What lessons did the Vietcong learn during Operation Chopper?
In Vietnam War
This was the VC's first large scale engagement with helicopter borne combat troops, which occurred in 1962. Helicopter warfare WAS NEW to the world. Airborne Infantrymen (paratroopers) were born during WWII, the US Army experimented with the new concept of "Airmobile" (helicopter borne) Infantrymen during the early stages of the Vietnam War. By the time of the Ia Drang Battle in 1965 (see film: "We Were Soldiers...), the doctrine of Airmobile Divisions were now validated, and the US Army's 1st Cavalry Division became the 1st Air Cavalry Division. Later, the 101st Airborne Division would become the 101st Airborne (Airmobile) Division. The 101st Airborne was allowed to retain it's "Airborne" tab (above the shoulder patch Eagle's head), instead of replacing it with the "Airmobile" tab. In 1962, the communists learned how to determine how many choppers were enroute to their position, by the sound of the engines; they learned that if air activity was high over a certain area (aerial reconnaissance), then to be prepared for an air assault within that area. They learned that choppers can return machingun fire, and where those weapons can be positioned on the helicopter. They learned that if obstacles are placed on the LZ (Landing Zone) then the birds MUST disembark their infantrymen from the "hover" (without touching the ground). For anti-aircraft gunners, they learned some idea, about how long a helicopter would stay in the kill zone, while disembarking it's men.

Answer . They were the resistance element within South Vietnam and were largely controlled by the Communist North Vietnamese.
The Vietcog set traps to wound or kill as many enemies (American troops) before actually haviing to fight them. They could not fight America's superior technology face to face.. By setting traps the etnmies wounded, demoralized and seriousy freaked out American troops and made them less effective.
During normal working hours, they (The Viet Cong-VC) were pumping gas at the nearest filling station; or selling groceries in the local supermarket; or selling motorbikes at a town store. At night they became guerillas.. In the Forests/Jungles/Swamps they would have "caches" (hidden) weapons & ammu…nition. They would have tunnels to store medical/food supplies. Agent Orange was deployed to remove those Forests/Jungles and other vegetation used for enemy cover & concealment.. During the TET Offensive of '68, they came out in the open and fought "as regulars" in conventional battle; they hardly existed anymore after TET. The NVA (Northern Regulars) took over the fight from 1969 onward. (MORE)

The VC were not regular soldiers of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). The VC were Southern Vietnamese living in South Vietnam, who, for the most part, were decent hard working citizens by day, and communist guerillas by night. The VC were an organized, highly efficient military force, often organized… into battalion strength units, using mostly captured US/French/WW2 Japanese Rifles, Pistols, Machine Guns, etc. The VC were largely destroyed during the TET offensive of '68. They still existed; but they were a shadow of their former self, the NVA took over the rest of the war. (MORE)
The defeat of the British was due partly to their poor preparations for war. They under-estimated their enemies. Their soldiers were disorganised and their defence was weak. From this, one can learn the lesson that the government and people of a country should always be well-prepared to defend the c…ountry against any enemy. The British defeat by the Japanese (who were Asians) showed that the Europeans were not superior to the Asians. After the war, many Asians did not respect the British as much as they had done before the war. The sufferings that the people went through during the Japanese occupation also taught the people to see the need to get rid of their foreign masters (MORE)
In terms of military strategy wise, you can say that Hitlershouldn't of underestimated the USSR and that he should have a planto deal with the harsh Soviet Winters. Also it would of been easierif Hitler used more tanks and had more men to fend of the enormoussize of the Red Army. In terms of histor…ical wise, it can be learned that if someonewants something and he/she has a passion for it, they would mostlikely do the most unpredictable things. (MORE)
The VC lived off caches, captured, and smuggled weapons. The NVA brought theirs down with them, when they marched down the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
The Vietcong were forces aiding North Vietnam by use of guerrilla warfare tactics. They were virtually unable to be picked out from the South Vietnamese civilians, making it difficult to combat these forces.
Don't turn a guerrilla war into a conventional one; like Vietnam turned out to be. In the future fight FIRE with FIRE; much like the Australians did in Vietnam (they had low casualities and a high enemy body count). Today's "bells and whistles" military people (bells and whistles=hi-tech super doope…r snipers and night vision .50 caliber sniper rifles, hi-tech sniper schools, computerized GPS navigation systems, LASER RANGE FINDERS (no more estimations) etc.) can terminate terrorists/insurgents (insurgents are people that attack an established government...they themselves NOT having a government, except the one they're attacking-which is often their own) as easily as those three hi-jackers were terminated this year (2009) by USN SEALS; One Shot, One Kill (times three!) SF (Snipers, Commando's, SEALS, etc) are less expensive because one SF man is equal to 10 or more standard military men. He's more effective; He's less expensive; and greatly feared by the enemy, whomever that enemy may be. The Global War On Terrorism requires Special Forces (SF) to deal with Special Problems! (MORE)
Unfortunately, many of the VC casualty numbers are calculated (combined) with the NVA numbers; the result of early war lack of training in identifying enemy organization (as well as tactical and strategic doctrine). Some writings indicate at least 2 million communist personnel were killed during th…e war; and an educated estimate might put those VC numbers to be at least 100,000 KIA (killed in action). VC units, for the most part, were no longer effective units after 1968 (Tet destroyed them). So, their (largest) activities only lasted from roughly 1960 until '68. (MORE)

