    Murder. Pure and simple. I'm getting so sick of American based on the actions of US murderers in uniform. I hope those helicopter shooters fucking die horrible deaths.

    It looks as though they mistook his camera equipment for weaponry.
    Good lord.

    It's really true..."Shoot first, ask questions later", makes me sick.

    Wow, while I have great respect for our military, and what they do, this is just fucking insane. There has got to be a way to kill the hostiles, and leave the damn civilians out of it!!! [​IMG]

    Mistakes happen, that's just life.

    But what really sickens me is that they tried to cover up the whole incident instead of just admitting their own mistakes.

    I don't want to defend them for their killings but from the video it does look like weapons, maybe not an RPG but yes, it looks like it could of been potentially harmful.

    Now instead of firing right off the bat they could of checked with something, binoculars or whatever they have...not something in black and white

    Alight, one big thing that I've seen missing is that fact that they were already most likely looking for terrorists. So when they saw these guys on a crappy screen they fit the bill. Still, they should have checked a little better then that.

    Then again, this is the same place that the dropped a 225-kg laser guided bombed from a F-16 on Canadian Forces back in 2002. Four Canadian soldiers died and wounded eight, they were just out for some exercise.

    The US Army really needs to check better before they start shooting and bombing people. Too many lives have already been lost in this war, we don't need to add to that list.

    Where intellect matters
    Places like Fox News will literally look for anything death or gun related, mistake it for "something else", and slap some video game propaganda shit just to prove how it's the devil.

    They'll literally shame not only the lives of the many people who died, but even the people who were doing the killing, just for their bullshit political agenda.

    They take deaths, and use it as their weapon. Sounds a lot like the devil (or whatever you, the person reading this, believes in) to me.

    dudes, you gotta do what you gotta do out there. i don't agree with war, but if you decide to go, shoot every fucking thing in your way and take no mercy. hell even make them suffer. thats what war is. everyone likes to think it can be civilized but its WAR. kill or be killed. ftw and go crazy, you have every right. if you are risking your life to defend something, you will do what you have to do..

    so ive seen it. is anyone forgetting the fact that these gentlemen WERE ARMED and FIRING. i can't stand propaganda, at least edit that part out to make it seem like you have an argument.
