    Honestly Im too heated up to say my opinion, cause if I did it will involve a lot of swearing and anti-american comments.

    This is a very old leak put out by wikileaks. I remember about 9 months ago a long discussion about this.

    Without getting into a debate about this again, all I have to say is war is hell and the best we can do is hope for peace.

    40 minutes I will never get back. So precisely what was the beef, as I don't make a habit of worrying if I see every wiki leak.

    Because all Americans are huge war supporters.

    I do get annoyed of everyone thinking America "sucks" or is "full of bad people" because things we don't have control over things that get fucked up. At least say "I hate the American government, not the people".

    Glad to hear you have just discovered Wikileaks only more than a year late.

    On Topic: This is terrible, and something should be done to punish those directly responsible for this incident. However, you kind of forget that this is a war against a difficult to identify enemy. Unfortunately, things like this do happen in such a situation.

    Also, "Anti-American comments"? Because every single American supports this war and the murder of civilians. Of course! I mean, it isn't like a select few purposefully withheld the information from the public; if we had all been told, we would have all celebrated it with American Apple Pie and Hotwings! And it isn't like the governments of any other country have ever taken morally dubious actions before; nope, just the good old US of A!

    Seriously, grow up. I hate to break this to you, but the real world isn't as simple as you seem to think it is.

    Saw this ages ago. Thought it was pretty bad, but considering all the crap that happened during the war, not surprising in the least.

    Also prediction: angry Americans rage at OP till thread is locked.

    Although the War on Terror as been a bit sketchy, It's unfair to blame all Americans for the many mistakes the American Army and the American Government have made.

    I'm pretty sure that it is obvious that the thoughts of a country's government aren't always the thoughts of its citizens.

    Unless you want to hate America for retarded reasons.

    Exactly, I don't think anyone could have said this as well as you did Slyakin.

    Well I won't give my opinion since it will only cause a flamewar. However, we all can't think on the same picture.

    You mean wikileaks for releasing this, or the people mindlessly shooting the civilians?

    The people shooting the civilians, yeah, they be worthless scum not even fit to call sub-human waste. The civilians on the other hand, may their spirit haunt those that shot them forevermore.

    Yep. All of us Americans are flag-toting war mongers who see absolutely nothing wrong with shooting innocents if the soldiers are bored enough.

    Just like all Australians are horrible criminals who would slaughter their own grandmothers for a stick of gum.




    Also, please share your opinion. I'm intensely interested in what a slow to wake Aussie kid thinks about my country and its citizens.

    Really? How shallow are you, generalising all Americans as war-mongering heartless creeps?

    Look kid, war is tough. People die. But you can't say all Americans are bad people from a single video. Grow up kid, life is not full of rainbows and pretty castles.

    I'm actually part British (Via my Moms side of the family), Part American (Via my Dads side of the family in modern day), and part Polish (My last name stems back in many incarnations way back into Poland) Because of the logistics in my heritage, I am actually entitled to Dual-Citizenship as well, being a British Citizen and an American Citizen.

    Anyway, I'll give you my opinion. It's not the People over here that anger me (At least aside from the ignorant customers at work, but we'll exclude them for the sake of remaining true to the discussion), it's the US government . I have studied the British Government and every piece of it makes more sense to me than the US one ever had. I don't see why we need two conflicting parties ripping each-others heads off and bickering, rather than getting down to business. It seems to me when I do hear about goings on in the British Government, that although both parties do tend to disagree at points, they at least wholeheartedly attempt to come to a rational and neutral solution, in far less time than the US Government seems to take doing the same thing.

    Of course, I may believe this is the case, but it may be deep down it may just be my Pride causing me to side this way, and to be honest, if thats the reason behind my hate of the US Government, then I'm perfectly fine with accepting that. Again, I do not truly know which it is unless I dive deep within my own mind and heart.

    So yes people of the USA, I do not hate you, I never have, I think your country is beautiful and majestic, and full of variety. It's your government that irks me and twists my tail the wrong way. The British Government has never done this to me in any way.

    Oh and British Candy and Soda totally outperforms the US stuff on every level imho, but this is irrelevant.

    This wouldn't solve anything, just for a quick heads up. Any Democrat could do the exact same thing, as could any Republican, or any other party for that matter.
