Insane.


#2

I haven't played Counter Strike in a long time....looks more real now.


#3

If you haven't seen the movie RESTREPO, you should go see it. IMO, the best military documentary.


#4

just watched that movie on netflix last week. it was a really good watch.


#5

The director got killed in Libya a week ago..


#6

Is that US SF or a PMC SF ?

The Kalashnikovs and gear they are using makes me wonder this.


#7

The guy with the helmet cam is SF (sounds American), the other guys are Iraqi soldiers.


#8

the guy with the helmet cam seems to be US but the other guys are Local Military/Police. helmet cam guys gun is an M4 or maybe a FN SCAR (hard to tell)


#9

Was he one of the journalists that were killed? Chris Hondros and Tim Hetherington?


#10

The latter, Hetherington.


#11

What no way, read his obituary. Much respect to him and condolences to his family. I believe he was Canadian


#12

M4 not SCAR. Love watching some of these vids.


#13

Was that a flashbang that went off halfway through or the muzzle flash of the other guys rifle?


#14

It looks like it might be the other guys rifle misfiring or a round hiiting his rifle.

Impressive vid. Pure professionalism on the part of the US guy.


#15

Was he blind firing into the room? I can't really tell.


#16

Doesn't seem like it - just a weird camera angle.
