New world record set for longest sniper kill in Afghanistan

Unconfirmed report in the Telegraph says that an Australian sniper team using Barrett 50 rifles recorded a kill shot at 2815 meters in Afghanistan. Breaking the previous record held by British Corporal Craig Harrison at 2475 meters.

According to a report in the Telegraph newspaper there has been a new record set for the longest kill shot in Afghanistan.

GPS aids supposedly "measured the distance the bullet traveled at 2815 meters", beating the previous record of 2475 meters for a confirmed kill.

The shot was taken by a commando sniper team in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

“Through binoculars at a distance invisible to the naked eye they spotted a group of Taliban. The soldiers having means of identifying targets went through a process of obtaining verification and permission to engage. Two marksmen using Barrett M82A1 50 caliber rifles simultaneously fired. The bullets were six seconds in the air. One killed the Taliban commander. It is not known for certain which sniper fired the fatal shot. While there have been no triumphant press releases, in the tight global Special Forces sniper community the shot is much discussed, because it seems certain to be a world record”(source: Taliban remain in fear of lethal strikes, writes Chris Masters http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion... ).

The M82A1 50 caliber is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle developed by the American Barrett Firearms Manufacturing company. A heavy SASR (Special Application Scoped Rifle), is in use by many units and armies around the world.

At that distance the targeted Taliban would not have heard the gunfire that killed him.

The article noted that the previous world record achieved by British Corporal Craig Harrison occurred also in Helmand in November 2009. Firing from a distance of 2475m, Harrison killed two Taliban.

Anti-Semitic graffiti and flyers have defaced shops and walls in Rome’s historical Jewish San Giovanni neighbourhood raising fears of a rise in anti-Jewish sentiment in the capital.

Swastika graffiti and posters reading “Anne Frank storyteller” have appeared on Appia Nuova street. Other posters depicting a Palestinian throwing a rock towards an Israeli tank were attached on walls in Cola di Rienzo street, in the leafy Prati neighbourhood. The latter was accompanied with a Celtic cross and the slogan “Each Palestinian is a camerata [the Italian word for members of Mussolini's fascist movement] Same enemy, same barricade”.

The Jewish community in Rome is reputed to be the oldest Jewish community in Europe and also one the oldest continuous Jewish settlements in the world. A surge in anti-Semitism following Israel’s military operation in Gaza has been condemned by Italy’s foreign minister along with France and Germany.

Unlike Paris, where troublemakers clashed with police and attacked kosher stores and synagogues, including several that were firebombed, Italy has not seen any major anti-Jewish incidents so far. However tensions fuelled by conflict in the Middle East erupted in Rome at the beginning of the month."

A Florida State University criminal law professor was pulling into his driveway and talking on his cell phone when he was fatally shot, ABC News has learned exclusively.

Professor Dan Markel, 41, was shot July 18, dying hours later.

Markel was alive when cops arrived, with the keys in the ignition of his car, before being pronounced dead at the hospital hours later, police said. Markel was apparently on the phone at the time of the shooting, remarking to the person on the phone that someone was in the driveway, ABC News has learned.

A police report has revealed more information about the shooting, specifying that a neighbor, apparently different from the person on the phone, heard a single gunshot. That neighbor called 911 and reported seeing a silver Toyota Prius drive away from the scene. Police later released a grainy surveillance image of that car.

Slogans often times are the major talking point of a candidate-silly. Remember "Al Qaeda is on the run."

You post a whole bunch of info that has NOTHING to do with the US position at beginning of World War One--they took an isolationist stance claiming they had no interest in the events. Also noticed you are carefully avoiding the issue of Wilson trying to mediate a solution that would make all parties happy--yes, Patrick, that is the purpose of mediation.

Did any of these attempts at appeasement keep us out of World War One?

PINK FLOYD LYRICS
"Wish You Were Here"

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

You are attempting to deny the obvious by blaming the victims.

Europe in the past decades has allowed a surge of Muslim citizens into their countries. These are the individuals involved in this behavior. Scratch a Muslim and you have an infidel hater--anyone who is not Muslim.

Let's not go to who--between us-- has made the most absurd historical comment lately
You would win that hands down!!

You stupidly try to accuse others of denying terrorism exists.

When in fact no one ever said such a thing..........

Or that Wilson appeased someone in WWI.

But you won't say who!! HAHAHAHAHA

And you didn't know that Wilson was selling war material to Britain while we were still officially neutral..........

""Allow me to set the record straight. The greatest outrage in Reppetto’s account came from the Wilson administration, which turned the US into perhaps the chief supplier of arms to the Allied side. Wilson’s decision in 1915 to allow American arms manufacturers to sell to both sides was a belligerent act directed against the Central Powers. Only one side was in a position to acquire American arms, because Germany at the time, as everyone knew, was being blockaded. The English blockade, which was aimed at starving the Germans, arguably in violation of international law, also kept arms from reaching Germany and its ally Austria-Hungary.""

Obama ignored the Republican plans, so did Reid. The Republicans did present several plans that were better than ObamaKare,but since Obama decided that he would ignore them,our country suffers. The Republican committees that provided plans all had Medical Doctors on the committees. No Democrat Congressmen that worked on ObamaKare were doctors.
