Yet another example of man's inhumanity to man.That is an example of collateral damage in war.Protection detail or just a vicious bastard.I don't know.I haven't been trained in Iraqi urban tactics and I wouldn't be a contractor.That was ugly.

its still propaganda... trying to make a contractor of the US look like the bad guy.... Its a dirty job, someone has to do it.
It is only propaganda from your perspective. I see it as criminal behavior. Is my assessment untrue?

And, by the way, NO. No one "has to do it"! This is nothing that anyone "Has to do"!

No, I believe that what I stated is demonstrable. If you watch the videos without the inclination that the US and it's subsidiaries and contractors can do no wrong, you'll be likely to see and hear the same thing.

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. At least I'm erring on the side of humanity and humility.

You're so obviously delusional. I guess we can now say that as long as someone is dressed in a burka or hoodie, they are up to no good.
You're pathetic. Keep playing your what if game. I'm starting to believe that you're on the side of the men in the SUV because they're most likely of a lighter-skinned ethnicity.


I see something totally different
Some people are seeing what they are told
they are suppose to see from that talking
head. THINK people.. That video is only trying
to rouse people when they have no facts on it
except the person telling them what there *suppose* to know..
Get past this and obove the propaganda.


Agreed Pop... There are NO facts on this, at all.. this is just spewed out propaganda... There is obviously an agenda based on the Youtubers profile too (check that out)

No one wants to date the butcher, but everyone wants steak... It's really sad

You're right, they didn't roll over her. But they hit her and just left her at the side of the road to potentially die.

The fact you're pathetically attempting to justify their actions is sad and shameful.



I'm just saying that video fasly portrays something
that is not there. Like 3-4 cars ran over the lady*
for fun which DID NOT happen. NO ONE ran or
rolled her* over who's the liars? Not me!

Right back at you.

You know what I see? I see something that can happen on the streets of America. So, when Blackwater comes to your town and does a hit and run on your mother, sister, etc., are you going to rationalize it the same way you are here? Don't forget how the officers who murdered citizens in the streets after Katrina are now convicted and going to serve hard time.

In that respect I would agree with you.

But what they did was still wrong.

Care to explain what fallasies the video portrays? Where did you get 3-4 cars running over a lady for fun?

Like I said, I guess using the description, "getting run over", is too complicated for some people. Think of it more as a criminal hit and run, which is exactly what it looks like. There may be reasons for these actions but I think the video shows what actually did happen.

Well not to defend anyone,but you should really think about what people are dealing with in Iraq.


Officials in Iraq say 33 people were killed when a suicide bomber detonated a car packed with explosives near a funeral procession in south-east Baghdad.


www.guardian.co.uk...


A suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into a police building in the southern Iraqi city of Basra on Monday, killing four people, officials said


www.cbc.ca...


BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide truck driver detonated a ton of explosives near a police headquarters in the northern city of Mosul on Friday, killing five American soldiers in the deadliest attack against U.S. troops in more than a year.


www.usatoday.com...

I take it that some of you didn't notice the concern in the voices of the occupants in the vehicle that was filming this.It seems this person did not pay attention to the vehicles that were approaching where as everyone else around this person did.I say person because we do not know the gender of said person. Again I am not defending them but to say they ran this person over is a bit of a stretch.

Lastly their was an increase in women being used as suicide bombers...


Suicide attacks in Iraq are increasingly conducted by women, who can more easily pass through checkpoints without being searched. Typically clad conservatively from head to toe, women are rarely stopped and even more rarely subjected to body searches, because it is considered improper in Muslim culture for a male to scrutinize (much less pat down) a woman. Terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda in Iraq are now exploiting this fact to evade security measures.

Again not defending just pointing out what these people have to deal with on a daily basis..

OK, so just because things are that way in certain parts of Iraq, does this mean that I can travel into Camden, NJ and start driving around waving my gun at pedestrians and doing hit and runs?

As I've already stated, suicide bombers go for stationary targets, not moving vehicles driving fast down the crowded Iraqi highways. Please, provide an article where a suicide bomber walked into traffic and blew up US troops/contractors/Iraqi civilians. Yes, these men in a foreign land who are definitely targets does, they are under pressure (although they seem to be having a grand old time), but that doesn't give them the right to drive like maniacs, hit Iraqi civilians cars and their women. Being at "war" does not give private contractors the right to be above the law as they act like mad men.

Also, unless we all don't have our volume on, we did in fact hear the men in the 2nd video watch the woman get hit and remark on it. That said, for men who showed "compassion", that compassion ended when they drove on by her as she lay motionless

those darned Iraqis!
you do remember the SAS soldiers that were busted dressed as Iraqis and laying bombs?

somehow I suspect if Iraq was never invaded in order to steal everything then this stuff would not be happening...there...

Ps

and soon too....

No, it has nothing to do with bombs vs. drug gangs.
It has to do with respecting people whether you're in their land or yours.

I hope these scumbags in the SUVs are found and tried for their actions.

If they're that scared of suicide bombers that they believe there is one on every street corner, they need to be taken out of servicce. They are not mentally fit and are unable to conduct themselves in a rational manner.

Thats your opinion and you are entitled too it... I'm pretty sure after reading your posts I have more real world experience in this area than you... And frankly... There's three sides to every story... And the truth will never be told about this...

And as for respecting people, take some of your own advice and give these guys some for doing the dirty work other "people" dont want to do... The stuff these mercs have to go through, no wonder they are a little off....

I'll agree with you on the part that these guys are doing dirty work that I wouldn't want to do. There's no way I ever want to be so desensitized that I won't stop to help someone in the road. I certianly would never drive around pointing a gun and driving like a maniac as though I should be feared.

I know criminal activity when I see it. Just because these guys are allowed to run amuck doesn't mean they have the right to wave weapins around and clip people with their vehicles just because they were there when they passed by.

No one said anyone got run over in the first video, just you. I can't believe you watched this video and are defending the Black Water folks. It looks like I will continue to disagree with everything you say and stand for.

I am not defending anyone
but when any stopped car
or women next to the road could
be armed with a bomb ready to kill you..
Things get hectic. The video is blatant anti-american
propaganda all i'm saying.


Yes! hitting women with cars is ok. Nothing to see here.

Does anyone see tha insanity here?

I know. We keep working to reinforce this ideal. If we aren't peeing on dead bodies or shooting up villages, we're driving around waving assault rifles and doing hit and runs.
Isn't it great to be a terrorist? Er... I mean, patriot?
