Al Nusrah Front video showcases more American-made TOW missiles

The Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, has released another video showing its fighters using American-made TOW missiles. As The Long War Journal reported earlier this week, Al Nusrah released a video featuring a TOW missile attack in the early hours of the jihadists’ newly-launched offensive against Syrian regime forces in the city of Idlib.

Al Nusrah continues to use the weapons against Bashar al Assad’s forces. Earlier today, Al Nusrah released the video shown above on one of its official Twitter feeds. The fighter, whose face is obscured, fires two TOW missiles on Syrian tanks. The video footage shows one of the tanks creeping above the horizon before it is destroyed…

    As Soviet generals later admitted, the Americans gave them the tanks, vehicles and supplies (“Lend/Lease”) without which they would not have been able to march on Berlin. Looks like another, similar, foreign policy triumph in the making here.

      FDR was also a Democrat. Of course, despite his blunders, he at least also had some accomplishments, i.e., didn’t lose WWII outright, just set us up for the long cold war that followed.

    Why can’t they simply design these types of weapons with kill switches that can be activated via satellite?

    I mean come on, even smart phones can be wiped and bricked remotely.

      Obama would only give them the codes, and they could make ours inoperative.
