    Helicopter Kill Movie

    My dad gave me a link to this movie showing video footage of a helicopter (AH64 Apache perhaps?) taking out some targets. It may be a little upsetting to some, a bit gruesome, but it is still riveting to me. I really don't know if I should be more disturbed than I already am by it. After the first guy gets it, looks almost like the second guy tries waving a flag/shirt to surrender.

    I had seen it before. Freakin loved it. The second guy wasn't waving, he was pulling something out and throwing it behind him. Waving involves the hand going over the head, if you look at his positioning his left arm comes stright out behind him.

    And I know some bleeding heart will go "ahh they didn't need to kill them" but we don't know what those people were doing. Its kinda like those police beating videos where all they show you is the guy getting beaten without showing you anything that lead up to it.

    Wow, that's crazy. I don't think I've seen military video of up and close action like that before. It's usally just planes hitting targets from far away.

    whatever it is I think I should have one so that I can use it to go hunting with

    )

    I have a 20 mm cannon round, and I do believe that is what the apache has, it's either that or a 30mm round, but when you get rounds that bit against people it's kind of a moot point. It's cool because those helicopters have an eyepiece and the pilot just has to look and the gun points where they are looking

    It's a big 30mm cannon if I'm not mistaken.

    it actually makes me happy to watch these videos. Unfortunately, I have gotten to the point where I feel human life is irrevalent and so these movies are starting to get old.

    I think it's certainly nice to see people who have the same character as Saddam getting wiped out, but I don't think I'm quite at the "human lives aren't relevant point". Maybe you should see someone...

    They fired about 20-30 rounds each burst, and and used about 100 the whole clip...that's a lot of ass kicking.
