Gruesome fighting video from the "Liberia Crisis" (WARNING: GRAPHIC)
e-mail ^ | unknown date | Sky News

Posted on 12/10/2005 10:51:38 AM PST by HighWheeler

Very graphic video of the Liberia Crisis. I can't imagine how they could think this plan was a good idea.

Do not open if you are disturbed by deadly violence.

Probably small arms fire, but the two guys up top were taking a lot of hits.

Not violent at all unless you're terrified of asterisks and question marks. I saw no pictures, just symbols and a couple of letters scattered around.

Yeah, I thought so too. Although, I imagine the guys in the truck had a different opinion ;-)

It has to suck living in the third world. Has to suck even more when you are stupid.

Some one got an angle on them and pasted a few of them nicely.

No great loss to civilization.

Ever wonder what it must be like to know that you're locked up by a Javlin?

To hear the rocket whisling overhead, knowing that no matter where you go it will follow, staying locked onto your heat signature as you drive down a back alley, hearing the rocket whistle get louder and louder, until the shaped charge whistles down from above @ mach 1, turning you and your toyota into a twisted hulk of charred metal?

Now that's a video I want to see.

"They took out that gunner pretty good."



I'm wondering about what the gunner's mate up top was thinking that morning after he woke up. "I think I'll wear my bright, highly visible, electric-yellow shirt for luck today." It looked like he took at least four shots.

Could someone elaborate on this? I thought that Liberia's problems were settled with the election of this new woman president. Liberian friends are so happy and excited that they're planning on going back to Africa for the inauguration. Now it turns out there's ongoing violence? What's up with that?

Re: is that what you are using?

I use VLC. It's a free player that plays *any* video file in the planet.

Also lets you take snapshots of the video and turn video into your desktop wallpaper.

It also streams shoutcasts and bunch of other stuff I've yet to figure out.

Try this-- right-click and use the "save link as" option. It will copy the file to your default download folder, and you can then run Media Player on it.

"...I apologize for saying this but you do not yet know what "graphic" means."

-- -- --

def. - Graphic: graph·ic adj. also graph·i·cal (-ĭ-kəl)

1) Of or relating to pictorial representation.
2) Described in vivid detail.
3) A pictorial device used for illustration

I'm not sure what definition you are using, but "Graphic" as I used it sure seems to fit the standard defintion. Maybe you are now informed.

I posted the warning for anyone who is disturbed by violence. For others like you it does not apply.
