Soldiers unload automatic grenade launcher on a guard tower in Iraq

(Warning: Graphic Language)

When it came time to pack up military bases in Iraq some things had to be demolished or deconstructed. These soldiers were instructed to take down this old guard tower but no one ever said “how.”

“How” ended up being a 40 mm belt-fed automatic grenade launcher capable of shooting 60 rounds per minute.

What happens in Iraq usually stays in Iraq….unless you record it.
