Civil War time travel question/debate
Help settle a debate.

If 100 Navy Seals went back in time to the start of the civil war with standard issued equipment/gear, machine guns, AK's and unlimited amount of ammo, would they win the civil war?

It would be either them vs the North or them vs the South, not vs both.

-I said they would.

100? No question.

What about 10 SEALs?

Yeah I brought this up too, I think the numbers might get them, so I upped it to 100.

Not sure about 10...Someone would eventually land a shot with a rifle or cannon. Don't think 10 could make it

That would be a badass theme for a video game.


But make it you and 3 other SEALS. Maybe frame it to where you and three other SEALS get sent via time machine to the Revolutionary War or WWI or something like that so you're not shooting Americans.

Your bitching is the reason this thread sucks. It's a hypothetical. Some people enjoy debating things like this. Calm the frick.

Am I going to have to be the first person to say no?

You need to elaborate on what kind of equipment they have. If it's just infantry weaponry (assault rifles, machine guns, snipers, explosives) there's no way they'd win.

If you're talking helicopters and airsupport, you obviously have a different conversation. (or, really, no conversation at all)

I've often wondered if one guy with a sniper rifle could change the outcome of a mid evil battle

One shot and the king is dead.

You do realize time travel doesn't exist right? It was a random dumb drunken bar debate, damn.

100 snipers, and I think that war would have been over in short order.

Yeah, just assault rifles, machine guns and give them snipers too.

No explosives, helicopters, bombs or anything like that.

Not a chance in hell, then.

Can't believe I'm the first one to think that. Not even close IMO.
