  1. There is so much wrong with that video

    First off, all of the weapons are (presumably captured) weapons of American or European origin. You can clearly see an M-16A2 with M-204 grenade launcher propped up on the wall behind al Zarqawi. The light machine gun that he's trying to shoot is made by a Belgian firm, FN Herstal. The Belgians call it the minimi (yes, pronouced, "Mini-me") and the Americans call it the M249 S.A.W. (Squad Automatic Weapon) All of these weapons are chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO/.223 Remington.

    Despite that fact, everyone in the video is clearly wearing web gear and magazines for Kalashnikov rifles. WTF?

    An even bigger problem is al Zarqawi's complete lack of gun safety. When he turns around at the end of the video he totally covers the head of the guy shouting "Allahu Ackbar!" with the fully automatic SAW. I think his finger was on the trigger too. If I was that guy, I would have said, "Fuck it, I'm not working for this army anymore." after that.
