the car heading the direction isn`t the one that blows up, the car on the other side of the road blows up next to them?

& @cobra240`s explaination too.
@obhwfgirl, it is you who are delusional, the minute Obama was elected the daily body count stopped, the endless videos of violence stopped, the MSM is the Democrat`s lap-dog, it only barks about Republicans...

Thanks @splurbyburbl, for those who can`t figure out the most obvious explaination. That`s also why they`re so calm about it, they`re trained to remain calm. They`re going to check if the folks in the pickup are OK, not the blowed-up car (duh! lolz!)

"Think it was a humvee, so wide that they can`t fit in a single lane."

Humvee`s can certainly fit in a single lane. A military Humvee (or Hummer H1) is 101" wide, from the tips of each side mirror.

A typical, two lane road has 12` wide lanes. Larger roads, such as interstates can have larger. That means that on a common road, a Humvee has an extra 43 inches or space, or nearly 2 feet on each side.

Knowing this, one could hardly say that a Humvee can`t fit in a lane. Unless of course the drivers are simply idiots and these drivers appear to be.

Oh, you`re serious?

When the hell did the media ever portray these wars with peaceful symbolism and eucalyptus trees? I think you`ve been huffing paint.

It isn`t called the "fertile crescent" for psychological reasons, they have beautiful Eucalyptus trees, dates from palm trees and all kinds of flora.

The reason you don`t see this on the news anymore is because Obama is in charge, not Bush. At this point the media is focused more on the "peaceful downturn of violence and drawback of American forces" and less on "Hey every time there`s an explosion let`s throw it on the front page with a casualty count!"

DesertWolf, shouldn`t you be calling it "Iraq", since that`s the actual name of the country? :P
"Iraqi" is used to describe something from or related to Iraq.

My husband came back from deployment in October and hadn`t encountered a single tree in 8 months. That`s not to say their are none, just that they`re rare.

A lot of people are asking why they are driving in the middle of the road and why the traffic on the other side is off the road. Ok, the other traffic is off the road because they know the military vehicle will A: not swerve first, and B: will shoot if you get too close. Next they are in the middle because the middle gives the driver a wider gap to drive through if something happens, stops cars from pulling up next to them, and gives them a wider birth away from the sides of the road. As for the explosion the oncoming car that blew himself up looks to have missed his target by a few feet. I would say if it was an uparmoured vehicle the occupants are just fine...may need some new underwear so you can start packing a care package for them. Oh and you didn`t hear about this on the news because over there this is just another day. Happens all the time.

Military vehicles often film their activities when on patrol just like police cruisers here in the states and for the same reasons mostly. Primarily being able to review what happened during a particular incident (I.E being able to identify a vehicle or persons involved in a shoot-out etc) and to identify the area of an attack. The U.S military records the location of any IED for future reference.

I know most people don`t picture trees in Iraqi, but you would be surprised at the green areas around the two major rivers and the "breadbasket" of Iraqi. I know I was surprised when we drove through a canyon and down into what looked like "The Land Time Forgot".

Oh yes, and if it were not for religious extremists and people who insist on living in the stone age, Iraq would be a very beautiful little place.

Why were they driving in between two lanes?

Reply
Male 3,915
that is not a purely gasoline explosion...

that`s damage-driven explosives...if you notice the car in the opposing lane swerves (it appears) into the car 2 cars up when the explosion happens...

btw...what kind of dick face takes up both lanes of a two-lane road unless he saw this coming?

That`d be an I.E.D. and as was explained earlier, troops drive in the middle of the road to limit exposure to roadside bombs.

IED. They are in a HUMMER. So I`m guessing they are in NY or Sweden somewhere.

Iraq, middle of the road driving, the other cars know to stay away from point man, etc.

Iraq during the wet season.

I still may be wrong, however, we have been in Iraq for over ten years now... you shouldn`t have had to be there to know a few things when you see a video like this.

This is from Iraq. Not much more explanation necessary.

What`s disturbing about this is how calm the people in the vehicle are, implying this is a normal occurrence for them.

the explosion is from the car or truck coming in the opposite direction i think, it looks like that car or truck is stopped and once the car going in the same direction as the camera passes it, it exploded

All American Police Cars have to record at all times. It`s the law. You can tell it`s a cop because of the walkie talkie antenna right next to it.

Could be a suicide bomb or just pure coincidence that a gas main blew or something random.
And yes, I agree with Gerry1of1, that was very coincidental.. suspicions arise.

My moneys on them being US military. Military usually drive in the middle of the road and make oncoming vehicles go around them, it`s to minimise the chance od IED`s at the roadside.

why was the guy recording driving in the middle of the road for no reason? Just to make oncoming traffic move around him? Or to make sure he had a good view when the car blew up.

Actually, the explosion looks like it happens in front of the oncoming vehicle. Probably a gas main.

If this is Iraq then could this be security contractors? Could also explain having a dash cam and why they reacted so fast.

From the looks of it, the street, not the vehicle, exploded. If you watch, the ground swells up right as the explosion is going off. If the vehicle were exploding, the ground wouldn`t do that.

Looks like Iraq, and the car bomb was detonated, so that would explain its exploding.
