    I know, I guess I find a certain amount of irony in this. That's all.

    Who were the people getting killed? That's pretty worrying...

    I'm assuming they were insurgents... I don't think that they'd be allowed to fire on a mob like that without good intel from the ground. And that intel would be pretty simple during a complete curfew of the city:

    "Break: God's Thunder, this is Desert Rat"
    "Send it, Rat"
    "Roger, Thunder, I have eyes on a group of approx 75 armed individuals directly below your position, over"
    "Roger, Rat. Wait one"
    "Rat, this is Thunder, we also have eyes on and will engage. Ensure you are not danger close, over"
    "Roger wilco, thunder. Desert Rat out"

    The story (that I can't seem to find now) along with the video was that they were aware of a gathering of insurgents at a nearby house. They were preparing to respond to coaltion actions nearby. The group had apparently left their meeting place and....

    Suddenly it becomes a bit easier to understand how the United States military makes a mistake and kills 50 innocent people.

    but they WERE innocent..... I mean, they hadn't killed anyone YET!

    I wasnt able to tell what they were carrying, It was hard to make out any detail at all. Did the story that went with the movie say they had that , or are you seeing something I didnt? I hope they werent just a mob of people, I doubt they were, if they were that is terrible. It probably went how Cing is saying though, otherwise if nothing else it would be a propaganda and marketing nightmare.

    I think the optics they use are considerably better than a compressed, internet-delivered mpg reveals. The military would have to be pretty stupid to release a video of their killing a bunch of dudes walking down the street minding their own business.

    Normally a chopper won't just fly around looking for mobs of people to shoot up. They will have spotters on the ground, or other air assets, telling them who is who. From what I've read we've got a small Army of Iraqi's who are more than willing to provide that kind of intel.
