Dear Mr. Hajji,

The Ruchnoy Protivotankoviy Granatomet 7 is a fine weapon when used correctly. It is a marvelously simple mechanism designed to project 2.6 kilograms of high explosive formed into a shaped charge capable of penetrating 330mm of Rolled Homogeneous Armor.

It was designed and issued to the Red Army in 1961 to be used a self-defense weapon for infantry squads against armored vehicles at point blank range. The launcher is a simple steel tube with bare-bones flip-up sights.

It is NOT, repeat NOT designed to be cocked up at a 45 degree angle and launched in the general direction of some vehicles that are probably 500 - 750 meters away. Even with the patented "Will of Allah" guidance system, the Mujahideen in Afghanistan who you deludedly believe you emulate preferred to fire at a maximum range of 80 meters. The book says you can hit point targets out to 300 meters away, but that's just advertising copy, surely you don't believe the advertising copy of Godless Communists, do you?

Personally, I believe you were fortunate to drop it as close as you did, but the general effect was more 'look at the pretty fireworks' rather than the 'I fear the mighty Mujahideen of Ramadi!' that you were going for.

Have a nice day, please try again soon.

Incompetent enemies, a boon and a bane. A boon because they're easy to kill. A Bane because they lull you into a false sense of security. Stay Sharp!

Personally, I am fond of the footage of unguided RPG's fired in the general direction of helicopters or other aircraft in flight. You should probably point out to Mr. Haji that Uncle Sam looks dimly on such activities, as pretty as such fireworks are likely to be. You should further point out that, even in the highly unlikey chance that such an RPG comes close to an aircraft, there are other aircraft in the squadron. The pilots and crews of these aircraft are likely to put a well-aimed 7.62, 20MM or 30MM round into you and any of your buddies that are nearby. However, it does look good for 20 seconds on the evening news. Do they get CNN in Hell?

Where did you think Constant Negative News comes from?

These are the same people whose idea of marksmanship is putting an AK47 on full auto and spraying from the hip.

The problem with killing the dumb ones is that only the smart ones are left. These are much harder to kill.

We can pray, however that Mr. Jihadi in all of his incarnations,
whether dumb or smart, dies early, often and cheap. Or that he joins us.
