No details of where this occurred but it took place last month, apparently. Looks like a tanker loaded with explosives. The detonation sends out huge shock wave and mushroom cloud.

Don't watch it full screen or your hair will get singed!

Thought I heard "Allahu Akbar" just before the blast but I think it's a cock crowing.

Scary stuff!

Oh my giddy aunt that is pretty mahoosive!
Looks to me like some kind of storage place or maybe some industrial estate kinda place that gets it but until someone can verify it who knows...

Scary stuff indeed!

Could be a false flag...you know, so they blame and attack the Taliban....(irony switched off)

I dont think it was caused by someone in a kebab shop leaving a gas bottle open....

It was like a small nuke, jesus...it was like they hit an arsenal.

looks like it was near some base...you can see before the vehicle takes a left you see the front side of a humvee to the left of what could be shed or checkpoint....this could be a month ago or four years ago...that was crazy..

That was a tanker truck looked like. Had a ton of "bags" on top of it. You can see it as it turns the corner. My guess it was Afghanistan. They know their fertilizers.

Another view...

I imagine fertilizer is what the the tanker driver turned into.

I can't imagine very many people survived that or even had a chance, that's one of the biggest I've seen.

Interesting channel indeed. I found myself captured in what was happening. The suicide bomber had a smile on his face the entire time. Never looked back. Last thing he did was point his finger up to the air, I think to say, "see you above".

Remember, The Taliban are not our enemy, per Joe Biden


The Taliban are not an enemy of the U.S. and should not be talked about in such terms, Joe Biden has claimed.

The vice-president said the militant Islamist group only represents an inherent threat if it allows Al-Qaeda to strike at the U.S.

In an interview with Newsweek, Mr Biden warned against labelling the Taliban as an enemy.





Ohhh Joe, you so crazy!

What's with the god damn music?! Do they think they're going to inspire more jihadist to come to their party? I really can't stand their cry to allah before or after some event. GOD DOESN'T CARE. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET 72 VIRGINS IN HEAVEN, MORON - But please, carry on snuffing yourselves out... Please.

The music is really irritating and horrifying, it sounds even worse than horror movie soundtracks.

I wonder if the bomber died?

This is the sad reality of war. The best the Taliban and numerous other mujahedin could do is become suicide bombers and cause major damage.
