Australia could take over the world. They could train the most elite fighting force known to man. How?

I can imagine Fox sitting there, a satisfied grin on his face as he knows he's about to die for his country. He feels proud that his one and only death can be taken in such noble sacrifice. Meanwhile, the soldiers under his command look at him with a look as if to say, "The ****, dude?"

Maybe its ****** up to say this but I kinda wish war was still crazy like that. Both of my deployments were just boring long patrols followed by like 9 mins of frantic ******** and fire missions and then right back to the boring patrolling.

War is still crazy like that, when the opposing forces are equipped just as good as you. Of course it's gonna be boring when you have all the technology in the world to kill a bunch of pre-historic towelheads.

Yea thats what I'm saying. even though its messed up I'd rather participate in a force on force war rather than this whole counter insurgency nonsense.

I'm a mortar gunner so lets say I'm not out on a patrol I'll stay on the cop or fob and if a patrol gets in some **** they call up the enemies grid on the radio and we make it rain on them hoes. Similar to artillery but faster more portable and more flexible.

I don't want there to be another world war. I'm not sure how to phrase what I mean. I guess I was just dissatisfied with the counter insurgency deployments. Its frustrating. Not really knowing who your enemy is and being afraid that any joe schmo could whip out an ak and start firing or walk into an ied. Its not what I thought being a combat soldier would be like.

That's because it's not a war, it's a occupation. The army is deployed in the middle east and they aren't fighting a war, they're just staying there picking out small threats.

Nah I guess in a sense it's way more difficult when you don't have an obvious enemy to charge. But war and military duties are seemingly more complex than a Call of Duty game, that's something that's easy to forget... Hmm.
I'd never be able to be a soldier, thanks for doing the hard work man

Knowing the american 1940s he probly said something along the lines of "Hold your fire!, hold your fire! the blacks only infintry is still locked in position and being overrun by crouts"

"You hear what he said! Fire at will!"
