This is absolutely disgusting. That`s all I can say.

For those who think the soldiers were carrying a "big red ball", wouldn`t the children have kept running when the soldiers threw down the water? That makes no sense and is absurd: where are some American soldiers gonna get a shiny red ball in the middle of Iraq?

Regardless of what ANY SINGLE person thinks of the war itself, that video was pretty sad. Poor little kid. Watching him run after that truck for a single bottle of water & being humilated unbenounce to him was digusting. We have everything we ever need or can possibly imagine here & to that little child, a bottle of water was that of getting $100.00. Those soldiers are, while I support them fully & even have relatives in the Marines and Navy- those soldiers were an absolute DISGRACE. That was just pretty sad to watch fully. Enough Said.

I`m actually in the Army...I just got back from Iraq, and you see that all the time, albight we dident make them run that far...10 feet or so...anyways...

I`ve done HA missions, and the kids over there will literally knock you down and steal your sh*t! I`ve had to hit a few becasue they got too close and they dont listen.

And dont say they dont know english, becasue they do, very well. Their taught it so they can get things from us like fuel, water, and food.

Iraqi culture is a fend-for-yourself with very litte respect twards your neighbor and his hardships.

This clip, well, from a soldiers point of view is kinda funny. Its a bit twisted because he ran the little dude that far.

Iraiqs have pleny of food and water...he wanted it because it was from an American soldier, not because he dident have any water.

"I cant believe this. What a bunch of sick cretins. Why does it NOT surprise me its Americans doing this? No wonder the rest of the world hate you."

Oh, I`m so sorry. Why have none of us Americans on here pushed the "stop the war" button we all have?
And you`re such a retard that you had to create a profile just to say that.
Wake up and learn that our country is the size of your continent, there are millions of people and most of them don`t support the war. Way to be a dumbass and judge an entire country on one person.

Whether or not you believe being in Iraq/the war in Iraq is right or wrong, whether or not you think that people from Iraq are a barbaric race, you have to feel bad for a poor child just looking for some clean water. If something like that happened to me, I would grow to dislike Americans too.

It really is such a shame to see people "fighting for democracy" in such a way.

I cant say that the actions of all militia in Iraq behave in such a way, but I really hope someone in the military is reprimanded for this. It is pathetic.

No wonder a lot of the world hates America if this is the type of things they see and experience.

It was a very cruel thing to do, but then again iraq kids throwing petrol bombs at soldiers on a daily basis that are only there to protect them is rather cruel too. But then i dont blame them to be angry seeing as we thought we have the right to invade their own country and then leave it messed up

None of the comments here are right or justified, unless anyone here has actually been to iraq in the past 5 years?? No, didnt think so, more interested in sticking up for their own country in stupid `my-country-is-better-than-yours` childish slanging matches. So no point arguing about things we havent any clue about except what the media tells us or what some jumped up soldier films

Suprised at IAB too, for posting this clip up as entertainment

Seriously folks...behavior like these soldiers exhibit has nothing to do with their country. It has to do with cruel human nature.

"I see alot of assumptions were made and alot of names called, but perhaps you should try to find out the whole story next time before you automatically assume the worst."

If this is true then the question I have to ask is why on Earth were you filming young boys in Iraq chasing your truck while clearly holding bottled water, laughing and saying "Are you getting this?" as you tell them to keep running faster?? Where you really TRYING to make all Americans look like sick, sadistic fcks? Because if not, you certainly did a bang up job anyway.

The kids that did get the bottle were a group of older kids who were let out of class much earlier. None of the kids are hurting for water, we have them taken care of, however they love stuff to keep them excited, and we have been trying to set up a proper soccer pitch for the kids, but there isnt enough grass anywhere so we end up playing with them on the dirt and sand. Other then school, soccer and our visits there isnt much for them to do.

I see alot of assumptions were made and alot of names called, but perhaps you should try to find out the whole story next time before you automatically assume the worst.

