Thanks for posting. BTTT!
I was following this last night and found nothing updating the seriousness of the situation till this post. Thanks.
Apparently not. Don't know what to believe from the MSM propagandist now dayz, but looks as if something is going on.
Stopped dead, I can only hope.
Hopefully they all took incoming rounds center mass.
Dang how'd they get that so wrong?
Suicide bombers are not a long-term military strategy. I thought the Japanese taught us that.
Slow motion disaster unfolding as Bozo makes stupid faces in the mirror.
I read on another thread that the islamics tactic is to breach the main gate with suicide bomb vehicles...seems that they made 8 attempts...or more likely at different points on the perimeter.
If they can keep the news on this bottled up until the Friday afternoon news-dump time, they can be sure to get past this story like with anything else that happens on Fridays.
Maybe so but they left their position of just 10 miles away..Thats too f’en close
The propaganda value though the ‘priceless’. Its not about winning but about wearing the people at home down who lean on the pols for a quick finish. I think they also know the MSM will help their endeavor.
Eight suicide bombers attack base, and they’re all dead? I would call that a success.
Apparently not. Don’t know what to believe from the MSM propagandist now dayz, but looks as if something is going on.
Even on FreeRepublic there are trolls. (Not that I am accusing you Servant Boy 777 of being a troll)
I do not have time to vet every story and there are no sources I will believe without questioning
Reading the article, it states that ISIS is shelling the base - probably with equipment the Iraqi army abandoned.
ISIS is doing more than just sending suicide bombers.
They are actually using a version of our own doctrine - combat multiplier. No one action, be it artillery or suicide bomber, could defeat the marines...but in concert, they give a one/two punch. IOW, if the arty is heavy enough, ISIS may just get a suicide bomber in. And as we learned in Lebanon, one suicide bomber can kill a lot of marines.
I hope the marines are doing whatever they need to defend themselves.
Well, looks like the suicide bombers at least got a small part of what they wanted, you know, the suicide part, though the bombing part not so much.
