Mechanical Ambush in Syria – and Direct Action

Our friend Jack Murphy (a soulless ginger former doorkicker who looks like the world’s most dangerous freckled 16 year old) just posted about this. It’s pretty interesting, so we figured we’d share. In the quote he’s referring to the video below. FYI Jack’s new novel is out

Why yes, that was a shameless plug.

“Amazing mechanical ambush by Syrian and Hezbollah forces against foreign jihadists, or so we are told. Interesting from a number of standpoints. The enemy never massed forces like this for us when I was overseas conducting operations. Also, what was the intel piece behind this ambush? Obviously the Syrians knew they were coming, knew they would be on that route, and knew what their formation would be.” Jack Murphy

Here’s the video – things start to go pear-shaped about 1:10.

FYI you can pick up a copy of Direct Action on Amazon here: Kindle or Print.  Read more about the series here. Oh, and if you’re interested in a previous review, we wrote one about his book PROMIS over on Military.com a while back. Let us know if you want a book review or an excerpt. A couple of our flunkies have a copy.

Jack’s author page is here.

Swingin' Dick

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
