Have you ever heard that good things come in threes? For those into children’s literature there is Three Little Pigs and Three Billy Goats Gruff. For those with a sweet tooth, a Three Musketeers. If you are into 80’s sitcoms, Three’s Company. How about three dead terrorists?
During a covert intelligence operation in Iraq an SAS sniper killed three ISIS fighters. With one bullet. From over a mile.
The reconnaissance team was forced to abort its primary mission when it noticed the murderers were going to shoot into a crowd of women and children attempting to flee from the terrorists.
The sniper, whose rifle was fitted with a suppressor to reduce noise, fired his once-in-a-lifetime shot.
The bullet first struck the man holding the machine gun in the head then hit a second terrorist in the chest. It passed through his body, ricocheted off a wall and hit a third man – who was in the same room – in the neck.
The only disappointing part of the story is that the first two terrorists died instantly. Fortunately, the third had a good thirty seconds to ponder his virgin paradise. Good things really do happen in threes. I’m sure Chris Kyle is looking down upon this sniper with pride in his heart.
