Too long for one post. Part1:
To an American television audience, al-Qaida videos of pajama-clad killers in ski masks beheading captives look scary, of course. But a platoon of Rangers would slaughter hundreds of them in seconds if they ever approached Americans openly on the field of conventional battle or even for brief moments of clear firing. In Mogadishu, Somalia, everything boded ill for a few trapped Americans—outnumbered, far from home, facing local hostility in urban warfare—and yet the real lesson was not that a few Americans were tragically killed, but that the modern successors to Xenophon’s Ten Thousand or the Redcoats at Rorke’s Drift managed to shoot their way out and kill over 1,000 in the process.
Absloute rubbish.So you believe the hollywood version of events and expect the rest of the world to be so gullible.America does have superiority in warfare however, not because its soldiers are so well trained but because of technology.There is no air force in the world that could place as many air craft in the skies as America.Air superiority wins wars.Ask anybody who has been in the military.Any military.
