FALLUJAH, Iraq -- An estimated four insurgents were killed by aviation fire after precision munitions were employed to destroy a bongo truck used to transport improvised explosive devices Friday south of Fallujah.
Marines assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5 observed insurgents excavating IED-making material from the side of a road and loading it into a bongo truck. The truck then proceeded to another location where the insurgents began emplacing the IEDs.
The Marines established positive identification of the insurgents, ensured no civilians were in the vicinity and destroyed the truck with precision munitions. The insurgents were killed by direct fire.
Approximately 20 minutes later, secondary explosions from the vehicle were observed.
There were no reports of civilian casualties and no Coalition casualties.

A lot of people care. There's a good chance those IEDs could have killed U.S. forces.
"Insurgents killed attempting to emplace IEDs"
I'm sorry, but didn't they mean "Terrorists" instead of Insurgents. Isn't that what these pieces of human debris are . . . Terrorists. What's with the term "Insurgents"? Why do we tippytoe around these murderers?
Four people closer to a better world. But what is a bongo truck?
LOL, good catch.
Not THE video but I just found our response to the Iranian claims of supersonic submarines. LOL
I believe it's a Mazda line of vehicles, or knock offs.
I'm glad you clarified that. I was beginning to think you were from DU. ;-)
Now that's funny!
LOL. No doubt.
If there had been, you can be sure the MSM would make it their headline.
"Four people closer to a better world."
"But what is a bongo truck?"
I think it is a Mazda landrover-like vehicle. I tried to search out some sites, but my institutional computer has a million firewalls, and I couldn't post an image up for you, sorry.
Video! I want Video!
