Combat (French for fight) is a purposeful violent conflict meant to weaken, establish dominance over, or kill the opposition, or to drive the opposition away from a location where it is not wanted or needed.

Combat is typically between opposing military forces in warfare. Combat violence can be unilateral, whereas fighting implies at least a defensive reaction. A large-scale fight is known as a battle. A verbal fight is commonly known as an argument. Combat effectiveness, in the strategic field, requires combat readiness. In military areas, the term is applied also to personnel, that has to receive proper training and be qualified to carry out combat operations in the unit to which they are assigned.
Lost on of my favorite soldiers during combat. Feeling very down.

What Marine Grunts (Infantryman) see on a daily basis in Iraq and Shitghanistan (Afghanistan). What Marine POGs (Non-Infantryman) claim to see when they get deployed but they never leave the wire and sit on the FOB (base inside the wire where they are protected) the entire time with the Army, Navy, and Air Force. But they will sure talk shit when they get home like they did something trying to score some pussy. Don't let them fool you girls. If you are not a Marine Infantryman (0311, 0321, 0331, 0341, 0351, 0352) or a Navy Corpsman (8404) and even the Staff and Officers... sometimes (0302, 0306, 0369) then you ain't shit.
Marine Infantryman 1: "Man, do you know what I hate worse than POGs claiming to have seen combat?"

Marine Infantryman 2: "What?"

Marine Infantryman 1: "The Air Force. What the fuck do they do?"

When two things are in clear conflict with each other. The opposite of compatable.
Mike & Jane were very compatable when they got married. But after a few years they became combatable & got divorced.

When a female massages the prostate of her male partner (through the rectum) usually during oral sex.

This action usually leads to larger orgasms and more seamen. Messy!!
I asked my girlfriend to combat me. While she obliged, she didn't seem too happy...

Greedy person who cares nothing for his or her team-mates on the battlefield, only concern is to bag as many rank 60+ weps and shiney infernal/dragon armor.
