Since when does a collection of Corporations count as a "Country?"

*USA! USA! USA! USA!*

Its a shame that poor guys camera was mistaken for a gun. But, thats what you're risking when you go into a "hot" zone.

This is a tragic situation. Unfortunately, Im sure this isnt the first time something like this has happened, and surely wont be the last...what's despicable is the governments blatant attempt to cover up what was nothing more than an unfortunate accident. It would have been much better in the long run, had they just explained it was a case of mistaken identity. Friendly fire exists in every war, you rarely hear about it, because it is a very tragic embarrassing thing that happens in war

If anything, the sheer firepower alone the U.S. possesses should make people think twice about threatening us.

Personally, I think David and Goliath was a fluke, and usually the Goliath always wins.

Its never a pretty sight when innocents get caught in the cross hairs. This sort of thing happens in many different environments. Ever heard the phase, "guilty by association?" I had a reporter friend who was interviewing a known L.A. gang for a piece he was writing for our local newspaper. It was broad daylight. Cops showed up on the street to do a drug bust, and got into a shootout with some of the gangs, he tried to take cover from the police fire, but one of the gang members suspected my friend of being an undercover agent, (since he was there right before the raid happened) and shot him in the back of the head.

its not the fact that innocent were killed exactly because yes mistakes do happen and are unavoidable in war but the government covered it up. the soldiers were to excited and eager to get the shots in and they had a total lack of respect for the bodies when running over them. enemy or not they should have respect for the dead

War is nothing but legalized murder. This is what happens when Congress doesn't approve war.....it never ends....nor will there ever be a winner.

I agree.

I actually think the attitude and relaxed and "Jokey" way these soldiers talk about all the killings and the incident in general, is as bad as the killings themselves.

Truly disgusting.

I just did a search on Reuters and strangely enough they're not covering it. I would have imagined out of all the agencies they'd be the first to want in on this action.

Strange, don't you guys think?

USA USA USA USA! I hate this backward type of thinking! and its this kind of stuff that makes the world a bad place, all this "my country, your country" crap!

I am English, but i dont give a crap about that. I care more about us as a species, and not different bloody counties. And as long as we have this backward,primitive way of thinking, then we will always be on the brink of major wars.

You talk as if america is untouchable, no they are not. No country is.

the 3 missiles they put into that building were really upsetting, just before the first missile hit, it seemed although a passer by was just walking past which was visable on the cam before the missile was fired, then instantly he is consumed in an explosion of debris, its so upsetting, he had no gun or anything. Same goes for the second missile, which was fired into a small crowd of people looking for survivors??

Watch the video. He puts it on the ground and its a long tube, he loads it and then starts to pick it up. You're only seeing part of it in that screen cap. Dont let me get in the way of your circle jerk though. Its obviously normal for a photographer to take up defensive positions behind walls.

Here is pointing something at the Apache, after crouching behind a wall. If the guy has a camera hes doing everything he can to look like a suspicious character.



By the way, why the need for 5 tripods? Because each one of those guys has a long thing in his hand.

Which suggest the story might not be what wikileaks claims? Reuters has had no problems attacking American troops in the past, or photo-shopping damage in Lebanon to look worse than it was.

I'm not singling you out, merely replying to you (along with all others that have this sentiment). Think about this for a minute. If the military did nothing wrong and this is, in fact, a harsh reality of being in a "hot zone", then why did Reuters have no luck obtaining this video via the FOIA?

COVER-UP!!!

What happened here is a war crime, make no mistake about it!

Sure, this type of thing probably happens routinely...and that makes things even more horrific...but regularity of similar occurrences doesn't justify it.

Maybe because they will claim that the video was illegally obtained, and anyone who runs this could be held liable.

Just a thought.

Have you checked into that ATS overlords?

So I guess this is being blatantly covered up right in front of our eyes.

The powers that be are losing control.

This is great. I enjoy watching them scramble like headless chickens on cover up quests.

I am glad the Truth is evident for everyone to see.

TPTB are spreading wholesale slaughter.

I personally liked it better when America spread knowledge and respect and the ideals of liberty and freedom. It made more sense than this barbaric murder stuff...

I'll bet this is nothing new.

Matter of fact, I'm sure of it because every time I've seen a TV segment on the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, it always seems to involve "collateral damage" (murdering civilians.)

Not that we've murdered over a million in Iraq alone, are we really all that different than Nazi Germany?

They're embedded. They're the 4th branch right now they probably can't do anything about it. I doubt they can risk running the story.

They may very well have been the ones that leaked this video to wikileaks. We don't know the source.

The difference between us and the people that we kill is that we apologize and admit mistakes.



Do you actually believe this ?

Did you not notice the lies and coverup by the officers reporting this case ?
