They always say you shouldn’t bring a knife to a gunfight. By the same token, you shouldn’t bring a tinpot group of terrorist savages with a medieval outlook on Islam to a fight with an actual trained military.
A group of fighters, allegedly with the Islamic State group, found this out the hard way when they decided to shoot at a Russian-made Syrian fighter jet with machine guns. One of the fighters made a recording of what happened, and it wasn’t pretty (for the fighters on the ground).
The video began with a MiG-21 being recorded off in the distance. The group of fighters can be heard yelling over the machine gun fire directed at the jet.
However, machine guns aren’t particularly good at taking down warplanes, nor is screaming “Allahu Akbar!” as these fighters were doing.
The MiG-21 turned and drew closer, and ordnance dropped from the wing.
The cameraman tried to run but is knocked down by the force of the explosion.
