Or maybe it's the signal to bring out the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

I've heard that point men in Viet Nam invented a hand signal to indicate that they'd spotted an ambush. Supposedly, the signal involved both hands behind the back. One hand had one finger extended, the other hand was flat over the first one.
The signal supposedly meant "I'm effed, cover your (selves)".

That would just about cover it too.
I do know that when I was an aggressor in the Air Force, there were a couple of times I got a hand signal,(universal), when I made a bit too much noise and started a firefight. :doh:
