I haven't seen this yet. But cripes, this is why you use bomb disposal units and whatnot. And what's with the crowd of gawkers looking in as the guy is opening the bag.

Rule number 1: If a package might have a bomb in it, get the fuck away.
Rule number 2: If you're not sure whether it might have a bomb, refer to rule number 1.

more importantly, if someone is investigating a bag that might have a bomb in it, GET THE F*** AWAY.

I can't believe how many people were looking over his shoulder.

I wonder what made some guy be up on a bridge overlooking that shoot film of a few guys hanging out????

My first suspect.

I am tired of seeing their videos. Any video fucking up one of our guys needs accompanied by a bag of terrorist body parts.

Reminds me of a story I once read from a Vietnam era Green Beret commenting on a Chinese nung in his patrol who spotted a tripwire, walked up to it, followed it off into the grass, then the idiot grabs the wire and yanks it! Bye bye Nung. The relative frequency in which stupid acts are observed is kinda scary. Makes you wonder about all the idiotic things that happen off camera!

"EVERYONE come check out this unattended bag in the middle of the street!"

"hmmmm what does this button do"?

If you haqve seen some of the guys who disarm some of the roadside bombs in Iraq they look to be just regular dressed guys with some tools. I don't know perhaps he knew what he was doing but just fucked up in a really bad way. How many boxes are just in the middle of a street, unless moved there?

what the hell....what were they thinking?????

Either that, or one of the many nimrods hanging all over him reached in and said, "Hey Ahmed, what does this do?"

That is what happens when you fark with an IED! That is why disruption tools done remotely are a good thing, a robot would have been much better too, at least you can buy a new one. You can't buy a new leg or head like that dude just lost.

then again your looking at $100,000 compared to $100 not to be cruel but another guy is just waiting for the op to make a $100 in a single day to disarm some bombs. Just to support his family.

You have to hand it to people in very poor countrys they will do just about anything to take care of their families.

One of the sad things about us we have become a wee bit spoiled.

MP's are good at that stuff, my buddy was at FT. Riley at an incident for a suspicious box in the parking lot and some MP car came roaring up and ran over the box! Needless to say, they ruled out all suspicions of the box being a device!

Still trying to figure out what country it is for sure.... wasn't Israel, or Iraq.... The Turkey comment has me intrigued.

they're all probably after a 'freebie'...


notice how no one approached to see if the guy was alive or even 'try' to help....

one guy does approach and retrieves something...

Very bizzare that no Safety protocals were followed even though you had a dude with a policia vest on. For God sake secure the area and follow some procedure.
Link Posted: 8/18/2004 7:09:34 PM EST
i'm pretty sure those are Red Crescent ambulances in the back. i would guess turkey or the west bank
Link Posted: 8/18/2004 7:10:19 PM EST
It was Turkey.

one of the guys had avest that said "POLIS"
turkish.
oddly enough, some of the voices in the end appear to be speaking english.hinking.gif
Link Posted: 8/18/2004 7:11:08 PM EST
Uh which guy got it? the guy digging in it or the one looking right over it?

That is Definitely gonna leave a mark

hummmm people messing with a bag in the middle of the street, what to do?
GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE!!!!
Link Posted: 8/19/2004 7:14:37 AM EST
Is it a requirement to be a complete idiot when you live in a 3rd world country?

Ooh look, suspicious bag with cops all over the place, ill go stick my face 2 feet away, maybe there's a kitten or a puppy inside of it!

I laughed. Honestly, stupidity thins the pack yet again. Looks like whoever was left after the blast laying on the ground was having a very bad day. I doubt that ones still alive.

No offense, but anyone who laughed at that video has serious issues.

I think the dude survived - this seems to be the news report:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3116183.stm

The man who is screaming is the cop that took the blast in the face.

Wow, people on this site have serious issues? no way
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 10:16:21 AM EST
If nothing else, the lesson learned here is that blast pressure get much, much lower with distance from the explosion. The only guy to lose serious body parts was the guy in the bag, everyone else standing around stayed (relatively) intact.
