    -weren't allowed to take the equipment they knew they would need because it would look scary and like a war (yes this was the clinton admin's actual reasoning for not allowing armor or attack helis)
    -Had been doing night raids until then when the populace was coming down off Khat rather than peaking on it, were caught off guard by how outright zealous the militia and even civies would be
    -were outnumbered roughly 1 to 10, even more if you count human shields. Numbers vary here but it was bad.
    -were dragged into a longterm engagement during what was supposed to be a quick in and out. A heli getting hit with an RPG is a one in a thousand shot so they didn't expect it. As it turns out the somalis had more than a thousand of them, in an interview with one of the somali citizens of the time said he couldn't even see the sky because there were so many rocket trails that day.

      How was it that we took casualties so hard? These were filthy sandcoons, yet the movie shows that we got rocked pretty hard..

        A gun is a gun. Nobody over the age of 12 thinks that special forces can just win every time through sheer badassery, even specforces themselves don't think that. Part of what gives them the advantage they're known for is taking smart engagements, this was not a smart engagement and the actual team leaders voiced as much and were told to shut up and go because clinton wanted the whole thing to be done with.

          SF, as well as SEALs are, on balance, a net negative for the US military. Frick up after frick up. The conclusion of 'Enduring Freedom' was the final word for me. Scrap the lot and start again.

            This is selection bias or "worf synrome". SF are used for the most difficult of tasks, things other organizations wouldn't even know where to start with. As such they're more likely to fail, and additionally when they do fail it makes the news because what they were trying to do was important ie newsworthy.
            "SF raid fails to rescue high level politicians held hostage balls deep in a jungle guarded by 400 militias" is a headline. "soldiers frick up and waste $900,000 worth of ordinance shooting at rock that looked kind of like a tank" is not.
            Or my personal favorite "Ugandan militias get angry at russian supplier for giving inaccurate rifles. Turns out they were setting the elevation knobs to max because higher number makes it more powerful"

              To take this a step further, the successful SF missions "never happened" so of course you only hear about the shit that went so wrong they couldn't deny it, or else it happened 50 years ago and just got declassified but everyone who cared is dead now.

              I honestly don't think I was ever this stupid. Maybe when I was like 4. But the fact an entire militia doesn't understand weaponry baffles me. Like what do these guys do all day? Think about food and rape?

    all i remember from this was why did they have to mutilate the dead soldiers corpses?
    i remember seeing pics of so called ‘civilians’ and even kids smiling at dead mutilated bodies. It was really disgusting to see. Weren’t the soldiers there to help them? Why would they do that?
    It’s one of my biggest fears now, being overwhelmed by hundreds of blacks and getting tortured and mutilated, imagine being one of those guys damn

      Different parts of Mogadishu were controlled by different militias. Some were friendly (the smiling crowd at the end of the battle) but many were hostile.

    It was 100 American soldiers against thousands of militia in the middle of a hostile city. I'd say they did pretty well considering the circumstances.

    Uh, thousands more militia than marines, all with ak’s and ammo stockpiles, RPGs, .50 cal gun nests and mobile technicals, in urban environment where air support is limited effectiveness and ROE that prohibits fire first or civilian casualties.

    A daylight ground snatch and grab mission was stupid planning. (Yeah I do get the eyes-on intel for the target was daylight, but still…)

      According to the author of BHD and the soldiers there, the movie downplayed the amount of RPGs used. It was constant. In the air, against the humvees and soldiers. Also the US base in the movie had a lot of men in the background. In reality when the mission started they had to pull cooks off the line for guard duty.
