    Ambush on a convoy

    Here's a little video of a couple our soldiers protecting our freedom in a convoy. Don't worry, everybody lived through this one. But after watching this clip, it made my daily trip to work seem not so bad anymore. Here's the link: Convoy Ambush Its from www.filecabi.net.

    A friend of mine encountered a similar situation, running convoy as a contractor. Interestingly enough, he was faster with his pick handle than three Iraquis were reloading their AKs. 3 for the good guys.....

    Man, I would probably crap my pants if I saw 3 AK's pointed at me. But I guess it would be different if I was in the similar situation and the "fight-or-flight" reaction took over my digestive system and pumped up my adrenaline.

    That's actually a State Department motorcade, run by Diplomatic Security agents with military and contract personnel. That particular run happened a year or two ago.

    Which explains the suburbans, right? BTW, how did you know this? I just saw the video and was really tripped out about it and kinda gave me a look at what my uncle (a marine) does when he goes and "visits" Iraq. Also, what kind of explosives were those?

    Pretty sure that was a hand grenade which went off in front of the camera.

    Those "SUBS" better have run flat tires and some up-armoring, too. When I was active duty, the doctrine was if caught in a vehicular ambush drive your A$$ out of the KZ any way possible! PDQ! But I guess in Iraq the techniques aren't quite the same. To really get kills you'd have to be trapped in a no movement situation and quite obviously, the vehicles in the video are able to maintain a high rate of speed.
