Hey, just wanted to point of that I haven't seen much mention of the 40 min version. I have not watched the 17 min version, only the full 40 min
My question is, did any one else notice, when they sent the first Hellfire missile into the triangular building, the civilian walking on the sidewalk
in front of the building, seemingly unaware of any danger, suddenly blown away, engulfed in the explosion when the building was hit... then, a couple
minutes later, similar to the van situation, it looks like there are civilians approaching the blown out building, climbing through the rubble to
potentially look for survivors inside, --- only to be hit again by another Hellfire missile... soon followed by a third Hellfire missile?
My question is... are these the actual rules of engagement? We kill indiscriminately? We patrol the streets with choppers and use cannons to take out
anyone holding a rifle? Is it the rules of engagement to then kill any first responders to our attacks?
Iraqi's have been living with our botched bombings, so I imagine it's not unthinkable that moments after an explosion hits a building, concerned
Iraqi's might venture out and try to help potentially innocent people who are hurt... and these concerned citizens may be thinking, with life hanging
in the balance, time is of the essence to save innocent Iraqi civilians.
So is it part of our Rules of Engagement to ignore this basic human compassion, and basically if we blow up a building from a mile away, and concerned
citizens of Iraq venture out of their homes to assist wounded, we go ahead and send in another missile to blow 'em all to hell?
Anyone else notice that? Please let me know if I'm wrong in my perception of the events...
