Ѕоldiеr gеtѕ stаbbеd whilе stаnding guаrd at thе Тоmb Оf Thе Unknоwn Ѕоldiеr



If there’s one thing that makes the US military the best in the world, it’s this: discipline. And there’s no better example of it than this video.

Fact is, no matter how much money you want to pour into an army, if the army isn’t well-trained and conditioned to obey orders, you’re not going to get anywhere. Discipline, discipline, discipline. That’s the difference between victory and defeat.

And the best gauge for discipline on the field of battle? Discipline off the field of battle. If a soldier does what he’s supposed to do, even when there are no lives at stake, you know you have a good military. Which is why it’s a good sign when a soldier standing honorary guard doesn’t move, flinch, or quit. Even when he stabs himself in the foot.

The Conservative Tribune reports: A video taken of the Changing of the Guard ritual at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery captured the extreme discipline and professionalism of our soldiers. The relieving of the guard usually goes without a hitch — most of the time.

However, a video by YouTube user H Heman captured the moment when something did go wrong — and it also revealed how soldiers reacted when it did.

The Tomb Guard Commander accidentally lost his grip on the rifle, causing the bayonet on the rifle to pierce the guard’s foot. Amazingly, the unidentified guard’s expression never changes. He winced in pain but remained composed as the ceremony continued.

And my favorite part: He even finished the ceremony with blood coming from his shoe. Considering you’re on your feet the whole time, the soldier’s professionalism is remarkable. He’d have to be feeling the pain with every step.

Observe, and marvel:

If you’ve forgotten, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is guarded at all times, with changes every hour or every half hour. It’s one of the greatest displays of loyalty and honor in US military history. This Guardsman is a fine example of that same honor. Hats off to him, and to all US servicemen and women.

Keanu Reeves is a real-life tactical firearms training expert



When Keanu Reeves trains for a movie role, he takes it seriously—and his preparation for John Wick: Chapter 2 was no different.

As the Men’s Fitness cover star prepared to once again play the expert assassin with a love for dogs, he immersed himself in martial arts work, fight choreography, and plenty of gun training. And by the looks of it, Keanu Reeves might’ve been ready to become an actual assassin.

Shooting instructor and tactical expert Taran Butler helped teach Reeves all he needed to know to shoot a vast arsenal of weaponry. Whenever you see Reeves kicking ass in John Wick, it’s (mostly) him doing the stunt work.

From martial arts and rifle shooting to peeling out in a parking lot, getting the realistic look needed to make the movie work required Reeves to put in a lot of hours of training before filming.

Here’s another video of Keanu Reeves doing his training, intercut with some action from the movie. Keanu Reeves at Taran Tactical shooting like he means it. GOT Wick? Because he sure does. Get Whicky with it!

John Wick: Chapter 2, directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, and Ruby Rose, is a blockbuster action movie. It’s the highly anticipated sequel to the 2014 hit original.

Kurdish female sniper dodges bullet; laughs it off



INCREDIBLE footage shows a bullet flying past the head of a fearless Kurdish fighter on the frontline in the battle against ISIS.
The video posted to Twitter captured the moment the female sniper giggled after narrowly avoiding a terrorist killer’s bullet.

In the clip, a young woman can be seen peering from a vantage point above a battlefield in Raqqa, Syria.

As she steadies her aim a bullet flies past her head and smashes into the wall behind her, just centimetres from killing her.

But instead of recoiling in horror, the fighter laughs the threat away, sticking out her tongue and crouching down to talk to those around her.

Journalist Hemze Hamza, who posted the video to Twitter, said: “Kurdish women know no fear.

“Your average human being would be scared for life after being so close to death but she kept laughing.”

The Kurdish sharpshooter is believed to be a member of the all-female YPG fighting group who have roughly 7,000 members.

ISIS jihadis are said to believe they will not receive a reward in heaven if they are killed by a woman – leading scores of females to sign up and fight the terrorists.

It comes as it is announced a US-backed operation by Syrian forces to capture Raqqa from ISIS will start in the coming “few days”.

Thousands of troops are ready and waiting to wipe out the sick terror cult once and for all in a daring raid on the jihadi capital in Syria.
