Watch An Air Strike Take Out Taliban SnipersCapture
This is just another example of the unpredictability of war. Soldiers were standing around their post when a sniper round lands between them, definitely something these soldiers were not going to let happen. They intercept their radio signals and they hear that the 50 cal missed and they’re ok…wrong answer.
Having the 50 cal gunner shoot to spot an area and a jet to drop some freedom bombs on it took care of the issue. The Taliban didn’t think the soldiers could respond to their nestled area, they obviously need to learn what the U.S. military is capable of at all times.
