That's ridiculous. This guy gives no information about himself, what division and unit he was assigned to. There is nothing about that so called
transcript that gives it any credibility.
These fires were ignited BEFORE any troops got near them. Our Marines were pushing across that desert so fast that they exceeded the
expectations of the commanders. Our planes couldn't see through the smoke. Our helicopters had problems seeing through the smoke. The Cobra
didn't have laser designators at the time and had to rely on a seperate airplane so they can actually get a target, and even then they were firing
blind. Our transport helicopters had no clue where they were going most of the time. So we lose Air superiority and loss of visibilty which could
in turn kill many Marines. It also took years to put all those fires our, and millions of dollars.
