Vroomazoom, are you sure it was 5 days? I thought it was 2-3 days.
 
2003-04-18 04:20:36 PM  
BBCrackmonkey, agreed. Plus, FMJ rounds have the added advantage of reducing gazelles to a pile of feathers.

Emporer-Jay, "burds" is slang for penis? Did that slang word originate and end with you or did you grow up in a very strange neighborhood?
 
2003-04-18 04:22:19 PM  
A gazell is more or less the same body size as a deer. You could easily hunt them with an m-16 or any other military rifle.

as somebody else said, 30-06 would probably be the best to use on such a creature.

I don't even hunt, but living where I do you hear a lot about it. Some kind of hunting season started today and this morning I saw hoards of orange-vested hunters in their camoflage ford trucks and such.

Fishrockcarving, haha, those silly Gazelles, don't they realize they're flightless birds?
 
2003-04-18 04:22:56 PM  
burds=penis?? wtf

where did this come from??

IRAQ STILL ISN'T LIBERATED!!

"Ok I see what you did DisneyOnIce. Yes I exaggerated and you are using my own exaggeration against me. Fair enough, but right now the biggest problem facing a post-war Iraq is the sanctions and the fact that the UN is using them as a political leverage tool."

No - you have absolutely no clue as to what I am talking about, but you have the arrogance to assune you do.

I grew up in the 1980's. Nuf said.

Vroomazoom that was the funniest thing I have seen all week

"it is now unPC to call avians "birds" because it sounds like "burds" which is slang for penis"

Emperor-Jay, are you feather boy in disguise?

Bbcrackmonkey:

you are right. I figured i would count the couple of days that we sat outside the city, just in case.
 
2003-04-18 04:25:26 PM  
Honestly, if we were going up against anything but the crappy, outdated, already defeated iraqi army, the tactics used by CentCom would have lead to hundreds, if not thousands more deaths. Leaving a supply line that open is just friggin retarded, and my military experience doesn't go beyond Command and Conquer.

How most Marines would end up if they didn't join the service...
 
2003-04-18 04:26:20 PM  
Assume, I meant. Typo.

Youallmakemelaff:

The U.S. Marines use a special M-16A1. The 'A1' stands for Avian 1. They shoot flaming birds at 2000 feet per second. Very accurate and very deadly. When hunting game with the weapon it can leave some very undesirable after effects.

AndrewFish: Wow. Surprising no tv news organization has called you about being a war strategy consultant.
 
2003-04-18 04:28:07 PM  
DisneyOnIce, I know exactly what you are talking about. You are trying to bring up the potential backlash against the US occupying the country from the religious Shiites. I was merely stating that I disagreed with you and I stated what I felt the biggest problem currently facing Iraq was.

Simple enough?

Bildo:

are you saying that gazelles are flaming, and can travel 2000 feet per second? how could you hope to hunt this mythical creature with rocks?
 
2003-04-18 04:29:43 PM  
AndrewFish, yeah those Iraqis sure had a chance to slaughter us like dogs, had they been friggin omniscient
 
2003-04-18 04:30:01 PM  
Remeber when some on this board where predicting that the clever Iraqi genrals where letting US troops get into baghdad before springing the trap?

I wonder when thats gonna happen?

Obviously.

Try reading a book on military strategy before sounding overwhelmingly idiotic.

Remember when I could spell? those were the days.
 
2003-04-18 04:31:08 PM  
Who cares about Gazelles, feathers, riffles, Iraq, the media, whatever.

ON THIS DAY, JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS SO AS TO REDEEM YOUR WORTHLESS UNGREATFUL ASSES. I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY.

Or is America going to make gazelles the official food of Easter, like turkeys go with Thanksgiving and pumbkin pie goes with Holloween(Christmas gets candycanes).
 
2003-04-18 04:31:24 PM  
AndrewFish:

you are using your knowledge of command and conquer to judge the current war? You forgot about how we just left the tiberium unguarded, and how our harvesters are open for attack.

asshat.
 
2003-04-18 04:32:08 PM  
Yeah, it's true. I'm a general in the marines. Woo!

Vroomazoom:

"are you saying that gazelles are flaming, and can travel 2000 feet per second? how could you hope to hunt this mythical creature with rocks?"

No, I was referring to the assault rifles used by the US Marine corp. It fires the ultra secret avian round. The used to call it the 'bird' round, but it sounded too much like penis.
 
2003-04-18 04:32:45 PM  
But we had three minutes till the ion cannon was ready!

Ok, enough trolling, I'm going home.
 
2003-04-18 04:32:52 PM  
Shut UP, its a clever trick. Saddam is letting us take over his country as a ruse, and then at the last moment he is going to attach rockets to Iraq and blast it off into space, diabolically asphyxiating all of our soldiers.

I thought that was rabbit?

for future reference: any post by me asking if gazelles are mythical creatures is a joke.

I would agree with "some", not "most". The Corps does a good job of beating the sh|t out of you.

Bb.

I figured he was going to shave his mustache and run for president, since he did so well in the last election, he's a shoe-in if he just uses the same techniques.

I wonder if his campaign manager is still alive?
 
2003-04-18 04:35:44 PM  
Emperor Jay, how is Jesus giving his life for me such a big deal when he can just resurrect himself? I mean he freakin grows back! That's like a monkey sacrificing his hair for me.
 
2003-04-18 04:35:45 PM  
Bildo -- What is the air speed of an unladen, flaming swallow? Or are they firing (presumably screaming) eagles?

They could be special rocks....

i would ask why you clarified for me, but you shouldnt waste your time. it really doesnt matter.
 
2003-04-18 04:37:03 PM  
BbCrackmonkey ..."I stated what I felt the biggest problem currently facing Iraq was."

And you said that: "the biggest problem facing a post-war Iraq is the sanctions and the fact that the UN is using them as a political leverage tool."

What sanctions are you talking about? The ones imposed by the U.S. in 1992? If so, why were they imposed?
 
2003-04-18 04:37:39 PM  
Korovyov, don't know, but the unladen flaming gazelle smells like burning feathers.

Bass555:

special rocks? like crack rocks?
 
2003-04-18 04:38:02 PM  
Shut UP

Gazelles have more meat on them. Rabbits are all sinuey and 50% rabbit dropings(which is where the concept of the Easter Bunny came from: a rabbit hopping around leaving his dropings behind which starving children, delirious with hunger, mistook for chocolate).
 
2003-04-18 04:38:51 PM  
"The ones imposed by the U.S. in 1992? "

Ummmm, those were set up by the security council, which is why the US went to the UN asking to lift sanctions.

Christ. It was the UN. What's wrong with you people.
