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?
