You can not simply contain radical Islam one country. They are the cancer of the whole Middle East. They come in many forms...ISIS,Hamas,Hezbollah it doesn't matter. They are all radical Islamic jihadists! I ask you what good do they bring into the world? While I agree with you here in this thread you ridicule me in another thread calling me a fear monger when I speak of the dangers of these radical groups in the world.

You can't forget pilots in the gunship with similar caliber weapon systems that light up vehicles and the aftermath when we go to confirm what the pilots did. It was either from an A-10 or an Apache, on very rare occasion there will be an F-15, but they normally drop ordnance.

as for stray bullets, no I wasn't referring to the C-RAM rounds being stray, I was referring to the insurgents that randomly fire rounds into the base, normally it is just a random burst onto the base, nothing accurate. The last time that happened, other than my dismount incident, a round ripped through the portable building where people get their hair cuts and struck a soldier who was getting a haircut. We had a bad incident where, the C-RAM missed 2 out of 5 mortar rounds coming in and hit the chow hall, 18 people were hurt pretty bad. It sure as hell scared my new guys, as it was the 2nd day they were there, and they had to witness the whole thing.

I am aware that the M246 round is supposed to self detonate after tracer burn out, but on occasion you will find that maybe 1 or 2 rounds out of a burst will not self detonate, You can usually tell when you watch the tracers, and as the self detonate you will notice a few that will just keep going and you don't see a detonation. I think what probably happened is when the other rounds detonate too close to the next one, a piece of shrapnel most likely strike the round that is about to detonate, and destroys the arming system inside the fuze, but that's just my speculation.

That is pretty sweet that the 1B Block can attack ground and water borne targets now, I can only imagine what is left after the job is done!

Yes I was MIL until I was injured from a blast in 2008, I was a Scout in the Reconnaissance PLT, I am now a civilian range master at a civilian gun range, not quite the same but it gets me through the day. I don't know too much of the terminology for the C-RAM system, I just know it does a very good job, considering what it is doing.

nice, 0351 Anti-tank Systems Gunner here. USMC 3/5 C , was 3 mikes shy of Fallujah. got rerouted at last 30 minutes of deploying out of the pigs en-route, picked up and heaved over to battle couple of heavy vehicles. then somehow got flanked in that battle, got pinned down by a marksman .... don't know what he was using but sounded a large caliber weapon of sniper class... but had two unit brothers die in my arms, one a round through the neck, the other, split his heart in half. wound up forcing to use one of my SRAW tubes to collapse the improvised tower he was in, but not before taking a round myself, though very light damage.... got that punk!! got back to FOB, found out i was at my cycle end.... promptly visited my buddies, and went home.....

i know how loud those things are, being up close for demo days of Phalanx on the Wasp, made you vibrate all through your body

Or the last Israeli.

This has been going on for centuries and will continue for centuries.

Psalm 83:1-4

O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.

See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads
With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.

“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

Looks like Gaza is in darkness tonight. I wonder if IDF took out their power plant?

Heh. That author cracked me up. Claiming CNN is biased against Israehole is quite funny. I got a kick out of it.

He is correct about some things. CNN is leftist and heavily favored Clinton. I'm not sure how that makes CNN anti-Israehole biased. Jews in the US vote heavily Democratic. 70% of the Jewish vote went to Obama. So, how is it that the "far left can't stand Israel" when they are Jews? These are often dual citizens of US-Israel.

And then there is this little tidbit about what Jews think of Clinton and Israel:

Quote:
Eighty-two percent of American Jews support a two-state solution; 76 percent want the president to put forward a peace plan, and 84 percent support the appointment of former president Bill Clinton as a special envoy.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/13/op...vote.html?_r=0

And then there is CNN's main man, Wolf Blitzer:

Quote:
Blitzer was born in Augsburg, Germany,[2][3] the son of Cesia Blitzer (née Zylberfuden), a homemaker, and David Blitzer, a home builder.[4][5][6] His parents were Jewish refugees from Poland, and Holocaust survivors.[7] He was raised in Buffalo, New York. Blitzer graduated from Kenmore West Senior High School and received a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University at Buffalo in 1970. While there, he was a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi. In 1972, he received a Master of Arts in international relations from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. While at Johns Hopkins, Blitzer studied abroad at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he learned Hebrew.[8]
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/13/op...vote.html?_r=0

And then there is the claim that CNN's founder Ted Turner is somehow proof that CNN is anti-Israel biased. Ted turner doesn't own CNN. Time Warner does.

CNN is highly Pro Israehole biased in it's reporting. Hell, even RGR has been using CNN links. It's the propaganda station I watch daily.

Conservatives and liberals say the goofiest things to attack each other.
