The Tale of Abu Othman. A common Iraqi, turned Resistance fighter. Motivated by the presence of U.S occupation forces in Falluja, took it upon himself to learn the skill of Sniping.

Learning this skill from downloading Manuals on the Internet, grasping the rudiments of mathematics and physics required to calculate the range of a target, playing shooting games on his Playstation, and studing films such as Enemy at the Gates and The Deer Hunter.

Abu had become a hero to the resistance fighters, and the Falluja locals. Claiming the lives of 20 US soldiers, many of which were officers.

Hala Jaber, Baghdad

WITH elbows bandaged and knees padded for comfort, Abu Othman lay face down on a Ramadi rooftop and cradled his Russian-made sniper rifle as he waited for the tall American soldier to appear.

The soldier’s habit of urinating into the street from the top of his Bradley armoured vehicle had angered Sunni Muslim inhabitants of the tree-lined suburb he patrolled. It was not the urinating as such that offended them; it was the way he exposed himself regardless of whether any women were around to see him.

In the end an old man came forward to demand his death. He complained to insurgents that the soldier had strafed his street, destroying several cars and a trailer at a cost of thousands of dollars.






Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Its clear that this story is bogus. The Author makes many claims of Abu Othman dispatching victims from ranges of 1,000 metres or more, with his SVD Dragunov. But this is not possible with Abu's inadequate, or should i say comically ridiculous training.

Not to mention that out of the few American soldiers killed by snipers in Iraq, most of which are not in the area "Sunni Triangle" in which he claims. And of course there is no mention of a high ranking officer being killed by a sniper, while negotiating a ceasefire in Falluja.

This may be just another fantastic tale from the Jihadists. Like the story of divine giant spiders killing American troops in Falluja. Or how they figured out a way to get around the electromagnetic shields on Abrams tanks, by rubbing mud on their RPG warheads. These are nothing more than wild tales to motivate these Jihadist losers to fight to the death.

Perhaps it is more than just a Jihadist tale. Maybe it was a poor attempt by certain media individuals and radicals to create a hero, a new Vasily Zaitsev or Che.
