As awful as this is, it's nothing new. It's a widely known fact that your average American squaddie can't even tell the difference between an insurgent and a dog, let alone news reporters with cameras.
You're a moron to shorten up the lengthy paragraph I was typing up.
The only thing I don't get is why the American military haven't acknowledged that their soldiers need better binocular / long range viewing equipment (or at least, better training on how to spot weapons at a distance) so they stop shooting people randomly.
Because we don't have the money/the right advisors/enough support from the inside to do that. And if you REALLY wanted to bet your life on every little thing in the middle of a warzone then maybe you should sign up if you're going to be that confident.
No one can be completely sure of what's on the ground. Those soldiers had more than enough reason to fire on those targets, because with the training and technology available to them they did all that they could to protect themselves and others.
Read my other posts in this thread, the same goes for all the other trolls that are HURR DURR WAR IZT TERRIBLE ARMY IS DOGPIG.
