">Which ruler is wise and more able?
*Judged on IQ and political experience : Saddam Hussein"
***This is the only point I will agree on.
">Which commander is more talented?
*no question : Saddam Hussein. In power for thirty years."
***The key word here, is "commander". So far, I think that Franks has certainly "commanded" better than Saddam, so the answer here is, the US.
">WHICH ARMY OBTAINS THE ADVANTAGES OF NATURE >AND THE TERRAIN?
***Wrong again. We use the advantage of night and hit the Iraqis before they even know we are there.
">In which army are regulations and instructions better >carried out?
*When you consider the friendly fire incidents, the answer is again : the Iraqi armies"
***Amazingly, friendly fire incidents happen in EVERY war. Seeing as how the Iraqis aren't even GETTING their instructions...again, the US wins on
this point as well.
">Which troops are stronger?
*What do you mean ? The USA has more bombs, yes"
***Better technology, better training, on average more physically-fit, and not motivated strictly out of fear. Again, the US wins this point as well.
">Which army has the better-trained officers and men?
*both USMC and Republican Corps
besides, dont underestimate Iraqi civilians. They shoot Apache's down"
***The Apache had a force-landing. It's unknown (at least last I checked) if it was combat-related. Also, even a caveman can shoot down a chopper
with a bow and arrow, if it hits right... There is little doubt that the US soldiers are one of the best trained on the planet, and OUR officers
aren't the ones surrendering entire divisions. Clearly, the US wins this point as well.
">Which army administers rewards and punishments in a >more enlightened and correct way?
*Both have head prize, same incentive system"
***Wrong again. I hardly think that an Iraqi who failed to follow orders would be treated in an "enlightened" way...unless you consider a bullet in
the head "enlightened"....
">By means of these seven elements, I shall be able to >forecast which side will be victorious and which will be >defeated."
***Yep, you don't need to be a mathemetician to figure this one out...
