A term made up by governments so they can tack on extra punishemnts if you do something to someone of a different race.
Killing is killing, it shouldent matter what race the murderer or the dead guy on the floor is.
I shot someone, but he was black so i get an extra 10 years because shooting black people is a 'hate crime'...
The name for the US military's current close air support aircraft. It can carry a multitude of missiles (Maverick), cluster bombs (CBU97), and guided bombs. It also carries the General Electric GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling gun. It is as large as an old Volkswagen Beetle, and has 7 30mm, quick rotating barrels that fire armor penetrating rounds.
The Iraqi Republican Guards shit their pants when they heard the cry of the A10's turbines and the yell of the GAU-8/A.
A Howitzer is a powerful, automatic loading artillery cannon. The current artillery in the USA military is the M109 Howitzer. It is mobile and can fire many, high explosive rounds at far away targets. Howitzers are generally used for support or to soften up an area before said area is invaded.
Before the massive assault on Fallujah during Operation Iraqi Freedom, starting in November of 2004, Howitzers fired many rounds at strategic targets to soften up the area, then fired during the invasion when soldiers needed support.
