Haditha

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5033648.stm

Can scandals as this make the public (if they want to) in the US aware of the true nature of (this) war or does the military have learned its leasons from Vietnam an My Lai, so that they have the necessary control over the broadcast of news not to let such events get in the way of the usual propaganda?

Is there a true nature of this war that is different than what the American public knows?

This is not reflective of a "true nature" of the US presence in Iraq. This is reflective of a lack of military experience and expertise in handling these kinds of situations, as was My Lai. The problem is their situation and circumstances fosters this kind of distorted mentality and they just act it out- this is the root of the problem.

As for propaganda, as far as Iraq there is no such thing. The variety and diversity of viewpoints and sources of news on Iraq make it impossible to fool anybody except a bunch of hardcore-neo-con-fox-watching-bill oreilly-fanboys.

Young men + guns + extreme stress = situations like this one.

It happens in EVERY war, and is committed by troops of ALL countries. Anyone who say otherwise is either naieve or a liar.

sure, thats why you make sure you don´t start stupid wars, or make stupid reasons to go to, like freeing a country and then end up killing the people and saying it happens in all the wars.

lets resume

1) Don´t start wars that are not necessary
2) Don´t push wars on false claims (Freeedom)
3) Don´t give excuses when it blows in your face, specially considering the reason you gave to go to the war. It only makes you look more incompetent.

The story of Haditha's family is all over the ME. People talk about it even at weddings. Somehow brings back memories of what the Zionist gangs have done in Palestine 1948 to make people run for their children's lives.

Those who committed such a nauseating act should be sent to the gas chamber or even better shot in the arse.

Of course not. If this teaches anything it is that you will never ever solve anything by killing.

They shot 1-5 years old babies in the head! Close range shots! If they got away with such an act it will be a disaster! Others will ****ing follow knowing that they will get a stupid jail sentence for it!

Those who lose their ****ing minds and shot babies in the head should be vanished from the face of the earth! This is disgusting!

I do not have kids since I am not married or even engaged and I do not know if you have kids gOD but what I know for sure if anybody tried to look bad at my newphews or nieces, he is a dead dog! Anybody says otherwise is a lair.

Vamos Argentina!

First of all someone having kids or not is completely irrelevant to the judgment of this event.

Of course it's disgusting but taking revenge you put the blame on individuals. This is not a matter of individuals.

Then perhaps you shouldn't be putting men with guns under extreme stress by NOT DOING STUPID WARS FOR NO REASON. What a novel and groundbreaking concept eh?

Love is the drug, and I'm a junkie.
