200+ Rounds of Incoming Fire During Taliban Ambush
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)



From the cameraman:
This is a short video of first few minutes of one of our firefights in Afghanistan. We were crossing an open field when a RPG/PKM Taliban fire team engaged us from about 200 meters away. The initial shot was a RPG that landed about 10 meters away from Alpha team but did not explode and bounced over the file of soldiers. From that point a Taliban PKM gunner engaged us with about 200 rounds. No US soldiers were injured during this engagement. (Not shown in video) After about 15 minutes of trading rounds the Taliban ran away.

    • @fsunoles10 Yes, I knew the three major religions are centered around the same God. That wasn't what I asked. I asked you which God you were blessing them with. There are over 4,000 Gods and I was just curious as to which.

      Ba'al, Tanit, Ahura-Mazda, Abbell, Jupiter, Martius, Juno, Janus, Zeus, Thor, Poseidon, etc. etc.

      Same god? I don't think so. One's a capricious prick, the next spoke in riddles, and the third was a homicidal maniac. Think I'll take the riddle guy, he's open to interpretation.

    • @fsunoles10 That makes around 50% of all the world religions (considering number of followers) which still leaves a lot of space for other gods. Although, some peculiarities make me think that it's not the same god but this is not what's video about...

  • I like how most of you who critize the military troops (No matter what country) are nothing more than X-Box armchair generals who's closest taste of combat is when you and your stoner friends fight over the last twinkie (yes I would to though) I'm pretty sure 99% of you generals would piss, shit, and vomit all over yourself the first time you were in a firefight. Nobody hela a gun to our head when we enlisted we did it out of own free will. We did it to defend those who can not defend themselves More..

    • @SAPD_SWAT That's where you're wrong. You enlisted to serve the global oligarchs under the false pretense of defending freedom.

      All you're doing is helping the Federal Reserve suck this country dry because you believe that lie that is 9/11.

      Your grand children may not ever exist because of your actions but you wear this mask of indemnity because the big scary terrorist lurks around every corner.

      The truly pathetic people are those like yourself who don't ever pick up a fucking history book a More..

    • @SAPD_SWAT I'm certainly not saying I would be able to handle a firefight. I'm also not criticizing the troops any further than the fact they are gullible to believe they're "fighting for our freedom."

      The US only goes to war to control foreign resources in Third World countries which can't fight back against us. They're not trying to "win hearts and minds" of the people because they realized their foreign policies weren't achieving that at least as far back as 1958 when Pre More..

    • @sk8tafrnk
      While I do agree with some of what you said. The current "leadership" does need to take a step back and take another look at some of our policies and what they say. As for the 9/11 which you and QuestionAuthority like to point, I was in long before that happened. While I may not agree with what our leaders say/order us to do, I do however still believe in the Constitution of the United States and what it once stood for.

      america is a great country that is good at starting wars, not winning them. You always say that the taliban are a bunch of bitches, pussies, etc. My question is, how long has the US been in afganistan fighting the taliban? answer that

They're not trying to "win hearts and minds" of the people because they realized their foreign policies weren't achieving that at least as far back as 1958 when President Eisenhower addressed the National Security Council, yet they still continued implementing the same policies.

  • The Taliban is just a group of armed terrified bitches that hide among civilians like that little weaselly prick at the gym that steals shit out if everyone's locker when no one is looking and cries like a bitch that their rights are being violated during an ass whipping after getting caught. They need to stop hiding, come out and take the ass whipping they so desperately deserve. All those years of all that injustice to all those people is gotta catch up with you sometime.

  • Every time I watch these videos I see how chaotic the battlefield is. It is pretty hard to tell what is going on and where are the shot coming from. It must be pretty stressing to "work" in such an environment, especially knowing that there can be a bullet with you name flying around.
