  • Snipers, gotta love them

    Man I love this pic:



    Snipers in fiction are usually described as ice-cold killers, and I'm thinking there might be some truth to that :).

    I have no idea how much truth there is to this story as I found this through an Icelandic link sharing site, but I still love it. So blunt. So cold.

      You don't see it?

      It shows a pic of a guy lying prone behind a Barrett .50 and a caption:

      A CNN reporter, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked, "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?" The Marine shrugged and replied, "Recoil."

              Yeah I see it now. That's a very old quote that goes back a long way. If it is in fact a CNN reporter asking the question... they did so after it had been asked before. :P Most people don't understand the Marine mindset. But I'll bet the person was shocked at the answer.

                    I can't even fathom the mentality of those who have taken a life.

                      It's a light hearted retort to a stupid, insensitive question from some blow dried Geraldo wannabe. Seriously the crassness of the question is what you should be shocked at.

                      Military snipers have rules of engagement, they can and will only engage targets that have met the ROE. This usually means the delightful individual in the cross hairs is in the process of attempting to take another persons life either at that point or shortly in the future, possibly multiple lives. To some degree its the cleanest most honest form of combat, only the selected individual is killed, much more accurate than a bombing campaign wouldn't you say.
