Basically I was talking about video games, and the general concept which can be applied to modern day warfighting in general. Being stealthy. Thats
why my friend was ranked #1 in many games, basic principles. Yes there are many factors to take into account other then that but isn't that a good
advantage to have? You can learn basically principles in games such as I did, and apply it to real word situations. Of course you can not know where
the enemys are at all times, but wouldn't it be helpful if you do know were the general area or where some are? Don't your think we invest in
drones, recon planes, sats, and spys for nothing?
Ex. Gulf War I. Spy sats and recon planes pointed out targets, while F-117's which were basically evading the radar at the time bombarded there
defenses. That is the point I'm trying to make. See without being seen. Along with Special Forces, they gather as much intel as they can and
"It's not what the bullet does to the guy that you're shooting at that messes with you. It's the women, the children, as well as the ever-present
threat of near-certain death."
Nothing will replicate real war as you say it I agree, walking over dead bodies, watching someone get blown up by a IED, etc. Would call it worthless?
Wouldn't training exercies such as Red Flag and any exercise in general be useless under your thinking because they don't show the horrors of real
war? Its meant to exercise your mind and get ready, training is the #1 most important factor in my book.
