    So sad that we are behaving in such a manner over their. I wonder if the cameras weren't there whether they would have executed the "looters".

    all for 10-15 sticks on the top of an suv
    and I bet they "stole" the wood because we knocked out their power and thus they had no other way to cook

    I see boys and their toys.

    There's a time and a place for such things.

    And I don't care what uniform you wear or who you serve, you deserve to get your **** pushed in when you do this sort of thing. Were it my car, I'd have killed the bastards. Honest.

    US army guys taking a tank and running over a suspected looters car. Destroying the car completely with an M1-A1. Because they were looting WOOD! For real Wood. Come to find out it was a taxi that the guy owned for his business.

    Seems like this happened early on, I wonder if anything happened after their CO's got wind of it. Believe it or not sometimes soldiers do dumb things and do get in trouble for it, although this seems to extend beyond dumb...

    oh, as for the "Boys and their toys" comment, can we say sexist?
