A lot of spectacular videos have come out of the Middle East recently. These videos, courtesy of the various militaries that are fighting the Islamic State, show just how outgunned Islamic State fighters really are.
One video shows a fighter, it is unclear to which nation or group this fighter belongs, using an anti-tank weapon on a terrorist who is hiding in the rocks.
There is no description with the video, so it is unclear when or where this video was shot, but it is safe to assume that it was filmed somewhere in the Middle East as the video has Arabic writing on the bottom of it.
The video shows the fighter firing the massive weapon, then cuts to the terrorist attempting to climb up a rock embankment. The terrorist’s back is to the camera, so he never sees what is coming.
The rocket enters the picture, and then BOOM! There is a massive explosion, coupled with an incredibly large cloud of dust, and the terrorist is no more.
Talk about overkill.
The Middle East has so many advanced weapons floating around that it is even impossible to say for certain if the person who fired the anti tank weapon is a “good” guy.
The United States has given many anti-tank weapons to the so-called “moderate” rebels in Syria, many of whom have committed serious atrocities.
The Iraqi army has also received hundreds of these weapons, though several have fallen into the hands of Islamic State fighters after the Iraqi army’s collapse.
Generally, one would imagine that these powerful weapons would be used to take out a tank, but I guess using them on a person climbing up a mountain is just as effective.
