wag the dog

not enough detail or facts to form an opinion, especially since there is rarely anything factual to compare to

just a thought, maybe the offender was proven guilty & given a choice, be handed over to locals for hand removal or lose the car

of course the commentator takes the everybody deserves to create pain in this world mentality, possibly the guy was lying & transported cocaine in that car

i suppose we will never know, just assume & let the tail wag the dog

reminds me of accountants who take the life savings of their clients, the reason they were hired is probably because the client had little time for what the expert did, boils down to scruple`s & trust, you would never expect it to happen, although when it does are you truly suprised

everyone has their price & too many give it away for free, trust with checks & balances, sounds like democracy, the alternate sounds totalitarian

Soliders are soldiers, not the judge, jury, and executioners. And yes, they are executioners because they killed that man`s livlyhood in one blow. Seeing as though most of their utilities were cut off it`s pretty hard to cook food withouth gas or electricity, which is highly expensive in Europe. Great, now the man can`t work, which is only going to force him to steal even more.

USACT, aka Col. Johnathan Mattews of the US Army, either A) you`re a troll, or B) A complete non-nice individual. As a member of the US Army you should know that it`s illegal for a solider to criticize the president, thanks to good ole Dubya and friends. The fact that you signed your name to the one post you`ve ever done on this site pretty much proves that you`re a troll.

You know, this reminds me of the movie "The Beast" in which a Soviet tank does pretty much the same thing to an Afghanisthani.

It shows the level of moral bankrupcty that America is in that it is compared infavoroubly to the Soviets.

That was pretty funny. Maybe next time they won`t steal. To think, in other countries those looters would have been killed for doing that, and everyone is making such a huge deal out of it. I think they got what they deserved. Who`s to say they weren`t stealing someone else`s livelihood?

I feel bad for the people who come back to find that, while their wood has not been looted, it has been crushed to tiny bits under a tank.

I thought it was a bit harsh of a punishment, but they still shouldn`t have stolen wood. In that respect, I have no sympathy for them.

And why is it that the whole of America is judged by a small group of soldiers? Even counting the other ones in the past who were messed up, it`s still a small group in comparison to the majority.

Those who wonder what right America has to judge other countries--what right do you have to judge America for judging other countries then?

Ok here`s to all of you people critizing the US troops in this video. You dont get the full story with this video. It was shot for a documentary so they didnt tell you everything. SO I will. This happend at the begining of the invasion. The Iraqi people had been caught looting before and had been warned. They where caught in the act of looting again, they where taking in right off a building whose female owner was powerless to stop them. So then the Iraqis where detained and only after it was clear with the tankers HQ the car was crushed.

Sorry if I seem upset about this but when you over there and you see good people get blow to bits by and enemy that wont fight you face to face it gets agrivating.

If you want to bad mouth somebody bad mouth Bush, not the kids you are dieing for Iraqs freedom. You got some pretty big balls to critize some one whose fighting for the rights of someone the`ve never met. When you just sit at home and enjoy yours.

Johnathan Matthews Col. US Army.

"...But if there is one thing you don`t need in the Middle East, its a campfire. They don`t need the wood as badly as you all think."

...Which justifies having their car run over with a tank. Ah yes, it makes complete sense to me now.

What a bunch of morons. They ride around in a tank & see a couple of people with a car that has wood ontop and assume that they looted it. If they don`t even speak there language and understand what they`re saying, how are they supposed to know where the wood came from? And even if the wood WAS stolen, what gives them the right to destroy a man`s car for it?!!

good thing we`re working hard to build an Iraqi government with a system of courts, judges, and trials.

oh wait...

nope, if a soldier thinks you did something wrong, he gets to completely f*ck your entire life over.

Damn American soldiers. Sorry if anyone here is, or knows one, but all we get on tv is to see the big gun-toting American GIs doing stupid stuff with their guns and tanks because they believe they`re above the rest of us.
Don`t get me wrong, I`m sure there`s plenty of good, hardworking intelligent soldiers in the US army - but it seems to me they also recruit too many arseholes that get themselves in trouble like Guantanemo).

My mum always told me to `think before I took action`. I wonder if these guys didn`t get that in their training.

i super agree with him

oh btw, they need to use wood to cook, unlike us, they dont use gas or electricity, not because its not available, but they cant afford it. And I think they got a fair punishment. Maby next time they wont steal.

Okay. First off, I could understand defending these Iraqi looters if they were stealing something essential such as food. But if there is one thing you don`t need in the Middle East, its a campfire. They don`t need the wood as badly as you all think. Second, if it weren`t for our soldiers, they would have had it much worse than a broken taxi. Can`t drive your pooty car without hands, right?

Hrm... if running over a car is the punishment for looting wood, I wonder what punishment the soldiers will receive for destroying a car. Considering, in a democracy, people tend towards jail time and fines, not "cutting off someone`s hand for stealing", or in this case, destroying a car for stealing. Kind of ironic that the American troops, who are attempting to establish a democracy (though I doubt that goal anymore since we don`t even have one here), use extremist punishments one would expect of Osama.

Learn something new everyday I guess. So next time you go to Home Depot and see someone stealing something, remember - it`s your right as an American to destroy their car. Because that`s not cruel or unusual punishment.

It may be the action of a few, however, it has affected the now over 2,800 US military lives lost as well as the over 30,000 Iraq citizens. To those that are not from U.S. and are seeing this, remember, this is not the sentiment of the majority in the United States of America. I can understand why many of those in other countries feel like they do towards us.

Do keep in mind that although the media has covered more of the bad that has happened rather than the good, there has been a lot of progress in Iraq in terms of the capture of Sadaam Hussein and the release of many innocent political prisoners. Unfortunately, those stories do not seem as prevalent as stories such as what we have watched here in this video.

To those soldiers in this film, FU*CK you for putting my friends and family in danger just so that you prove to these struggling Iraq families how big your tank is.

I find it ironic that we are trying to build a democracy in the mid east using Iraq as an example, and yet, we see the actions like this, as well as others, from our own U.S. soldiers. Its one thing to enforce and protect in war torn country, its another to demoralize and disrespect a father, in front of his son, in their own country, because we feel like we are doing whats best for them. I have family and friends in the military, many educated and have better judgement than what you see here. I understand that I can not relate to what these soldiers may go through, but these soldiers dont realize that its their uncivilized actions that is stirring the hatrid in the Middle East and putting our brothers, sisters, and friends in danger.(Continued)

Wish I caught this post the first time around, while it was still fresh.

I first saw this clip on a PBS show whose name eludes me at the moment. I don`t fully know the circumstances around what happened, but even if the man was known to have looted the wood, one, it wasn`t right for the soldiers to take justice into their own hands and two, this justice should have been in the form of a fine and\or jail sentence.

Hope someone of higher rank and greater integrity saw that clip and disciplined those soldiers.

Ok and who is to say the wood they were looting didnt come from a family that was trying to rebuild thier lives. Guess ppl never thought of that either. Wood is expensive and I think they got what they deserve. I would have done the same and I would do more if someone came to my home and stole my wood.

We found some people trying to steal wood so we destroyed the main earners livelyhood and their only means of transportation, most likely leaving them stranded in a war-torn country.

Because that obviously seems fair.
