Did you hear about this in our free American press?

On October 10, 2006, a billion dollars of ammunition exploded at Base Falcon in Iraq. The ammo went off when insurgents hit it with mortars.

Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/share?v=Ps0v1bIFup4&embed=1

The video is from Iraqi TV. They are filming the ammo dump as it explodes and burns on the horizon.

Keep watching. At 3:56 seconds, hold on to your chair. That is one big shock and awe moment. Something really big went up.

The US military insists nobody was injured in the explosion. A number of websites claim that 300 US personnel died.

The Sunday Herald (Scotland) reported the attack caused widespread fear among US military that the Green Zone was under attacke: http://www.sundayherald.com/print58553

Here is another ammo dump that exploded in January 2006. It was filmed by US soldiers on their personal video cameras. The soldiers talk about the explosions, laugh, and curse when they get knocked down by concussions. (Warning: contains "language").
