Please watch this video. The Pentagon has been working to shut down Wikileaks, the site which relased this video that exposes the murder of Iraqis. This is surgical. This is freedom.
Everyday, there will be another story that works to mentally ease and soothe the idea that we need to do this to the Iranians, and that this war is really worth it.
Human value has so little value anymore. We have about 70-85 years of natural life on earth. Why do we always look for ways to destroy it? Imagine the tax payer money it took to kill these photographers. Imagine the cures, jobs, books, the computers, the health care, and the teacher salaries that could have been supported by the cost it took to carry out just this account senseless killing.
This is real. These may just be a bunch of Arabs to some, but they symbolize the future Iranians who might be wandering neighborhoods. Iran might not be much to some, but it’s home to many. I don’t pray, but I hope we don’t have war.
Here is the information associated with the video:
Wikileaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths ocurred. Wikileaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com
