US Snipers Taking Out Taliban with .50 Cal Rifle? - Video

I've heard that this isn't real footage, and that these are animals being shot, but I don't know, they certainly look human to me. But, even if it isn't real, it's still pretty freaking awesome. Anyway, here is the description of the video:

Live camera shots of US snipers taking out Taliban with .50 caliber sniper rifles in Afghanistan. These are some examples of the fight in Afghanistan. These video shots are not made through the shooter’s telescopic sight… they are made looking through the spotter’s scope.The spotter lies right next to the sniper and helps the sniper to find and home in on the target. The sniper is using a 50 caliber rifle. A 50 cal. round is about 7-8 inches long and the casing is about an inch in diameter. The bullet itself is one-half inch in diameter and roughly one and one-half inches long. Pay close attention to the beginning of the video. A Taliban is laying on top of the peak in front of you… when you hear the shot fired… watch what happens. Our sniper is about a half mile away… or more. It is not known if the sniper team is Marine or Army.

Bullshit, show some Americans taking a hit, more of them die than Talibans die. Fuck America!

Hey "Guest," why don't you eat shit and die?!

Guest said...

..em ... you guys... this is not a human that blows up in pieces it is probably wildrabbits or something like a small animal....

Unless the shooter is hitting the so called Taliban target with a WW2 40mm Bofors..

LOL!!!

Only a fool would believe that this is real. It's a video of somone shootong rochchucks. Yeah, you got punked, and badly. Take a look at the “Taliban” at 0:02. You see the “Taliban” lying on the flat rock at the top, sunning himself. He's a master of disguise, because he looks astonishingly like a rockchuck. Also, get a sense of the scale by looking at the moss and lichen spots on the rocks and the crass clumps around them. It appears your “Taliban” is about 14-16” long.

Here's the original video that the fake is made from

RMVH.com is “Rocky Mountain Varmint Hunter” who sells videos of varmint hunting. The video linked contains all four of the “taliban kills” from the previous video, they are at 0:10, 0:20, 0:28 and 0:32 in the RMVH video, but not in the same order as the “Taliban” video.

That film is obviously a fake taken from the video link provided, but don't underestimate the 50 caliber Barrett rifle in the hands of a sniper.

Many kills at 2000 yards are happening, but won't be unclassified for years to come. The true war is to keep the fools from getting Pakistan's nukes.

Too true, while Guest did in fact point out the fallacy of the aforementioned "sniper" video, hes still an idiot. Because believe it or not, America, while it has its inherent flaws, is still better then most every other country out there. This is especially true when considering America in a stance comparative to other powers (historically speaking) that held such an unparalleled predominance of power (which obviously has never happened to the extent that it has with America, which actually only serves to further the argument, because then if you consider the fact that America is more powerful than the next 7-9 countries in military terms, it becomes far more impressive that we have only gone into little sh-t holes like Iraq and Afghanistan by force when we could have easily invaded more important and/or geo-strategically beneficial countries. And please, dont attempt to feed out that sad little Iraq and Afghan oil argument, its tired and wrong. If we went in for the oil, then why is our largest global competitor, China, benefitting from our military forays...) The point is, America is great, and is responsible for the technologies which our "guest" here I'm sure takes advantage of almost every moment of every day, which he has further proven by responding on a website, the spawn of American inventions. Lets see all this come about from an Afghanistan, Iraq, or even China) So yes, shut up "guest" and show some manners for once in your sad little life to a group of people who in general deserve it more so than yourself. What has your country done to benefit the global state of well-being in the last 100 years?

Not true. The video looks unconvincing.

this is video from an army sniper team, these are the taliban taken hits. Any one who said this is a video of animals getting shot obviously has never fired a 50 cal and been in combat

The video is for real you stupid jerks. I was a sniper and believe you me. I never actual kill a human with this weapon but I have personally seen some serious shit what this weapon can do and you dame sure don't want to get hit by one trust me. No matter what guest and the other moron have to say. String fellow hawk

Why dont you look at the vermin shooting video's you asses, its the same video minus the movie theatic noise added.

Yes a 50 Cal will do the same to a human body but the point is this is not video of Talibans getting shot.

has anyone here even googled a 40mm siper bullet? if so they would know there is no such weapon. the largest sniper weapon in the U.S. arsenal is the .50cal.. 40mm would make it the size of a grenade launcher. i'm amazed at what some people take for real just beacuse its on the internet..

Some of the respondents should clean up their language. Disgraceful how you express yourself. Many Americans have lost their price!

Entire ignorance is not so terrible or extreme an evil, and is far from being the greatest of all; too much cleverness and too much learning, accompanied with ill bringing-up, are far more fatal. I'm fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in that's why in peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons.

It's funny how the US sends the youngest soldiers to die in vain just to kill a few goat herders and cows here an there... I know Americans are way better than that... but we have those ignorant bastards who will say otherwise. Take some of these replies for example.

If you fuck with the USA we will kill you too. Its not a threat. Its just a fact.