My guys have gotten close to these kids and we werent being mean to them. If you listen to the video you can hear them call out to Jazz and Saw, listen closely, you can hear the nicknames. I wanted to throw it to Jazz since he clearly was keeping up and deserved it, but Saw kept cutting him off. I actually encourage Jazz to run just a bit faster because I am afraid if I throw it, Saw will snap it and they will probably fight over it. Saw and Jazz dont get along, Jazz gets alot of stuff from us and some of the kids look up to him, and others resent him for it. You can hear the other kids chanting his name when he starts to chase us. At one point Double ( the boy in the brown shirt whose name we say at the begining ) actually stops and points to Jazz and waves on Jazz cause he knows Jazz has won. I should of tossed it out sooner but dont worry Jazz got 4 bottles of water the next day. Saw also got two bottles of water.

Jazz has gotten alot from us, including a set of playing cards, a whole six pack of soda, and a ton of candy. You can see that he actually ran farther then Saw, who basically cheated, he was halfway down the street when he started, and Jazz was quick to point that out when we came back the next day to their school.

I should also clear up a few misconceptions, these kids have running water, and electricity, and are good kids ( well most of them ). I cant for security reasons tell you where this happened, but its one of the nicer areas. There are plenty of places in worse shape from the constant fighting, but this place is mostly safe, if it wasnt, we wouldnt let the kids run down the street for fear of IEDs up and down the roads.

Hello, I was directed here by a friend of my sister back home. I thought I would share some information for you. That video is mine. The boys in the video are well known to us, as we play soccer with them. The boy with short hair in the red and white jacket is Jazz, his real is name is Mohamud Jassi, the boy in the brown top we call him Saw, his name is Salwa. We were taking our PC to the local distribution center to get more items to give out, we just dropped off supplies at the school ( you can see it in the background at the start of the video ).

We were coming right back but the boys caught sight of my last bottle and started to scream for me to throw it. This isnt the first time they have chased, most times we dont have anything and they stop after awhile, other times we give them candy the next time we see them to play soccer with them,so many times they chase us and whoever runs the farthest has learned they will get something the next time we see them as sort of a reward.

Has anyone stopped to think that about the fact that we are sitting in our safe houses (or apartments or what have you) in front of a computer that we at least have easy access to (but more likely own) arguing about something like this (which really isn`t getting any of us anywhere) while this kid was chasing a truck for a bottle of water (regardless of his intentions).
Further, why don`t we stop thinking in terms of the values our "country" instills in us and instead look at the values we learn through other (much more prominent) means such as family, friends, and environment. I would argue that the fact that the guy was American (or possibly Canadian...or really whatever) means very little. I would actually say that this has very little to do with "American values" and a lot more to do with personal values and morals.

So stop making generalizations about ANYTHING. It doesn`t hold up. Consider the individual and no more. Those soldiers were sick individuals,

No. Fratting. Way.

"well it was HIS water, just because he waved it in front of poor starving kids that were willing to chase a truck for at least a mile over a small bottle of water doesn`t make it him an `ahole.` the kids just probably thought it was a game anyways, ignore the fact they probably havent had a drink in days and as soon as the water kid the ground a dozen people ran for it like it was last week`s winning lottery ticket.. it`s just a funny joke AHHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!"

If people in the world actually think with this mentality, my disgust in the human race has just tripled.

That is just sad... I know its only a few soldiers but it is still sad to see that this still occurs today. Bush just used the WMD excuse to invade iraq and get their hands on the oil, when they invaded they destroyed all forms of order in the country, no police, army or any form of governmental organization, sure now they have an democracy there but this isnt like WW2 where war solved the problem, this is a completly different culture and this is the problem. And now the US cant pull out because if they do there will be civil war and the blame falls opon them...

"I hate Americans."

Again with the blind ignorance. Though these people are Americans, they in no way reflect the attitude of the entire nation, all 300 million of us.

I suppose by your logic all people on earth are huge jerks. When you generalize you might as well go as far as you can, why stop with America? Lets just go and say that these buttholes reflect the entire human race. I mean, if you`re willing to blame 300 million people for these 2 idiots, then you might as well be as ignorant as you can possibly be.

