Is there a reason you can't take 30 seconds to consider what actually happened there and the reasons why as opposed to spouting off a sarcastic rant implying that United States soldiers are evil robots who terminate little innocent people pushing shopping carts because they're bored?

Many points have been raised in this thread about contributing factors to incidents like these.

It is so easy to disregard the real world when you're trying to write up poetic slogans that people can use for signs during the next protest isn't it.

Honestly, I don't think this community is the place for people who wish to levy attacks on others without even bothering to put in some thought into it. There are thousands of other groups who do just that. It's as if it's too much to ask that someone THINK and READ before implying that someone else is a murderer.

How special.

Well, isn't this what some people here want to hear or read, how the US-troops always does just good and righteous things and how everyone against them are just a bunch of evil insurgents? I see so many threads go into just this, justifying the actions of the troops/individuals even when it is obvious that those people are committing war crimes.


How do you justify the killing of unarmed demonstrators? Or is it that they protest against the coalition, therefore they are insurgents and potential danger to the troops and therefore 'Shoot first and ask later'-mentality kicks in?

You can see how the troops are being prepped for action etc., 'The Satan lives in Fallujah' and that kind of crap. No wonder so many incidents happen when the troops are already thinking the worse of every human there. Of course they must be prepared to deal with difficult situations but why is it usually the US-troops that f**** up, is it just the media, more US-troops present, bad training?
