Messed up video about the sorts of things that happen in Iraq

&list=HL1355492177&index=5

How many things like this were reported in our news when the war in Iraq was going on at full speed? I was living in Germany during much of the war and I didn't have cable television until a few months ago so I really don't know.

Geeze. And we wonder why they don't like us over there...

1. Wood

Collecting scrap wood is looting ?

I am so ashamed and embarrassed that my tax dollars pay for this vindictive destructiveness.

I guess the goal of our government and military brass is to have every country in the world hate us.

They are definitely off to a good start.

4. For the best impact, I personally recommend that you listen to some gangsta rap while watching

My favorites definitely have to be the following:

Cypress Hill - "How I Could Just Kill A Man"
Cypress Hill - "Hole in the Head"
Cypress Hill - "Hand on the Pump"
Notorious BIG - "Gimme the Loot"
Notorious BIG - "Things Done Changed"
Notorious BIG - "Ready to Die"
Notorious BIG - "Suicidal Thoughts"
NWA - "Straight outta Compton"

Listening to some of those good ol' "murder tracks" definitely puts me into a crazy mood and gets me amped up to get back into the fight. I think I say this in every one of my war posts, but it is so true. War brings out the worst in people.

6. This was on CNN at the time it happened.

It's pretty depressing. Judge, Jury, etc.

7. LOL

Trying to give commentary on a video shot over 10 years ago without knowing exactly what the situation was on the ground is fundamentally flawed. Also, if this is what makes you butthurt then you have no concept of what really happens in a war zone. This is unflattering at best but rather unremarkable compared to the atrocities visited on and by our troops and Iraq people.
