the disgusting behaviour of the soldiers (mistaking cameras for weapons and then calling in that they've seen people with "AK-47s" - a ridiculous accuracy level for something they just made up)...

Some of you are blind. I'm against all of the wars we are in, having stated that I watched the video and two of those guys had cameras, one guy had a rocket launcher and all the rest had assault rifles. The shooters did not lie about what they were seeing nor were they mistaken. Every shot followed thier rules of engagement. It is unfortunate that there were 2 kids in the van and there is the possibility that the people from the van were just trying to help some people who had just been shot but if you watch one of the people from the van was also picking up the weapons to put them in the van. I would suggest next time people watch the video before they read other peoples opinions about said videos.
War is a terrible thing and people are killed. For this reason I would not join the military unless the fight was in my own country. I don't know how you guys expect the participants in a war to behave and talk as they are killing and being killed but given the context of being in a combat zone these soldiers did nothing wrong, they did not shoot a bunch of guys with cameras, they shot a couple of guys with cameras who were with a bunch of guys with weapons, there were US troops in the area and as far as the helicopter pilots were concerned they were possibly saving the lives of thier fellow service men.
