Iraq Soldier Discusses His "Kills" (VIDEO)

Of the testimonies we filmed, this one, by Iraq War vet Jon Michael Turner, was the most compelling and intense.

Ummmm... i am slightly unsure as to what to comment here. This is a POWERFUL video to watch. Some fascinating and scary insights into the psyche of this soldier and his company.

So, this guy admits he just randomly killed innocent civilians, just walking on the street or riding their bike.

I just don't get that, no matter how much stress you're under, or how many friends got killed, how can one do that?

He had a choice, and decided to kill those people. He is a murderer.

Good thing he decided to come clean, but I think it won't be enough to cleanse his karma.

Ok i have found the original article:

There was an apparent typo in the article from my original post, it mentioned 2007, when in fact this event happened this year within the last month and is only now getting some MSM attention. The news article from the original post, however, had the correct date stamp, the date was just incorrect within the article.

Just giving this a bump. I certainly wouldn't want to be put in any situations like our troops find themselves in daily. It's tough to say what one would do... and factor in 'training' (brainwashing) and 'orders' and who really knows what they are capable of.

I was thinking the same thing, if this person and his company are doing this, plus with the reaction of the press regarding their actions when the press has turned its back, it really made me think this must be going on more than we think.

I would stop, however, at the point of saying this is the 'norm'.

Very moving. I wonder if the soldiers that are testifying are worried about being charged with war crimes?

It makes one wonder if there are any "moderates" left in Iraq. Their families are so close, and so extended, the hatred this type of killing would cause would affect quite a few. Heck just the abusive home searches would be enough to create plenty of Jihad fighers and sympathizers.

how do you feel about having troops showing this type of behavior on the streets of America?

I'm not talking about gang members going around doing drive by shootings..

I'm talking .. gov approved .. random killing.

I know someone that is going back to Iraq in 2 weeks..
for the fourth time .. as a mercenary.
He used to be in the Marines and has been anywhere and everywhere you can think of over there.
He's been in two hummer ied accidents and in one he was the only survivor and in the other only 3 survived and he had to take charge after a return to consciousness and made the call to let his fellow soldier to die because of the condition he was in.

The stories this man has told and the pictures he has shown is a truth colder and harder than my heart knows how to understand. He does not lie and when he first went over there, he actually had compassion. He said that after 6 months, then a year then two years of active duty ripped his heart out. He used to try and help the people but day after day after day after day changes you.

I haven't even seen the video in this thread and I don't need to.
It's war over there. There is no law where there is no camera.
Rape is overlooked, killing has become a betting game and feeling for the fellow human exists only for the man beside you helping you stay alive because men, women, children and grandparents are all trying to kill the soldiers.

Since the Gulf War and being in the military myself, I've lost friends to mind collapse as well as death. They are one and the same. I truly have nightmares from things I have never seen but have been told in a detail from eyes devoid of emotion at first but speckeld with blood from the emotional trauma by the end of the accounts.

It is war.

Unless the soldier was that way before he went into the military, I do not blame him 100% I blame the human condition for being a part of it's environment and if your environment is death, you become a mechanism of death.

Here's a link on Youtube with the video...

Sort of answers why "some" Iraq's don't want the Americans there...

As I heard yesterday.. the US is only in Iraq to police it.. they are no longer in a war.. their monitoring and participating in a Civil war where the US has picked a side.

Iran will be next.. a war needs to continue to feed the "War" machine.. it is it's life blood..

Thanks for that... i had been searching Youtube for longer versions of this guys interview and all 6 that i found 'Video no longer exists'. I wonder if that has been a small effort to ensure that this soldier and his story is silenced.

I found it incredibly odd.
