Iraq Sniper Tapes Surface

Yeah, I heard all about that.

To be honest, I believe there are several snipers all of which are continuing the whole 'Juba' aura. I wouldn't be supprised if the Americans have already slotted several "jubbas" already....

Gimmie a combat knife, I'd sniff him out easily. The muslim's adversion to good old British Bacon produces a rather distinctive feremone that is easily detectable to a highly tuned nose, such as mine.

I would assume, judging from those videos and other similar videos I have seen, that the shots are made 200-300 meters out (max). As the ex green beret sniper dude (the fat bald fecker) said, this guy was clearly a trained and/or clever man, good fieldcraft etc.

I have a pile of these Juba video clips. T(he)y are filmed by a couple of different methods. In one you can see the graticule pattern with the didtinctive range finder from an SVD, in others the video is taken from next to the weapon, and in more it is taken from another perspective.

Weapon wise, an SVD sounds right, there is one where tracer is used and I'm assuming an MG round is substituted. Theres some good shooting (ability wise) he hits a head shot with tracer at what appears well over a hundred meters, the tracer shows either cockiness or amateurish behaviour, I cant decide which, if anyone wants to see them, and has a way, drop me a line.

They will learn.....just as the IRA did
and there are enough unscrupulous and dishonorable people to teach them.

I don't know about the rest of you but I find watching squaddies get slotted rather distasteful. Not exactly on a par with cartoons of make believe gods is it?

I dont find it satisfying. However I do find there is often a lesson to be learnt in each instance.

Indeed. I don't think many people weigh in enemy snipers into the equasion anymore, what with the 21st century "digital battlefield" and all.....

To see an enemy sniper, especially one who obviously knows what he's doing, is a welcome wakeup call. It should be.

Time to roll out the coalliation sniper teams and get them hunting the bugger down sniper-on-sniper.

I agree. I'm not trying to incite fighting or anything, but someone needs to burn the beurocratic nonsense and send some specialist troops out without being labled as 'war mongerers' or anything.

All I meant was, don't glorify this cnut any more than the web has already.

Agreed . I know no one would attempt to post the link to the videos here. Those could just as easily be our people getting hit out there.

“Watch and learn, watch and learn!” A picture is worth a thousand words. One would hope that something constructive has/will have been learned by the viewing of this and other videos?

Yeah, don't get out of your armoured truck.

I am sure any trg wing worth its salt, would be using this but letting 'them' know we watch it will only encourage other like minded fcuktards.

Lessons, yes but with the right measure of commentary which these pics don't have.

I was pointed towards these clips, and the original 'Juba' stuff, earlier in the year and very nearly posted the link. But thought better of it. I did a search for 'Juba' and the web threw up a whole host of links and comment so I thought there was no need to re-post what is essentially propaganda, even if it's already in the public domain. I believe it was also featured in Zoo / Nuts magazine t'other week.

However, whilst not wishing to propagate what is disturbing footage, I hope OPTAG are aware of it and it has been highlighted for research [as it were]. For we all know what happens in the north will make its' way south.
