Man drove through hail of bullets into US airbase.......

Postby DuncaninFrance » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:18 am

A US Airforce base in Suffolk suffered a major security breach when a driver forced his way through the main security checkpoint.

American military guards opened fire as the car travelled a significant way inside RAF Mildenhall after passing through a hail of bullets - stopping just metres short of a military aircraft, The Telegraph understands.


A spokesman said: “Shots were fired by American service personnel and a man has been detained with cuts and bruises and taken into custody.”

What are they using now - Airsoft :roll: :roll: :roll:

Good thing the Air force base was in a country that keeps terrorists from having guns. Maybe the gate guards were shooting at the tires. Or....maybe they were shooting at the driver and, in their confusion, thinking he had to be on the left seat instead of the right as it sped away. Or.....since they were in the Air Force...maybe each guard had to load his gun first before shooting. Like those Marines in Bayreuth back during Reagan's time when that compound was blown up while the guards were loading. Or.. come to think of it.... what if they had British police guarding the gate? Would that have been better? :GBR: No guns, just ,"stop in the name of the law" commands and billy clubs, right? :loco:

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
