There are some videos and images that will stick with you for the rest of your life. This is your fair warning before we get into it. If you have never seen anything like this before, this video will stick with you for the rest of your life.
A tank crew is ambushed by members of an extremist faction in the FSA. They have zero ground support in the immediate area to pull them out of the fire, and they decide to make a break for it.
The first tank crewman runs for his life, no shoes, and appears as if he escapes. His brother however, is not so lucky. The initial explosion tore apart his leg and completely disabled him.
He struggles for a while to get out of the tank while rounds ping off of the armor around him. Then, he falls to the ground and lands in a puddle of burning gasoline and tries to get away as the same shooters target him while he tries to roll to safety.
Finally after a few agonizing moments of pain, a round finds its mark and extinguishes his life. This is the reality of war, and I’m putting it directly in the middle of your Facebook safe space.
