"normally in 4-man teams, although they could possibly split into two 2's"
Obviously then Aussie politicians don't know what they are talking about then when they are bragging about the Aussie SAS to the Aussie electorate...

"Now you have obviously assumed that when the US military first moved into this area was at the beginning of the invasion, but that is not what News Hour's hired military expert was saying at all, was it"

Which cleverly misdirects one away from the real question 'If the US Military KNEW (and public statements were made to that effect - of bypassing areas of fanatical resistance - while I was watching the multi-channel broadcast of the 'invasion' here) that they were bypassing areas of serious resistance, and also since many public statements have been made for the last 3 years that there were known areas of "seed grounds for terrorists", why was no attempt made to go there before right now, which coincides with released evidence of worsening public opinion'?
Because the White House was so incompetent that they honestly believed that it would all be a brief walkover, and that the public would not care, as long as the war could be portrayed as a great victory of US might, and that the '710' would be safe.

Picking at minor alleged faults of the opposing view is an old debating tactic which I was aware of while on the school debating team, even before I was an independent rep for mature & external students on the University Student Union.

"Discredited myself Mr F, don't think so - Others like yourself, Arne and Alba definitely have."

Glad to see you admit it - we certainly have discredited you... but you definitely outshine any of us at attempted misdirection and obfuscation. Doubtless you were one of those claiming that the leaping onto hovering helicopters from the US Embassy building in Vietnam was a 'tremendous victory for the free world'!!!
