  • What do you do?!

    You have four Abrams tanks. You're in downtown Baghdad and come under attack by infantry and light vehicles swarming in. Tank-busting IEDs are all over the place. Tall buildings all around. Air support is tied up elsewhere in a nationwide insurrection.

    How do you dream up such crap? you are living your little world of make believe again! No one can seriously answer such a question, without being in the actual situation, if you are lucky and you make the right choice, ON THE SPOT, you are laughing. Sitting at a computor is not in the slightest bit like real life, in real life there are often just moments between life and death!! This is not the spot to play your Arm Chair games.

        I'm sorry, I thought this was Arm Chair General. What was their address again?

            Easy.

            Kick myself in the head for going into a built up area with armor and no infantry. If I get back to the FOB, I will resign my commission or give up my rank, which ever appropriate, since I have no business leading men in combat.
            If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

              Call the Ghostbusters?

              Put your foot down on the accelator (OK tanks don't have acelrator pedals. Figure of speech.) and get out of Dodge as fast as you can!

                  Uh huh.... this one sounds kinda like patroling the Sunda passage when Krakatoa pops its cork, eh?

                  Well, in an ambush, you generally gun it and turn a 70-tons tank into the ultimate battering ram. Sounds better than running home and crying to mommy like a little REMF, anyhow.

                      You wake yourself up!

                      Paul
                      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
                      All human ills he can subdue,
                      Or with a bauble or medal
                      Can win mans heart for you;
                      And many a blessing know to stew
                      To make a megloamaniac bright;
                      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
                      The Pixie is a little shite.
