Teacher Taught

It was just another routine day in class.

Beheading class, that is. In Syria.

On this occasion a British SAS sniper gave the class a day off by skillfully decapitating the teacher with one shot from 1,200 metres away.   That's pretty fancy shooting in anyone's language.

A .338 Israeli made rifle was used.  Apparently the bullet tumbles end over end through the target.



However, you have to laugh at the Yanks.  They had to put up a photo of a US Marine posing with a sniper rifle.

Don't be so gullible Adolf, it never happened. This was filched from the UK Daily Mail whose sole purpose is to scare the middle classes with unverifiable nonsense.

1/. The Special Air Service personal NEVER talk to the media or anyone else EVER
about where they are or what they are doing. This of course allows shite papers
like Mail to print crap without being held to account.
.
2/. The do not use the Israeli rifle.
3/. High powered boattail rounds do not tumble. It is the kinetic energy that does the damage. It doesn;t "blow your head off" just a goodly bit of one side.

Legbut, you must be getting on in years.

"

That may have been so twenty years ago but much has changed.

Have you not heard about the exploits of Cpl Willie Apiata?

There have been many other verified reports of British SAS Activity in the Middle East over the last few years.

Two things Adolf. The British SAS are not the NZSAS and you are confusing books written long after an event with events on the ground as they happen. There is as much chance of official confirmation from Credenhill as the US navy declaring a nuke on the NZ customs declaration form.

The NZSAS are under the command of the NZ army, The SAS are notionally tied to MI6/SIS.

If the headline read "Three SAS troopers piss on a portrait of the queen and dance naked around an effigy of Jeremy Corbyn" you would not even get a denial.

However we wait with baited breath for the verification of your story.

For the record spire point boat trail bullets are designed to tumble when they hit solid matter. It's to do with a lot of weight toward the rear of the bullet trying to move to the front, and little weight at the front. The transfer of kinetic energy does the damage, and a tumbling bullet transfers more of the kinetic energy.

That's why the Brits were happy to sign the Hague convention (at least my faltering memory thinks it was the Hague) that outlawed bullets like the .577 -.450 produced by the Dum Dum armoury in India because they were developing the venerable .303.

The SAS are also allowed to select whatever firearms they feel are best for the job. It is possible they could be using an Israeli rifle.

Sorry Legbut but you are bullshitting AGAIN.

I am not referring to books but rather recent media reports. And no, I'm not going togdive you links. Get off your arse and find them yourself.

Hint. One report showed a British SAS member with a quad bike and a sniper rifle.

Traditionally when you call someone a liar you are supposed to provide some indication of where he has gone wrong. Are we now playing Australian rules?

All SAS war stories come from ONE source ..The UK Daily Mail. Note the date lines. They are first and then the stories are picked and printed days later in other publications.

There has been no official confirmation or denial of any of the Daily Mail stories.
The quad bike photo is NOT a member of the SAS.

Did you not say a few posts ago that I was a fool for quoting an article in the Herald??

You're forgetting Adolf is always right including when he gets it wrong.
