I know the technology in the war is light years ahead of where we were in Nam or other wars but the execution/implementation of this lethal technology cannot be taken for granted. Our guys have to be well trained, damn good and on their game all the time. As easy as it may seem to pinpoint and destroy a target, it must be equally as easy to miss one and suffer friendly fire casualties.
I pray for their success and safety every day. Wish I could do more.

That is some precision work! I swear those guys could take one storefront out of a strip mall and never disturb the shoppers next door.

With the enemies we are facing, a single B83 would do a whole lot better. Messier, but effective.

Right. The video is very satisfying from a blood lust standpoint. I just wish that there had been some context that shows the intelligence and planning that caused each of those strikes.

Hopefully bad guys died in each strike - but from the videos perspective it would be easy to believe our intent was to destroy Tal Afar!

Balderdash. The hits were directed with extreme precision.

The concept of innocence is flawed. A warrior who does his fighting from home should expect the deaths of his family. Families in a hot zone are expendable. They are not innocent. They are enemy.

Great video
Did you check out the comments after? Some flake calling names and saying it should be hand to hand combats, it's unfair of us to use technology against the poor insurgents. Wasn't worth signing up to slap this POS down.

Looks like some Fiskish Brit posted the only comment on this movie so far (on the YouTube site). How I long to feed that troll.

It's a fast acting landscape redistribution tool.

>>> The hits were directed with extreme precision. <<<

Agreed - I don't argue that. However I have seen Apache Gunship, AC 130 and Predator videos where context was given.

In them you heard the intercom and com conversations discussing - "hit this group, don't hit that group' and "avoid hitting that building - the little one next to it is the target" - "the guy with the mortar tube, nail him"!

This kind of stuff gives a realistic and more complete picture of how its done - this video gives no confirmation that it is not just wanton bam bam bam.

The danger in this video with its lack of context, is that those against the war can distort its significance in a negative way. The "Apocalypse Now" type music doesn't help its credibility either.

Can anyone provide a link to the actual video file itself?

I collect these types of videos and would like this one for my collection...

Great warm 'n' fuzzy stuff, thanks for posting it.

I do agree that it would be better without the music.
