Afghan Combat Footage

I recommend you watch this footage from Afghanistan. It involves an incident in which two land mines explode injuring three US soldiers. It is strange footage in that it is simple and even calm, not what you would imagine to be a typical casualty scenario in Afghanistan. Comments eagerly requested on this one.

It's a pity it only injured them!

This should technically be OK in Mr Leddy's mind as the Afghans are defending their land from occupation (re. IDF massacre of peaceful protestors)

I support the NATO effort in Afghanistan against the medieval Taliban but yes, I do make a distinction between attacking the soldiers of a foreign country and deliberately massacaring innocent civillians. One is much less sinister than the other. But since the Taliban do both, no distinction is required.
