Okay not a movie.



I have since learned the name of uniform he is wearing. It was called Austerity Pattern Battledress, from what I understand.

I will be interested in seeing how this series mini-series pans out. It is the first mainstream production that focuses on characters from a unit, time-period, and location where I was actually at on one of my deployments. (That is, in Eastern Baghdad with the 1st CAV in April 2004).

I am going to try very hard not to focus on how clean and perfect their uniforms are, ect ect. And instead focus on the story and characters, as I am assuming they are based on actual people with whom I have served with laterally.

These type of shows usually disapoint me, focusing most of their energy on the crying moms and wives, and over-emphasizing moments of emotional weakness in the characters, while under-emphasizing moments of strength (and even then only in the context to which the writers use it as contrast for the moments of weakness to be focused on later).

I am hoping Nat Geo will do better than that, as they tend to focus on the documentary-element to a lot of stories.

At any rate, I have been told the "Mahadi Army" uprisings in april and august of 2004 we said to be some of the most intense nflicts of the entire war. They were being compared, in their immediate aftermath, to the Tet-Offensive in Vietnam, both in scale, and rates of attrition. (Difference being, the Coalition has gotten a lot better at battlefield-medicine... around 80-85% of the KIAs in Vietnam would have been WIAs in todays environment with the same wounds.)

---------

This fight was actually what sort of shaped my combat experience down the road. Even though we were Infantry, it was expected most of the National Guard battalions that were attached to 1st CAV would be focussing on humanitarian missions. We ended up being plunked down into the battlefield right in the middle of a very chaotic situation, side-by-side with troops who had been there a year already and were ready forma break. I guess we performed well enough, we ended up operating from a small forward camp and took part in several major offensive operation. (Didn't help my Squad Leader in the early months was also a breach instructor that trained SWAT guys or something like that. Needless to say I did my fair share of 'knocking on doors', lol).

The chap in streets of fire seemed to have .30/30 bullets containing Americium. The wondrous deregulated world of 1952!

Apparently the date is all wrong. Supposedly released circa 1967. The 'summer of love'. A quickening of sorts? Meanwhile all the excesses of the gulags were in full swing. Ironic.
