    Good. Fuck those guys.

    Hopefully we release this on AJ so that it's as effective of a psychological weapon as IEDs.

    yes, they have some crazy accents so they might be British but either way they are on "our side" and it was an awesome shot & job

    the worst part of the whole IED / mine thing is it doesn't just kill soliders and they don't go away when the soliders leave. they kill local children, regular civillians, etc for years and years until they are all blown up. in cambodia they placed so many mines decades after the war they are still clearing them and people are still dying from them.

    Didn't like the laughter or the commentary. I liked the result though. One guy went way up and he came down like three seconds later.

    I couldn't understand the commentary except that some person radioed in saying an IED blew up and they said it wasn't a bomb but them. I don't think that was really laughter, mostly excitement from killing people trying to kill them

    IEDs are remote detonated, not pressure detonated. I think they rarely, if ever, kill locals (unless that was the intended target).

    IED teams place them and then watch them to detonate them. If the target doesn't show, they dig it up out of the ground and try again.

    I imagine that was a bunch of Air Force guys flying the drone doing the laughing. The radio traffic was probably from the ground unit who were aware of what happened. It wasn't uncommon for IED teams to blow themselves up in the process of placing their mines.

    I don't mind the laughter. Those guys are trying to kill soldiers. Fuck them.

    This is a fact. When I went to Laos to see the "Plain of Jars" we were not allowed to stray off the course marked out due to the plethora of live anti-personnel mines still active in the area.
    I held Princess Diana in the highest regard for what she was trying to accomplish there and in many other countries with her campaign to eliminate land mines.
