I expect nothing less from those who see war in gold tinted lenses and who wish for nothing less than for the US military to conquer the whole of the Middle East either for the glory of the homeland, to help hasten the return of Jesus or to keep their Israeli controllers happy. However its still quite sickening to watch the neo-cons come out and attack WikiLeaks for showing the video of the US troops massacring civilians, reporters and young girls as “evil” as the writer of the following blog post writes:
A crowd of men surround at least two armed insurgents. The voices indicate that a Bradley and some Humvees are headed in the direction and that a recent engagement has taken place.
So, the helicopter pilot and ground controllers see armed men with a convoy approaching and taking fire and …. Wiki Leak has the nerve to call this murder?
They’ve even embedded it on a site they call “Collateral Murder.”
These people are beyond stupid, they’re evil.
Worst case scenario this is a few innocent being accidentally killed in the fog of war.
The writer a Mr Rusty Shackleford phd, who must have got his doctorate at the university of psychopathic tendencies, obviously believes that the playstation-esque massacre of a group of men who were posing no threat whatsoever to the helicopter, which can clearly be seen in the video, is well within the rules of combat.
He also sees nothing wrong with the worst part of the event by far which was when an ambulance arrives to help the sole remaining survivor of the first attack.
This is a man who is barely alive and poses no threat to anyone due to the numerous bullets already riddling his body and who is slowly dying and barely crawling along the ground trying to get to safety.
The van arrives and two men get out and try to help the injured reporter by carrying him to what they perceive to be safety i.e the back of the vehicle. All the while the blood thirsty pilots in the helicopter are itching to be given another order to fire and you can hear one pilot just begging for the near dead sole survivor to “just pick up a weapon” so that they could shoot again without requiring a further order.
When the order to fire does come from some far away camp, given by a soldier who could not know the true nature of the situation, the pilots almost come in their pants at the opportunity to once again open fire on far away figures as if it was an arcade game they were playing with their friends. The circle the building and open fire killing the remaining survivor and his two helpers as well as injuring a young girl who is in the ambulance.
Rusty obviously believes this act was well within the call of duty and a task befitting for heroes and he has no time for those who dare help their fellow injured man saying that they deserve to die.
As for those who went in to pick up the bodies? Perhaps they were innocents. I’ve no idea.
But you drive your van into an active military engagement? What the hell were you thinking?
You are stupid. Innocent, but stupid. You’re asking to be killed.
I thought the initial video was enough to ruin my day but reading what some pro-war commentators think about this act is even worse. Some people have no shame.
If you haven’t seen the massacre video yet then I suggest you hold your stomach and watch it now and then forward it on to everyone you know.
