9. I'm sure this will be unpopular
But we know next to nothing about the nature of the video. In what I'm sure will label me a freeptard, I'm not going to jump to conclusions about why they were shooting.

Having spent a year in Iraq and been in too many convoys to remember myself, we shot at vehicles that got too close to us all the time. WHY? Because it's a popular trick for insurgents to use a vehicle as a VBIED, and the ubiquitous white and orange taxicabs are the most prevelant kind. If it's proven these guys shot for the hell of it, fry them any way we can, if not, I'm not going to judge someone that did something I did when I thought my life was in danger.

P.S. Not that it matters, but the voices on the video are british, the radio voice sounds American, but the vehicle voices sound Brit.
