Sifting Through The Rubbish

My analysis through pictures

Love this pic! This guy is an Iraqi soldier and he looks like a bad ass, generally when you see Iraqi soldiers they have this scared and timid look on their faces. They remind me of the guys who approach you in the street and ask to shine your shoes, no honor or bravery whatsoever. Seriously look at this gun! Iraq needs about 250,000 more of these guys.

These are your typical Iraqi soldiers. Look at these goofy bastards! They look like shoe shine boys and I think the guy on the right has crossed eyes. He probably scored extremely low on the shooting test and got stuck doing kitchen duty.

Imagine this, you're in the Army and you carry this HUGE gun and you have to wear a scarf around your face to protect your identity. This guy particular is covering his face because his post is close to his home and if his neighbors find out he's a soldier he could end up a statistic.

I found this propaganda garbage on Flickr. In case you cant read the sub portion it says...

"One Person

634 American Soldiers Killed
206 American Soldiers Wounded
23 American Officers Killed
11 American Snipers Killed"

This scum bag probably doesn't know his face is plastered all over the Internet, you should have an easier time finding him and killing him, right?

By the way, I'm assuming this guy is JUBA and apparently he has returned from somewhere, I'm not quite sure where.

Hey DB, good post!

The Guns in both the pictures Soviet PK general purpose machine guns. It's an old design but that's a high quality weapon and I'm glad that so many Iraqi troops have them.

PK machine gun

Re: Juba - the "legend" was started by US troops, and media reports like this. It was American troops who called a notorious sniper in southern Baghdad "Juba" in the first place.

Elusive sniper saps US morale in Baghdad

Since February, the killing of at least two members of the battalion and the wounding of six more have been attributed to Juba. Some think it is also he that has picked off up to a dozen other soldiers.

That story was written in August 2005. So, in 6 months, he killed 2 soldiers and wounded 6 (25% kill rate is shit for a sniper, 100% kill rate is what is expected) and possibly "up to a dozen others" - so he MAY have killed or wounded 20 Americans in southern Baghdad in a 6 month period, and now he has suddenly killed close to 700, eh? Yeah. Right.

By the way, Juba is "back" from the dead, since he was killed in 2005, and it was documented. He was a Chechen.

Not too much, I hope! You seemed interested in the machine guns the Iraqi soldiers were carrying :)

And waht's wrong with "shoe shine boys"? It's not their fault that they are poor and have to do that for a living....
