61. Newsflash: in many cases they ARE shooting anything that moves
There have been MANY credible reports of US troops blasting the hell out of cars and vans of civilians at road checkpoints, or shooting randomly immediately following a roadside bombing. There is no debate that many civilians have been killed in this manner. Having said that, I don't blame the troops for this, nor would I spit on them when they return. They are reacting to the situation our current administration put them in. They are shot at and bombed every day, and are SCARED OUT OF THEIR #@%$#%#@ MINDS!!! I'd be shooting anything that moves were I in the same situation purely for self-preservation. I don't care how good your training is, when the shit hits the fan a lot of that training means jack.
