Geez, sorry if the coalition forces (which were the target of a car bomb recently) don't blow up balloons and bake a cake for unannounced guests. Commend the soldiers for not killing the retards. In a hostile environment with a bunch of people around you who employ tactics like carbombings how dare anyone criticize soldiers for freaking out. If it's true that they broke this guy's ribs after knowing he was just a journalist, then yes, that would be overdoing it. But hey buddy, they could've just shot em. If "enquiring minds want to know" is your motto, don't whine when it blows up in your face.
