Default Re: Acceptable US Casualties Against 3rd World Armies

Time is really the big thing. While the action might be hot and heavy for a few minutes or hours it's rarely longer ... the battle of Ia Drang (from the "We Were Soldiers" movie) is the exception. The "West" has a lot of support assets and makes liberal use of them. For the most part "Third World" forces have what they carried to the battle and little else.
