Topic: what exactly are these two up to?


i realize that this could be taken out of context, so i won't judge these soldiers. http://www.datter.com/video/soldiers.wmv]but it looks like they're shooting a few grenades at an old car.[/url] if anyone could translate the video, that'd be nice too. especially since i'm sure it's not saying anything nice about what's going on.

There are wounded Iraqis without weapons in the car.

.... is probably what the text is saying.

But seriously, it looks like he's just BSing around and shootin' a broken down ol' car. I really don't know.

i believe that's from Desert Shield/Desert Storm. it's an AH-64 and he's shooting up bad guys. it's been going around, there's a lot of fun helo vids. which reminds me...hmm, i might need to start another thread.

i brought up that thing with the soldiers fooling around because it's so easy to misinterpret what's going on and make the US look bad. al-qaeda recruiting tapes are full of clips like that. the tape that i saw had clips from desert storm and they were showing soldiers gloat over the people they were shooting up.

I think they're shooting it up incase it's a roadside bomb.

hahas, in the video those soldeirs doesnt seem very professional-trained
1) they dont have efficient cover( well, who cares, but its in urban grounds and enemy insurgents might snipe)
2) Damn.... they reload so slowly with the grenade launcher: not good for urban battlefield
3) the first guy fires the grenade(claps) the second guy seems to be stuck somewhere between his day-dream and the reality world in iraq

LOL teh usa is teh badily trayned!

But you bring up a point, sence they were so layed back, perhaps they weren't in any danger zone and thus they were only messing around, and not checking for IEDs.

I don't know.
