Posted on 03/25/2009 9:07:16 AM PDT by Notoriously Conservative
US military convoy was hit by an IED, soldiers stopped to check out the damage and suddenly ambushed by insurgent small fire, and quickly the soldiers return fire at insurgents with some help from Apaches, at the end all the insurgents are terminated and only 1 wounded us soldier who got hit by a small shrapnel by an IED.
It's amazing to see the fire power these soilders respond with. Those insurgent mo-fo's hit them with an IED, and they respond with .50 cal's, helfire missiles, etc. It's just amazing.

Just another Overseas Contingency. See next thread.
Just for the record, those were 2.75” rocket attacks, not HFMs.

I love War Porn....Go Guys Go! Get Some, Get Some!!!!
And this is just another “Overseas Contingency” Sorry, I’m calling it what it is, a WAR. And I’ll continue to keep calling a Spade a Spade.....Walks like a Duck, Quacks like a Duck....gee, it must be a chicken!
The uniforms I saw were definitely Army (ACU).
I did one guy say, “Marines”, so it appeared to be a joint operation.
Ping for great viewing
Either way, pretty good video. Also shows the fire discipline, confining fire to only the structures which had CONFIRMED activity coming from them.
Gotta love that!!!

This has to be the most blessed country in this world. Where else but the USA can we find 18 20 year olds to volunteer to be Warriors for their country and to bring the blessings of freedom and peace to others less fortunate than us? I am oh so humble in the gratitude and respect I hold for these sons/daughters of the USA. I know I am preaching to the choir when I say on this site that I love our men and women in uniform; too bad that the feeling isnt universal in this country. There are those that think that they are above giving honor to our troops. There is a disease that infects all of them and it is called liberalism/socialism.
OK I am off the soapbox now. When you see soldiers, thank them and shake their hand and offer a silent prayer for their safety.
Any idea as to what that box like device was forward of the front bumper?
