Default The Lone Survivor

Somewhat weapons in the media related but mods you can place it elsewhere if you want.
Wanted to say the Lone Survivor DVD will be available to buy Tuesday June 3rd.
If you haven't seen it or want a copy to see again it's well worth buying.

Seen the Movie at the Theater! It was well worth going and I will also be buying the DVD since I want a copy and want to watch it again. Thanks for the info on the date of release.

An ill planned military op that went bad from the get-go. Lots of action but very little plot other than pure incompetence.

You speak like this is only a movie! Like it didn't really happen! Very little plot? Pure incompetence? What in the hell do you know about what really happened here?

If you guys have time, check out the link below. They did a pretty good job with the movie, but not quite everything was fact.

The whole operation was a blunder. The intelligence was bad from the start.

The QRF was not standing by or ready.

Long before they spotted the goat herders, they saw that they were vastly outnumbered by muj. That was the time to call-in an air strike while getting the heck out of there.

Would I have killed the goat herders? No. But I would have tied them up enough so that their walk home would have taken a long time.

Watching a CF in the guise of an action movie is not entertaining to me.
