China moves troops to North Korean Boarder
(April 12th 2013) Video footage has been found of China sending tanks and troops to the North Korean Border. Although China would NOT likely back North Korea in a conflict, they may have to deal with a refugee problem if a war does break out. It is also possible that China may want to take control of North Korea should the current regime collapse.

This is a *VERY GRAPHIC* 3 part clip showing a landmine blast that seriously wounds an ANA Soldier in Afgahanistan and how the U.S. Troops & Medivac team responds. I wouldn't usually make such a post of Allies getting injured but I believe these clips show the Bravery & Professionalism of the U.S Troops & also how their training instantly kicks in & they deal with the situation. Myself being just a humble Civvy (atm)... I'm in awe & have the utmost respect of how the U.S Troops just get on & deal with such a situation. Hope the poor guy survived...
