153. If this was another country
for example, The Netherlands, who fired on US civilians from a helicopter because they 'appeared to be armed'(despite the fact they they were neither firing nor preparing to take defensive positions in order to fire in the presence of attack helicopters) you would not be so quick to say, "Well, war is hell." as you lay bleeding on the sidewalk clutching your camera.

I don't know if this will do anything for your thinking, but it's worth a shot: I watched this video with my brother who just last night returned for two weeks from Afghanistan, where he is a Ranger in the 82nd Airborne, and he was pissed at the actions of these pilots. He said, and I quote "fucking rednecks."
