    There seems to be about as much movement in this battle then a WW1 battle. Sans the horrendous casualties. The average offensive seems to be in like ‘We’ll take this tank for a spin and…… ATGM just buzzed by our heads, turn around full speed, tomorrow’s another day.’

      It’s more like the battle for Stalingrad. Taking heavy casualties and barely making progress.

      • Barba_Papa

        Stalingrad and Monte Cassino were basically the two WW2 battles that closest resemble the ones in WW1. But I get the impression from Tripoli its that its the odd small skirmish, and then everybody goes back into the shade for tea and biscuits.

          To be fair, would you go and resolutely get your head shot off for any of the clowns/bastards in charge of all this?

          • Barba_Papa

            Depends on how I am supposed to get my head shot off. By running into no man’s land charging into machine gun fire, hoping they run out of bullets before we run out of soldiers, not that keen on that. Also depends on my motivation. If I believe in the cause I reckon I’d be more motivated to go out there then if I was forced to fight at gun point or if I think my generals have brains made out of mulch. Or how well I will be treated if I were to surrender or be captured by the enemy. On the Eastern Front at both sides you were forced to fight and either shot or hanged for desertion, while surrendering either saw you killed directly, or slowly starve from hunger. Not great choices.

            I was really talking about the “believing in the cause” part. I haven’t heard anything about any of the leaders involved in this stuff that would make me feel like believing in their cause. They all just want the goodies for themselves. So if I were in some gang that had been swept up into one of these armies (which seems to have been basically how they were made), and the opportunity came to partake of some tea and biscuits in the shade instead of going and getting shot at, I’d take it in a second.

          • Barba_Papa

            Completely fair reasoning.