According to Martin Luther, the Book of Esther lionised the Jews. His comments highlight the fact that the book portrays the Jews who surrounded Queen Esther as superior in every way to their gentile neighbours. The Book of Esther also presents a lesson of moral hazard. It teaches that if you are w…inning, show no mercy to your opponents. Queen Esther's petition for more time to kill teaches that absolute victory is more important than justice or due process. (MORE)
How did lessons learned in operation enduring freedom contribute to improve joint air support to ground forces in oif?
One must have a competent opponent in order to validate military doctrine and equipment. And the last time that was done was in the skies over North Vietnam, when US airpower developed "Wild Weasels" and other countermeasures against anti-aircraft defenses; along with super-sonic aerial jet combat c…oncepts and weapons such as the TOP GUN school at Miramar California or the USAF's RED FLAG aerial combat schools (which reintroduced the old traditional "dog-fight" for fighter pilots). True, the US Army finally got the chance to deploy it's much vaunted "combined arms" (air land battle) doctrine against Iraq during Operation Desert Storm in January and February of 1991. But that turned out to be just target practice (in the military the correct term is "live fire exercise") the slaughter became so bad, that President Bush Senior had to order a stop to it (as he watched the "Highway of Death" on CNN). Iraq was by no stretch of the imagination a competent enemy! There entire air force fled into Iran (and that was their enemy! They just finished fighting an 8 year war with them in 1988). Operation Enduring Freedom is not a war against Afghanistan, nor is it a war against any Army, Marine Corp, Navy, or Air Force in which to learn anything new. What is new, is the Global War on Terrorism. This is requiring special talents & skills (and weapons) and new procedures (doctrine, tactics, strategy) which will have to be learned. In the 1990s the US Military lost it's traditional role of being strictly a military force. This was due to the collapse of the USSR and the end of the cold war. In order to save it's job, the military had to accept LAW ENFORCEMENT duties, consequently, the US Military is now part Policeman, part Soldier. Iraq and Afghanistan are law enforcement functions; finding terrorists, and either arresting them or terminating them. (MORE)

Hercules, the son of Zeus and Alcmene. He was born in Thebes, Greece. His name means "Glory of Hera". Yet Hera was his arch enemy. His missions were 10/12 by Oracle of Delphi 1. Conquer and deliver the Nemean Lion, a monstrous feline. 2. Kill the multiheaded Hydra. 3. Bring back, dead or… alive, the Cerynitian Hind, a ravaging deer. 4. Catch the Erymanthian Boar. 5. Clean out the massive stables of Augeas, perhaps the most famous of the Labors. 6. Scare off and kill the metal-feathered Stymphalian birds. 7. Capture the Cretan Bull. 8. Do something about those pesky man-eating Mares of Diomedes (he moved them and released them.) 9. Get the Girdle of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons (she gave it to him peacefully, which enraged Hera, who arranged for the rest of the Amazons to attack Hercules; in the mess that followed, Hippolyta was killed by Hercules.) 10. Steal the cattle of Geryon. 11. Bring back the Golden Apples of the Hesperides. 12. Go down to the Underworld and bring back multi-headed Cerberus, chief Hound of Hades. How did Hercules die? When Hercules was trying to take his bride Deianeira home, he had to cross the Evenus River. Nessus, a centaur, served as ferryman. First he rowed Hercules across and then, as he started to row Deianeira across, he tried to rape her. Hercules drew one of his poisoned arrows and shot the centaur. Before he died, the centaur persuaded Deinaeira to take some of his blood to use as a love potion should Hercules ever cause her to worry. In time, Deianeira became suspicious of Hercules' interest in another woman, named Iole, so she smeared some of the carefully-saved centaur blood on a tunic and gave it to Hercules, trusting that it would act as a love potion and return him to her. Unfortunately, the centaur had lied. The blood contained not a love potion, but a powerful poison from the poison with which Hercules had tipped his arrows. It had come from the Lernaean hydra. When Hercules put on the tunic, it burned. He was in such excruciating pain that he wanted to die and had a funeral pyre built for himself. He then mounted it and had it lit. He died and went to the gods where he was reconciled with his tormenter, the queen of the gods, Hera. She allowed him to marry her daughter Hebe and live among the gods thereafter. (MORE)

