Default Collateral Murder

Released recently on wikileaks was a video of American soldiers gunning down innocent civilians and REUTERS journalists, both of them being Iraqi, from a chopper. In the video the soldiers mistook the cameras as weapons and killed this group of civilians and 1 of the journalists. The other journalist, attempting to crawl away to safety, just barely living was being picked up by a van driving around to look for wounded people and survivors. Also in this van were 2 children. These soldiers waited for an excuse to shoot this van to pieces. They had none, shot the van anyways. The only survivors were the 2 children, who were severely wounded....

These soldiers enjoyed every moment of this slaughter. They congratulated each other, said "Look at those dead bastards. Good shooting." This really just..... hurts me. I really can't understand..... This isn't liberation, this is genocide. This is only one case which has been released. No doubt infinitely more of these.......

Here's the video.... you be the judge.



Oh yeah, and did I mention the army tried to cover up the mistake with lies? More information in this interview.

Does anyone one know why they started fighting in the first place?
I mean.
How long has it been sence the war started? (If you can call it a war.)

You hear it on the news every single day.
"Lots of people killed by a bomb of some sort." "People killed in firefights."
I can't even act suprised anymore.

And as you said.
This can't be the only group of civilians they have mowed down over the years.
Who knows what kind of sick shit you'll find @ pentagon.
And all the soldiers that get sent to Iraq is sent to "keep the order". (Atleast the swedish ones.)
All I can say is, what order?
Mowing down civilians isn't to "keep the order" anywayz.

I saw it on our news yesterday.
It's always a shame when harmless people get killed.
Sometimes we live in a really fucked up world.
They're acting like they're playing some kind of video game, trying to get the highest scores/kills.
There's just nothing that can make up for this irresponsible shooting.

well you always have to think about both sides of the story, they were just trying to live and protect themselves, yet they should have take waaay more precaution and they shouldnt have been such aholes about the people they just killed.

i dunno.

Meh. Shit happens in war. I watched some of it and I felt more like someone was trying to put blame on every little thing than anything else.
