RE: #7

These ill-equipped "elite" forces don't even have helmets.
The dude is wearing a helmet liner!
The Republican Guardsman set his helmet liner down to use to collect eggs in the chicken coop just before the air-raid sirens started.
As he hastily picked up and put the helmet liner back on, it picked up a picked up a piece of chickenshit and some feathers.
Enterprising US Marines dub the "elite" Iraqi forces as "The Chickenshit Brigade".

Oh, wow. You know, I never realized how incredibly POWERFUL our military is. No wonder Russia, France and Germany are gnashing their teeth and screaming 'stop!' They hate having the world see this display of American resolve and power.

Each individual in the American military is the absolute best in the world, BAR NONE.

Say, Diogenesis, why would a regime photographer take a photo of an Iraqi soldier wearing a helmet with a bullet hole in it, a tuft of hair blowing through? LOL Did a specops take that photo, do you think?

I worry about our troops. They've been going relentlessly, must be tired. We must pray for them, each of them.

You can what tell from the gun camera footage what type of Special Forces helicopter was used on the Presidential Palace attack. This was the MH-60L. The second image is from an MH-60L attack on a Iraqi SCUD during 1991.

Maybe I'm just half-blind, but that looks like a hole in that helmet with the guy's hair sticking through, not a piece of chicken poo. It almost looks like he must've gotten that helmet off a buddy that took a piece of shrapnel in his dome. Yikes.

Iraqi men smiling and waving to the incoming American troops. The Iraqi military has been encouraging the civilians to take up arms and fight American soldiers. The Iraqi civilians are not responding to the crumbling Iraqi government's call to arms.

Staff Sgt. Todd Morton, 27, of Cohoes, N.Y., looks through documents and maps found after 2nd platoon, Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) occupy a hastily abandoned residence in An Najaf, Iraq. The unit searched several buildings turning up uniforms, communication equipment and gas masks, vehicles , dozens of small and large caliber weapons, rocket-propelled grenades, U.S. style uniforms and other personal items, as well as uncovering at least two Russian-made BM21 rocket-launch systems.

Soldiers from the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment hold a position on a highway leading into Baghdad.

In this handout photo from CENTCOM in Doha, Qatar, residents of a small village near the city of An Najaf, Iraq, carry a pot full of water they just filled from a U.S. Army water tank, April 02, 2003. The town’s water supply is contaminated. The Army’s 422nd Civil Affairs Battalion coordinated the delivery of thousands of gallons of purified water.

Navy trainers go through daily exercises with a bottle-nosed dolphin, Wednesday, April 2, 2003, at Camp Patriot in southeastern Kuwait. Trained to spot lethal mines littering the sea floor, nine Atlantic, dolphins were flown into the Persian Gulf last month to help clear the British-controlled Iraqi port of Umm Qasr so that humanitarian aid can be shipped into the country.

Members of India Co., 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division, secure an Iraqi army outpost and training center near the town of Numaniyah, Iraq on Wednesday, April 2,2003.

Right on. I read some propaganda tripe about the Iraqis fearing American troops that bully them. Yeah, sure, that's why the Iraqi men are bringing out grandma and the kids to say hi. Most of them have a big grin that you couldn't slap off their face. They're sure happy to see Saddam's regime going bye-bye.
