Well, now we are able to see the Rest of the Story here. It appears that Zarqawi, and his followers, are not as proficient as one would assume. (Go to the page and click on the gray 'video' tab)

What I fine most interesting is not the New Balance shoes, but rather, his lack of safety proceedures. First, he shoots his captured SAW(Squad Automatic Weapon), talks to the camera, and then turns around with the barrel pointing toward one of his followers, who could have been just as easily blown away from a heavy finger still on the trigger. This is why US forces are constantly taught to remove finger from inside the trigger guard until ready to fire.

Further, having a jam is no big deal. I would not expect him to know how to clear this in order to get the weapon to fire automatically. It's a common mistake, although a well trained soldier is taught to immediately recharge the weapon, by pulling back on the bolt and allowing it to extract the bad round and reseat a new one into the chamber.

However, most telling of the amateurish training, or lack thereof, of the terrorists is where one of them attempts to grab the just fired weapon by the barrel. I had to laugh at this Monumental Gaff. I'm sure that the perp will NOT do that in the future. Wink1

Does anyone believe that we will not catch or kill this fellow in the future? And if he is in Syria, as experts are convinced, will Operators be able to get him there? I suspect that they will.

He and his men remind me of the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie "True Lies", in which the terrorists are just competent enough to keep from killing each other accidentially. This is NOT the kind of PR that any Arab/Muslim would want to project. No wonder Al Jazera refuses to show it to the unsuspecting Islamic masses. Wink1
I don't know if we'll catch or kill him,I thought he was already dead. I hope so.

The worst thing I saw was how he handed the thing back to his boys,pointed the barrel right at them.
and then they burned their hands with it. S2 even I know better than that!

you know, im thinking of this video and how we killed or captured, i dont remember which, some big time AQ propagandist who was the mastermind behind these tapes. im thinkin with him out of the picture, Zark has to resort to doing crap like this himself. he is a second rate military mastermind, and apparently, a third rate PsyOp technician.

what a dunce!

the New Balance shoes are the best part. guess its hard to run your ass off in boots S2
:lol: :lol: :lol:
its going to be a great day when we identify his DNA from the red smear on the walls of some abandoned Motel on the edge of Baghdad...
Terrorists by their nature are not efficient. It is generally a myth created by people.
it warms the cackles of my heart to know that some Predator drone probably killed off the smarter of his entourage S2
Generally thugs don't bother to become very professional. They rely on the fear factor, and run when their opponent stands up to them.

The only thing they have on their side is the American opposition, so they hold on, hoping for time to go their way.
still, i think it is a great example of how terrorists MIGHT be replaced as fast as we can kill them, but it does not guarantee they will be of any good.
G,

I don't think even in Iraq, which according to Jedburgh was primed for terrorist training with their mukhbarat bomb expertise,can replace "soldiers" very well.
but we are not talking about "soldiers". we are talking about fodder.

how hard can it be to get a mentally unstable teen to walk into a resturant and detonate a bomb vest? im hearing that this happens several times a day in Israel, we just dont get reports of the ones who are stopped before their target is reached.
It's harder than you think,if it weren't we'd see it daily in America.
Reminids me of a thread we discussed a few years ago...

Anyone ever come up with the SF short story about the day the Media decided to lie when reporting terrorist acts, to always make the terrorists out to be simpleton fools who blow themselves up and look ridiculous?

Now THAT was an honorable MSM.

im not so sure it wont happen.

but i rely on the idea that we would tolerate about 3 attacks before we rounded up every single foreign muslim and put them in internment camps.
Oh,I'm sure it will happen,but not everyday. Take a look at this article just so everyone here keeps a good perspective on what's most important,denigrating our President and demanding we lose in Iraq like some who post here desire or staying until we can afford to leave so our daughters aren't treated this way later right here at home
