Look at the Infantryman’s position as he lays in the prone position.
Feet laid flat. Only the untrained has their toes straight down and heels straight up.
The Indian Army are doing this to standard.
Thank you for posting this thread
Islam delenda est
Today being Thanksgiving, I am very thankful for our troops who have left their families to win the war against terror. Their families, who carry on life temporarily without a loved on, also get much thanks. I am thankful for President Bush staying the course in spite of so much flack. I am also very thankful for not having had an attack on US soil for the last 7 years. Finally, I am thankful for people like those here at FR for encouraging us all to win the war, and especially to people like Diogenesis (and others) who take the time to post meaningful threads on this topic!
Satan has FIRM control over most of Planet Earth. How else could the “world” not have already declared full-scale war against Islam? While I hear so many arguments that “not all Muslims are violent”... It is amazing how silent so many of the supposedly “peaceful” Muslims are when such attacks happen.
Where is the Saudi royal family? Why are they not on worldwide media declaring how evil and wrong these attacks are?
Where is CAIR here in the states? Why are they not buying air time to publicly decry these events of terrorism to be wrong?
Simple answer - because in the back of EVERY Muslim’s mind - planted by not only the Koran, but by the teachings of Islamic leaders - that it is still a war of Mohammed’s followers and the rest of the world -
But you can guarantee - if it were a Christian, or an Jewish terrorist group attacking Muslims- those same groups would be gnashing their teeth and declaring their own Jihad....
Yeah... like we hear so much about those pesky Amish terrorists - bombing and shooting people in Pennsylvania...
Or why do you have your feet positioned that way?
Look because it illustrates that the forces Inia has deployed appear to be competent.
Why you want you feet like that is to keep your heels from being shot off.
It is a sign of training and attention to detail. Kinda gives you a warm fuzzy about who is in charge.
By keeping one’s feet flat and close to the ground, one minimizes the opportunity of catching a sniper’s bullet to the heel. The more one has cover and concealment, the better.
India should do the world a favor and unleash all its nuke arsenal on pakistan before pakistan knows it even exisists anymore... then israel should take out iran with a massive fury of hell raining down on the islamic empires.
Heard one newscast refer to these pukes as "militants"--
--I already got into an email back-and-forth with whoever's handling Shepherd Smith at Fox's emails re "militant" v. "terrorist".
Kill these pukes where they stand. If they must be captured, get their info fast and then kill them. If they're imprisoned they get back into circulation: Israel releases them for dead IDF; Hussein wants them to get trials with CAIR providing defense lawyers.
It's really a WAR against ISLAMO-terrorism, not "terrorism" in general, and certainly not against "militants".
Unfortunately Iran will get to build its nuclear missiles and Hussein has appointed Jane Huh-What-Terrorists Napolitano head of Homeland Open Borders.
on-toes gives the body a bit more motion; the longer shots are a bit more difficult. The more the body is like the ground, the steadier.
That and your Drill Instructor/SGT will kick you heels so hard you never forget.
It’s a strange phenomenon that when people shoot at you, your first instinct is to wet yourself. After that, you tend to only be able to do the things you’ve been trained to do under stress.
Good sources as well here for up to minute info.....
I never wet myself when shot at. Only felt the hot burn on the edges of my ears.
Soooo! Will the MSM continue to refer to this scum as “insurgents” from the “Religion of Peace”?
We need to refer to these pukes as dead.
Is the “War on Terror” still a misnomer, MSM?
Can’t wait to go back to Iraq or Afghanistan with high hopes of eliminated a few more terrorist scum from the “circle of life.”
Kill ‘em before they can breed, that’s my motto.
I think the maniacal dipshit insurgent in black and blue is using a “type 56” Chinese Kalashnikov under folder
Doesn’t mean that they’re Chinese supported. Doesn’t mean that they’re not. Unfortunately - China has sold/given away/traded/”lost” literally millions of the things, and they’ve ended up being used against the Chinese in more than one war and uprising.
You are right. I just feel that Andhra Pradesh is probably an easier smuggling point than Kashmir. Bhutahn too
BTW Bhutan is an Opium Highway.
Bet they smuggle guns too.
My bro tells me that the visa for Bhutan is 24 hrs in duration.
You cant be anywhere in 24 hrs via trail from the border.
