#1 an Iraqi commando rooted through a storage bin looking for explosives, repeatedly kicking a plastic cassette player that turned out not to be an improvised explosive device.

Favorable conjecture is that it scared the beejezus out of him and when it turned out to be harmless he commenced smashing it.... I can dig that.

#2 US SPECOPS "MIDNIGHT AT THE OASIS" ...

versus

* TOPIX, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > TURKEY + IRAN VIE FOR CONTROL OF IRAQ.

* OTOH WAFF > [US] FEMALE SPECIAL OPERATORS NOW IN COMBAT.

Actually, more correct to say in rear = safe area "Cultural Support Teams" [CSTS] vee Muslim Babes, albeit in combat theater.
