    What the heck is the new big deal about these? These are not new. It's a crude shape charge, or anti tank mine.

    I just saw a report on these on my local news channel (DC). :ugh:

    The true EFP's are not crude. The are precisely machined and constructed to tolerances. The media maybe be showing "file footage" of improvised containers that appear to be or are crudely made shape charges.....there is a big difference between the two. They are a big deal as to sourcing and initiation.

    Didn't mean to harsh your mellow......just trying to stave off the rabid idiocy of the media.

    As am I.
    They are just giving these alot of air time right now. Really sensationalising them. But they have been a weapon for the longest time.
