  3. Thankyou Pap that was the sort of comment I wished to encourage after 8 cans of Spar Special and a night of Sky News........I thought the rather panicky "Stop shooting" added some degree of realtime to the entire afffair don't you?

    CNN are showing some night vision pictures of a bunch of yanks on a roof top (shoulder to shoulder) standing and kneeling looking out over Faluja.

    One yank pop's an Illume from his 203, I presume in order to give away any night vision equipment advantage they have or more likely, just because he hadn't fired an illum in anger before.

    Another scene see's a SAW gunner open up with long bursts on something after some shots were heard (note. NOT crack and thump, just shots) - the SAW goes through 30 or 40 rounds - quite exciting for the yank viewers war on terror I suspect.

    Another scene has a sniper fire a shot and his no.2 loading the next round into the bolt action weapon. Q1) WHY? Did't the bolt action rifle have a small magazine of some kind and Q2) Why wasn't the no.2 spotting like a good no.2 should?

    Another scene has the roof top full of yanks opening up for a minute or so on a 'target' though I suspect the target will be "a road", "a building" or "I dunno, I was jus' shootin' at what ya'l was shootin at"...
