‘improvised bombs were around before the grandmother of any living person was born.  Interestingly, the troops I have been with in Iraq and Afghanistan nearly universally want this information disseminated, while many people far away from the jagged edge are afraid to discuss bombs.’

Really interesting article about using explosives to flush out IEDs in Afghanistan. Lots of good pictures, also profiles his tentmates, they sound like really nice guys.
