Democracy There are many differences between the two countries in their approach to democracy. The German system gives more power to the parties, since they decide which candidates to place on the list from which the parliamentarians will later be drawn. Parties finance the election campaigns; the candidates themselves do not need to raise substantial amounts of money.
This lie is so bold and blatant that many have come to accept it as true, even though official documents tell another story. What does hold up is a story of incredible devotion, dedication and heroism on the part of the Americans there, and of intelligent, bold and fearless attacks on the part of their enemies.
Then, that most of the killed were not using M4s at the time they were killed. Then, that those that were did not have jammed rifles.
Getting defeated was not a survivable option. COP Kahler viewed from an aircraft, looking south. It is the tan area at center. This was the plan to which COP Kahler was built. It was opened just days before the attack. Why, then, does this story persist? It persists because it fits a narrative much beloved of the anti-military writers of the Acela Corridor, many of whom are unsophisticated and trivially spun by lobbyists.
In a recent article by a defense-industry lobbyist and retired general, whose conflicts of interest they have never disclosed, they printed: The M4, the standard carbine in use by the infantry today, is a lighter version of the M16 rifle that killed so many of the soldiers who carried it in Vietnam.
The M16 is still also in wide use today. Some of the soldiers present later reported that in the midst of battle their rifles overheated and jammed. The Wanat story is reminiscent of experiences in Vietnam: The M4 is a lighter version of the M16 Rifle, yes, and the Corvette is a modified version of a car introduced in So far, so good.
At least he notes that they did fight off the attack; a lot of careless reporters say they were overrun. You see what the author is doing there?
You could argue that bad training, worse officer leadership in the planning phases the officers provided magnificent leadership under fireand incredibly-bad site selection were responsible, instead.
But in the end, they were infantrymen in a hard fight with a determined enemy, and guys get hurt doing that. This is a long one. Thanks for hanging with us. The position in its environment, although overheads like this minimize the effect of the physical relief on the position.
They needed to be on a road, both to interact with the locals in accordance with COIN doctrineand to bring up their supplies. The enemy attacked from the high ground, and occupied all the buildings you see here. Note very short ranges! They all name it Kahler, after a respected platoon sergeant who was murdered in a green-on-blue attack.
It was well-equipped with crew-served weapons, but possibly on the least defensible ground imaginable — it makes Dien Bien Phu look positively defensible. A wireframe shows just how bad the terrain was. Here are some quotes from reports and papers on Wanat. Initially, they seem to support what the grizzled old lobbyist is saying.
From a draft historical report that is available at the Washington Post: It would not fire, so I lifted the feed tray tried clearing it out and tried to fire again.
Phillips was in the main COP. SPC Bogar fired approximately six hundred rounds at a cyclic rate of fire from his SAW when that weapon became overheated, and eventually jammed the bolt forward.
Basically it just got way overheated, because he opened the feed tray cover and I remember him trying to get it open and it just looked like the bolt had welded itself inside the chamber. His barrel was just white hot. The other Mk grenade launcher jammed, which they are prone to do.
Thus, the American defenders at the main COP had only a single. It is to the credit of the Chosen soldiers that they maintained at least fire parity from the COP. As a result, numerous soldiers experienced weapons malfunctions, just as SSG Phillips had faced at the mortar pit.The objections I hear to polyamory tend to separate into two narratives sharing a common thread.
