    Hope it's not a repost:

    "This sequence is of a suicide bomber in Baghdad, who attempted to ram an explosives-packed car into an Abrams tank and destroy it. The attempt failed; all the explosives in the car did not detonate. The car was partially destroyed and the driver wounded, but he was still capable of detonating a further charge. This was a very dangerous situation, so the Army and Iraqi police closed the road to traffic, and an ordnance detachment used a tracked, remote-controlled robot to approach the car, take pictures of it and its dazed driver, then place a demolition charge beside it, and "assist" the driver in completing his own suicide. Even after destroying the car and killing the driver, a package of several undetonated artillery shells and land mines is seen remaining on the pavement. In the last frames, they are seen being blown by the EOD people in a field at a remote site.. Note the size of this explosion, which would have taken place beside the Abrams tank, if the suicide driver's car had originally detonated as planned."

    Its cool blooded, but what could anyone do? If anyone got close to help the bastard, he would have killed the helpers. It was for the best to kill him. He was asking for it.:mad:

    hell yeah... give'em the 120! :thumb: I've seen pics of entry points to the Green Zone in Bagdhad where they have a zig-zag of jersey barriers with two M1s sitting behind them. Good luck pulling the Beruit-like suicidal truck bomb thing through that Achmed!