For the record, the war was a mistake. We are doing the best we can to fix that mistake with as little damage as possible. I do not wonder why the world hates my country, I wonder why while hating us they aren`t doing anything substantial about it. Hating for the sake of hatred I call it. People need something to hate that a lot of other people hate. It gives us, as human beings, a sense of belonging. "Hey, you hate America too?? Lets hate America

First you are bitching about the goverments treatment of troops, then the troops treatment of iraqis, then soldiers getting killed...just pick an issue and stick with it, and stop being a bleeding heart. It was funny, and im sure the kids got a kick out of racing down a road, its not like they have the fine entertainment of sitting infront of a screen and having big internet e-d1ck fights over what is and isnt acceptable in war.

Children throwing rocks are a threat because they damage equipment. A windshield is important because it provides temporary protection from debris and shrapnel. In combat, every second and every bit of protection are important and should be preserved.

LOL...and here we have another american genius claiming that invading Iraq, an ultimately innocent nation which was already struggling under the weight of its own problems and poverty, "wasn`t a good idea"(!), but "hardly makes America evil"(!!). Ha ha...you sick f-k. If that doesn`t make one evil, what does.

Oh and not to forget the moron right above him, who links to a video of little kids throwing *rocks* (at the invading forces that have annihalated them and destroyed their country no less), and tries to equate that with what the american military has done and continues to do to the Iraqi people.

Gotta love twisted american value systems. They can spout stomach-turning garbage like that (and mean it!) in one breath, and then before finishing the sentence, actually have the gall to wonder why the world hates them so much.

Jesus Christ he`s just one jackass, under the pressure of fire every day, taunting kids. He is hardly a representative of the entire u.s military force, especially not the entire u.s population. Also, he`s not beheading or car-bombing civilians simply because they follow a different branch of Islam either. I cant help but suspect that much of anti- americanisim is just humanities natural hatred for whoever is the best, and most powerful. Ex: Oprah, Duke, Bill Gates, and incidents like the Iraq war, which was not a good idea but hardly makes us evil, vauge stereotypes of arrogance and stupidity, and videos like this feed that anti-american sentiment.

doZer_roZZ... You are disgustingly stupid. It`s a good thing IAB puts this on the internet to create an awareness that the US severely lacks. We shouldn`t be shielded from what goes on in our country, in fact i think more videos like this should be posted. I can honestly say I am disgusted to be an American now.

And the american animals just keep on a`spoutin`. Gotta hand it to `em though...with all else under their consistently oversize belts, american oblivity just never ceases to amaze. No one else on the planet can hold a candle to their ability to keep digging their verbal graves instead of stfu while they`re ahead. :-D

Oh and to misguided nationalist-propaganda-swallowing jackasses like goaliejerry, who like to tell their more-aware compatriots that they can leave the country unmissed: wrong, actually. They HAVE been leaving, for about a generation now. It`s only nowadays that the brain drain is becoming overt, and is why americans are the new trailer-park trash of the world. Most of you like to tout america`s past nobility in your arguments, when in fact the modern one is such a pale, immoral mirror of the old that it may as well be another country. So uh, yeah, actually you do miss them...it`s just that most of those who remain are too stupid to know any better.

I can think of hundreds of wars and battles where your "highly intellectual" soldiers killed, raped and tortured many innocent humans. GET OFF YOUR F`ING SOAPBOX & SHUT IT!!!

And 2 jerks taunting kids with water does not mean we are equal to Saddam. Good thinking there, pal.

American`s seem to have a problem with that concept. Why do you think other nations started hating us? Because we as a nation have this grandiose idea that we`re so much better than the "barbarians". This vid shows how much better we are, right?

Sickening video that was. Reminds me of the video I saw a video of British soldiers beating up helpless Iraqi citizens while one of them laughed and video-taped it.

Can you blame us for being protective? Half of the Europeans on here have a "Higher-than-thou" attitude and the nerve to label entire countries. Many of you exclaim that all American soldiers should be shot or killed. Hypocrisy, pure hypocrisy. You are becoming the very thing you hate so much. I suggest you clean up your own countries before you criticise what we are doing. As a whole, our country hasn`t made the best decisions lately, but don`t think we aren`t trying to do something about that. Because we ARE.

"God i hate america"

DarthKarnage, than why are you here?!

