As much as I trust metafilter.com, I looked for some other stuff on it. Can't find it on snopes or any other hoax sites. But I found another thread on metafilter and something on another site referring to the mine strike.

Captures from a video of an attack on a Taliban BMP. All I have to say is "holy crap." Graphic. Interesting. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Completely untrue.

I deleted a post leading to the same images almost a year ago (for being too graphic and not having anything worth discussing). It's some video footage from some random tank/mine explosion perhaps in afghanistan, but certainly not during this war time.

Taliban/Al Qaida Ex-Russian BMP Gets Blasted
by John Hawkins

This is a short movie of a Taliban/Al Qaida ex-Russian BMP that goes boom. This was hit by Navy F-14s with GBU-16 laser guided bombs. I haven't seen this footage anywhere else.

Check out the brutal payback from Uncle Sam right here.

(**Editor's Note: It looks like this is not a recent series of pictures. I've now been told this is a Russian vehicle being hit by Muslim mines. While I haven't been able to confirm this, I've been told the same things from two different sources, one of which is highly reliable**)

I seen this years ago, the info I had at the time said it was a Russian/Soviet APC being blown up in A'stan/Chechnya. :2c:

Also if you listen to the vid, the camera man says "Allah Akbar", not CCT procedure last time I checked, but what do I know! lol

Mods/Admins please edit post accordingly to reflect the true nature of the story behind the picture.

lol, it could be new CCT procedure for use during infiltration ops, never know who's watching.

Hence my earlier post to edit accordingly and feel free to move/delete, etc. lol
