Someone just sent me a video taken over in Iraq of a suicide bomber who failed at his mission. He was helped along by some guys in the 47th & 319 EOD who sent a robot over to take some pics of the guy then plant a charge.
Anyone have any suggestions on where I could get it posted so people could watch it? It's not a situation where people will see body parts blowing all over the place but it isn't for anyone who's a democrat if you get my hint.

I wouldn't post that anywhere. I think your military friends could get in a heap of trouble if there is anything on that tape that could be used by the left. I think there is a military wide ban on sending pictures from any war zone. Correct me if I am wrong.
It's been sent to a whole bunch of people....
Subject: Video of suicide bomber being "assisted" XXXXXXXX forwards this sequence of a suicide bomber in Baghdad, who attempted to ram an explosives-packed car into an Abrams tank and destroy it.
The attempt failed; all the explosives in the car did not detonate. The car was partially destroyed and the driver wounded, but he was still capable of detonating a further charge. This was a very dangerous situation, so the Army and Iraqi police closed the road to traffic, and an ordnance detachment used a tracked, remote-controlled robot to approach the car, take pictures of it and its dazed driver, then place a demolition charge beside it, and "assist"the driver in completing his own suicide.
Even after destroying the car and killing the driver, a package of several undetonated artillery shells and land mines is seen remaining on the pavement. In the last frames, they seen being blown by the EOD people in a field at a remote site. Note the size of this explosion, which would have taken place beside the Abrams tank, if the suicide driver's car had originally detonated as planned.
The accompanying description reads as follows:
"The pictures and video are from the EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) robot you'll see in the video. If you look closely in the picture of the inside of the car you can see projectiles and? explosives used as the primary explosive charge (you'll see them later as? well). The guy is still alive and can still function the device, so what do you do?
Army EOD? knows; just place an "explosive disruption tool" under said
vehicle to "disrupt" the explosives and their initiators... along? with the suicide bomber.
Good video taken by an EOD? robot. Interesting! Pass along."
I got it!
Well, if you consider all of Iraq a war zone, your wrong.
It's not working for me (and I usually can get everything to work)
Was that a "D" for Germany sticker on the guy's car?
I just clicked it and it works....
According to John F'ing Kerry, terrorism is a law enforcement issue. So it's not really a war zone.
Did I say that all of Iraq was a war zone? I just know that a buddy of mine who is in the army was telling me that some of his friends got busted for sending pics and movies back from Iraq. I didn't know what the movie entailed and thought I would pass it along since my friend told me that the military tracked where the tape originated through email servers on the base and weren't to happy with the person that originally sent that movie out.
If it is of action, I would tend to agree with you.
I don't get it... why didn't they just shoot him?
I copied the url and loaded it into my Windows Media Player. Worked great then.
On another note...damn, by far the uglier ones seem to make up the bulk of suicide bombers. Guess it makes sense (insofar as one can make sense of fanaticism).
He's sitting on a load of deadly bombs. They didn't want to get near him AND they needed to dispose of the bombs. BOOM the robot charge solved both problems.
I think it's a bad idea to disseminate this. It creates sympathy for the homicide bomber, by showing his handsome face and his misery as he puts his head in his hands in his last moments. The last thing we want is to create any more sympathy for the terrorists than they already receive from the left. People who watch it may not understand how military decisions are made, with pragmatism and our troops will be depicted as heartless.
Bye Bye Bomber
M-1 tank setting right there. One HEAT round and it would have been Miller time. Or make it more fun and chew it to shreds with the .50 cal. Gotta let the nerdy tech guys have their glory tho....
It was fun watching him die.
Fun for us. People who are easily swayed, people who are "moderates," swing voters, and women will be dismayed. Remember that we're in a war not just for the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people but the hearts and minds of the American people. And the armed forces are vividly aware of this.
"That's gotta hurt!"
I love that part! How can I download that video?
And the idiot just sits there while the bomb bot looks him over...
Exactly....a $250,000 solution to a $1.99 a round problem.
Welcome to Allah-World. Please take the elevator down to the lower level.
Thanks. I downloaded it from your link.
Speaking for women everywhere, I had fun watching him die. Now, womyn are a different matter, but they don't matter.
Would have been far better without that damn annoying music.
Do I detect some sarcasm there?
Had bad news from good friends of mine. His son was wounded in Iraq. Many details, just a little shook up right now. He survived, they were ambushed, (his name is Justin) shot from head to toe. My heart goes out to him and all, he survived, but from what little details I hear, he's on his way on the way home...apparently taken to Germany to place a rod in his femur, he lost his knee cap, an ear, and a finger. We expect to see him as much as his rehabilitation allows, and he will be welcomed with open arms!
I think you're wrong. It was his choice to waste his life.
I'm far from being a "womyn" or a soccer mom, but the soccer moms and average women do matter. We are trying to win the votes of the women who voted for Reagan--women who are on the fence.
< Would have been far better without that damn annoying music. >
I agree. I had to turn the sound off.
Well, he doesn't appeal to my particular taste but there are others who would find him attractive.
Sure it was! He was an evil psycho and I'm glad he's dead and in hell now. If he hadn't gotten blown up under these circumstances he would have taken innocent people with him. I am only thinking of the PR import of a video like this to people who don't quite get it the way Freepers do.
"..but there are others who would find him attractive."
As much as anyone could find a psychotic murdering maniac attractive, and the goats don't count.
I'm not certain anyone but Freepers will see it. And there are these kinds of video all over the 'net. Some DUers may find their way over here but they're moonbats normally so it won't make a difference.
*sniff* I love a happy ending...
I hope you are right.
Yep we got this same day it happened in our after action reports........Allah Fubar !
Thanks for thinking of me !
