you can see the insurgents with their weapons in the beginning of the video. the beginning was cut out in the `pop-up` version. they were soldiers. it`s obvious. come on.

Sirrogue2: I am NOT an idiot. All I meant was that I was bothered by the video. Excuse me for having feelings. Regardless of who these people are or what they were doing, 3 people got blown to bits. Even if they deserved it, its unsettling to watch that sort of thing.

*sigh* OK, I have to say it.

You people are idiots.

In a war in which you can`t tell who is an enenmy combatant and who is actually glad to see you there, everyone is suspect. The kid you may be shaking hands with today may ride in a donkey cart loaded with explosives tomorrow. And his destination may be the building where your son, father, husband, daughter, girlfriend, or whomever close to you works or lives.

Notice that in the video they don`t tell you WHY the Apache is hovering around... or who the people in question actually were. The sensationalistic use of VH-1 style pop-up commentary is extremely distasteful, even to this ex-soldier. It is this kind of incomplete, tabloid-quality reporting that makes the average American soldier look like the so-called "baby-killers" of the Vietnam era.

DISCLAIMER: If you`ve never been in combat before, I understand. Otherwise, here`s a glass of stfu. kthybye. And PM`s are ---> that way.

Rested, you suck.
First, you submit links to sabotages,
and now you say that 3 innocent civilians, probably related getting assassinated in front of each other is "funny".

No, the point was to point out what`s happening in a slightly surreal way.

Regardless if they were trafficing, the US is supposed to obey the Geneva convention, how the hell can they expect anyone to treat our soldiers with respect and basic huuman rights if we aren`t prepared to respect their rights?

Even at the begining of the war coallition soldiers were treated with basic rights by the Iraqi`s yet we`ve systematically abused the prisoners we`ve taken.

"Absolutely no threat was coming from either of the 3 individuals who were killed. It was the killing of 3 civilians; a war crime."
=================
Agreed to an extent, but just because there was no imediate threat doesn`t mean they are civilians. It is possible the were trafficking and stuf...but oh well, it was still disgusting to watch.

That video has been around forever.

Those are soldiers.

Just because someone is hiding under a tractor doesn`t mean he is a farmer.

And they wonder why the drat no one respects our soldiers? We get so upset having our civilians beheaded. Hope the crew have the miss fortune to get stuck with only some unfriendly maltia for help.
