Dun dun dun… Another one bites the dust… Dun, dun, dun…
Respect and props must be given to the super-senior dude for bravely challenging and then taking out the young suicide punk.
And also, much kudos to the US Coalition forces who trained Mr. Old Hero in how to spot and check potential terror-attackers.
That’s another one less terrorist alive to cause mayhem among innocent families, and one more to the 20,000+ terrorist body count.
And while the terrorist casualties increase, the civilian casualties decrease – which is bad for the undertaking business.
So much for certain Move.Onnish smear-insinuations that General Petraeus is accomplishing nothing of note.
FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU, Iraq – A 72-year-old man stopped a suspected suicide bomber from detonating himself at a checkpoint in Arab Jabour Oct. 14.
The man approached a checkpoint where Mudhehr Fayadh Baresh was standing guard, but did not make it very far.
Baresh, a tribal commissioner and member of the Arab Jabour Concerned Citizens program, said he ordered the man to lift his shirt – using training received from Coalition Forces – when he did not recognize him as a local villager.
The suspect refused to lift his shirt. Baresh repeated the command again, and the suspect exposed his suicide vest, running toward the checkpoint.
Baresh opened fire which caused the vest to detonate, killing the suspect.
“I did it for the honor of my family and the honor of my country,” said Baresh, when he met with Col. Terry Ferrell, commander of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division.
Lt. Col. Kenneth Adgie, commander of the 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment presented Mudher with a battalion coin for his valor Oct. 16.
