They did in Iraq as well, which a bit of knowledge of the invasion or a quick search would have showed him. Obviously you don't need to have a great knowledge of the forces to start websites on them.

The figures are both all forces, and come from the lists that CNN keep updated daily on their site for both wars http://edition.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2003/iraq/forces/casualties/index.html And as such will be figures since the wars first started (Iraq: March 2003, Afghanistan: October 2001). I don't know...

Hahahaha! The guy was merely asking what risks their was - why Is he not showing much intiative - because he wants to see the risk factors? I think Alfa made it quite clear it was how easy the information was to obtain, and if he had used some initiative he could have found it. Nothing to do with w...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/7358831.stm Here's there latest aerial assault. Not what I asked, I didn't state that 16th Air Assault had a dated name.

And to be honest. Marines is just a name nowadays. I rarely hear of any amphibious operations happen in Iraq. And I doubt the Marines come to Iraq via boat.

You know it would have taken you less time to type 'gladiators' into google than to ask that. Which would take you to the wikipedia entry from where you can get the dates and any other information, including links to the sky one page.

Ron hill make running tights, not the only manufacturer but the most common; and its what they're known for. MY best guess would be they're saying they don't want running tights but looser jogging trousers. It is only a guess though, someone may know the definitive answer to this.
