GarrettThank sent a link to this video of US soldiers using their tank to crush a car owned by some impoverished Iraqi citizens who allegedly stole some wood in a greedy attempt to feed their families. I'm sure the vast majority of US soldiers are excellent people, but these assholes ruin all the good will. He says:
Compared to the GIs in WWII who carried extra chocolate rations to make friends with the locals these soldiers look like punks.

David Cassel says:
Speaking of Iraq footage, here's a really cool link. Footage from Iraq shows how YouTube is giving a much better view of the reality in Iraq than the traditional news media.
Combat attacks are seen - from both sides - and towards the bottom there's some surprising hot Iraqi "action" of another sort.
