A motive for hatred!

Thanks to wikileaks.org these videos have been made public.  Now bare in mind that this is real footage.  Reuters says this:

“The newly released video of the Baghdad attacks was recorded on one of two Apache helicopters hunting for insurgents on 12 July 2007,” reports the Guardian. “Among the dead were a 22-year-old Reuters photographer, Namir Noor-Eldeen, and his driver, Saeed Chmagh, 40. The Pentagon blocked an attempt by Reuters to obtain the video through a freedom of information request. Wikileaks director Julian Assange said his organisation had to break through encryption by the military to view it.”

The release of these videos come on the heals of news of U.S. Special Forces botching and trying to cover-up their mistake.  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/afghanistan/article7087637.ece

Watch as the soldiers in the Apache helic0pters gun down civilians in the streets of Baghdad.

Another clip as a soldier throws a puppy as a cliff.

The men were later reprimanded for their conduct: http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/06/12/marine.puppy/index.html

Or what about British soldiers in 2007 beating Iraqi children?

One can only speculate what would cause “liberators” to do such things as this.  Or as Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC said, “only a small percentage will ever see combat and the rest of us are just cowards.”   To read the full article, click here:  http://www.prisonplanet.com/neo-cons-defend-massacre-of-iraqi-journalists-children.html

    Even if every single US soldier was on his best behavior every second of the day, helping little old ladies across the street and feeding orphans lobster, they would still hate us with a passion. We are still foreign infidel invaders occupying their country and there is nothing at all we can do to change that perception (which is, if you open your eyes, a reality). Ask the Greeks a thousand years ago. Ask the English in 1850. Ask the Russians in 1984. History shows again and again that you will never be welcomed in Afgahnistan unless you are Afghan, and especially not if you are are white and worship a different god. The point being, don’t listen to Fox news, the Afghans don’t hate us just becuase we shoot civilians and toss puppies, they hate us because we are in their country in the first place. To say that the actions of our troops are the root cause of the violence in those areas is forgetting history again, and that always leads to disaster.
