I'm really glad that she is on our side.

Subject:  Cheerleader.

  A story  with a happy ending!

 The  ex-cheerleader (age 19) and now an Air Force  Security Forces Sniper in this picture was  watching a road that led to a NATO military base  when she observed a man digging by the  road. She engaged the target, and she shot  him. Turned out he was a bomb maker for the  Taliban and he was burying an IED that was to be  detonated when a US  patrol walked by 30 minutes later. It would have  certainly killed and wounded several  soldiers.

 The  interesting fact of this story is the shot was  measured at 725 yards. She shot him as he was  bent over burying the bomb. The shot struck him  in the behind, blowing into the bomb, which detonated. He was blown to  pieces.  The  Air Force made a motivational poster of  her.


 (Folks,  that's a shot taken 25 yards longer than seven  football  fields!!)


                    I WOULD SAY THAT SHE IS A CRACK SHOT (No Pun Intended)

Regardless of the politics of this post, I will concede that 700+ yards is a nice shot...

(Credit where credit is due, etc.)

Yeah, I don't even really see the point. She's a good soldier and an expert shot -- the simple fact that she has a combat post would seem to mute the wingnutness of the post somehow, wouldn't it?

The motivational poster is a bit off, though. Almost seems to be making fun of her...?

Well, like most wingnut posts, this one has heavy doses of fiction:


What wingnuts really like about this "story" is the thought of a sweet little girl shooting a dirty evil Muslim man in the ass without a second thought.

Yes, it's another fanciful Jennifer Lynch story of American womanhood taking it to Ahmed and coming out with her virginity intact. In case you wonder what the wingnuts really see when they look at her, just check out the "unintended pun" (yeah, right) at the end. Who cares who she actually is as a person? Let's just put her on a pedestal to the glories of Woman, aka a vagina with legs.

Raises the interesting question of how much more equal her status would in wingnut land versus Arab culture. I bet that somewhere in the Middle East there are posters of female suicide bombers with copy to the same effect. After all, we all knew that sex and death are a potent combination for certain men.
