First person IED blast from Afghanistan

First person IED blast from Afghanistan

Some may find this disturbing but it is the reality of war. Helmet cam footage of an American soldier hit by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in Afghanistan. The soldier survived, but injured.

I don't quite understand why bombs, mines and boobytraps are called "IEDs" all the time. Is it to make them sound somehow less dangerous - as though the people who plant them are just boy-scouts playing with some old fireworks? They are devices with explosives in them that go BANG. Improvised or not, it's a frikkin' bomb.

I think the term IED is to differentiate from landmines or other anti-personnel or anti-tank explosives that have been mass-produced by weapons manufacturers. To me, the "improvised" part makes them seem MORE dangerous - less predictable, less known.

You ignorant Fückwit. As stated: Drones, Helicopters, Cruise missiles, artillery, smart-bombs.... None of these things are 1-on-1, and you're clearly not too bothered about killing innocent people. True Muslims who follow the teachings in the Koran are as horrified by the extremism as we are. You just want to kill them all: you're no better than the extremists.

I sort of understand the marine's(?) comment above yours, Humpty, but your point is very well made. Perspective is all.

please don't take the guest who claims to be a Marine seriously. He is a Troll trying to make you angry at Marines by saying stupid things. I am a Marine and none of my Marines in my unit believe this way. And please don't think we kill indiscriminately with helicopters and other devices. Military members are human too, and though we do believe in what we are fighting for, none of us singed up for a massacre, or to kill civilians. and don't believe for a second IED's only kill military personnel. Our Corpseman treated more civilian wounded from IED' than any other wounded or injured.

Yeah, it's a shitty way to wage a war and I hope he's alright but when you see Apache helicopters strafing a tower block trying to kill a sniper you can't help but think the sniper hasn't been there long and the children living in the apartments above and below would be better off without all the incoming bullets. America seems to have mastered the art of indiscriminate fire.

England has always been fair and balanced in the way they've waged war throughout history. Never being brutal or tyrannical in it's methods. You're all fuucking saints. Shut the F*ck up you Welsh cock sucker.
