The video shows the tonsils being removed from a child, apparently in Belarus. No anesthesia is used. The child is restrained and under considerable emotional stress. The medical staff are not speaking harshly or being intentionally cruel. The procedure itself takes about one minute. It is bloody.Addendum: Ninabi notes "...from airing this sad, scary video in Ireland, funds were raised for an anesthetic machine for this hospital."
This will be disturbing to some viewers. On the other hand, this is real life. This is how things are done in some parts of the world. This is how this (and similar or worse) procedures were done in antiquity.
Remember the old adage: "what has been seen cannot be unseen" - then make your decision.
