The US Army has responded with a mighty blast to gun fire from the hotel killing a journalist and injuring others.
Isn't this over-reacting? I am sure those soldiers are pretty safe under the depleted uranium layer of their tank.
This is a typical example of US arrogance and show of power. Also to many civilian deaths and injuries so far.

Yeah, I thought the camera seeming a missile launcher as well. A sharpshooter could be hiding there... or not, it doesn't matter however...
...because the cameras showed the area was calm, and that the tank took *two* minutes to aim accurately, showing someone doubting about firing or not and then finally firing.
An investigation *is* required. There have been 11 periodist killed since the start of the war:
Paul Moran (Australian, ABC), Terry Lloyd (British, ITN), Kaveh Golestan (IranÌan, BBC), Michael Kelly (USA, Washington Post), Christian Liebig (German, Focus), Julio Anguita Parrado (Spanish, El Mundo), Tarek Ayub (Jordanian, Al Yazira), JosÈ Couso (Spanish, Telecinco) y Taras Protsyuk (Ukranian, Reuters), plus two more I don't know, plus kurdish interpreter Kamaran Abdurazaq Muhamed (BBC)
