YA I got a big problem with this.
The soldier go over enter combat and kill the enemy. One leans down to take a picture of the sniper who they have been trying to get. And now they plaster it over the news as. Ruthless american soldiers killing innocent civilians.
Well I dont know if any of you have seen some of the videos of innocent civilians but I have. Not inniocent at all.
I understand there are some bad apples. This is the case in any war.
Throwing grenades at convoys once they pass by.
Shooting at soldiers while pretending to be civilians.
Listen they are all civilians right.
Well all the soldiers are and all the KIA are.
This is war people wake up.
Do you have any idea how many videos are circulating on the other side showing torture of american soldiers.
They are out there.
Of course if you posted one it would be yanked almost immediately.
Now they let this stuff threw.
One must ask themselves why.
Why is this stuff being brought forward.
It is called psy ops. Political fodder. There are many names for it.
I suspect my on gov is responsible for the release of this information. But why. I do not know.
I dont think it is a much a trophy shot but. If you had elusive enemy and then you finally get him one would most defenitly take his picture and the guy who took him down.
Please don't come on here attacking me as I am not trolling for any attacking responses. But am trying to make a point that war is war.

I don't believe for a second that those pictures are of dead civilians. I believe that they are Taliban or foreign insurgents Notice they are all male and military age. Does that make the pictures just? Not not for a second. Kinda sad actually however US troops are not murderers. That's simply a fact. Just like any organizations there are bad apples. But not entire units. It's impossible Elite troops don't murder civilians they protect them. Just my 2 cents. I would like to add that it seems Germany is back to her old historical ways I doubt she'll be in NATO much longer. Here is food for thought. could they be German troops in US uniforms? Now that seems more believable.
