People aren't perfect how could the troops know?

Looked like he had a RPG. 0:56 guy closest to the pole is clearly swinging an AK-47. Few more have AKs too. Only 2 guys had cameras.

Hindsight is 20/20; Van guys were trying to help and not escape with a terrorist leader. But no matter the reason. Who brings kids into a firefight?
The soldiers were clearly trying to help the girls.
I don't know, but maybe the base doc was performing a procedure. Make shift bases overseas don't have real hospitals. During my stay both Japan & Corpus Christi, Texas had full size permanent hospitals with no doctors. I saw a Japanese doctor. In Texas, we didn't see real doctors. I drove to San Antonio for a nurse practitioner. In Korea, I went to a civilian hospital for food poisoning. Thank god nothing happened to me in Thailand, China, Indonesia, Philippines etc... So anyway, I'm thinking they had 1 or 2 surgeons, 1 nurse practitioners and 50 medics most fresh from HS, boot camp & medic school. Injured soldiers are stabilized and sent to Germany &/or US for real care.

I couldn't watch ...

I couldn't even watch the whole thing. Right around three minutes in, I had to go throw up.

With a picture of a building?

With a picture of a building? ROFL, and the point of that would be what exactly? You do realize the media is anti-war right? Dominated by the left? News reported on Iraq was and continues to be slanted in your direction. So really, how can you be upset by their reporting?

Wao hold the phone, mad23...

Are you new here, Sir?

"The media is anti-war."

Please elaborate on which mainstream outlets you believe to be anti-war.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

During the Bush-era nearly

During the Bush-era nearly all of them. The media isn't so much anti-war as it is pro-Democrat. During Bush all war was evil, especially Iraq. During Obama things are a bit different. Generally-speaking though media is against war with Iran. They seem to a 50/50 on syria. The media is certainly anti-military, with calls to reduce DOD funding before anything and everything else.

Are you for a smaller government?

Because then you should be calling to reduce DOD funding before anything else. Anyone that talks about reducing government spending, and doesn't want to cut DOD spending, is talking out their ass.

Also, if you think the media is anti-war, you are not paying attention.

See here:

The most liberal outlet, MSNBC, is the most pro-war.

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants.” — Albert Camus

Of course I'm for smaller

Of course I'm for smaller government. And I do agree that DOD should be downsized. Up to me I'd slash it by about a 1/3, tons of waste in DOD. I disagree though that DOD should lose funding first. Constitutionally-speaking DOD is about the only legitimate organization we spend tax dollars on.

You are not for ANYTHING

unless YOU do something about it.

Though I may possibly be wrong, I strongly sense that you are here to cause havoc and distraction.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Okay, fair enough why you think that.

BUt let me direct your attention to this:


This is CNN"s anchor, Charles Jaco. THe man puts a Kevlar on during a "suspected" chemical attack during the first Gulf War.

THis is the reason why some of us think "pro-left" news is just the same as pro-right.

Because the MSM is theater, not journalism.

Edit: And to be fair, you didn't list any news agencies like I asked, Sir. I know you said "Most of them," but I need names. Not trying to piss you off, I just want to be exact.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

I do not have cable,

I do not have cable, intentionally, do not watch tv at all. I generally can't stomach any of the major news outlets. I'm expressing an opinion based on my general perception. I do not claim to have intensely studied all the news outlets and written a graduate paper about media bias. In what I come across I have observed a bias. Through links from Drudge, or my own surfing. Sometimes I'll go straight to the various outlets to see what the different perspective on something is. It's amazing how many different ways a single event can be reported.

I do not have anything off-hand to link to, but many a times I have seen reports talking about military this or that, and based on my experience in the military, often in the very geographic location they're discussing, and I laugh at how wildly inaccurate their reporting is. As you say, they are theater. They focus on sensationalism. They all do it.

Any kangaroo court,

Any kangaroo court, indefinite detentions, torture, solitary confinement or psy-ops for these lying bastards who killed these civilians in cold blood?
The evidence is all there.

They took pleasure and pride in dealing death to people who had done nothing to harm anyone.

Bradley Manning called the cops... and the cops f-u-c-k-e-d him.
