Damien Omen II - I Love You, Mark..
Bravo Two Zero is a 1993 book written under the pseudonym 'Andy McNab'..The book is a partially fictional account of an SAS patrol that becomes compromised while operating behind enemy lines in Iraq, in 1991. The patrol was led by the author and included another writer, 'Chris Ryan'..Born 1961 Rowlands Gill, County Durham..It is common for Thelemites to greet each other with "93" in person as well as in the opening and closing of written correspondence..There are other words found in Thelemic literature using either isopsephy or gematria..

Flag of Durham County Council since 1974, based on the council's coat of arms..

Michael Asher's investigative book, The Real Bravo Two Zero criticised McNab's estimation of the number of soldiers the patrol encountered..According to Asher, the patrol never actually encountered soldiers, only police and armed civilians - Asher's investigation supported Ryan's version of events with no reported soldiers, no reported armed contact, and no reported Iraqi casualties -The SAS's Regimental Sergeant Major at the time the book is set, and fellow Golf War veteran Peter Ratcliffe said of the book (and of The One That Got Away (1995), "[It is] insensitive on [Ryan's] and [McNab's] parts to hide behind pseudonyms when they named their dead colleagues in their books, in deliberate contravention of the Regiment's traditions"...As with Asher, Ratcliffe also cited McNab's estimate of 250 enemy casualties as counter to any proven theory of military kill ratios, but most importantly, the figure was never mentioned in any of the Regimental debriefs given by McNab at the time..Clan Macnab is a Highland Scottish clan... could have got more out..I could have got more..I don't really know..If I'd just...I could have got more, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force 2knight...
