British Paratroopers have filmed themselves fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan and posted it on the internet.
The video – set to an Eminem track – features fierce firefights, a helicopter dropping supplies and a soldier firing a rocket launcher.
It starts with an expletive-filled warning to “Terry Taliban” which concludes with the lines, “So do one Terry, you’ve plenty to fear, we run this town, the Paras are here”.
The video, which has become a hit on YouTube, was made by members of the 3rd Battalion of the Parachute Regiment (Wikipedia), whose motto Utrinque Paratus means “Ready For Anything.” The troopers involved in the video returned home to Britain last month after a six month tour Afghanistan.
The rap song is Eminem‘s Lose Yourself.
