This is "proof" to the OP because it fits within his preconceived notion of the world; specifically the military.
It doesn't need to be true; he couldn't care less if it is, or isn't. The point, IMO, is the OP has a undeniable hatred of the military and this
video is fuel for that fire.
He's called for the solider to be executed over a dog. He's cast dispersions on the entire military (of course he has absolutely no
understanding of the military beyond his pre-drawn conclusions), made the assertion that the military are rapists and murders and articulated his
loathing of said military members several times.
He has re framed comments from posters into something they did not say and demanded they prove the video is a fake. Of course, he should prove
the video is real but, he's not going to bother. After all, to him, IMO, it matters not.
About proof: only mathematics provides proof. Everything else in life is based on the preponderance of evidence.
There is no reason to engage someone in conversation when they aren't interested in conversation or even willing to entertain the video might be
fake. Shoot, if the video is fake, he will come back and claim George Bush had something to do with it.
You can't have productive exchanges of ideas with those who are so hard-over they can't see the forest, despite the trees.
