So the UN is at it again with the disarmament crap. How many people are they going to get killed before they knock it off?

Thanks for the pics by the way.

Am I the only one who feels like all these "militant sniper" photos are staged well away from the front lines?  I get pissed because these "journalists" are trying as hard as they can to romanticize these assholes.  I keep seeing photos like this of "heroic rebels, fighting the infidel invaders to save their holy city".  I can't help but think that if they truly were near the front lines one of our snipers would ventilate them.

I don't know.  What I do know is that some Iraqi scumbags are about to die.

Italian military police in Iraq (news - web sites). The Italian government insisted it would maintain its 3,000 troops in Iraq despite an ultimatum from an Islamic group holding an Italian journalist and demanding that Rome withdraw its forces within 48 hours.(AFP/File/Ahmad Al-Rubaye)

I like that setup on his rifle does anyone have any idea what scope that is and what kind of rings are those they look like throw levers on them.
