I have been involved with Iraq ever since the U.S. Military Special Forces Teams to U.S. Ally Iraq during the Iran Iraq Wars, and rotated to CIA Operation Cyclone Afghanistan Pakistan. Trained, then Lead an Iraqis Combat Brigade. Trained, Armed, Lead the CIA created 1980s Pro U.S. Afghan Muhajeen to kill U.S.S.R. and Pro U.S.S.R. Afghans at Afghanistan, to give the U.S.S.R. "Unacceptable Losses" to defeat the U.S.S.R. Civilians and U.S.S.R. Military's "Will to Continue the Fight".
The inaccuracies, after the Defeat of U.S. Ally President Saddam Hussein's Army north of Baghdad Iraq as U.S. Military Operation Hotel California, as the U.S. Army 10th Special Forces Group, elements of the U.S. Army 5th Special Forces Group, 173rd Airborne destroyed 5 Iraqis Divisions, the U.S. Army 10th Special Forces Group kept 13 Iraqis Divisions stuck fighting North of Baghdad these 13 Iraqis Divisions had been redeployed from the Southern Iraqis Defenses.
At the rest of Iraq there were only small amounts of Sunnis fighting using Insurgency Warfare. To the South of Baghdad Iraq, the large numbers (Millions) of Iranians living at Iraq formed the Shiite Militias to kill the Foreigners (United Nations Coalition of Military Forces, Liberation of Iraq, U.S. Law Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 as the Democrat President Clinton Declared War Against Iraq, that would result in the OBL Second Attack of the World Trade Center as the 9/11 2001 Attacks). We were directly involved in the Events that lead to the OBL First 1993 Attack of the World Trade Center, and the OBL Second Attack of the World Trade Center, as the 9/11 2001 Attacks, as the U.S. Airstrikes and U.S. Cruise Missile Attacks against the Muslims of Baghdad Iraq 1993, 1996, 1998, and 1998 U.S. Military Operation Desert Fox.
What we learned from before as the Disaster of the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu was M.O.U.T. (Military Operations in Urban Terrain). That since the 1980s was taught to U.S. Military. During our diversionary attacks of Kabul and Kandahar during the Overthrow of the Afghan Taliban Government we did Urban Warfare. This involved Street to Street, Building to Building, Rooftop to Rooftop Warfare. We successfully used Urban Warfare at Baghdad Iraq since 2002 U.S. Military Operation Hotel California (not to be confused with 2001 CIA Operation Hotel California) to 2004. These times those of Us that were involved with Democrat President Clinton's 1993 Disaster of Operation Continue Hope aka Battle of Mogadishu were not going to run out of ammunition again, we carried rucksacks full of ammunition, did have our Night Vision with extra batteries, lots of handgrenades, ropes to use with wooden ladders to go from roof top to roof top "the high ground advantage", of Key Importance was the 24/7 Support of U.S.A.F. Special Operations Wing AC-130s. When we ran out of ammunition we then picked up enemy AK-47s, RPGs, Machineguns and used those, intentionally letting them get close and killing them so that was easier to get their weapons and ammunition.
2004 most U.S. Military Conventional Warfare had M-16s not M-4s. Many of the M-16s were armed with the M203 Grenade Launcher (inaccurate sights). We used the longer range more accurate old (Vietnam War Era) M-79 Grenade Launcher to clear Iraqis roof tops with Dual Purpose (Anti light armor and Anti Personnel) HE rounds.
The Platoon of 12 stranded without a radio is not a Platoon, and is a Squad.
This portrayal of the Iraq War is turning into another National Geographic failure as Fictional Drama and not Historical Drama, just like the previous National Geographic Failure as Presidential Re-Election Campaign Propaganda as National Geographic's "S.E.A.L. Team Six: The raid on Osama bin Laden", compared to the Historical Fiction account of "Zero Dark Thirty" that almost had those involve with "Zero Dark Thirty" charged with the Release of Classified Information.
