[quote] I'll take their opinion on what is best for the military over an ego-maniac who can't stop tweeting. [/quote] You'd take the opinion of the general officer class that has done nothing but take Ls for 20 years...? That's odd. ...

[quote] He's completely failed to reverse the social engineering Obama and Ash Carter subjected our military to like women in combat and trannies serving at all. Hell, he hasn't even made on attempt to fix it.[/quote] Of course he hasn't. He was a cuck all along. ...

[quote]In fact, when I was in, The Marines had no part of USSOCOM because they refused to give up operational command of their special operations units. That has changed and thus the reformation of the Raiders.[/quote] Things have changed. There are Marines all over SOF now. Even in traditional A...

[quote]I have an old HS friend who was a member of Delta (he's an SF instructor now). I do know that Delta's official name is the 1st Special Forces Group and is part of the U.S. Army. [/quote] 1st special forces group is at JBLM, Washington. [quote]It seems unlikely to me that Navy sailors or...

[quote]“The danger of mega-partisan identity is that it encourages citizens to care more about partisan victory than about real policy outcomes,” Mason told me. “We find ways to justify almost any governmental policy as long as it is the policy of our own team.

[quote]Court records filed by special counsel Robert Mueller describe how the professor approached Papadopoulos after learning of his role in the Trump campaign.

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]true that is cool. I have a good friend who trained Kurds and Iraqi soldiers around 2014 and 15. He stated the Peshmerga were decent soldiers and the Golden division for Iraq army was legit but not near enough of them. He liked the Iraqi Kurds but not the Syrian Kurds. Was cool to see the Pes...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]I've literally been speaking of Syria this whole time. I've even stated ISIS only had a quarter of Iraq as of 2017. Most of that was desert. [/quote] ISIS in Syria lost vast amounts of territory and capability throughout 2016. I am very very familiar with the campaign during that year. ...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]I'm not really arguing the situation in Iraq, I'm mostly speaking of Syria. Again, we had been saying for 2 years we are ready to take Raqqa and didn't do it under Obama. The Deir Ezzoir operation was mostly Syrian army, not Kurds. [/quote] :rolleyes: Sorry this thread didn't work out...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
These maps tell nothing of the actual situation. In 2016 they were in full desperation mode across Syria and in Northern Iraq. They were locked into a few economically important areas, and their leadership was being picked off at an astounding rate. The Iraq army had eradicated them all the way ...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]They controlled about 100,000 sq km in 2015. By 2016, they controlled around 60,000 sq km. That they still controlled large portions of Syria is irrelevant to my point. I'm skeptical of the claim they controlled a quarter of Iraq as well, as by early 2017 they controlled 45000 sq km in Iraq a...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]They were at their height in 2014 and 2015. They still controlled almost half of Syria and a quarter of Iraq in first of 2017 after 3 years of us fighting them. They may have lost some ground but they were still strong at the time. Once Raqqa fell and Deir Ezzoir, they started to crumble. [/...

re: Trump Defeated ISIS - MrCarton
[quote]When we talk ISIS, what are we talking about as far as actual numbers of "soldiers" (I guess maybe like at their height and now)? You seem to have a lot of insight on this, so I thought you might have a general idea, as I rarely see it discussed anywhere. [/quote] There are a few differen...