I`m seriously getting tired of all this anti-America bullsh*it, it`s getting so old already. And I`m especially tired of all you Europeans sitting on your pedestals looking down on the world like you`re the supreme moral authority on what`s right and what`s acceptable. Germany has an extremely dark past for example, MILLIONS died in wars they started, but no one gives a sh*t now. And I`m not even going to mention the Northern Ireland conflict, which is pitiful in itself. Europeans are some of the most arrogant people I have ever seen (and I`m not talking everyone, I`m talking about the ones who think that they are God`s perfect creations and the U.S. is the source of all their woes). So keep on ranting about how much you hate the U.S., even though most of you probably have come here for vacation sometime or another (hypocrites!) just know that if the sh*t hits the fan again we`ll probably help you anyway ;-

We don`t know the facts, that`s a given, however, how the drat can you assume that they`re chasing a silver ball? we see bottle of water which he waves to the kid, atleast we know it`s THERE. this imaginary silver ball you guys are using to promote the fact that it`s a game doesn`t float...

Not all soldiers are bad.
It`s easy to critisize the U.S.A for being so powerful.
But don`t spew bullpoo about how they`re gonna sell it! or use it for nucler bomz!11! lolz3!

Oh and you can almost tell he through that bottle at the kid right when there was a crowd of people near by... it`s a bit TOO coincidental.

AJ-ratboy, how about a history lesson. Real quick. America proped up the Iranian Shaw. He was over-thrown by Anti-American elements. Then we sold weapons to Iraq (chemical, biological, etc.) because they were fighting Iran. They fought, used US supplied Chemical weapons, and 1,000,000 soldiers died. At the same time, we sold weapons to Iran too to get our hostages. (read: Iran Contra)

So, yes, he had old WMD`s, which we provided. And Iraq`s Nuclear capability? Thank you FRANCE, who built a reactor for them. Thank you Israel for destroying that.

Some people felt betrayed by France and Germany for not supporting the war. The reason they didn`t? Vested interests in Iraq. France sold Iraq $20 billion in weapons, and was Iraq`s No. 2 trading partner.

Nothing is as clear cut as it seems. Saddam was a problem the US and UK helped create. Once we all understand that, only then can we begin to responsibly deal with our mistakes.

So now you know.

And then in the next breath, you decry Wazhead with your patriotic rant? Which is it? Are you ashamed, or proud? Or both?

A lot of people are too "of the moment" here, and lack any sort of historical perspective.

That lack of perspective makes people Shirikil want to LEAVE the US because of our mistakes, to goto a country that has plenty of things to be ashamed for as well. F-ING READ A BOOK.

Wazhead, you have various posts scattered in here and it was difficult to read take them as a whole. You did address some things I remarked on, so please ignore those things.

We`re probably more like minded that different.

Its just that the way I see it is, don`t hate your home, change it! I change it by being an active Democrat. Change is happening now.

If somebody bad-mouths the USA, I take offense, because my home is integral to my identity. I`m no apologist. I`ll be the first to highlight American attrocities. (gang-raping 14 yr old girls, which US soldiers have been convicted of)

Every culture needs to own its mistakes, as they are fundamental to identity. Just as the Germans must account, so too must the US and the UK. It was the UK that shaped the current Iraqi map back in the day. It was they who ignored cultural boundries, it was they who imposed a client King.

So don`t hate the UK, VOTE AGAINST BLAIR!

History books? Do Germany`s history books tell an unbiased account of what occured during the holocaust? How long before they acknowledged the truth? Do Japan`s history books account for the rape of Nanking?

You assume that the American public is jubilant and supportive of this war? Do you think our history books THEMSELVES will record the Iraq war as a success? You fool yourself if you believe that we are ignorant of Reality.

Accountability? As I said, the Republicans lost control of not only the US Congress, but they lost across the board in state legislatures as well as govenorships.

People like Dan121314 who get their "facts" from talk radio pretend that both major US parties were equally for the war. Lets be clear. The Pro-war Party is the Republican Party. The Anti-war party is the Democratic Party.

Dan, people WERE against it in the first place. Your referance to the "liberal media" again shows that your talking points are Republican approved.

wazhead, first of all, once is enough, ok? Your post is neither well written nor insightful. We don`t need to read the exact same thing twice. We get it. You like yourself.

