    theres a disturbing video from cnn 

    thats on the web from the “war” in iraq.

    now you know that here on the busblog we dont talk about the war because of several reasons, biggest being that it is a bush-backed sham created to distract the voters that our president failed miserably in finding osama.

    and now hes failing miserably in finding sadaam, any weapons of mass destruction, or a reasonable solution to our economic woes… etc etc.

    in the disturbing video there is a wounded iraqi soldier about 20 feet away from a troop of american soldiers.

    the iraqi is on his side, faced away from the soldiers.

    the marines begin shooting at him.

    they miss twice – which is frightening and explains alot

    then they shoot him and they all cheer as he dies.

    it’s an ugly and unfair part of war that if i was a different blogger i would immediately link to on this post.

    my question to you is, is this something that you think i should be linking on the busblog?

    it is a part of the american story that we’re all telling in our little ways, but admittedly it could easilly be out of context.

    not sure how, but it could be.

    and trust me when i say that i admire anyone willing to put themselves in harms way to protect the interests of the united states of america, but i dont think that excludes me from asking why it takes three-four shots to kill a guy twenty feet in front of them who is laying still.

    maybe the person knew he was doing the wrong thing.

    feel free to discuss.
