In early 2004 (before armor kits)we got hit weekly by IEDs. The locals made some pretty low quality ones that weren't much better than two small mortars ***ed together. The shrapnel hits did't compare to today's stuff.So yeah cumsh**tyz I know wtf one is.

I'm told the red cross is now often accompanied by a red crescent - some people see the red cross as a religious symbol.

Mostly the Iraqi ambulances had the red crescent, some had both cross and crescent. Shared-use bases had both. Funny thing about the Iraqis, they would literally (often) only take patients who had cash on them.
