VIDEO: Firefight While Waiting for MEDEVAC

07 December 2012

This video apparently was made by a helmet cam.   It shows normal combat in Afghanistan.  Similar scenes have unfolded thousands of times during the war.  This underlines why so many people are serious about removing the red crosses from Dustoff MEDEVAC helicopters, and adding machine guns.  At minimum, the red crosses which alert the enemy that helicopters are unarmed, should be removed.

Note: My website has been coming under frequent attack.  This has been occurring since running afoul of certain milbloggers.  We have no evidence that the milbloggers are involved.  The coincidences are large.  They have demonstrably and irrefutably attacked in other ways.  We are aware of the matter and working the issue.

Please watch the videos:
