Suicide bomber’s car rams into Iraqi M1 Abrams tank during Battle of Mosul

Published

As the Battle for Mosul ongoing, it becoming clear that it will be a long and bloody battle. Newest video compilation released by pro-ISIS media outlets shows a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (SVBIED) ramming, and then detonating, on an Iraqi Army M1 Abrams tank. The effectiveness of the blast cannot be determined from the video. The incredible footage was apparently filmed by a GoPro-style camera mounted on a drone.

The video shows various explosions and attacks on apparently military vehicles (tanks, APCs, MRAPS) in Mosul suburbs I assume where Iraqi and Peshmerga forces are designated as targets.

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.
