WikiLeaks just got some very interesting apache video.....

If you don't know about wikileaks, you can see their page here:
http://wikileaks.org/

Basically like a clearing house of anonymous sensitive data.. Like a top secret drudge report.


Anyway, here is the video they just posted up that they some how obtained. I'm not sure what to think about it, but why journalist were hanging out with guys with RPG's is beyond me.


Apache video starts around 3 minutes, but you should see the "presentation" prior to that video.

I watched that yesterday... and I say if your a Photojournalist and you're hanging with the Baddies and they have guns and RPG's and The US Millitary is circling around you like Mosquitos in Gunships... I say you deserve whatever you get. And if you attempt to save said Baddies in your Mall-Crawling Soccer van with a load of kids, you are Stupid and also deserve to get shot the fukc up!


End Rant!

Mistake was made, and it's tragic.

But...if you're in a military occupied area with a war going on around you, probably not a good idea to be carrying a bunch of large objects around on shoulder straps, gathering in groups, and peaking around corners with a helicopter flying around. If you just watch the video from the Apaches and nothing else, it looks extremely suspicious along with the car pulling up right after trying to get the bodies and stuff they were carrying.

We will always be the villains no matter what.

Meh. Don't look like a bad guy in a war zone. The Helo's got permission to engage, and it certainly looked like they had weapons. War is brutal.

video seems pretty bias to me. if it were as bad as they say it was why no mention of what weapons were found after it was all done and over? as far as the kids, i know ive seen stories on the news and such of armed "kids" shooting at american soldiers/peacekeepers before. i would say 90% or better of everyone here would do the same thing these guys did in the same situation. just my .02

I gotta say I must be in that 10%. I don't think I would have done the same thing as those guy's did.





























I would have used the POD rockets instead of guns

Wow. Your country is a police state because the dumbest ones among you are blowing themselves up in retaliation, and you get pissy because someone points a weapon at an apache.

We should have built a 10 ft thick concrete wall around the country and started to drop IEDs into it. I think they would take care of themselves in a couple of weeks. Then we turn on the pumps and make it a big swimming pool.
