My War 1 Danish Afghanistan


Not suitable for children if I die soon, there's not anything left unsaid, -- I have reconciled me dying. And I have accepted it.It brings it much closer.The recordings in this program are from Danish soldiers own cameras.-They have surrounded us! -Fuck, it's close!The recordings have never before been released publicly.Ah fuck. We just have to lie down.Danish soldiers have been at war in Afghanistan for 12 years.Support, support!-This is fucking sick. -Incoming fire!It is the bloodiest conflict for Danish soldiers in 100 years.Hold out.Where is our support?This is the soldiers own accounts about being in war.Lay still.Up close and without filter.They're shooting again! Down, Lasse. Down!MY WARThis episode:In may 2009 was a group of Danish soldiers caught in an ambush.Fuck! It's coming from down the road.Taliban has surrounded them, and the Danes can't get out.We lost this. It was a Taliban victory.Handgrenade!I'll do everything for those men.SURROUNDED BY TALIBANKastrup Airport January 2009In January 2009 was the 7th contingent of Danish soldiers sent to Helmand in Afghanistan.Among the 750 soldiers saying goodbye to their families is Jesper Larsen, -- Rasmus Bedsted and Lasse Hansen.They became friends during conscription 2 years ago -- and have now decided to go to Afghanistan as soldiers.I have a kind of adventure lust and trying things.Why should you live in your little town forever?I was hungry, for getting started.I think you do it because of the thrill. The unknown.And you're probably young and foolhardy sometimes as well.We've been together for so long, if they are going I'm of course going as well.I don't want to forsake anyone, but it isn't mentioned anywhere.As you are saying goodbye to your loved, the thoughts come again.What is about to happen? What are we going to?-Hey, Lasse! -Hey. What's up?-It's not noisy! -It's not noisy at all!Do I have what it takes? You don't.

Nobody can experience what I have experienced and not take damage.-Minesweeper, Minesweeper. -Minesweeper!Many others have experienced just the same as me.My story is just one of many.The recordings in this program are from Danish soldiers own cameras.Who's been struck?Pede's been struck.The recordings have never before been released publicly.Fuck man. We just have to lie down.Danish soldiers have been at war in Afghanistan for 12 years.Support, support!-This is fucking sick. -Incoming fire!It is the bloodiest conflict for Danish soldiers in 100 years.Hold out.Where is our support?This is the soldiers own accounts about being in war.Lay still.Up close and without filter.They're shooting again! Down, Lasse. Down!MY WARThis episode:In 2009 a group of Danish soldiers moved into an area -- filled with Taliban roadside bombs.Peters is sitting down in the hole.Are you ready to lift? This man is missing his legs.POISONOUS GROUNDDear children and grandchildren, I hope you're good and everything is well.I would like to tell why your father/grandfather went to war for Denmark.My opinion was, it can't always be your neighbour who must do it.We can't all stand on the sideline and watch.I took to war to better the world. To fight the fight far away -- and not in the country I love with the people dear to me.In August 2009 is Morten Nielsen, nicknamed Munkebo, -- sent with the 8th contingent of Danish soldiers to Afghanistan.I was 23 years old when I left with the 8th contingent on my second mission.My job was being a soldier. Where they sent me wasn't important.My job is where the task is.And it is you, who voted on the politicians -- who have decided where we are going.It's you who thrust us into war, we're just the spear.Most of the soldiers in Munkebos unit have already been in Afghanistan.Like 23 year old Rasmus Stilbo.It was like a hate-love relationship.Afghanistan is like your ex-girlfriend.
