War Nerd: Georgians Gone Wild Video Clips!

Here’s some more cool combat vids for you desk casualties. This time it’s Georgian troops shooting the Hell out of the South Ossetian capital, Tskhinvali, on the day they rolled in to retake the province after Bush and Cheney promised them the Russians wouldn’t dare do a thing. So it didn’t work out all that great, but on that first day, when it was Georgian upgraded T-72s vs. Ossetian civvies with AK-47s, our little allies had themselves a real barnburner of a time, and luckily, one of them took these vids to show his little Facebook friends.
This vid shows the happiest man in Georgia on that day (August 8), some Georgian redneck doing exactly what we’ve all dreamed of doing: rolling down the main drag of an enemy city with both hands on a heavy machine gun, looking for any civilian dumb enough to poke his or her head up. This guy actually yells, “Yee-haw!” every now and then, after firing off a short burst at an apartment building or park. It’s so much like an American “Yee-haw!” I can’t help wondering if he learned it special, from those Special Forces instructors we sent down there to teach the Georgians how to fight. He’s easy to please, this guy; he’s sitting there holding a big gun with nice easy D-grips for both hands, with a huge ox-tongue trigger he can trip with his thumb, and every now and then he fires a burst into a tree just to keep those Ossetian squirrels from going insurgent. I’m going to dream of this one for a long, long time.
This one is guys doing the same thing, rolling down a dusty Ossetian street taking small arms fire, but they don’t seem to be having as much fun with it. Maybe because this one’s filmed inside some jeep-thing that doesn’t seem to have any armament.
