so during the battle of Mogadishu other wise known as black hawk down there was a black hawk that got shot down
a large number of rangers and delta force operators risked there lives for the men that were already dead .(getting there bodies out so they can have a funeral)
during the confusion a second black hawk got shot down.
two men, Gordon and Shughart went by themselves and knowing that no one else was going to go get them for a long time, to the second crash site to defend the pilot.
both of these men were killed.

(so like five seconds ago some guy called our boys in uniform genocide robots so I gave him a story and I think its good enough for a post)

I don't really agree with that. There is no good reason to risk a person's life for a corpse. Yes a proper burial and all, but what if that risk doesn't pay off? You now have two dead people. Two lives lost, two families forever shattered, not to mention countless friends' losing that person, and for what? So we could bury some lifeless flesh? Not worth a second life to me. No matter how brave the first lost life was.

to flemsdfer and the bestpieever
I can understand what you are saying.
but as a person raised from a military family saddened is right
its not something you (or I) would understand and bravery knows no bounds
also the pilot of the second downed blackhawk survived so it wasnt a "total loss"
User avatar #16 to #15 - flemsdfer (07/23/2013) [-]
but if they never went on a risky mission everyone would have made it. I understand perfectly why they do it. I just don't agree with it. I don't condone sacrificing good men just to bury some other good men in the ground. An attempted rescue with heavy loss is just tragic, but this.....this was just a waste in my eyes.
#17 to #16 - doubledisme (07/23/2013) [-]
the mission was capturing a Somali warlord's right hand men
if they never gone on it a good deal of on armed civie's would have been shot for getting food
I dont understand why they did it ether but im not going to ignore the fact it was very brave and honorable
if there is only a small number of people who are willing to do this then its no wonder why people hate everyone so much
User avatar #18 to #17 - flemsdfer (07/23/2013) [-]
I meant the collection mission, not the first mission. Knowing it was extremely hostile doesn't bode well for sending more guys in. I could understand if they were volunteers, can't argue with what a man wants to do. It'd just seem to make everything worse by domino effect.
#19 to #18 - doubledisme (07/23/2013) [-]
I always wondered why the colonel gave them the green light to go in (it wasn't an order)
but to answer that question you are going to have to ask a combat vet (which is sorta rude unless you knew them for a long time and even then it makes them uncorfertable)
but I have done this before and they always told "I can't tell you its something you cant explain to another person, you need to experience it for yourself to understand"
User avatar #20 to #19 - flemsdfer (07/23/2013) [-]
I do understand it. I know plenty of people in the service and the whole attitude. I just look at lot of things from a logical perspective.
#21 to #20 - doubledisme (07/23/2013) [-]
and we are looking at it from a moral one
#22 to #21 - flemsdfer (07/23/2013) [-]
But is it moral to leave your family to fend for the rest of their lives without you so you could try and collect an already deceased friend? Is it moral to order someone to do that? These are just the questions I'm hung up on.
#23 to #22 - doubledisme (07/23/2013) [-]
is it moral to allow a friends body to get desecrated?
is it moral to try to get the body back so they can at very the very least rest knowing you risked it all so they can see them one last time (dead but still)
is it the right thing to turn the other check simply because they died ?
there are tons of questions that we as a species cant answer
User avatar #24 to #23 - flemsdfer (07/23/2013) [-]
I would feel extremely worse if I knew that my spouse/parent died and that their death caused more people to suffer like I was. To me, when it comes to risking human lives you have to be more careful than that. You only get the one life.
#25 to #24 - doubledisme (07/23/2013) [-]
I would feel better knowing it was worth something since Im single and in life waaas a part of something bigger then myself
and it was a good talk but the comments section isnt big enough for this
have a nice day
User avatar #13 to #12 - saddened (07/23/2013) [-]
I understand what you are saying. I am in the military, and I guess that this is one of those things civilians just won't understand.
User avatar #14 to #13 - thebestpieever (07/23/2013) [-]
They are your brothers in arms; we get that. But risking your life for a corpse is not heroism, you are just a good comrade. However, I believe that risking your life for your ideals (Whatever they are that get you in the military) is heroic by itself.

I didn't think they wore dog tags anymore..
#11 to #9 - tobloi (07/22/2013) [-]
Yep two, one for the body in case it gets left behind so the body can be recognised and one so that if they have to leave the body someone can pull it off to show as proof they are dead (the tag itself doesn't hold up in court)
#10 to #9 - doubledisme (07/22/2013) [-]
on their big toes
love black humor

*heroes

Actually there is one legally licensed hero in America.
#7 to #6 - doubledisme (07/22/2013) [-]
who?
#5 - feglol (07/22/2013) [-]
Guess that means soldiers are the only heroes.   
   
And the reason real heroes don't wear capes is because those who do aren't real.

I was not saying that but I can see how it is suggested
and im not saying they are heroes because they kill
im saying they are heroes because they risked their lives for other people
like firemen and police officers and doctors save lives too
now stop jumping to conclusions please

User avatar #3 to #2 - dabronydude (07/22/2013) [-]
i did not convey my meaning or put the right words,
so i deleted it, tired of all the arguments.
#4 to #3 - doubledisme (07/22/2013) [-]
well take a thump for honesty and turning the other check
(something I cant do and I commend you for it)
