The Larch: SN1987a goes boom: schief2: The bullet-proofed embassy SUV was chased under fire and struck by 152 bullets, 40 percent of them pumped into the driver and passenger-side windows after the vehicle had come to a stop.

The CIA officers didn't receive life-threatening wounds and the navy officer was unharmed.

That's.....kind of impressive.

Now I kinda want to find out who armored the car and give them a craftsman award. Good job guys.

I'm really curious about the armor. It absolutely astounds me that the people in that car managed to get away from that with minor injuries.

There was a tight group of about eight shots clustered on the driver side window, right about where I would expect the driver's head to be. This wasn't just 10 trigger happy cops guys discharging their sidearms in the general direction of an SUV driving by at 80 mph; this was something else. What hell kind of armored glass can withstand that kind of abuse

Fat-D: Maybe a good time to ripple a few GBU-27s 2000 lbs bombs on the Federal Police HQ.....just to let them know where we stand on this issue.
Want the cartels to go away? Invade Mexico and let the USAF do some target practice with live ordinance.

Why haven't we invaded Mexico, yet?

I know, right?


LOL... yeah, I pretty much just rewrote what you had already written. I'm sorry about that.

What I meant to says write that I agree with you. When I first read about this, I figured it was similar to the incidents where a few cops get caught up in the heat of the moment and fire off 200 rounds from a sidearm in the general direction of a car, and manage to primarily hit the scenery. I imagined there were no critical injuries due to a little luck, some defensive driving, some light vehicle and body armor, and poor discipline on the part of the attackers. But you're right -- looking at that car, that's not what happened at all. That wasn't a half-assed attack, and that armor did an amazing job.
