Dissident Frogman:difference between cartridge and bullet
first off, I apologize for posting a link to a video. but I do want to point out that I'm not going to be a posting 'hore and put the link up and that's it.
and I thought about putting this in a couple of places, but it is firearms related.
and the guy's website, that I think is getting \.'d from all the hits.
has a rockin' bollywood music soundtrack toward the end.
it is worth loading flash to watch it.
here is the text of the message I got in email with the video link:
Subject: RE: French Mime Provides Training for Journalists in Iraq. (Comedy video).
A few weeks ago, AP ran a story out of Iraq which showed an elderly Iraqi woman holding up two unfired rifle cartridges, (the bullets were still in them).
The report claimed that US (coalition) forces had shot at her house during a raid in which they were targeting insurgents and/or Al Qaida. She held up the two “cartridges” as evidence. The report claimed that these two cartridges had “hit” her house. AP’s reporters were apparently ignorant enough about firearms to believe this at first, and ran with the story. After a few hours, they must have realized what a hoax this was, and they pulled the story down. But it was too late. The photo was all over the internet and the AP looked like the south end of a north bound horse.
Well, a French Mime has created a video to train journalists in Iraq on how firearms really work. Enjoy this video from You Tube. It is funny. You know what they say, “GREAT MIMES SOUND ALIKE!”.
PS Watch the footage after the movie credits, too...
