    "Pretty sad"? what are you talking about?

    Those guys are lucky they werent lined up behind and in front of the car.

    Hate to break it to you, but this is war. Destroying a stupid car that wasnt worth crap anyway is no big deal.

    War is not pretty.

    So, what would have happened to the looters in the Saddam-era?

    see, were trying to justify why we are out there and trying to get support from as many countries as possible. And, the world is watching. They are supposed to be mature, not little kids with a new toy.

    i'm pro army. i'm a veteran. but the conduct of those tankers is deplorable. especially shooting at the car gangsta style prior to driving over it with the tank. all that really did is show that americans are bullies with big weapons.

    Cry babies like you two are literally prolonging the war and jeopardizing our troops. Actions like those taken on the tape send very simple signals: Don't screw with Americans.

    Trailmaster. Sorry to break it to you, but this is exactly how the US is portrayed overseas by our enemies all the time. In this case, we played into their hands and did their job for them. This clip shows little of looting, only woood on a car. However, it destroyed this persons livelihood. Seems to me these soldiers acted as judge and jury. Where is the example of due process that we say we want to give to these people? Did their Commander say to do this? As far as Doug in Co goes, Shove it up your a--! I spent 20 yrs in the service. Liberal, not even close. I believe in many things, one of them is justice. This is not even remotely portrayed by the video. So unless you can show me more, I remain unconvinced. Nice thing about this country is no one prevents you from opening your mouth and inserting your foot.;?

    yeah, that's a great message. So you want our troops acting like asses on tape. Like KB4IFS said, we are trying to show these people how to live like the way we do(voting,justice system). With fine examples like the clip shows, It looks like they may prolong their own stay.

    The lesson being taught in the video was done on the ground to the people who were looting. I'm sure they got the message. You can't expect the full context of the lesson to be spoon fed to you by the video because, assuming it is legit (it sounds like the guy who does the narration for Frontline), it was prepared by leftists who hate America, specifically to deceive the simple amoung us. Of course, they are going to show whatever seconds of the event that make the US look the worst. Personally, even what they showed was encouraging to me.

    It's sort of like the anecdote I got from a friend who watched one of our snipers interviewed lately. Apparently, they make a sport of gut shooting the Iraqis so that they'll scream a while and bum out their friends before they're finally put down. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of a-holes.

    You sound like a pretty good target for this kind of sport.

    Just like KB4IFS said, they are not the judge and jury. If they had to wait longer to get confirmation on what they were supposed to do, then they should have waited. Not act like a bunch of 13 year olds.

    That's exactly what the video shows us as being--bullies.

    And you can't compare sniper tactics to retards with a tank. Why, did the sniper see a looter stealing wood or something else of value---no. If he shot, he had a damn good reason to. They have to justify every shot. Plus they are trained not to make bad decisions.

    How do we know that this isn't staged?

    What is the evidence this happened and Moveon.org or the kerry campaign didn't HAVE this created by sympethetic soldiers or actors somewhere?
