Are you sure that those weren't american soldiers in arabesque attire, shooting down the helicopter in hopes of creating civilian casualties as it crashed?

But don't worry, luckily there where no civilian cassualties when the incompitant british troops crashed in a residential area.

Well that depends on which reports your reading.

Anyway, words are words, but even your eyes can see how those southern iraqies are cheering the death of those british soldiers.

You just described 99% of ATS.

Maybe the site can be renamed "ARMCHAIR TERRORIST SOCIETY".

Skippy and Syrian Sister should get together and have little hate babies,
jihad and "crusade for democracy" need more cannon fodder.

I'm just trying to expose the propoganda that Iraq supports the occupation.

No need to sicken me with that degrading proposition.

So what was the point of this post beside showing that these specific people are against the occupation? That says nothing for an entire country. Thats like saying the political views of this country are represented by New York or any state in the bible belt.

Lets stop making this a personal arguement. Syrian Sister has a perfectly valid point, lets keep to discussing it.

This whole thing could have been orgestrated by the insurgents to make it look that way. Odd the MSM did not carry still photos of these civilians protesting makes me go HMMMM. It has set up & propaganda written all over it.

Don't worry Syrian Sister - it's coming to you very soon, and I am sure you will be just as enthusiastic every time your country (Syria) shoots one down (what's the going rate, 6 - 7 a year?).

Victory at last

Syrian sister what are you going to do when the Isrealis come to a town near you. Hide in a mosque or as the men do hide behind woman and children. Cowards.

Yes, but the point should have been made in other ways. Showing videos of our soldiers is not something I particular want to see. It may be the truth and yes.. the truth does hurt, watching people celebrate the deaths of our soldiers appears to be a swipe at the U.K/U.S members of these forums IMO.

I'm sure we are not loved over there, infact probably the opposite. I'm sure most other members know the area is hostile. But for those (if any) who do not, a swipe showing Iraqis celebrating a 'live' helecopter crash just isn't the way.


Call me ignorant.. but in some cases ignorance is bliss.

Boo freaking hoo.

What's so special about the US and UK that people shouldn't be allowed to post anything that makes us feel bad?

We invaded these people's country and killed thousands of them, of course they're going to cheer when they see us get a taste of our own medicine.

Do I feel sorry for the dead British pilots? Sure.
I also feel sorry for the Iraqi that gets to drag half of their dead four year old's shredded corpse out of the wreckage of their home after a coalition airstrike.

Death, pain, and grief are universal, and know no national or ethnic boundaries.

And you really think that was posted earnestly? I sure don't. I think I can also say you don't have relatives and friends you know over there? Hell if they die or even their friends die lets post it! I mean we should see how happy they are that our troops are being killed, one of these days I might even see family on here, but like you say 'boo hoo' because we should be shown a 'taste of our own medicine' eh?!

Yes I would feel sorry if I saw such carnage. But then again I wouldn't go and post it on an Iraqi website. And i'm sure even you can sense just a hint of a biased view, IMO this isn't proving a fact, more of a swipe at people like me.