And secondly, it seems that you assume that the US populace is unanimous in its desire for the war and its support for continuing the war. Lets be clear. A REPUBLICAN president with a REPUBLICAN legislature opted to goto war. There were many who opposed the war since its inception, and have been vocal about that from the get-go. The Republicans have lost power as a direct consequence of their support for the war.

And you compare the war in Iraq to Hitler`s conquest of Europe? That right there is enough to discount your views, because 1) the USA does not have genocidal ambitions and 2) the USA is not out to conquer new domains under our flag. Iraq is soverign. They have their own government and military.

And many of us DO regret out president`s actions NOW. I didn`t vote for him.

right, Bush funded, endorsed, condoned, and encouraged it. he also saw the video and prmoted the guys who did it.

HOW, in all sanity, can you even think about bringing Bush into this? the word Bush was never mentioned, and it definitely wasnt what they were supposed to be doing. Bush had nothing to do with it. stop blaming all your problems on him.

take it easy people. in the end, nobody was really hurt. its not like they were shooting over peoples heads to entertain themselves or anything. and besides, they can stop to give out water, you have to keep moving or you are more vulnerable. and in the end he gave the kid the water, he probably didnt see the other kids until it was too late. Soldiers can get pretty annoyed with a local populace that likes to throw things at them and bomb them, so i`d say that if this is how they get a bit of release, this is pretty mild compared to what they could do if they were as sick as you all say.

Pres. Bush has the lowest approval rating in the history of the United States. Why, you wonder? Because he`s led us into a war when most of the country was against it.

And honestly, I don`t know what`s worse, what a couple of jackasses did on the back of that truck, or the idiots sitting there defending it. It doesn`t matter what happened before or after, that was flat out malicious. It`s chit like that that makes me ashamed to be an American at times.

Stupidity, ignorance, greed, and evil are universal human attributes. Anyone who points to examples and generalizes from them is guilty of one of the above - ignorance.

As if other cultures are immune to evil. As if other cultures are immune to international mistakes. Tell me where you`re from, I`ll give you a historical example of a wrong committed by your people.

Does that then mean that you are guilty? No? Oh, so then don`t generalize from snippets like this to then say America is bad. Europe, remember Adolf? Yeah, he smacked you around a bit. Germany, didn`t you enable him? And when we saved you all, still your pride remains - even though most of your people couldn`t defend your homelands.

Yeah, the Iraq war is messed up. But consider, within any population there will be criminals and immorals. The crime rate for the military is lower than that of the population at large. That seems to suggest that the military actually is less criminal.

WHAT DO YOU DO? if you even had an inkling that a country hostile toward you had wmd`s then im sure you would take some kind of action. and it didn`t really help that the weaposns were in the hands of a bastard like saddam. so, while we might have been wrong about the wmd`s, who`s to say that if we had done nothing and saddam stayed in power, that he wouldnt have gotten them someday? its called self defense people, we werent going to sit around til saddam felt the urge to get a nuke and bomb us to do something about it.

got i hate american ars.eholes.
not all americans are like this though. videos like this shows us who are the d.icks and who are respectable humans.
these "soldiers" are nothing more than a bunch of dropout fratboys who thought it would be cool to join the army and get a free gun!! anyone who thinks that the kids thought it was a game and they were chasing a ball needs to get there head of their a.rse, what happens to the kid when they throw the bottle after about a mile and half he stops to try and drink.and who the frigg brings up "we saved you during ww2" c`mon you bombed some japs and that was it. god i now know why americans are so hated.

Yeah, I will agree that is some drated up poo. But all you foreigners that are bashing the US, If you get invaded or have a 9/11 style attack on your soil, who the drat are you going to cry to? The US. Maybe we should have stayed out of ww2 and let Germany and Hitler own all your asses.

