Collateral Murder

This video is one of the most disturbing accounts of emotionless barbarism I have seen. It is as if the helicopter gunners are playing the latest First Person Shooter and are completely disconnected from the acts of murder they are committing. More disturbing still is that this is apparently following the ‘rules of engagement’ and is completely legitimate. Probably the most disturbing part is the audio after the gunner is told he has just wounded two children, his response is ‘Oh well, thats what you get for bringing your kids to war’ .. Pretty hard considering they are in the middle of Baghdad and the warzone has been brought to them via the US Army. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded. For further information please visit the special project website¬†www.collateralmurder.com Thanks to http://wikileaks.org/ for the hard work decoding and distributing this account of what in my opinion constitutes a war crime.
