British forces useless in Basra, say US officials!
Read this Gobby Yank Wankers!-The British Army ARE the best soldiers in the world and that's a fact!-I've seen what the US Army is like first hand IN IRAQ and during my years of service in the British Army and I wasn't impressed at all!-If anything they could benefit by watching how we do it and then they might actually learn something about soldiering!-Ask any British soldier whose driven up behind a US convoy out there how confident they felt in the American "Topcover" NOT opening fire at them,even though we were in British uniform and British Army vehicles,the answer is not very confident at all as the tossers are renowned for shooting first and asking questions later!!!-They put a whole new meaning into the phrase "Trigger happy"!-You can just imagine "Billy Bob" from a National Guard unit in the deep south,whose parents are also brother and sister and had never been out of his state let alone the USA before and thought the "London Underground" was a resistance movement suddenly finding himself in "Arak" behind a 50 cal and a strange land rover that's not a Humvee homes into view,driven by people who are not wearing the uniform of the good 'ol US of A,well they obviously must be terrorists then so he'll just blow them away for the President!-It happens ALL the time!!And anyone whose been to "Camp Doha" in Kuwait will tell you about the paranoid US Army gate guard who would routinely search British Army vehicles entering the camp even though we were in full uniform with proper ID,blatantly WHITE and BRITISH and armed to the teeth,talk about idiotic!!!-Don't even ask about US contact drills they need to be seen to be believed,just open fire at EVERYTHING in a 360 degree arc and if you accidentally hit an innocent well Shit,they were probably thinking about turning militant soon enough anyway!-Then there's the subtle and ACCURATE US air force!-Talk about using a sledgehammer to kill an ant!-Because of their incompetence and stupidity bombing anything that moves,killing THOUSANDS of innocent civilians in both Iraq and Afghanistan they've done more to recruit new terrorists than Islama Bin laden could have ever dreamed!-Have these imbeciles never heard of IDENTIFYING YOUR TARGET BEFORE SHOOTING?-"Fire discipline" and "Rules of engagement" seem to be unheard of phrases within the US military,they should try it sometime instead of killing anything that moves!-A blatant example of this was the "Free fire zones" in Fallujah,where anyone seen in that area could IMMEDIATELY be fired upon!-What sort of inane and irresponsible rule was that?-No wonder the Iraqi people are fighting back so hard,I would too if some trigger happy "Hill Billy" had just blown away my mum and dad!-For a US General to have the bare faced gall to say that "There will be a stink about this that will hang around the British military," and "This thing is still winnable. They don't intend to cut and run" is BEYOND BELIEF!!-He also said "I'm not sure they did as good a job as they did traditionally. This isn't Northern Ireland. They thought they had a pretty good model but Iraq is a different culture"-NOT NORTHERN IRELAND!-What the Buggery Bollocks does HE know about Northern Ireland,it's ironic considering that the IRA got MILLIONS of Dollars in support from naive "Irish American" idiots over the years,whose irresponsible behaviour contributed to THOUSANDS of innocent people being murdered! and finally to say that "Basra has gone far towards revising the common American image of British soldiers as perhaps the world's best at counter-insurgency" is beyond a joke!-The reason Iraq and closer to home Basra is now officially a total Clusterfuck is because George Bush and Toadie Blaire took us into an ILLEGAL war with NO plan for peacekeeping and reconstruction,AGAINST the advice of their military advisers and,in the case of the USA,have exasperated the problem by heavy handling,using the wrong tactics and killing too many innocent civilians and in the case of our own government,NOT sending enough troops in the first place,NOT providing them with adequate equipment and resources and a complete failure to have a viable exit strategy now the time has come!-If the Yanks are going to throw the first stone then they'd better look in their own house first before they start blaming other people for their own inadequacies!
Spams - don't you just love 'em. Never really been that fond of the gung-ho inbreds anyway. Never ceased to amaze me how the 'land of the fat and the home of friendly fire' still find it acceptable to sing the praises of SF/IRA who they armed and funded. Keen on terrorism whem it was 3000 miles away - not so keen after 9/11.
USA in MOSUL - Patrols, some unarmored (because of lack of equipment) including foot patrols.
BRITS in BASRA - No patrols (absolutely none, but just around their bases) but weekly incursions which produce nothing. Absolutely no foot patrols.
USA in MOSUL - it used to be the most combative and deadly city other than the Triangle of Death... now it is one of the safest and people flock there from across Iraq for refuge.
Brits in BASRA - exact opposite. It was once the safiest city, since that is where the majority of troops arrived in the beginning. Now, it is a warzone...unsafe and bridled by insurgents. Nice job screwing up what the American BIG RED ONE did (they were the first there I believe)
In conclusion: Go ahead and get the fuck out of Iraq... I'll be going back in a few months and I think you guys have done less good and more damage.
P.S. - Nice job with the Iranians too. Your guys just surrendered without a fight. Everyone laughs at you. I lost a cousin to an IED, and a friend (wounded) to a sniper. We may be 'gung-ho' but at least we are soldiers. And those SAS guys are a bunch of jerkoffs. What the hell have they done? the American military has captured every high-ranking terrorist. Without the aid of the SAS (due to different communication channels)
