Re: Ranger Medics in Combat?

I want to make an observation. I agree with Ranger Snafu. Some medics, (we use to call them Operational Medics in the SADF), were the most humble, quiet professionals I've ever had the privilege to work with. Ops. Medics were all trained to be airborne. They went into all the hot zones, and saved ma...

Re: What's your take on North Korea?

Without all the info, my observation is that it appears as if the new US Presedent was tested by the N Koreans and nothing was done. It appears as if the US Presedent is not willing to stand strong on this issue or other similar issues. That in turn gave Iran the “go-ahead” to do what ever they want...

Army post shuts down for anti-suicide event

Suicide is a real issue and it occurs in all the units in the Army's of the world. Not many choose to address the problem. Well done for the USA Army to at least recognizing and addressing the problem. Fort Campbell, home of the Army's 101st Airborne Division, is holding a three-day "suicide stand-d...

SOCOM taking best troops (OP/ED)

A Loss You Can't Refuse May 22, 2009: In the U.S. Army, battalion and company commanders know that what makes their units work real well are a small percentage of their troops who are, well, really good, dependable and able to take care of things. Thus the commanders dread the annual visit by the SO...

Re: Mathematics of war

Yes I know you can “look outside the window” to understand the type of warfare the enemy army is conducting. I am a big fan of battlefield experience that lead to adjustment of tactics. So often army's learn lessons on the battlefield and do not adjust their tactics to compensate for shortcomings. ...

Re: Mathematics of war

I agree DrD. If I understand this video correctly, the formule they compiled can show-up in what phase the enemy army is i.e. a guerilla army or a more structured conventional type army. Once you know this information you can do all kinds of things, like adapting your own combat style to counter the...

Mathematics of war

Not the best place to post this. Maybe the mods. can open a "technical" part to post items like this. For those who are not afraid of Maths or statistics, here is a interesting video on the "predictability" of war. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emn28FrJ6CI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return fa...
