There are all kinds of atrocities, and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns, which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search and destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare, all of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions and all of this is ordered as a matter of written established policy by the government of the United States from the top down. And I believe that the men who designed these, the men who designed the free fire zone, the men who ordered us, the men who signed off the air raid strike areas, I think these men, by the letter of the law, the same letter of the law that tried Lieutenant [William] Calley, are war criminals.

Nobody is waving! Those TERRORISTS are trying to stash RPGs and weapons in that field, apparently setting up for an ambush. In my estimation, they got EXACTLY what they deserved... a shredding by an Appache's 30mm! This is WAR! There is no need to be nice or compassionate toward our enemies.

but , you can`t go round `finishing off` a clearly wounded SOLDIER who cannot fight anymore.
u can never be sure if they are "finished" they probably have suicide vests on, or if the Americans get close they can pull the pin of the grenade and throw it at them, i remember the Marines lost a couple after they thought one was dead.

I have never seen any proof of that, they might just as well have been farmers, as they do drive a tractor. You have no proof whatsoever they are terrorists other than your belief somehow the US is infallible and couldn't possibly miss.
