    only bad parts losing mates , that sucks , the rest , heck i'm dumb and dont know any better .. to me its been a grand life ,

    good mates , we got a lot done , set some entire nations free ,

    yeah the only thing i'd change would be the losses ..

    and to be back in the ghan to do it right .. and not this footsey game we have now thats just chewing us up and letting them walk , thats a new one on me and i see why its screwed your folks so bad in VN .. horrid horrid feeling knowing you could win , if the powers that be would just let you ..

    they smuggle em in in aid sacks of food from pakistan and cut the stocks and wood to make em fit after we started raiding stashes they started moving their stocks to pakistan and this is how they come back

    they cut em in a arrow type cut and then drill a hole in both put a small rod in and tape it all together , i think its whats handy .. some are just brown packing tape some bright colours ..

    it may be tribal i honestly dunno

    first job after making contacts with old friends was to go after the supply dumps they had

    Thans for posting those jack.

    The videos of the Aussy special forces I posted a link to the other day, I have a question about them. I said I liked the patch of the black widow spider they wear but am I wrong on that spider. Is it actually the red back spider from Australia instead? IF so are the toxic and how bad? I saw a program that mentioned them living in grub holes once the grubs move on which got me to wondering if I was wrong on the patches on the Aussy special forces in that videos. Like I said, just wondering.

    red back and black widow are related , and before we had the anti venom they killed many and yes some do move into grub holes and spring out and bite but they generally kill the grub to do so ...

    and why they use it as there symbol , i'd send you one but i've sent all mine to folks already

    heres what a red back can do

    HA1, we blow it ( mostly ) we've captured enough to arm a few armies but the other islamic nations just keep pouring the junk in , mate let me know that 2006 manufacture date stuff is most common now and some is chinese in origin .. and that they are expecting a lot of Libyan and Egyptian stuff to hit there as well ( intel reports your folks agree with )


    some we play with

    RPG;s are cool
