Also a retelling of the operation.
18 American troops vs hundreds of thugs. This shows the value of training.
With the way the military is being culled of real warriors by the insane libtard animal they put in charge of the military, I have my doubts this could turn out today as good as it did then. You'd have transgenders whimpering about "it hurts" or "I broke a nail", you'd have libtards having issues with ordered given, etc. A disgrace. G-d bless these Black Hawk warriors!
I read the book before seeing the film, and the film followed the book closely.
I do not believe there was any “Hollywood” embellishing in the movie of the events of that day.
These thugs may be crossing our Southern border as we type. Biden may be flying them at our expense to welcome our new "dreamers".
Blackhawk Down update ping. Thanks to Procon for posting.
There’s a Skinny in Congress, and Minneapolis has thousands of Skinnies as well.
And the value of armor and the value of not skimping on supporting arms. There is utterly no excuse there was no AC-130 in the zone.
Most of these brave soldiers died in no small part because Bill Clinton’s appointed Secretary of Defense (and former Wisconsin congressman) Les Aspin refused to send tanks into Somalia because of the “optics”. This was a Democrat produced disaster.
I hadn't heard about him refusing the tanks before; I thought the reason he had to resign was because he refused to let them deploy the AC-130s.
Ilhan Omar must be outraged about this.
Some time back, I received a link and password to preview a Fox Nation special called The Battle of Mogadishu A Battalion of Brothers.
I was surprised to see my sisters husband was one of the Army Ranger interviewed during the program.
Interesting that RACISM wasn't accused in the article, now charges of racism permeates our news every hour of the day.
Sadly, armored vehicles and tanks were denied, of that there is no doubt.
It’s infuriating that TWO Clintons are infamous for withholding air support in two separate sieges of American personnel.
Nearly 20 years later, the Pentagon is going to parade the upgrade because of the opinionated idiot, Genital Milley? Who knows — maybe it was in the works for years... or decades.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m in complete favor of the upgrade. But I’m also in favor of an upgrade for the persecuted Haditha Marines. Remember those disregarded by that other political jackass, Mattis?
Good news, but... Why and why now? The article doesn’t say.
