Post a link that proves me wrong.
Why? I'm not in competition with you.
I know what I saw on the news, and I'm sure many others also saw it.
My claims are as follows:
Australia has had zero combat deaths in Iraq for both Gulf War One, and Gulf War Two. We have lost six guys total, ALL from non combat related
Nobody denies this...so what's your point in claiming this? To try prove how smart you are? Your only pointing out the obvious...
Australia ceased ALL combat missions in early 2003 When Desert Storm,(the freeing of Kuwait by UN forces) ended.
This comment here proves what a head case you are, and how much crap you are talking.
Desert Storm ending in 2003? What ever type of Marijuana you are smoking, I want some.
The Gulf War, aka Desert Storm, started in 1990 and ended in 1991(officially 1995).
The Australian navy went home at the end of operation Falconer which ceased in late 2003. That blockade of Iraq became unnecessary when the US
military invaded and occupied Iraq.
Once again you are bringing up things WHICH HAVE NO RELEVANCE.
You claimed Australia saw no combat in the Iraq invasion. I and others dispute this. Stick to the topic or keep quiet. You will not succeed in
diverting attention away on to other matters.
I further claim there has not been a single joint US/Australian combat mission since 2003.
Wait, you said we didn't see combat in the Iraq invasion...now you are saying there hasn't been a single join combat operation since 2003(ie the
There's something severely wrong with you. I'm saying this as someone concerned, get help.
Either present some solid evidence of Australian combat in Iraq since 2003.
Or admit you are dead wrong.
When did I say Australia saw combat since 2003? In fact when I ever mention any specific dates of Australian combat operations?
What I said was, that Australia did see combat in the Iraq invasion.
That Australian SAS were first on the ground INSIDE Iraq.
How do you think they managed to get and stay in Iraq, when Iraq was on the verge of being invaded? Or do you think the Iraqis were sitting around
grooming their camels until they saw US/Coalition forces crossing the border? How naive are you?
It doesn't need to be plastered all over the news to know the SAS saw combat, when some very basic information on what they were doing, ie the fact
they were the first into Iraq, is known.
For a war that has been going on now for six years, the internet should be full of combat evidence and stories.of Australians in action.
But you will find nothing anywhere that Australians have been firing on insurgents, taking prisoners, or taking any casualties.
Because it haS NEVER HAPPENED.
So you under the impression that what the SAS do, you know the elite & secretive special forces, is going to be plastered all over the Internet for
weirdos like you to talk about? LMFAO.
One caution though before goiving any links.
Check your dates.
Yeah maybe you should check YOUR dates and actually realise the difference between the first Gulf War and the actual Invasion of Iraq like a decade
So just make sure anything you present as evidence of Australian combat activity in Iraq actually coincides with Gulf war two, which was late 2003 to
Oh, and I have had this exact argument with many other Americans on other Forums as well as this one. I have never lost because what I say is true.
I think you believe you never lost because you are mentally unstable, a schizophrenic, and regardless of what people say, you just keep believing what
ever sh** you come up with in your own little world. I mean christ, you actually believe the first Gulf War ended in 2003 when major combat operations
ended in 1991 and officially in 1995.
Sorry my friend you are dead wrong.
First, I'm not your friend.
Second, you should not post online when you are doped up.
ps, I'm not American. I'm born and live in Australia.
And believe me, you have no idea what the hell it is you are talking about.
I mean, there is something definately missing up top when you ignore simple facts.
RAAF flew combat sorties. We know this because they refused to bomb targets given to them by the USAF which they didn't view as a military threat.
RAN frigates fired their guns at Iraqi targets. We know this because it was in the news because it was the first time they had done so since
And then there is the SAS...first in Iraq behind enemy lines...if anyone thinks they just walked in and out without firing a bullet at enemy soldiers,
they are naive and have a lot to learn. The SAS was sent in because of the very nature of the mission was so dangerous, that only the most elite
troops would do.
If you require links that is your problem not mine. This stuff was all on the 5 o'clock nightly news. It was possibly even in daily newspapers across
The fact you missed some highly publicised events of our armed forces is not my problem.
