Donkey-Borne IEDs–Only in Afghanistan

John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Donkeys are extremely valuable in the remote areas of Afghanistan and are even common on the streets of Kabul.  Being so common, it only makes sense that terrorists would think they can launch attacks with these animals against unsuspecting targets.

For some ANSF projects, donkeys and horses are the primary source of transport for construction materials

Here is a war story you won’t likely find on Oliver North’s show:  The Tale of the Donkey-Borne IED.  Like any war story, documentation is often sketchy and the teller’s enthusiasm often over-the-top.  However, knowing what Afghans do to man’s highly-trained best friend, it isn’t to surprising that this beast of burden would be asked to give the ultimate sacrifice.

DBIED owners don't stand this close to "live" animals

Proverbs 12:10,A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
