You on the field info


If you were in the middle of a war in the sahara dessert and your entire platoon is dying on you. What would you do fight or retreat. If you fight what weapons would you use?

Retreating ain't an option. We'll fight with the weapons we were issued and trained with.

I'd like to say you fight where you are and with what ya brung . . . . . .

BUT

You didn't give enough information.

There ARE times when it is better to retreat and live to fight another day.

Like when you're about to be slaughtered by a much better armed and much more numerous force and the objective isn't worth the death of every swinging Richard.

Don't mean you're cowards - just smarter than the average bear.

First, what the hell is worth fighting for in the middle of the Sahara?

Second, I'd call for support.

If no support is available, I call for airlift out. There's no honor in getting slaughtered and failing the mission.

If no airlift is available, we fight, using whatever is available, until evac is possible or until we're all dead.

I hate to say this Navy Boy - "You're crazier than a Hooty Owl!". (Not meant as personal attack)

I hope that your response was meant to be a "tongue-in-cheek response.

I would hope someone doesn't shoot you in the back (it's happened in combat zones before). Troopers have a major heartache with someone who is so gungho that they don't value the lives of their subordinates. If you are the one in charge, then you DO NOT spend your troop's lives without a d*mn good reason and always look for alternate tactics before you spend lives like water.

If you want to throw away your own life and commit suicide, I'm quite sure that YOUR troops would hold back and let you do it. (I would) (and have).
