Warms the heart, eh?

Anyone remember back in 2000 or 2001, the Israelis sent a cobra gunship to shoot up Arafat's personal Mi-8 helicopter while it was in its hangar?

That was some funny shit. It hovered there lazily, pumping 20mm cannon fire one round at a time into the hangar, all caught gloriously by news cameramen.

Mausoleums, I think, for the uber-rich, or whatever that passes for if you're Iraqi.....

Nothing like getting killed in a cemetary. All they have to do is throw a little dirt over what's left of your body parts.

Those are crypts and masoleums. That's one of the biggest cemetaries in the world, over a square mile in size.

And on the plus side, we don't have to take 'em far to plant them.

It is a city. The city of the dead, AKA a necropolis.

Is anybody really suprised at that cemetry's size?

Those are some of the oldest cities in the globe. On top of the face Saddam probably doubled it's size while he ruled over that country.

Look at globalsecurity(?) there a satellite photo, the cemetary is HGUE, occupies at least as much ground as the rest of the town. The whole NW quadrant is cemetary.


and 'bye-bye IDF ladies loading your Uzis, I've got another desktop courtesy of arfcom.


EDIT - duh, vito beat me to it.

Forget the dirt, just let the ferrel dogs in to eat the bite sized parts laying about and be done with it.

Would be hard for Hamilluja to service them virgins with his tool being turned into a dog turd.

Switching the cannon into low firing rate… 750 rpm mode, and tapping the trigger should do that trick, same a MG gunners can do with M240's and M2 BMG's.
