Usually I'd be hesitant to accept a submission that involves an army that's engaged in an active war, but after watching that video I'm more than happy to accept this. Shooting at a fuel and explosive filled missile from such a short distance is the height of stupidity as far as I'm concerned. Thanks, Cliff!

War is never amusing... these poor kids don't know what they're signed up for... but he shot at a fuel-filled missile... that's definitely not intelligent!
