Should We Be Proud?


Canadian snipers in Afghanistan after September 11th made the longest recorded kills in history with this weapon. On a March afternoon in 2002, Cpl. Furlong of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) squinted through the scope of his McMillan TAC-50 and successfully killed an enemy combatant from 2,430 m.

Irony would be to learn that the guy in fact shot a friend instead of a foe !

Andrew Nichol's Lord of War was a very good movie about weapons and arm dealers. One of the things that struck me was that out of the first 5 most weapons selling coutries, 4 had a siege on the world Security Cousil.

So, should we be proud ?
