I loved it.

The production values need a little help -- maybe some talented FReeper could polish it up and sell it to MTV (Ha).

OUR MILITARY IS MADE UP OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE BADASSES IN THE WORLD!!!

I can't believe the military put out that video. Beautiful. Glad to see that they are producing things like that.

Have you seen this site? It has some really cool video on it.

One of my favorites is the gatlin gun video, about 2/3 of the way down the page.

cool military videos

Meh. I found the added music and the MC rip-off text to be lame.

A text intro would have been enough, along with leaving the images to speak for themselves.

I really liked the soundtrack.

Dick, I'll give it an 8. You can't really dance to it, but it was catchy. However, I think a better tune would be:

"I am the god of Hell fire

and I bring you...

FIRE!!!"

"Random Acts Of Senseless Violence"
performed by ANTHRAX (1995)
from the album STOMP 442
lyrics by Scott Ian & John BUSH



Shut up, don't pass the blame
The same god-damn thing just the name's have changed
On the day you were busted your forgot the line
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time
An animal's acting instinctively
Glorified murderer, insanity
Do you think I'd kill you just count to one
You're the coward, with the gun

Yeah, you thought you knew me
Yeah, you hardly knew me
You don't know me
I know I shouldn't care
My crazy senses of right and wrong that can't be made to break this,
break this, break this

I see something wrong and fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line, this cross I came to bear

So now you're dead well wha' dya know
And am I sorry no, I don't think so
They wanted sympathy now that's a bit much
How much did you show, how much
Take the value for one human life
And place it all right down on a roll of the dice
And a one, two, three for the pain you bring
I'm the bird without the left wing

Yeah, you thought you knew me
Yeah, you hardly knew me
You don't know me
I know I shouldn't care
My crazy sense of right and wrong that can't be made to break this,
break this, break this

I see something wrong and fix it with my hands
I walk a thing blue line, this cross I came to bear

Random acts of senseless, random acts of senseless
Random acts of senseless, random acts of senseless
Violence

I see something wrong and I fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line, this cross I came to bear
I see something wrong and I fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line and I'll be the one who laughs when,
You die

Ditto
A voice over from the controllers would have been cooler - esp if they added how they spotted the fire team to begin with

Make it a "cradle to the grave" production, so to speak.

I got to see Hellfire missiles being tested in the early 80's. I worked for a company that provided autonomous-controll of old M47 tanks as target vehicles. The HF would blow the shi* out these tanks. It was cool ... I knew then why they called it "Hellfire" ... but this video makes me jealous.
