"Collateral Murder" = BS

Bill Roggio and others make a few points about the viral video "Collateral Murder". Not much point in joining in the effort, although I note that if the group behind its dissemination wants to really do reports on "collateral murders" then they ought to be pumping out the videos on al Qaeda and other terrorist bomb attacks in market places, public squares and subway stations. See,for example, At least 7 blasts rip through Baghdad, killing 49 :
At least seven bombs ripped through apartment buildings across Baghdad Tuesday and another struck a market, killing 49 people and wounding more than 160, authorities said.

The explosions were the latest in a five-day spree of attacks in and around the capital that have killed at least 119 people.

In other words, there are thousands hundreds of innocents being murdered every single day by terrorists and we see this video in which a group of men, some clearly armed, get taken out as a convoy approaches?

Give me a break.

  1. Dear Anon:

    Nice comment. I choose not to publish such an silly response to this post.

    FYI,I did not spend all my time in the reserves. I have seen more of the third world than you can imagine, and I've seen guns carried in many ways.

    Under the circumstances, my response would have been been exactly that of the helicopter crews.

    Your idea of "peace" is immature and naive, and I doubt my death, which you wished for, will cause mankind to be any more peaceful since man has been in a state of war long before I arrived on scene.

    Now, tell me about the point of the post, which was that videos of the damage wrought by suicide bombers in the crowded markets of the world, or in a Bali bar, or wherever, don't get the sort of condemnation with the attitude that WikiLeak used in revealing their video. And see if you can engage your brain.
