset and that's very hard to do.

Army 11x 101st airborn.

I wanted 18x but I had sinus problems at the time and the ******** doctor said no. That's ok since it's clearing up and I could change it, but talking to some people that are in sf it's a better thing to be in an infantry unit for a while and get some pratical experince under your belt.

Personal after the things I read about him I would like to see him dead like his sons then alive.

101st Airborne... that's a tough outfit. Good luck.

So are you planning airborne then rangers than SF? I figure I want SEALs right away, there's no point in screwing around, I want to serve my country and I see SEALs, Marine Force Recon, Green Berets, and Delta Force as the best ways to do it. I think you can agree it takes a special mind set just to want it. You have to want it for more than just the toys, the reputation, the status of being elite, I'm not even in yet and I can't explain why I want to do it to most people, the ex-SEAL I do know understands.

scary man. I feel the exact same way.


I guess we will both find out since that seems to be our direction.


I'am still second guessing myself on to join as 18x or wait till I get through my 3 year enlistment.

I read some reports they said the programm has had a high success rate of 74 procent. That's about 26% higher then people that apply for it while on active duty.

I dono why it's so high but maybe it's the dedication that people put into it. It takes just one year siting around as a civilian and 2 years of training and I don't think anyone wants to disgrace of failing.

I thought about seals but I never wanted to take my chances with the selection process or worry about any of that. I didn't want something to go wrong and be stuck with a tech job. That's why i joined army to be promised I would at least be in the training programm and have a shot at it.


So btw how they handle the selection process anyways?

There is a SEALs contract it's a pain in the *** to get it, they are selective and it took a miracle to get a waiver for my vision...they were impressed and I had to get my GED before anything.

I can explain wanting SEALs or any special operations team as this. It's about believing in the skills of your fellow operators, the men who trained you, yourself, you equipment, the misson, and your willingness to serve your country and take a bullet for the man next to you.

what are the special things they make you do?


For me it was an airborn check which failed because I'am sick now, two interviews, a back ground check, and I think that's about it. They make you take DLAB that lanuage test and score a 50 or 60 above on AVASP test, which where not a problem with me 84. I didn't have to worry about any medical issues besides being sick keeping me from poping my ears. I dont know the things you have to have to get in because I think it's all covered in the interviews. But stuff like not doing drugs(this the reason why I never did) before or no crimal offenses and going to college was a big plus. They ask you so many question in there like how well is your family supporting your choice or if you have a girlfriend right now. I didn't know at all what they where looking for in those.

As a non-grad out of school for five months I pulled a 98 which really shocked my recruiter who thought he had Forest Gump on his hands (I do nothing to supress this image of me with my mode of dress)

Isn't it funny how they want the smart people to volunteer to do all of the dangerous sh!t? The SEALs contract didn't involve an interview it did require me to take the GED and I had refrences from an Ex-SEAL and the former Sherrif of my county both saying I was in excellent physical condition and I was sharper than a razor and apt to cut myself (I thought they were going to ask if I forged my refrences) they did suggest that I possibly wanted to rething going SEALs becuase I qualified for so much with my GED in hand, I did have to do a retake becuase I may have gotten a 98 on my generals but I got a 49 on my mechanical and you need a 50, I got a 98 again and a 53 after studying auto-magazines for a week.

the reference part really sounds out there.

But then again I don't know if they checked up on any of mine. For normal jobs they sure as hell wouldn't bother, but then knowing sf they probly would.

98 is great score. I studied for a grand total of 4 hours because I had no time.

This is quite serious...

You were supposed to study? I literally walked in and took the test stood up before an 1 1/4 hours had passed and said I was done.

Does the Army make you do the coding?

I went in on a Wensday I'd called the recruiter and he was eager to meet me especially after I stated simply "I want to join the Navy." Apparently most people call and say "What's in it for me?" The recruiting post commander (not my recruiter) was so impressed that later he gave me a reference as well (I learned from my recruiter that they almost never did that) The references were for orignially getting in as a non-grad. That day I took the practice test and got an 87 they assured me you generally get a higher score on the actual test and it was true one day later I drove up to the recruiters and killed a few dozen trees (paperwork) and I got dumped at a motel with the other hopefulls...you get told to sleep in a strange room meeting several people who you end up hanging out with and then they expect you to wake up and take a test at 6:15. Excuse the hell out of me. Then they asked of all things if we were treated like proffesionals in a questionaire.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif they didn't even bother me asking me if they did a good job or not.


Well I got lucky and did my test around 1:00pm and all I had to do was run up there and take it.

The good old underwear olympics. Then the true humiliation was..."Bend over and spread you cheeks." That or the doctor (who didn't give the physical) who walked around with a limp wrist and chintsy gold jewelry.

He had enough jewelry to be a pimp no cane though. However the guy who administered the pis$ test wasn't exactly thrilled to be there as you could tell.

As ridiculous as it seems to most. I think by sabotaging their own infrastructure they can rile up the populace even more. Since the USAF, RAF and both navies did a pretty good job destroying their power grid and Iraqi TV likely by soft bombs in some cases and high explosive guided munitions in others that causes a large problem for the US and UK. They can't fly enough EC-130's to actually broadcast who is really responsible for the attacks across the whole. Yet even if they could it's not like everyone would be able to hear or see the messages since TV's and some radios will need electricity to operate.

An advantage for the Iraqi/Foreign resistance is that they can weave in and out of the general public and spread their message by word of mouth. Which goes a very big way when landlines, cell towers, electricity, radio, television and the internet aren't available in enough areas to supply information. They could get the people to believe Bush is the son of Satan working for the Zionists in Israel.
