War isn't fair. You may think there is a rule book, truth is each man writes his own. Some get to come home some don't have a home in the end. All you little punks need to write the USMC a thank letter for all the lives the fine men in it's rank gave though out history. Don't bite the hand that feeds you your freedom!

Here's a pic for all you punks to whine about (maybe he was just driving a school bus, or not)

no i wont.
personally i respect the USMC they are an elite fighting force,worthy of being called marines. BUT these men did something wrong and that cant go unrecognised. You cant cloud over the crimes of the guilty with the acts of the good.

How was that Iraqi soldier a threat to them? He couldn't even lift his body off the ground he was so badly wounded. At this stage arn't those marines required to render aid to him? As he is badly wounded and no longer a threat.

By the way, are all Marines that much of a lousy shot? How many rounds did it take before one hit him? Or were they cheering because they finally hit their target?

Recently a US officer was charged with homocide. When US soldiers at a checkpoint fired a volley of shots into a car driving towards them, he walked up to the car and fired his pistol into the badly wounded driver, killing him. the officer used the excuse that he was putting him out of his misery, which also goes against the "render aid to the wounded" rule.

If you would of read, two men aimed WEAPONS at the soldiers. As in the video, you can see a gun on the side of him. He was armed and dangerous.

Also, We lost 8 Marines to a faked surrender during Iraqi Freedom. You can see that that Iraqi has a weapon on the ground beside him. Not worth the trouble.

1.he wasnt reaching for the gun.
2.he was in pain he was crawling away ,that is not a threat.
3.those marines were obligated to help him,they are there as enforce's and peacekeepers not some kind of vigilante group.

Sorry Laxpla, but if you're definition of "armed and dangerous" is a badly wounded soldier barely able to support himself on an elbow with a weapon on the ground behind him, then I'd say you were a bit paranoid.

I footage is there for us to see.

How has most of our troops died from? Bombs, What happens if that guy is about to pull a bomb on his chest? No one knows what would of happened.

if he was wearing a bomb then he would of pretened to be dead then wait till they got close not try and get back up.
look i can understand why they done it but come on thats just a bad call

In Iraq then, you might as well shoot wounded civilians because they might have bombs strapped to their chests.


Guys he was disarmed, He was no threat. The best case scenario they could do is leave him there until the area is secured, then issue medical aid.

I wonder what you guys would think if it was an american soldiers lying on the ground and iraqi's fireing bullets at him. Lets see if we have the same response from you who see it as justified.

How do you know the Iraqi didnt have a hand gun, bomb, a partner behind the bunker. It also took him out of his pain. Say if you were fighting for your life, knowing any second you could not be seeing your family and friends again, would you take the chance? I sure hell wouldn't.

Maby your tactics, but I care about human life. Sick you would risk a life and take a chance to prision a enemy of war. I don't know about your country, but America cares about our men's safety.

Couldn't you apply that same logic to the man in video? He risked going up against the military and lost.

That cheering you heard was the same kind of cheering you'd expect to hear from gang bangers as they drive by a shoot an innocent person walking down the sidewalk. They took out someone who at that point was defenseless and they got off on it like a bunch of animals. No different than the same kind of thrill the Iraqi criminals got when they behead a captor.

No, we both agree on this point. I really would like to see the entire video or comments from the reporter/soldiers that were there. There are too many, both pro-war and anti-war, that manipulate every comment, photo, video, etc. to make their point.

Any killing that violates the Geneva Convention ought to be punished. Too bad the insurgents won't be held to that same standard.

the Iraqi took the chance to kill marines and he paid for it I don't feel sorry at all for him if he was wounded or not he tries to kill marines and they should go there and help him why should they heck if it was me I would have emptied the whole clip on him plus people who dress like civilians and run around beheading people don't apply to the Geneva rules they are terrorists who deserve to be shot and killed.
