Pretty slick design. Reminds me of the "K-nex" sets they had when I was a kid that were the nuts and bolts equivalent of Leggos, and had electric motors and chains...I hate the hajjis as much as anyone, but I respect the dudes that are picking up the rifles and fighting against the tyrannical government. I can't imagine how hard we would fight on our own turn with our families in the mix. I know I'd put my wrench turning to good use instead of driving the m-fer to the gate myslef....
The stand off these boys had in the video is pretty impressive. If we can disrupt their comms and continue to make them rely upon line of sight it will be much easier to prevent this type of attack. It also seems logical that ECM placed at FOB's may help to prevent the use of Drones to guide them in.
whoa!! that's just friggin brutal! alla fuk you! we need too just do a drive-by,low yield tactical nuke on they're asses.
These guys don't fuck arround. Next thing they'll make is a remote control hot air balloons and terrorize whomever.
I had heard similar instances in Columbia as well. If I recall correctly in the late 80s, I think in Syria, a crude remotely guided VBIED was tried but they lost control of it and it missed. Its a scary evolution.....
I guess my mom and dad didn't raise me right. I was never taught to kill innocent women, children etc. What kind of God is this Mohamad anyway?
@flhtse05 Hey bro, I am currently reading 'The Truth about Muhammad', if the guy had been an American he would have been institutionalized, lol. He was a real fucked up dude, pulled all kinds of bad stuff, rape and pillage, murder etc. Islam has 3 requisites, "Be a Muslim, Convert to Islam, or Die" that's it, period. All the other b.s. is ridiculous for a sane person....6
@Recon6 @flhtse05 there are many strands of Islam and you're making a bit of a generalization there and i do think you need a broader representation than just that of Robert Spencer. The Brits and the SAS worked extensively with Muslim tribes people in the Yemen and Oman in the 50s, 60s & 70s with no problems. Majority of these tribes people followed this strand - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibadi
Spencer is criticising things that were written thousands of years ago in very different times. The Crusades were every bit as bad and most likely worse when they rampaged for a thousand years throughout the medievel perioud. How much of the Old Testament do Christians follow these days? It's full of f**cked up sh1t. The New Testament less so but its still in there. We'd baulk at doing a lot of that stuff these days. Personally, i'm an atheist but I dont blame religion, i blame those that manipulate dirt poor and for the most part uneducated and diss-associated persons into doing their evil using Religion as the reason. A lot of these people know nothing apart from what their teachers tell them - no tvs, music, books, etc. Their countries are poor and in some places practically stone age. If someone promises you eternal pleasure in the afterlife and it's the only thing you know you're probably going to believe it.
@Recon6 @flhtse05 Check out Destiny Disrupted if you want a little less partisan view on the religion. The author (who I think is a pretty liberal Muslim) takes a LOT of shit from Salafist for questioning a lot of the more "magical" claims in the book.http://www.amazon.com/Destiny-Disrupted-History-Through-Islamic/dp/1586488139
I am tired of hearing alak bard or alad salad bar or whatever their favorite phase is. They love saying it after every explosion. Please, I don't need anyone to tell me what it is, because I know what they say and mean. I just don't really give a hakbar
@DeltaBravo193 If there were tanks in your neighborhood there would be a fair number of people praying right before pulling the trigger. Rural people tend to be more religious regardless of where you are talking about.
@CK5150 .......either that or 'Barney The Dinosaur'. Kind of a toss up.
@SleazyWeazel Both annoying but the Barney song typically isn't used as the background music for terrorist attacks.
Ultimately, though, the most overused torture song is I Love You by Barney the Purple Dinosaur. On the face of it, the lyrics may seem deeply inappropriate: "I love you, you love me - we're a happy family./With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you,/Won't you say you love me too?", but anyone whose child watches the television programme will know how grating it is. In the torture trade, this is called "futility music", designed to convince the prisoner of the futility of maintaining his position.
