500 Pound Bomb Dropped on U.S. Soldiers By Mistake

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BSzBCgbicbA

Paktika Province, Afghanistan - After spotting Taliban forces on a distant ridge line, U.S. Army mortar teams engage with 60mm mortars. A simultaneous airstrike is called in which accidentally drops a 500 pound bomb on a U.S. Army infantry outpost, mistaking the position for Taliban fighters. Luckily there were no friendly casualties in this rare incident, due to the First Sergeant's decision to bring everyone to "stand to" before the drop. It is still unclear what caused the pilot to target the wrong position. "If it wasn't for the decision of our First Sergeant, three of our guys would have died in that wooden building which was shredded by shrapnel."

it is jarring to see this kind of footage due to people really fighting with weapons. We usually see it in the video games and the movies but it is amazing to see weapons work in real life. It will be interesting to see how firefights break out and how it actually starts. Most movies I have seen are talking strategies but I see that there are some interesting events going on in the firefights that have been posted on here. It would be nice to get into the perspectives of the soldiers with their communication though.