Perhaps the best way to describe a time when you learned a lesson would be an 'educational' time: 'The time we spent visiting family in a different country was an educational experience.' 'I did some gardening for friends last summer; it was very educational .' 'Approaching a strange dog by pu…tting a hand towards its head can be an educational experience, since a dog that doesn't know you might think you mean to hurt it and respond with a sharp bark.' 'He took a casual summer job which paid well and was also educational : he learned about working with others, accepting management, and producing a useful product, among other lessons.' (MORE)

That my ancestors should have simply "let go" and allowed the south to secede and work out their own destiny. We could have avoided 600,000 deaths from combat casualties and battlefield diseases. Slavery would've been resolved in the Confederate States within 25 years anyhow. There would've been no …reconstruction period disasters. And the south could now be putting whatever science medieval fairy-tales and history revisions that they want in their high school text books and it wouldn't cause us in the north any sleepless nights. [But, of course, they wouldn't be because then they'd shrivel up into more of an economic irrelevancy than they already were next to their northern brothers.] Texas could execute anyone and everyone they want...and Rick Perry would probably be viewed as a southern progressive instead of the barbarian Hun with good hair that he actually is.

The important lesson to be learned in Akeelah and the Bee is inorder to achieve a goal a person must work hard. Another lesson isto not let what other people think keep personal goals from beingaccomplished.
The world has (possibly) learned to accept people for who they are as humans and not judge them by their race or religion. There is no link between being culturally advanced and education does not , of course, make people good. Otto Rasch, for example, who commanded on of the mobile killing units…, had two doctorates ... We can learn that the human nature can be destructive and that people who have mental health problems needs to see a doctor. There's nothing we can do to prevent history from repeating itself, think about Virginia Tech and mass destruction in Africa. Racism will always exists, theres nothing that people can do can stop it. Individuals will always have their judgements on other people... What could have been learnt is to never let history repeat itself, and world peace is possible. Some people actively believe that history are made-up lies, they refused to believe the mass murders and mass destruction. We could have learned the morals of the Holocaust, but some people don't care about it and just hope that it never happens again. How can we insure that it never happens again? It's not possible for one country to have peace and unity, there will always be wars and conflict occuring. (MORE)

One lesson is that what kind of home or ethnic group or social class you come from is not as important as what kind of person you decide to be. Barack Obama was the child of a black father from Africa and a white mother from Kansas and Hawaii. His father left when he was just two and he only saw his… dad one other time in his life. He was raised in a lower-middle class environment, one of the few biracial kids in his school, at a time when inter-racial marriages were rare. His mom, a college student, struggled to raise him. But in spite of these challenges, he was encouraged by his mom and his maternal grandparents to read, to do well in school, and to have big dreams. He did not let the lack of a father stop him, even if it made him sad and disappointed him. In fact, it made him vow that if he ever had children, he would always be present in their lives. By all accounts, he had kept that promise. And even though he went through a period of time in high school when he hung out with what might be considered a "bad crowd," he decided that was not what he wanted for his life. He ended up graduating from college, getting a law degree, and having a successful career in politics. (MORE)

