Remember when Katie Couric asked during an interview with that marine sniper, what he feels when he shoots a terrorist, hoping he'd say something like sorrow, sympathy, or remorse? He answered simply and brilliantly, "Recoil". Here's an account of what happened when 250 terrorists recently ambushed 30 marines in Shewan, Iraq....
During the battle, the designated marksman single handedly thwarted a company-sized enemy RPG and machinegun ambush by reportedly killing 20 enemy fighters with his devastatingly accurate precision fire. He selflessly exposed himself time and again to intense enemy fire during a critical point in the eight-hour battle for Shewan in order to kill any enemy combatants who attempted to engage or maneuver on the Marines in the kill zone. What made his actions even more impressive was the fact that he didn’t miss any shots, despite the enemies’ rounds impacting within a foot of his fighting position.
“I was in my own little world,” the young corporal said. “I wasn’t even aware of a lot of the rounds impacting near my position, because I was concentrating so hard on making sure my rounds were on target.”
Holy crap! You do NOT want to engage a marine sniper.