This visa constraint is designed to keep you out
If they start showing up with QBZ-95/97 or Type 97 rifles, then I’d *really* be suspicious about a Chinese “false flag” op or support of an existing terrorist org.
But AKs? The damn things are universal now. No way to tell if the manufacturing country supported them or if they bought them from somewhere else.
Yes, but like third world border zones the world over, a bit of cash in the right spots will get that extended “indefinitely” or ignored entirely.
The last major attack in Mumbai was with type 56’s and hand grenades
True and it s huge border
Yeah, but the Chinese themselves have had to put down rebellions where the rebels had Type 56s and hand grenades. Both of Chinese manufacture, but it turned out that those particular arms had been shipped to Africa initially - and then smuggled *back* into China.
If I recall correctly, the Type 56 is a bit cheaper on the world arms market than the Russian AK equivalent.
BTW The Chinese have made roads into Bhutan and they openly dispute Andhra Pradesh with India
Yeah, I know, and there’s been speculation that the Chinese are covertly funding muj groups in India. I wouldn’t put it past them to be a supporter of the group or groups responsible for the Mumbai op, but the Type 56s don’t prove anything one way or the other, unfortunately.
Dunno about that. Dont count out China as an enabeler
They may just be a 3rd party. Easy arms.
Kashmir is in a lockdown.
I wouldnt smuggle thought there.
Threre is an army checkpoint every 100 yards
One article said they were “not AK-47’s but more sophisticated MP-6”. Not sure if that was for all of the terrorists or not. A quick search came up with HK MP-6. I’m know gun expert - but aren’t the HK’s really expensive and top quality stuff!? Are their knock-offs of an MP-6? (Just like some reporter might call any M-16 style rifle an M-16?)
Um... as far as I know, H&K has never shopped an “MP6”. They’ve sold MP5s all over the place, though.
Look at the pics of the douchebag wearing black with the black bag with blue trim full of things. He has a type 56 underfolder. Made in China
Well - here’s one site - looks like the MP6 is fairly new (and pretty much the same as the MP5?). Or - the reporter got MP5 mixed up with his I-Pod MP6 player?
“The latest in the MP5 family, Heckler & Koch engineer Erma Shumer designed the MP6 for jobs such as ExecSec, where concealable firepower is needed, it also fills a requirement for SWAT teams requiring the same power of the MP5 family, yet with greater easier of maneuver.
The major step away from the Heckler & Koch tradition is the adoption of the helical clip. Able to carry thirty rounds of 9 x 19mm caseless, it offers the same staying power. However, designers noted that to use the common diopter rear sight and front sight, it would negate any improvement to concealability. So they chose to offset the sights to the side of the weapon, and aligning them 45º so a firer can aim the weapon without presenting a higher profile....”
Thanks - I didn’t read all of the posts in detail (I keep promising myself that I will do that, but....) The only part about that picture that I like is that there is a photo - which hopefully allowed the police to kill/interogate the guy.
All of the terrs I’ve seen pictures of in this incident were carrying some AK clone or variant.
Now, if MP5s are showing up in the terr’s hands, they’re probably not getting them from H&K directly. Pakistan Ordnance Factories has been manufacturing the MP5 under license for years. MP5s were made (and in many cases still are made) under license in Greece, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, France, Mexico and Pakistan. Iran also makes MP5s, but whether these are illegal clones or licensed copies is unclear.
Interesting all the various places they are made. (I sorta figured it’d be across the street from the Mercedes Benz factory or something!).
That MP6 is a fictional weapon from the Shadowrun RPG.
H&K still makes them in Germany. Specifically in Oberndorf, south of Stuttgart... which is where Porsche and Mercedes are based.
What - it’s on the internet and its not TRUE!!??? (There was a thread awhile ago about does the internet make us smarter or dumber. Obviously dumber for me in this case!)
By the way - what is Shadowrun RPG - an internet game or something?
Ah - a game. Sorry for being an idiot. Although there WAS an article where they said some of them used MP-6’s. Of course the lady on CNN also said they used “heavy machineguns like the AK-47”.
Yeah. And they get worse than that. I once saw a BBC reporter describing the confiscated weapon in his hand as a “heavy machine gun, capable of firing over a thousand bullets a minute.”
He was holding a scoped Enfield .303. And no, he wasn’t joking.