10 top business lessons from serial killers You might or might not know I'm fascinated by serial killers. Yes, they're humanity gone deeply, fundamentally and spectacularly wrong. But they're not all bad... Well, they are all bad. They're foul. But you can learn solid business lessons from the… way they carry out their dreadful work. And entertain yourself at the same time, if you're of a ghoulish persuasion! Here's my top 10 business lessons you can learn from serial killers: Have A Passion Serial killers are dedicated, determined and utterly focused on what they do. But they often live an outwardly normal life. Take a leaf out of their book. While you're at work, immerse yourself in it. When you shut up for the day, return to ''normal'. Don't let your work bleed into your leisure time, or vice versa. Aim your intellectual fire where it'll cause the most damage and keep your best business weapon - your brain - scarily sharp. Pick a Target Market Serial killers often have a very clear (if mad) idea of the kind of people they want to knock off. Turn their obsession with targeting into something positive by figuring out the type of people who are most likely to buy your stuff. Then take aim and fire your marketing campaigns directly at their chests. Bang. Planning Planning Planning If you're a natural planner this'll be no problem. But if you're a fire-from-the-hip kind of person, a small business Big Leggy with as much impulse control as John Wayne, you'll have more of a task on your hands. Rein yourself in and gaffer tape yourself to your desk 'til you've planned your business's future sensibly. Even if it means you starve. Or find someone who can hold your hand through the torture and do the hard bits for you. Research & Recce A serial killer has an uncannily detailed understanding of his (they're very rarely female) environment. They have an intimate understanding of what's going on around them. Unless they're at the meltdown stage, where a tiny but insistent part of their psyche wants them to be caught, they'll research and recce more than once. Act like a meticulous serial killer. Evaluate and measure everything once. Then do it again. Then do it a third time. Explore your competitive landscape. Then do it again. And again. Now you know what's going on. And the f***ers won't catch you. Pardon my French. Trial Runs This is especially important in all sorts of areas. Serial killers are also meticulous about trying things out first to ensure perfect execution. Presentations for a start. Don't just turn up and mutter. Prepare and practise. It might take more time, but it'll be much more productive and successful, so you win. If you don't have time, get admin support organised and free up what you need. Trial marketing campaigns too. Never assume something is going to work. Try it on a smaller scale before rolling something out to everyone and his dog. Ditto product development and so on. You name it, trial it first to make it the best you can. Thinking Of The Consequences If You Don't Get It Right From The Start Following on from the above, it's difficult to get het up about something if you're not 100% au fait with the consequences if things go belly up. You don't want disasters slicing the fat off your profits. Luckily simply being aware of the best and worst scenarios gives you the intelligence you need to act wisely. Do a best, middle and worst scenario for everything you do where it makes business sense. Get in the habit and it'll see you through hard times. Having A Back Up Plan One of the most horrible things about serial killers is they're so intelligent. More so than average. You'd have thought they'd have the inner resources to take a nicer route through life. But that's psychopaths for you. Like them, if you don't want to be caught out you need a rugged backup plan. It's all very well having all this stuff in your head, by the way, but creating a document makes it real and forces you to take yourself seriously. Serial killers often create a weird, creepy shrine. You should be fine with a Word document or Excel spreadsheet. Follow Up Properly Don't leave loads of loose ends hanging around. Treat every project like a crime scene. Clear up so there's not a trace of mess left. Make every project a thing of perfection and beauty from start to finish. If you're not a natural completer-finisher, get someone in to help. Don't Get Sloppy & Don't Wing It Don't get complacent, whatever you do. That's when serial killers get caught. They exceed the speed limit, leave their DNA at a burglary scene or leave their equipment in clear view through a window. They lose their temper in view of a CCTV camera. Or nick and fry someone's cat. Make yourself check and verify things. You can guarantee the one time you don't check is the time you run into trouble. It's one of the laws of the universe. Planning Your Exit If Things Go Belly Up If things go really, really wrong it's sensible to have a plan in place for that too. Serial killers carry their meticulous, obsessive planning right through to the end, some having detailed exit plans in place to help them disappear at a moment's notice. Obviously you don't want to disappear. But knowing what to do if things go wrong helps you back away from a project with minimal mayhem and chaos. Be honest and know where the cracks in your plans lie. It's much easier to make a backup plan when you know exactly where the threats are. Take note and keep note of your vulnerabilities. And plug them the best you can, planning for every eventuality while avoiding veering into black paranoia. -Outsource business services- //What most serial killers suffer from is lack of conscious, officially speaking, Antisocial Personality Disorder, or APD. It is not a mental illness but a defect in their personality, which cannot be fixed or altered much by any treatment known to mankind. It also means that what they are is what they will stay. The act of incarceration is more for the protection of the public than the punishment of the killer. They don't 'learn their lesson' and reform for the simple fact that their basic personality is defective from the very earlist years of their lives.// (MORE)

He learns several during the night of the visit from the Ghosts. From Marley alone, Scrooge learns: 1) The singular pursuit of profit, with no attempt to share money with others, will lead to eternal misery: "It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow…men, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on earth, and turned to happiness!" 2) Scrooge himself wears a chain "as heavy and as long as this, seven Christmas Eves ago. You have laboured on it, since. It is a ponderous chain!" 3) That the purpose of business people is NOT profit: "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!" 4) That simply feeling sorry is NOT enough: "no space of regret can make amends for one life's opportunity misused!" 5) That there is plenty of chances to go to those in need -- IF you will bother to look: "Why did I walk through crowds of fellow-beings with my eyes turned down, and never raise my eyes to that blessed Star which led the Wise Men to a poor abode! Were there no poor homes to which its light would have conducted me!" 6) And, upon looking out after Marley's departure, Scrooge saw "one old ghost, in a white waistcoat, with a monstrous iron safe attached to its ankle, who cried piteously at being unable to assist a wretched woman with an infant, whom it saw below, upon a door-step. The misery with them all was, clearly, that they sought to interfere, for good, in human matters, and had lost the power for ever." In other words, the time to assist others is BEFORE you find yourself in an eternity of regret for not doing so. (MORE)