Yes, you are right AJ; they moved them. The Yanks sold them to them anyway, so they either destroyed or sold them. Thank you for admitting they didn`t have any. Was big of you that was. So, in conclusion, if you`re a big country you should only stick your nose in where you think you can win. My...That`s brave of them. AND they got it wrong again: They aren`t winning. America is a super-power: Power isn`t anything unless you use it once in a while- and that`s what USA is doing. Sticking it`s nose in where it isn`t needed just to see it`s own muscles flex because it makes them feel safer and more secure. The rest of the world needs to build a BIG mirror so that the USA can *ank over itself and keep itself satisfied. And no, I`m not speaking about ALL americans, just the ones who agree with the war and this clip. The rest have my upmost upmost admiration for living amongst so many knobends.

I can`t make out whether the cameraman says "Sir" or "Sarge". Either way, it`s an officer, commisioned or not. That`s wrong, long hours and years of work just to be wasted by torturing kids. I can`t wait until they discharge that Gun-ho Marine! That`s why I chose the Air Force!

Ok, so it`s a given that americans are worthless scum as a general rule, but ...is it because of their military animals (like those destroying Iraq and whatever remains of human dignity there), or because of their sickening apologist retards (posting under multiple nicks of course) right here? There`s a dilemma.

When America invaded Iraq, civilian water treatment faculties were decided to be valid missile targets. These poor children were running after those men who call themselves Americans because they havn`t had a clean drink of water in three years. Excuse me, I have to go puke after watching that.

Are you stupid? I`m American and I don`t support this stupid war. I support the soldiers only because they are human and I don`t want them to die, just like I don`t want Iraqi`s to die.

The reason many other countries hate us is because a lot of you assume ALL of us support this, when MOST of us don`t. I`m getting annoyed at seeing these videos of a few Americans doing something stupid, and having a lot the Europeans calling our entire country retards. Get over yourselves. You aren`t perfect either.

In reply to Bionic`s reply to my previous post. I will tell you my country, with shame, `The UK`. We were stupid enough to follow you into this ileagal war. (We owed you one after WWII remember)(How could we forget..you keep reminding us!). For the rest of the non-democratic world- YOUR and our democratic system allowed this to happen! What kind of advertisement is that for democracy? I know you are anti-war, as I am, and I`m sorry to bundle you personally into my rant against USAs actions. Democracy is a slow beast, taking years before the public make a move and vote out dickheads. I can`t help thinking that if we both had unbiased news coverage we would have decided quicker. The video though.... Is sick, plain and simple. No excusses: They are children. Just cos it`s another country`s children makes no difference whatsoever.

I find the video disgusting, I don`t know all the facts, it doesn`t change the fact it`s disturbing to watch though.

I also don`t understand why people are defending the soldiers so vehemently when they don`t know the circumstances either.

And I wish people would stop using this video to make very generalised statements - about Americans, Iragis or anyone else. It seems pointless andf silly to attack every single person in a country because of the acts of a few.

That was awful, and it was a horrible thing that those American soldiers did. No, not all American soldiers are as cruel as that, and no, that doesn`t mean America is stupid and all behave like those soldiers. However, it remains that we hear stories of rape, violence and torture from American soldiers.

So now laughing at children running after an army truck is RACIST? Fúck me, this has got absolutely mad.

Okay fine, it`s not right what they were doing but at the end of the day, we`re not troops in Iraq. We don`t know what`s going on over there. Condemning them just because they`re making children run after a bottle of water without knowing the full facts is wreckless. They don`t look poor to me. They`re all dressed suitably, the road is in good shape. There`s cars. It`s hardly the fúcking slums. This video doesn`t even compare to the one of THEM beheading US troops, but you`re all acting like it`s as bad! The children aren`t hurt!

You think they are playing a little game? The damn fu(king soldiers were harassing the little kids! The soldiers were amusing them selves by making the kids run for water, and the kid that was chasing them the most didn`t even get the fu(king water!

Even if the kid just wants to sell that water, the soldiers ought to be reprimanded for encouraging it.

All I can think of is that it`s a game, and both the soldiers and the kids know it.

If I allow myself to think that it was done in seriousness, I feel a great weight of depression and anger settle on me. I don`t think anyone could be that cruel - especially to kids. Maybe you think I am naive, but it`s the only way I can think without losing faith in humanity.

