Is that what war is supposed to be?

I came up with a really shocking video from the war in Irak.

It’s some video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007 showing American soldiers brutally massacring Iraqi civilians and Reuters journalists.

The soldiers mistake (or they just can’t be bothered to check?) some photographers for Iraqui insurgents carrying weapons (you’ll have to wait 5 min to get to the shooting bit in the video). It’s so outrageous! It looks like a video game but it’s real life. It scares me to death.

Code Pink is campaigning to let people know about this kind of things. The army shouldn’t get away with murder.

Here you can watch the video.

You can also read more information in Spanish clicking here.

Here is also a video showing a testimony of a repented soldier which tells what war trully is. Something encouraging for a change!

This is part of what he says:

Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it’s profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us
– Mike Prysner
