  • Hand grenade vs. insurgent car (video)

    US troops chased insurgents out of a village and captured their car. To add insult to the injury, the car was destroyed with a hand grenade.

    Just some good old boys having fun at the expense of terrorist. You know, kind of like throwing a stick of dynamite down a rattler's hole.

        I'm really getting tired of these "Hero" videos. Stupidiy knows no bounds. Much like the Marines from 2/8 who tossed a frag in a washing machine, they're lucky no one was injured.

          I do agree with you that these activities are rather stupid. But, one part of me kinda enjoys it. These are young men who get shot at almost everyday. Why not have alittle fun to reduce the stress.

          As I said these are young men and they will naturally do stupid things. I remember a story from my Dad who fought in the Pacific in WWII. He would chill his beer by setting a fire with gasoline (DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!). He said the beer wasn't frozen but it did have a good chill to it.

            Before you ask. He put the beer in a pit and covered it. He then set a fire above it and the air being sucked in would chill it. I never tried it, so I can't testify exactly how he did it.

              To be fair Bryan, you've personally been on the wrong side of the explosion so you are probably more sensitive to this than most. But I agree there should have been an NCO on site exercising a little more positive control over these troops. While they were wasting time and ammo on that car, who was maintaining local security?
              Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.
