    basically, axon is a racist and religionist bastard, who automatically thinks voicing dissent or one's loyalty to islam is automatically treasonous; Atleast that is what I am getting from him(see what one can get if you automatically jump to conclusions? ).

    As for the other concern, My father was a physician in the military from '85 - '96 and deeply loves this country. I do to; however, I believe that we should change certain laws,etc.

    voicing disgust with certain criminal laws....check
    Is Islamic....check

    therefore, I must be an anti-american terrorist.

    If you guys don't stop this little whine fest fast, I'm closing the thread. This is about the VIDEO, not who's anti-American or who's on drugs.

    My question about the video is.... where are the insurgents? I mean, you basically hear American gun fire, but no insurgent gun fire(except for that one building that the tank riddles with machine gun fire).

    Hopefully getting sent to allah, where in my opinion, they all belong.

    edit:
    The neat thing about real gunfights is that unlike in counter strike, when you get shot at, you die. When you get shot at with overwhelming fire power, you tend to not stick your head out all that much. That's where the insurgents are...getting killed or hiding.

    Anyone know about the (last I heard) 22 US casualties and under what conditions they were shot(sniper fire, or an actual fire fight)? I was under the impression a lot of the US casualties in fallujah were from snipers, but I could be wrong.

    no, you're pretty right - a lot of damage is done by solitary snipers. They even shoot civilians lined up for food and water infront of mosques.

    One wonders why they have not gotten smart and learn how to concentrate sniper fire. Must amaze them that you actually have to use tactics to have a chance of not dieing.

    Anti-war -> Nope - one of my best friends disagrees with the war
    Certain laws -> Who isn't opposed to certain laws
    Is Islamic -> If you expect axon to name the threads in which ev has said he hated America, than I expect you to produce evidence that I have ever had a problem with Islam.

    Actually, the thing that has made me consider you an poor source for information was your suggestion to stone women for not following muslim ideals (islamic women or otherwise) and your failure to see why the FBI would arrest a men selling RPG-7's capable of shooting down airliners on the black market.

    Oh give it up.

    As to the video, that's rather intense. I certainly don't envy the position those guys are in.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Isn't that kind of footage on the TV news every night?

    It is here. Including a few shaky videos of US vehicles being ambushed / destroyed.


    As to amphetamine use by the military. This is a recent incident.

    Hmmm from the news headlines I thought only the Marines were involved in Falluja but that was definatly the army. Not a bad video. Kinda weird how I can still name 3/4 of the weapon systems I saw.

    It's not the fact that they're dumbasses, we just have a good military, and as much as they try, they can't push us out.

    It's mostly marine, but also army doing the front line assault.

    edit:
    At the same site the original poster got the video from, there's a new video showing a marine executing a wounded insurgent. I'm not directly posting the link as it may be a bit too graphic to actually be allowed on this site.

    No no sean, you've got it all wrong! Come on, he's just trying to follow his rights as an American to bear arms. He really just wants to hunt deer, I don't see what the problem is!!! I mean, look at what I keep in my driveway:
