Mir Mohammed, an Afghan policeman rests in his wheelchair suffering from an infected amputated leg at the ANA Military hospital October 21, 2009 Kabul, Afghanistan. Mir was injured 3 months ago in Zabul when the police truck he was riding in hit an IED. The military hospital gives medical care to all the Afghan military and police as well as civilians. The Afghan National Army are extremely vulnerable to Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) attacks on the front line, many have been attacked while traveling along the roads in Helmand and surrounding towns in the south. 2009 was the deadliest year in terms of civilian casualties in Afghanistan ever since the start of the U.S.-led war against Taliban in the country. The Taliban are now staging suicide attacks and IED blasts in densely populated areas to create a bigger impact as more of Afghan's war wounded hit the headlines. Relations between Afghans and the American and NATO forces have become more fragile with every passing day.
