It looked like the camera switched to night vision, and showed the two walking away again.... but from what I saw it doesn’t seem like either would be walking, let alone breathing much. Can anyone explain for me?

Hoisted on their own petar, quite literally. But I see two figures walking away from the blast. Awww...

I do this for a living.....He's carrying a weapon draped with cloth for concealment and he sets off an IED where he crosses the board bridge. The blast occurs from under him. And yes, you can see with infrared during the day. Handy amongst vegetation.

That is a low yield explosion or just poorly mixed by less capable makers of HME (Home Made Explosives).

They could very well have walked away from it a little ways until the adrenaline wears off. Concussion, internal hemorrhaging...etc.

He's probably toast....Jim!

A few more things.....a couple of things indicates these individuals are not local Taliban but fresh from Pakistan.

The draping of the weapon and hauling it about during the day.....not something the locals do based upon experience.

They may have had training in Pakistan, however, they're new to fighting in general which is shown by their cavalier manner. They know the EO/IR asset is flying, they don't have personal knowledge of it's capabilities like the locals know. Even if they were told, they probably didn't take it seriously, hence the nonchalant manner with no looking around.

Probably due to attrition of experience amongst the local Taliban, the new insurgents were not aware of where all the IED’s were placed.

"It looked like the camera switched to night vision, and showed the two walking away again.... "

Maybe... but I'm thinking there was a 30 mm chain gun behind the camera, so they probably didn't walk far.

“Stupid is, as stupid does...”

My nephew is in the suck (Afganistan) right now...Sent this to him so he can get a good laugh...

He needs this...

What’s interesting is the activity in the region will now be on the increase because the “Opium (Poppy)” harvesting is pretty much wrapping up and the money those farmers get they use, or will be used to buy more “munitions” for their fight against us...

I don’t know what the President has been smoking, but this conflict is FARRRRR from over...

But hey, if the concensus is to cut-bait and let the others fish...Then lets do a mass exodus and let them kill each other...

I think a plan of containment, sanctions, of nothing in or out (to the best of our abilities and technologies) would be better...

When we’ve helped them to clean their own house up to a point, and the folks we are mingling with (their security and armed forces ) have infiltrators waiting for their chance to shoot our folks in the back...That tells me its over...We did what we could and they are not living up to the bargain...

Screw ‘em all...

Thanks for the analysis. It’s pretty clear he’s not carrying an IED—he just tripped over one of their own. If only more of them would do that for us...

1) The explosion came from beneath him (under the ground).

2) It’s not a targeting camera, it’s just used for FOB security and outward surveillance. No weaponry attached.

Those opium poppys and their farmers...We need to get in there with A-10s and/or B-1s...maybe bring some F-111’s out of mothballs and lay some napalm onto those crops! Screw those farmers. If we can go after moonshiners here in the states then why not burn those bastards out of business in the Middle East and Mexico?
