    Of course, from the one who beat the 4th strongest army in the world.
    Oh, and also from the one who forced the mighty US to perform a tactical withdrawal.

    Considering how much PLA lost in manpower, the laugh is on the PLA.

    We can always debate the professionalism of Muslim armies, if you like. You really do not want to go there.

    Terrible analogy. You essentially compared soldiering to shit. This is a military oriented forum. What are you doing here if you have such contempt for people like me? By they way, I am USAF veteran. F-111 (Cold War) then F-16 (Desert Storm). I understand the military better than you do.

    IMO the Turkish army is too slow in their advance. This might prove to be a massive issue.

    Forced? No. If you are referring to Viet Nam...

    In Viet Nam, the US/SVN alliance was fighting for partition like Korea. NVN was fighting for unification. Different political goals require different military tactics. Eventually, with the goal of partition, the US was bound to 'lose' and the loss was political, not military. Clearly, you have never served and never received any kind of military education.

    If they were losing so many men then why a stalemate?

    How could a stalemate occur in a war?

    ****Considering how much PLA lost in manpower, the laugh is on the PLA.****

    China a country deeply wounded by WW2 from 1937 on wards with no comparison with US equipment threw you back all way from Yalu river back to the 38th parallel?....

    embarrassing...

    if you want to talk about casulties then German won WW2 as they an incredible kill ratio... especially again US tanks.. laugh on US army?.. ok

    ***We can always debate the professionalism of Muslim armies, if you like. You really do not want to go there.***


    RE: Sure... go ahead.. lets see

    Pakistan Army : defeated all organised terrorism defeated TTP.
    US Army : Failed to defeat Afgan Taliban, almost concluded peace talks... heck they were going to camp david...

    ***Terrible analogy. ****

    RE: in your head.. sure


    *****You essentially compared soldiering to shit. *****

    Re: If perform like shit.. you should be called shit.

    ***This is a military oriented forum.***

    RE: No shit?..


    ***What are you doing here if you have such contempt for people like me? ****

    RE: lol... i think your imagination is running a riot.

    ****By they way, I am USAF veteran.*****

    RE: Ok...


    *****F-111 (Cold War) then F-16 (Desert Storm). *****

    RE: nice to know..


    ********I understand the military better than you do***

    RE: You win debates by the strength and logic of your argument... showing how long your CV was doesnt help.

    Sure...By the human wave tactic. Not much military brilliance required there.

    For China? Definitely, considering now there are two Koreas with the South the better half.

    We failed to defeat the Taliban? Buddy, Pakistan failed to control territories that made the Taliban possible.

    Tell that to your air force who trained after US.

    Yup...No shit that this is a military oriented forum. Must have surprised the shit out of you.

    That I am your better...

    And mine just spanked yours.

    LOL to the way you state your argument, to the way you try to bash your CV to make your argument better while reality pales in comparison. That 's why you no longer have a country.
    Your well-trained army loses anyway, and they will keep losing.
    But, who cares, as long as you win in an argument. The same fate happened to South Vietnam.

    And the human wave tactic? clearly, it's you who knows nothing about the military. That's military 101
    Just a fanboy with propaganda texts.

    RE: They fought with what they got.... got the job done..


    ***For China? Definitely, considering now there are two Koreas with the South the better half.***

    RE: How?.. UN mandate was up till 38th parallet.. you pushed your luck approaching the Yalu river provoking the Chinese to respond. They threw you back.

    embarrassing isnt it?



    ***We failed to defeat the Taliban? **

    RE: Yes... you are having talks with them in Qatar... a winner doesnt have peace talks.. just ultimatums on surrender terms

    didnt they teach that to you in GI Joe School?






    ***Tell that to your air force who trained after US.****

    RE: Were we not talking about soldiers?....... now we hop on airforces?...

    ok

    and?....... PAF also had strong influences rom it;s inception... polish , RAF and West German instructors some of them were WW2 aces f.



    ****Yup...No shit that this is a military oriented forum. Must have surprised the shit out of you.****

    Re: Yup they way you wrote i thought was I in a wet dream thread.......like "US army does Taliban"......






    ***That I am your better...***

    RE: from what i see.. a solid No .

    But keep trying.. one day who knows?






    ****And mine just spanked yours.****

    RE: delusions are comforting for the wounded soul......

    It was inevitable from 2015 when Obama defence dept started the whole SDF and started shipping weapons to them. Trump has just enjoyed being the one who ‘finished’ it.

    I asked you in the spirit of a serious discussion, not (yet) a debate. It seems you are not interested.
