    Note that the first three Humvees only have one headlight. Could this be for extra ventilation?

    Objects in your rear view mirror can appear to be closer than they actually are.....

    SVBIED

    Interesting video demonstrating why it is so hard to see and stop SVBIED when first entering an urban environment. They can come out of no where. Also demonstrates that SVBIEDs are actually not as damaging to military equipment as they appear to be in ISIS videos. Humvee was very close to the explosion, but seems to sustain no damage. The tank was likely suffered no damage based on how the humvee fared.

    iraqi forces have liberated hawija city (pop 100,000). IN addition over 90% of the district and hundreds of villages have been liberated in the 12 day campaign.

    most ISIS and sympathisers who didn't die fled... surprise surprise to the Kurdish/Peshmarga to surrender.

    Impressive

    I guess that's where their handlers are

    Pretty significant and a positive move for the future of Iraq if true. The US might find itself with no role there either!
