“Abraxas Spa” posted this picture on Twitter: “Afghan Commandos in a breaching exercise, with what seems to be DeWalt quick-saws.”

The picture can also be found at Resolute Support Mission on Facebook.

With a photo like that, a lot of questions were raised.

Like why is he running with a firearm using a disc cutter as some kind of vertical grip?

Unfair advantage? Perhaps, but he’s missing the magazine.

After some investigation it seems we found a related photo, and who took it. This also gives some more information about the background.

Afghan Commandos deny safe haven to the enemies of Afghanistan.

Regardless of weather conditions, time of day, or location, Commandos stand ready to defend their country. With nighttime, building-breaching, and even air capabilities, there is nowhere for the enemy to hide.
