Recently a military assault rifle was used in Thailand to shoot at protesters. In what can only be described as one of the more bizarre chapters in the many bizarre chapters of known provocateur, Andrew Spoooner, he is now claiming to have interviewed South East Asia’s foremost military experts about what happened.
While this certainly could be true considering how many ‘foremost military experts’ there are in South East Asia, it is interesting this particular military expert can not tell the difference between an Israeli Tavor assault rifle and a short barreled M16/M4 style assault rifle.
In the eyes of an expert these rifles might look incredibly similar but to the normal untrained non-military experts eyes, the differences start to become apparent.
If one is to study these two images of firearms for an extended amount of time, it is possible to start to notice some very subtle differences between them. Please note this is not a task to be taken lightly as South East Asia’s foremost military expert was not able to do it.
If we look back at the picture of the gunman and the rifle he is carrying, we can zoom in on the gun and take a better look at it.
We can then compare this to the muzzles on both the Tavor and a short barreled M16/M4.
At this point a leap of faith must be made. One of South East Asia’s foremost military experts has been fooled by the similarities in these two firearms so I will leave it up to the reader to make up their own minds.
It is a rather daunting challenge but see if you can out-expert South East Asia’s foremost military expert. Go ahead, give it a try!
