i was expecting much worse. No harm, a kid ran 1/4 mile. Big freaking deal. Not nice to make the kid run, then again the kid didnt HAVE to run, and the trooper didnt have to give away HIS PERSONAL water :miff: Its not like they booted a kid in the ass. Get a grip on reality Sova this is nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Heres a sad sad story of an abused boy named Jamie. Many many days in row he was forced to run over one mile by a man with a whistle .... and he was given no water.



get to playing.

And I tend to agree.

ok, those dudes are scumbags. Do you think that this is a good way to promote relations between Iraqis and U.S. Soldiers? "Hey look at how those soldiers are treating our kids?"

They (the Iraqis) appear to be pretty resilient.

They get over the trauma of IEDs being detonated in their neighborhoods, and ongoing Shiite/Sunni/Kurd feuding/killings/reprisals/kidnappings.

I think they see this as pretty small potatoes.

That statment could be said the same for the Britians during WWII when they would hear the air raid sirens and just sit there not worrying anylonger if a German bomb would explode on top of them or not. I can't think of the word but it's something like dehorrified . . . since they see it happening all the time and just get use to it even though it still is a horrible scene.

Actually that's not how they saw it. My grandmother was over there during that time and they would hear the sirens, and they would hear the rockets comming. She said as long as you still heard the rocket motor then you were ok...if the sound of the rocket motor stopped, then they would run. You didn't know where the bombs were going to fall and late in the war the bombs could penatrate the bomb shelters. There was no point in running, there was no place safe to go. When they heard the rockets, the whole place would go silent...listening for the motor to stop.

I can't even fathom living like that.

scumbags? They were giving away great purified water to poor little iraqi hood rat kids. If the kid didnt want the water badly he would not have run for it. It was obviously worth the small run. Grandman or someone who grew up in the olden days can attest to how pan handlers used to work for their food or money. They did a dance for you like in the song mr. bojangles. Its not his job to feed iraqi's so in my opinion he is a humanitarian at best and at worst a little bored with an odd sense of humor. Scumbags? Your a real piece of work Sova. Do us all a favor and pack for canada. Please change your location so i can add that town to my "never go to list"

that isn't a good comparison, unless the IEDs are being set by U.S. soldiers.

Default I don't get it.

Our soldiers are over there everyday with people constantly trying to kill them. And when somebody does something that we don't agree with they are horrible. If yoiu had somebody wanting to kill you 24/7 see how you would act, I don't think you would be over there acting like Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. The media never covers the bullshit the enemy does, they just want to make our troops look bad. I do not agree with the war but I do support our troops. If you are not willing to fight for our country shut up or get out. Bitch about the people that started the war( BUSH) not about the people fighting it.

so, when you have people constantly trying to kill you, you wave around a bottle of water to thirsty children and laugh like an idiot? ok. I guess i've never been in that situation. I just think these two are making soldiers everywhere look bad. They are buffoons.
