    Looks interesting if you are into Military documenteries.

    In a remote outpost in south-central Afghanistan, a group of Americans stand in the breach between the rule of law and the rule of terror. They are Green Berets, part of an elite division of the U.S. Army Special Forces, charged with protecting local civilians from the wrath of the Taliban. For this film, the Pentagon waived their 48-hour limitation on embedded media and allowed NGC cameras to chronicle the lives of these war-hardened Americans for 10 days.

    Ah they broadcasted it in HD? I don't think I have NGC HD. Only Discovery HD. I just watched it. It was interesting. Wish it was longer.

    I think that after I'd found ... say ... 4 or 5 of those suckers, I'd be thinking that maybe that might not be such a cool place to sack out for the night after all. At the very minimum, anyone within a few miles of that site would have known that they were there and they were blowing the IEDs. And since they were worried about an ambush anyway, it just made no sense to me why they would have been so dead set on stopping right there.

    I'm sure they had some reason for needing to use that spot that wasn't stated. I think they got hosed when those ANA in the pickup decided to turn their f-ing headlights on.

    :werd: I was thinking the same thing. Especially if the IED was command detonated. :mad:
