- Unknown snipers reportedly killed both Venezuelan government and opposition protesters in the attempted 2002 coup
- Unknown snipers allegedly have created bedlam in Syria

Brutal … but effective and cheap.
Because it doesn’t cost much to hire one or a handful of snipers to access rooftops or bridge overpasses, create chaos, and then quietly disappear.
