Horrifying video has emerged showing the crash of a U.S. cargo plane in Afghanistan on Monday.

Scroll down for video - some readers may find this content disturbing.

The video, which appears to have been shot by a vehicle's dashboard camera, shows the National Airlines Boeing 747 taking off from the Bagram Airfield military base. According to NYC Aviation.com the aircraft’s nose pitches up heavily, the plane appears to stall and then it falls to the ground.

The crash killed all seven people on board. All were Americans.

The Netherlands gets a new King on Queen's Day

I miss Queen's Day in Holland. Always had a good time when I went there. Congrats to the new King.



AMSTERDAM — Willem-Alexander became the first Dutch king in more than a century Tuesday and pledged to use his ceremonial position as head of state to help steer his country through uncertain economic times.

The generational change in the House of Orange-Nassau gave the Netherlands a moment of celebration, pageantry and brief respite as this trading nation of nearly 17 million struggles through a lengthy recession brought on by the European credit crisis.

Visibly emotional, the much-loved Beatrix ended her 33-year reign as queen in a nationally televised signing ceremony as thousands of orange-clad people cheered outside. Millions more were expected to watch on television.

Just over four hours later, King Willem-Alexander, wearing a fur-trimmed ceremonial mantle, swore an oath of allegiance to his country and the constitution in the historic New Church.

No rushing to judgement regarding intervention in Syria, said the Prez…

Doesn't sound like the kind of language from someone who's itching to send troops there.

The chicken-hawks and conspiracy nuts must be fuming right now.

This Battle…
