ISIS Attempts to Shoot Down Russian Jet

Well that just made my day

The thing about ISIS is that for every time they do something absolutely horrific like say, massacre 50 people in the streets of Paris before gunning down another 80 in a concert hall, or blowing up a passenger jet, or say, drowning “confessed spies” in a cage, they do something completely ridiculous.

It’s a dichotomy that makes the whole thing feel kind of surreal at times.

Well, in the true spirit of ISIS buffoonery, we present the following classic video which appears to depict ISIS militants attempting to shoot down a Russian fighter jet using only a truck-mounted machine gun and a spotter who uses his thumbs to gauge the distance.

But perhaps the best part is the narrator. Or actually, the captions which frame the entire spectacle as though it were a terrorist episode of Jackass .
