Cue the facepalm "not this shiat again" pics.

I guess this is us "winning the hearts and minds" of the people we are liberating.
 
2008-03-04 01:39:29 PM  
These must be the phoney soldiers.

What a bunch of awesomeness!

The puppy wasn't dead.



And yea, no point to this greenlit.

Is it true that dogs in battle theaters are supposed to be shot to lessen the danger of feral dogs attacking troops and civilians for food?
 
2008-03-04 01:40:48 PM  
Pardon whilst I yawn myself to death.
 
2008-03-04 01:40:55 PM  
Oh shiat, here we go......
 
2008-03-04 01:40:58 PM  
WHAT. THE. F*CK.

No wonder they farking hate us.

I've seen worse. Never done worse; just... observed it. Some of these backwoods hicks are pretty scary. Give them a fully automatic rifle...

// shiver
// not in a good way, either

War makes people sadistic. I always thought this was obvious.
 
2008-03-04 01:41:58 PM  
The dogs of war.
 
2008-03-04 01:42:06 PM  
Freedom isn't free.

Yep, we get to pay for it.

I guess nobody took into account the fact that out of any group of millions - or thousands - of people, there are a few bad ones.

It takes a puppy for people to see the reality of war. . . everybody clear on this now? War is bad. It's always been bad, and you only do it when you have to.

Dogs are "unclean" in Islam, like pigs, so they don't give a shiat.
 
2008-03-04 01:43:43 PM  
"at their worst" = debatable. there's far worse footage out there if you're into this kind of depressing shiat.
 
2008-03-04 01:43:57 PM  
Oh noes! Americas heroes aren't all John Wayne types!
Get rid of the video that proves it!!!!!!

Jesus, the hero worship of the military in this country is fecking scary!
 
2008-03-04 01:44:19 PM  
The puppy may have been Muslim or gay, and may have even acted friendly towards black people.

It's not as cut-and-dried as it seems.

tuxq: WHAT. THE. F*CK.

No, dogs seem to love us no matter what we do to them. I think it's just that they've been conditioned that way.
 
2008-03-04 01:44:29 PM  
I've known a few people who did this sort of thing as kids. So some of them joined up; not news.

That said, that boy ain't right.
 
2008-03-04 01:45:03 PM  
Now there what 6-7 stories on the front page showing the military committing some crimes.

Puppy throwing
Murder and acid mutiltation
Farking over Air Force 1

So far no news of the military raping a LOLcat but theres still lots of time left in the day. Probably before 7 tonight it will greenlight.
 
2008-03-04 01:45:14 PM  
Wow, this was last weeks news. Way to be up on things.
 
2008-03-04 01:45:30 PM  
Guess where most serial killers come from?

/3 guesses...
 
2008-03-04 01:45:50 PM  
Moral clarity, family values, protecting our freedoms, blah blah blah.
 
2008-03-04 01:45:52 PM  
Forget the 'ZOMG evil army dudes, we suck as a country!' shiat.

Just because the Boobieser here said the dog was dead-- clearly he has his opinion-- are you sure it was dead? I'm not, because it's a 12 second video.

It was either an extremely vile joke or a very, very cruel act by one cockless loser who, doing-- AND VIDEO-TAPING-- this stupid shiat, humiliates his unit and his country.

I can't even believe that I read this. You sir, are an asshat. A gay, Muslim puppy would have been executed by Saddam, or his followers before ever having the chance to be toughened-up by our bravest.

I once loved a woman who wasn't clean.

There are, and have always been, good and bad people in every society and every line of work, all over the world.

WTF else should we expect? It's human nature - some of us are normal, and some are f*cked up.
 
2008-03-04 01:47:03 PM  
With all the shiat-stirring some of the Farkers here regularly engage in for no other reason other than to piss people off, this should be a common sight. Except the other way around.
 
2008-03-04 01:47:13 PM  
I won't watch TFA.

But that said, from what I've heard from folks coming back from Iraq... that's got to f--k with your head. Spend day in and out not knowing if the person you're seeing in the street is going to be planting a IED on the road ahead of you later, not knowing if you're going to get ambushed when you're driving down the road, not knowing why you're there in the first place, if it's going to make a damn bit of difference, and knowing that when you get back, there will be hardly any mental health services to speak of...

... I can't even blame them for breaking. I definitely would.

/ex had pretty bad PTSD, went into a blind rage and almost killed a guy who was striking his girlfriend... so at least it was directed to a bastard who deserved it, but still...

//VA wouldn't take care of him, since the Army would only let him go with a honorable discharge... if he wanted medical discharge, they would've probably sent him back to Iraq while they took their sweet time on the paperwork... it was bad enough to send him home after they just called him back three weeks prior, but not bad enough to get a medical discharge? What the hell else would they send him home for?

///support the troops, not the bastards who put them where they are now

#1 That better be fake.

#2 Seems like it's reasonable. Intersections are good locations to attack troops.

#3 The sheep are actually dummy suicide bombers.

#4 Um, I don't know the context of the situation, but from what it seems I can't comment

#5 ??? Did they shoot the dog?

What made you think, for even a second, that these are "backwood hicks?" Was it their accents?
 
2008-03-04 01:49:40 PM  
I saw it on YouTube, it must be true! (It was also verified by Wikipedia).

Begoggle: I guess nobody took into account the fact that out of any group of millions - or thousands - of people, there are a few bad ones.

Ahh, yes, the "few bad apples" argument. There are a few here, and a few there, and a few over there, and some more there, and hey, look a few there, and don't forget the few over that way, and this few, and that few, and the few on this video, and the few in those photos, and the few on trial for this, and the few convicted of that...

Yes, yes, the few bad apples.

Always the few bad apples....couldn't be anything systemic resulting from a grueling war with no point to it.....


Yes, bad apples.

Sheep deserve to die anyway.
 
2008-03-04 01:50:26 PM  
Are there only a few of us who thinks this kind of thing should be seen by Americans?

They are our army after all, representing us as they kill the enemy and liberate other countries ('the enemy' and 'liberate' can be taken both as is and sarcastically, depending on the situation), and I for one want to know how they're doing it.

If they're the few and the proud, they all better gd be acting in a manner that is something to be proud about.
 
2008-03-04 01:50:29 PM  
For the third video someone created a youtube video by doing a screencap of a liveleak video. Fantastic.
 
2008-03-04 01:50:30 PM  
You mean that out of half-a-million people, there might be some bad apples?

Fark U: Guess where most serial killers come from?

/3 guesses...


The general populace. Look it up. Sorry to fight a troll with facts, I know I'm supposed to use a torch or a flaming sword.

/Still in the Gary Gygax thread.
 
2008-03-04 01:51:11 PM  
i'm pretty sure these aren't even in the same ballpark as the worst things american soldiers have done
