Topic: Antiamerican guys sent this to me.


Would you please share some thoughts about this ? Is it a real video from a plane? Any thought is appreciated. Thank you.

Looks fairly real, though the explosion looks a bit weird especially the way the film completely blacks out and the image is not zoomed out.

Let's assume for a moment this is real even though I have my doubts.

What's the point? I don't get it. A platoon of millitia is moving through the streets and they are hit with a bomb. Sounds exactly like what I would want my millitary to do.

A quick look through the website led me to an entire section dedicated to how 9/11 is a CIA plot all along to lead america into war with the middle east.

But I must be one of those conformist propoganda-sucking clonetroopers because the banner in the upper righthand side tells me so. Remember, you're only a free thinker if you hold their opinion.

EDIT:
Alright, game time. Can you tell which headline is from theonion.com and which is from the above site?

"Per Last Request, Gen. Westmoreland's Ashes, 10,000 Pounds Of Napalm Scattered Over Vietnam"
"Former DEA Agent: Mexican Commandos Killing In South West US To Protect Bush Drug Cartel"

That's just sad.

Let me crystal clear for all of you who have never been to Iraq or never controlled attack helicopters.

The military does not allow helicopters to openly engage targets on the ground. The chopper needs to be in contact with someone on the ground. That person on the ground has a much better view than from the air. As we all can tell, you cannot see on that video other than a few blurs that count as people. The procedures in the army never give the aircraft the right to pull the trigger without permission from the ground. In this case, I bet your that there was someone on the ground with eyes on target who knows more than you, me or that anti war website.

You can challenge me all you want. But unless you have been to Iraq and/or controlled attack aviation, you have no merit in my eyes.

Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes. It is BS like what is on the website that really makes me mad, just as people who make assumptions on something they know nothing about.

Thank you guys.
Doody, that's exactly what I was looking for. Some opinion from someone who knew more than me or those people on the antiwar website.
They just come up showing you a video where no contextualization is made and where they would have you believe US choppers take fun in hitting innocent crowds on the ground.

To a non-military person like myself the film does look like it could of been real. To me it looked like the video was real but with possibly the people and explosion have been added later. I hate websites like that one too, the British, American, Australian... militaries in iraq are doing an excellent job. Sorry if my comment offended you

Is it a plane or is it a Helicopter, watching the way the picture stayed steady so long makes me thinks it is the later. Now if they were a group of insurgents which they could have been whats the problem. Now there was a comment over the remarks that were passed by some one on this aircraft/Helicopter. Well what are they moaning about I have seen the remarks and cheering when they have cut off peoples heads, or when an allied soldier get killed. It just some thing to try and stir up the some people. Now we don't know if the this tape has been doctored or not but the one thing that did strike me was the lack of any back ground noise.

As far as that site goes, it also claims that Princess Diana and Hunter S. Thompson were victims of "political murders."

I received this in an email about two or three months ago and it was a safe house with a special ops group to flush them out. They didn't know anything was targeting them because the scene is shot with a FLIR which is guiding a Paveway II dropped from 20,000 ft high. The guidance FLIR was probably a SEAL from a small aircraft. The laser pulses at a secret pattern known only to the pilot and target illuminator. There was no guesswork here. Face it, only bad guys went out in this one.
