Here is a short 6 minute video report from Democracy Now! you can watch or read, showing U.S. soldiers in Iraq firing from a helicopter, during which they killed at least three unarmed persons, including two reporters and a father (with children in the back seat injured).
I’ve also included link to a longer report on this incident, which includes an interview with a soldier in this unit (no present on that day of combat) that says this is simply how soldiers are trained, and if it’s a problem, it’s part of a much bigger problem.
If you have some time, take a look to watch or read these reports and see what you think. What are we doing wrong? What needs to change? Is there something in the military culture, or maybe something even in our culture as a whole, that makes these kinds of things happen?
