    watched this story on cnn last week pa ata.
    galing din ng snipers ng insurgents.

    di ba around 900 lang yung casualties ng kalaban sa black hawk down? andami naman ata ng 9000 for 24 hours worth of fighting. para naman naging natural calamity yung american forces pag ganun kadami.

    kawawa naman mga kano at mga ibang pang lahi na sumali sa u.s. military namamatay sila, young adult pa yun mga iba dyan. dapat yun mga pinadala sa iraq yun mga may gusto ng gera yun family nila tignan natin kung hindi itigil agad yan. Sabi ng iba this is going to be like another vietnam, it will be. na pasubo na kasi ang U.S. dyan ang hirap din kasi hindi mo alam kung sino kalaban mo. Hindi ka rin pwede mag back-out ang u.s. kasi sila ang gumawa nito at may critisize sila ng mga U.N.

    hehehe 900 "lang" ba, that makes it even. they flattened an entire city just to get those soldiers out. 19:900. kahit 1:10 talo pa din.

    sabi nila around 6k na namatay sa US, compared to hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. and that makes it even also hehehe

    the 19 american soldier casualties (plus 70+ wounded) during the Mogadishu action is accurate. estimates of Somali militia dead range from 700 to 1500+

    a bit under 3000 US soldiers have died in Iraq according to confirmed DoD figures....i haven't heard how many opposing Iraq regular military and insurgent forces, but "hundreds of thousands" seems believable IMO given that the entire Iraqi military under Saddam Hussein was all but obliterated (or surrendered) by the time formal military hostilities ceased.

    When the Americans disbanded what's left of the old Iraqi military, may naiwan na security vaccum na hanggang ngayon the Americans are paying the price. Yung nagpalit ay yung mga rogue militias na may ethnic affiliation (Sunni, Shiite at Kurds). They are now blamed for fuelling yung civil war. Good job Uncle Sam!

    i think they should've just sent an assassination/strike team inside iraq to take out the hussein's. dapat ganun din gawin kay kim jong il. i also think i've been reading too much tom clancy. padala nalang nila si clark at ding, yari lahat yan.