“Are you getting em?” “Yeh, I’m getting em Bud” Anyone can see that the soldier is taunting the children for his own amusement, and recording it specifically for that. It’s also unfortunate they are not aware that being in the US Army means they represent America. If this video clip is used as propaganda (which is highly likely) then we can understand why Iraq as a country continues to be unstable and why most Iraqi`s dislike America.

What, did you register just to say that? Then congratulations, you`re a true prick. But otherwise you`ve got us pegged. I`m definitely a sick, warmongering, greedy, powerhungry spoilt bottom-hole. Yup, the whole country is united under our current president with no thoughts of our own, no one EVER bitches about Bush. We love him and everything he does. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS, MORON? This is a war that the American public does NOT support. And to compare us to WWII Germany is just irresponsible. True, I believe the goal of the corrupt Bush administration was ultimately oil and now they don`t know how to go about extracting our troops, but our troops are not murdering for the sake of murder. If they were we`d just throw the nukes at the middle east and be done with it. You don`t know what you`re talking about; you don`t even have the courage to list your home country in your profile. Kiss my red, white and blue butt you jerk. I`m American and still proud of it.

Like the Germans under Hitler; you think you`re doing the right thing when really you`re doing the `right` thing. When you`re old and grey you will look back, as most of the Germans do now, with deep regret at your own actions. If you thought you would be held accountable in any way you`d stop now! There is NO WAY ON EARTH that this video is excusable. NO WAY.

When you`re stuck you epescially between a stone and a hard place, you must make a choice that follows the extreme of one of the two (hence the reason you are in the middle road right now). Either we shud comepletely pull out, or completely draft our men. Why should more people die for such a pointless war. We can pull out, nothing will happen, we messed up, nothing more to it.

We`re stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place. Thank Bush for that one.

... "The weight of bombs dropped increased from none in March 2002 and 0.3 in April 2002 to between 8 and 14 tons per month in May-August, reaching a pre-war peak of 54.6 tons in September."

Ya man... we bombed the heck outta them. What did we do then? we established a "democracy." And how are we gonna uphold this joke of a "democracy?" Oh wait... the goverment didn`t think of that... but it`s all good because Iraq is too poor to send us a letter of cease and desist. The US created the problem, terroism is a conveniant explanation for why we screwed those people over. No duh they are pissed, I say we leave the country and just hope they forget everything we did.

pat125, there`s a difference between causing something and being responsible for it. By removing the very power base that kept everything in check, the United States permitted factions to rise up and vie for power, hence the instability.

But that`s right, your poor critical thinking skills tell you otherwise so you believe them.

--------------------------------
No one MAKES someone blow themselves up or kill their own people. You have to be a sick individual to do it in the first place, regardless of who is in your country. And the reason this was not happening before is because the populous feared Saddam and his mass executions, and any upheaval would have been suppressed mercilessly. Now that they have been introduced to freedom, the religious extremism has had a chance to blow up. The problem is NOT the U.S., the problem is terrorism. But that`s right, the BBC tells you otherwise so you believe it.

Even if they thought this was a game, that`s pretty low to take advatange of their innocence to just please yourself. Even if they don`t understand english, taunting the child is still crul. And can you blame them running their hearts out to just make a quick buck? Did you see their faces? they are dirt poor! That extra buck they make can be an extra day of food. To you a dollar may be nothing, they will take any, and EVERY job avaible to them so they can make some money. Also this isn`t a media attack, just some scums who think they are allshots.

Anyone who thinks they were running because they needed the water is an idiot. They could have been holding a rubber ball and they still would have done the same thing. They thought it was a game! Now I`m not saying what the soldiers did was right or in good taste (it was actually quite disturbing), but the fact is that those kids probably have water at home..and why? Because of the hard work U.S. troops have put into restoring a pure water supply. Maybe if their own people didn`t blow everything up every chance they get things would go a little more smoothly in that country.

And as for the Europeans who think they live in some moral utopia, open your eyes and look around you. What`s happening in France will eventually spread, and then you`ll all be crying that you didn`t do something sooner to stop this crap. Things may not be pretty in the middle east, but we have to put a stop to terrorism and religious fascism THERE, and NOT wait until we have to do it here.
