UPDATE: SGTMAC has left a link to a helicopter that this looks like, the Russian built Hind D. He also linked to a list of which countries use them currently and I list a few choice contenders…. Afghanistan, Libya, Uganda, Syria, Yemen and … the United States. Libya folks? Do you think our “professional jihadists” could have shot that video in Libya perhaps? The plot thickens. Thanks Sgt. (looks a lot like the Georgian chopper if you ask me)… wait minute… here’s the Libyan Hind D I think we have a winner.
UPDATE: Weapons were being illegally shipped from Libya to the FSA terrorists in Syria on a weekly basis. It’s like Iran-Contra has become the model for how we run our foreign policy.
A new amateur video has popped up from Hillary’s FSA professional jihadists (read as “the new Contras”) purporting to show a Syrian helicopter firing White phosphorus shells on a civilian area near the town of Maraiya in Deir al-Zour province.
The Washington Post is uncritically reporting on this as fact and though they do happen to mention in the latter stages of the article that the United States used white phosphorous shells in Fallujah in 2004, they happen to forget that Israel used them extensively on civilian areas in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. I guess they forgot so here is a reminder…
You see, this is what happens when someone uses white phosphorous shells on civilian targets, the people filming it actually film the stuff hitting civilian targets. This comes from the Israeli military’s attack on Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. notice how it differs from the FSA video?
