Colonel Bob Seddon has years of Counter-IED and EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) experience in the British Army - gleaned from service in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the first to tell those who would listen that Counter-IED training also takes years to acquire - and even longer to bring to bear in field operations. This is especially true as Taliban tactics become more complex and attacks more frequent. This, in the end, is a prime concern when it comes to tallying the human cost - and psychological cost - of Counter-IED operations in Afghanistan.
