The list is long of things I don't understand about that region and it's conflicts...least of all why someone might be carrying a feather duster, or wearing a children's live preserver in the midst of battle....or jeans and/or a hat ANYTIME. Isn't it like 120 friggin degrees in the sun?

That's actually the spring which popped out the bottom of his magazine, meaning; no more ammo for him in the immediate future. It appears he's racking the slide in attempt to clear, what he thinks, is a simple jam or misfire. Heh....heh.

I read somewhere that a great deal of west african revolutionaries are high out of their minds on some sort of amphetamines.
If you can read that into the pictures it might help a bit.

Looks like Liberia.
Life preserver = team colours. Armies there are more like street gangs.
Feather duster = fly whisk.
There's a Polish journalist called Ryszard Kapuscinski who writes on Africa, and goes into some of the beliefs that Africans hold or have held - including looking on guns as being part-magic. A bullet is considered too small to do much damage, so it must be some kind of witchcraft that actually does the damage. Aiming won't make much difference.
Beliefs like that have led to the even more bizarre spectacle of men fighting in drag - the idea is that when Death comes for you, he won't recognise you and will pass you over.
Here's shock and awe, West African style:
and Ryszard on Liberia (long), I'll try and post the article on bullets and witchcraft.
