Apparently I'm not the only one to have been trained this way. I got this from another message board, made up of vets. The discussion was
violations of the Geneva Convention:
"swiftcut, this ex-Tank Commander was trained that it is against the GENEVA CONVENTION to kill troops with .50 Cal BMG. Can you say: TROOPS IN THE
OPEN ! FIRE ! FIFTY ! ON THE WAY ! The US routinely violates the RULES of Engagement. So what. Some enemy sign the Geneva Convention and some do not--
the .50 cal tears them all apart the same, bro. It is all a 'RIGHT SHOULDER' social engineered killing game. The Top Kick Battle Field killed
NAZI's in Italy before you and I were born... "
Darn, another site speaks about it too, but seems to be down.
Anyway, I knows what I knows! The instructor clearly said you could only use it against vehicles and equipment. He then said that a canteen is
equipment, and shoes are vehicles! Of course, that was supposed to be a joke, I'm sure.
