It wasnt bad enough to close the Consulate..... however, it was bad enough to deploy military troops with a fully-automatic belt-fed 40mm grenade launcher? Mexico has lost it's fucking mind and the US is being dragged to Hell right along with them.

Yup, without at least a three round burst what you have there is a really big, really expensive 9mm pistol, with a long barrel and a collapsing stock attached.

That's what I was asking! Only for some reason my picture wouldnt work.

Also, that M4 in the first picture is sweet. Call me old school but there's just something about the plain jane M4. Don't get me wrong, I've got a few tricked out ARs with all sorts of things hanging off them that I don't regularly use, but seeing a standard M4 over there is very cool.

When these boots are clean they are almost red. Not very tactical, but in order to earn their "red boots", IDF troops have to go through jump and airborne training. Those ugly boots are highly coveted by those who don't have them.
