While the world focuses on Water Polo finals and (from what I saw) the blatant anti-American conspiracy that robbed WORLD CHAMP and awkward interview of the year nominee Jordyn Wieber of her shot at Olympic gold, there still is some very real shit going on elsewhere. Terrorists don’t necessarily abide by the Olympic Truce. If you’re looking for explosions or an injury you’re not gonna find one in this clip, but there’s a heart-arresting Hurt Locker-esque feeling to this video. These guys could’ve been made past tense in a hurry. Afghanistan is a terrible place.
It’s real out here in these dirt streets.
