A film more for Iraqi's then Americans
10 August 2017 | by benjaminhill-30605See all my reviews

I was over in Iraq during the time the real Juba was active and this shi¥bag or shi¥bags was never more then 500 to 800 yards from his targets. I say bag or bags because it was never confirmed that it was more then one guy. More over, 90% of these losers kills were of troops on post or in a convoy. Any troops on foot and this shi¥bags were faraway and running after there first shot. Dudes did what any idiot markmens could do against a large military force in his own back yard. This movie blows them or him up to be some epic sniper who's picking his targets from what looks like 1500 to 2000 yards away with what ? A M24 ? A M90? First off, a M90 is a .50 and those can reach out that far BUT lol it isn't going to wing you. It's going to take arms and legs off you and the real Juba's didn't use a M90. They also didn't use a M24 and the real M24 isn't that accurate or capable of shooting out that far. It's a 800 yard rifle with the .308 and varies between .300 win and .338 lapua.

In short this movie pisses me off because it paints the picture that ANY Iraqi was actually this smart which NONE and let me say that again NONE WERE EVER THAT SMART. The best snipers I saw were mercenaries bought and paid for BY iraqi's.
