[Great Video] Taliban Scum Thought They Were Well Hidden When They Fired On American Troops…They Thought Wrong

Cowardly Taliban scum thought they were safely hidden in the hills when they started shooting at American forces. After one shot from the enemy, the Americans quickly surmised their position and started returning fire. And it didn’t end there, after placing some automatic fire from an M2 mounted on a  Humvee , which got their attention pretty quickly, the ground forces called in air support and turned the Taliban’s hiding place into dust.

Thankfully there were no service members killed in this instance, although one man was slightly wounded in the leg.

It took its name from the weapons designers Vasily Degtyaryov, who designed the original weapon, and Georgi Shpagin, who improved the cartridge feed mechanism. It is sometimes nicknamed Dashka (familiar form of female name Daria) in Russian-speaking countries, from the abbreviation.
