Tactical U.S victory[edit]

The article does not explain how the U.S won a 'tactical' victory. In fact, I would say that tactically the U.S lost to the SNA as well, unless the tactic was to strengthen Al-Qaida and be attacked on their own soil a few years later.

Unless someone can explain in the article how the U.S won a 'tactical' victory in Somalia, I think we should be a little more honest and remove it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.246.232.41 (talk) 20:03, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

We took the men we went in for. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 05:34, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

What happened to the 533rd Transportation drivers driving the trucks?????[edit]

Irritated that the 533d Transportation Company out of Benning is never mentioned. They are the ones driving the trucks during this operation. Oddly enough Rangers don't do trucks.

If you're irritated, then write it up. Keep in mind that drivers don't get glory. It's the ones that fought in the battle that are credited. I know in this instance the drivers were essential, but that's just the way it is. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 05:32, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Another documentary[edit]

I added the Black Ops documentary, but ask me about finding a reference. I'm actually watching it right now on my DVR. I couldn't find even a mention at the official site, but I did find a Google cached page of the TV schedule the week it aired. I don't know how long that cached page will be available, but I used that. It's not a fancy perfect reference like all the others that were painstakingly crafted and look beautiful, but it's your standard URL, so... I just left it an ugly URL. Sorry about that but there was no fancying that up. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 05:31, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Casulties and loses[edit]

1500-2000 deaths..where you got this numbers???

Whenever US soldiers are involved in some shooting we have always same problem. Somebody form american side shout "3000 enemy deaths" or "10,000 deaths"...and suddenly that number become official.

I honestly think that those claims don't have any reability and all and need to be removed.
