Firstly, do you think you could try not to link to pornography sites next time?



The video you linked to is shot from the inside of a military vehicle, presumably a US vehicle. It shows them driving down a road, and people in their cars not getting out of the way.

So what?

If they're killing troops over this, then they're scum that deserve to die. They should get the hell out of the way of a military vehicle that is screaming down the road.

These nitwits that aren't moving are like the same fools that don't pull over when an ambulance is running down the road.

I didn't saw the video, but I suppose its the same talked about in this thread.

If it is I think this thread should be closed.

You have no context for this video, and my guess is you've probably never been to Iraq. If you're in a convoy, the last thing you want to do is sit, stuck in traffic. That's dangerous as hell. Rules of the road with regards to how to react to military convoys are well known to Iraqis, as the government and the military have been putting it out for years now. Iraqi drivers still try to run checkpoints, or get close to convoys, knowing that deadly force might be used. That was a huge issue when I was there. Trying to figure out why they did it, and if if was a matter of just lack of awareness. We'd see Iraqis try to run a checkpoint because they were in a hurry, and their family would end up dying in a hail of bullets. Their excuse was I knew I shouldn't but I played the odds because it was inconvenient for me to stop. The insurgents make maximum use of chokepoints and traffic to target convoys, so it's imperative that they keep moving. I had several coworkers killed by an SVBIED while in convoy, so I have little patience for those that ignore warnings.

Can you say for certain the video was in fact driven by Americans? I know I can't and I doubt anyone can say for certain. For all anyone knows the video may have been put together by insurgents to make people think it is the case when in fact it was not
