Damn. This breaks my heart seeing this.

I also wonder why the US media doesnt show much of this kind of footage. And they usually find their way in youtube or liveleak.

NOW UPDATING!!!

First off, where the hell is that? I'm pretty sure they don't have jungles in Iraq, and I wasn't aware of any other wars going on.

Also, I imagine they don't show that kind of footage because they don't let the media in the middle of the place where they're ACTUALLY fighting.

A quick search reveals it to be from the Philippines. Not only that, but it appears that the clip is probably about 4 years old now, and I'm guessing it's from his coverage of the stuff involving the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

In winter of 1944, with overtaxed supply lines in the Ardennes, a German medic had completely run out of plasma, bandages and antiseptic. During one particularly bad round of mortar fire, his encampment suddenly became a bloodbath. The survivors claimed to hear, above the screams and barked commands of their Lieutenant, someone cackling with almost girlish glee.

The medic made his rounds during the fire, in almost complete darkness as he had so many times before, but never this short on supplies.

The bombardment moved to other ends of the line, most men dropped off to sleep in the still dark hours of the morning - New Year's Day, 1945.

The men awoke at first light with screams. They discovered that their bandages were not typical bandages at all, but hunks and strips of human flesh. Several men had been given fresh blood transfusions, with no blood supplies available. Each treated man was almost completely covered, head-to-toe, with the maroon stain of blood.

The medic was found, sitting on an ammunition tin, staring off into space. When one man approached him, tapped him on the shoulder, his tunic fell off to reveal all skin, muscle, and sinew had been stripped from his torso and his body almost completely dried of blood. In one hand was a scalpel, and in the other, a blood transfusion vial
