SEE IT: Little boy learns how to fire grenade launcher on Libyan beach
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | July 28, 2014 | Joel Landau

Posted on 07/28/2014 11:31:29 AM PDT by EinNYC

A disturbing online video shows a young boy being trained to fire a Rocket Propelled Grenade along a beach.

The video shows two adults with the child at the empty beach in Libya, according to the LiveLeak member that posted it.

The dangerous weapon is taller than the kid is but after some guidance and encouragement the little boy is left alone to point it towards the water.

After a few moments he does fire and appears unconcerned with the noise or the smoke that gathers all over him.

The man standing nonchalantly behind him then cheers and gives him a kiss.

Hey!
You tell me that you wouldn’t like to fire an RPG.
It is just a father/son thing.

What?

Your family didn't teach you how to shoot?

Who hasn’t taught their child how to fire a weapon?

In a sane country, you’d be right.

This is Libya, so I’m not sure.

If I told my oldest daughter we were going to fire a grenade launcher, she'd be very willing, and also would want to bring her friends.

Obviously not directly behind him.

I often take my son out to shoot a few RPGs. They're cheaper than .22s.

Imagine what these Democrats would say about Camp Perry, Ohio, this week? It’s only a matter of scale...

If my family had an RPG we’d teach our kids to use it. I’m just not seeing the problem here. Especially for a family that lives in a hellhole like Libya where knowing how to fire an RPG can be the difference between life, death, or even slavery.

Looks like an endearing father/son experience to me.

The only reason my kid doesn’t know how to fire an RPG is I don’t have a stockpile of RPGs in the gun safe.

(It would have to be a really, really big gun safe...)

Our kids are punished for chewing a pop tart the wrong way. Who do you think would win in a war?

If you don’t teach you kid about RPGs, they are just going to pick it up in the schoolyard...

I remember being taught to throw a baseball at the age of seven.It wasn’t till I was nineteen that I was taught to throw a hand grenade at Ft Knox.

We have got to close the RPG loop hole.

When children have RPGs no ice cream truck will be safe.

I learned to shoot about that age.
But my dad couldn’t get a bazooka or a recoiless rifle for me to try. I had to grow up and go into the army. Horrible!

In an insane country, you need these skills even more!

Hope he taught junior about backblast, though.

If it helps my advice is to just put the rounds in the safe and leave the launchers in your rifle cabinet. That’ll conserve on room.

So if a five-year-old is shooting missals at you, is it ok to blow him away? I guess that is the question that Israel is struggling with. And suppose they do score a hit on the kid - the muzzies will simply pry the rocket launcher from his cold, dead hands and then shoot pictures of him labelled, “Innocent child butchered by Jews.”

This video is available for viewing by anyone that comes across it - but our ubamao lemmings aren’t interesting in anything that shows Israel in the true light of factual information.

Are you kidding? In this country if a child so much as cocks his thumb and points the barrel of his index finger - he is expelled from school! Our school system is trying their best to raise a nation of sissy’s.

Absolutely. You're just as dead if you're killed by a kid as if you were killed by an adult.
