There’s been a lot of talk recently about how members of the U.S. armed forces stationed abroad are being kept from blogging, posting videos, and generally making public statements.

But not everybody has such restrictions (and indeed members of the U.S. military have ways of getting around their own restrictions) and it truly is amazing to see how the Internet has been able to bring far-off war zones right into your living room or office. Much more so than television, because with a webcam and an Internet connection, anyone can be a front line reporter.

Witness this hot-off-the-presses video, made with footage captured by a webcam mounted on one British Royal Marine’s helmet! (Or, as he calls it, the “helmet cam”). This video takes you with this Royal Marine as he patrols in Afghanistan, become involved in a skirmish, and gets shot (fortunately, in the backside, and he’s relatively fine). There is no real gore in this video, but there is gunfire, and a lot of swearing, so this is not safe to play around children or at work.
