    It doesn`t seem fake to me, personally. And Ste08, read the title, it says French-Canadian. Completely different. I like how they said `stand by` in english. It`s apparently been too long since I`ve spoken french, I got very little of what they said.

    So therefore e.g. Denzel Washington, Bill Cosby, Barack Obama, Venus Williams, Oprah Winfrey etc etc etc should be considered Africans, rather than Americans?

    I`m going to call fake.. to me the missle either would fire normally as it is meant to or not come out at all.. i don`t think the release mechanism would be as soft just to make it fall out. I`ve tried to search for a new article but to no avail. What does anyone else think?

    i think its real and i think its high larious. and why do people think its fake because they didnt see it on the news or cant find an article about it... do you think that every little thing that happens around the world is documented? and not only recoreded but put out on the internet for every one to know about? im sure there are thousands of little mishaps that happen everyday that you dont hear about or read about because they never make it to the news. does that blow your mind or something?

    manorrd`s link is the better one, you get the full reaction without the lag as it launches.

    I speak Canadian French (which means I understand the Quebecois (or Quebeccer) accent and I have no idea what they say after it shoots...

    I think I hear "C`est pratique en esti les gars c`chose la" which sarcastically translates to "That thing`s f*cking useful eh guys?."

    But it`s too muffled for me to be able to decipher exactly what he`s really saying...

    if the missile was a dud, it would have flown and not exploded, or it wouldn`t have fired. the thing was pointed up so it didn`t fall out, but no actual launch happened. probably pulled by a string, eh?

    It`s because the soldier did not arm the missile before he fired. There was no risk of any explosion tho.

    If the thing wasn`t armed nothing would have happened. He woulda pulled the trigger and nothing would happen. I mean the fact that it just popped out. there`s no reason at all for it to, unless someone pulled it out lol

    That`s the danger with these nitpicks in forums, while most people nitpick for fun, some people really do believe the crap they are spewing. I`m québecois, I don`t mind a good laugh here and there, but I am always scared of people who really believe their xenophobic / racist ideologies.

    That (damn old) video was funny, and it seriously can happen to anyone. In analogy, it would be like saying a hard drive cannot fail miserably because it`s in a Mac while it can fail in a PC, shut up, it`s the same company that does both hard drives, it`s the same model :) Ooh, look at that Chrysler car, it`s driven by a frenchie, ooh, the hood oughta spring open and mayhem will ensue, it would never happen here, onoes!

    (Hey let`s answer the same way, it will be fun) That`s it for me, if you don`t agree, go hide in the arms of your sister you married at your nice trailer park home.

    AnwarNova - "lol DHise believes things in the news rofl"

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha, no.

    I follow the news, listen to what they say, and do further research upon certain material they mentioned. So it is up to me for what to believe. Ang given that this video isn`t mentioned in world news whatsoever (well, maybe in The Onion) doesn`t necessarily make me believe it`s fake. However, it does support my argument. I would think this video to be fake because why would they be operating a missile launcher that is going to fail with results that equal tragedy?
    Why is there even a cameraman there? This under a government category and whether it fails or not, no one should see it. Why would it not have been tested before they got a hold of it? Yeah sure, accidents happen. But I`m pretty sure before any weapon of any sort gets to be used by the military that it`s thoroughly tested to the extent of 100% guaranteed not to fail. Answer those and I will think that it`s not fake.

    that happened because it was made by the french. the french only know how to run, hide, screw women, wave their white flags, and speak their incredibly subhuman like language.
    this video just proves once again that the french are retarded, and will never have any kind of military vitcoty, after Napolean (by the way, Napoleon wasn`t even french, he was Italian, thats the reason why he dominated Europe back in the day)

    The way to lower the expense of health care is by creating competition not by forcing people to pay taxes for it. As soon as they realize that if you create tax cuts for small insurance companies more people will get that and force the larger ones to lower their prices.

    As far as the video, why doesnt this surprise me?

    The IAB forums are so incredibly xenophobic. Almost every single post... it`s the stupid Americans, the stupid French, the stupid Americans, the stupid British, the stupid Americans, the stupid Papua New Guineans, and a little bit more of the stupid Americans. People need to stop hating everyone from a country outside of theirs and accept every place has its mass share of idiots.

Why does everyone have to say how amazing there country is or how stupid another country is? i mean i doubt anyone is going to change there point of view from reading a comment on some website.

    3/5 of English is derived from French, so I guess that means English is more than half subhuman? Idiot. (Which is a French word, by the way.)

    I have to say that if I was actually present at said shooting, I wouldn`t have ran. I wouldn`t have pissed myself, or screamed. I would`ve likely just lowered my head in acceptance of the fact that I was now officially dead.

    Funny how all the French-Canadian people are complaining about `racism`. Try being an American, we get judged (and hated) worse. Tenfold easily.

    american= put down all others to heighten your own lack of self esteem + ignorance of ones own sense of pomposity.
    Fair comment? No. A generalisation. A stereotype. An ignorant, racist thing to say.
