    The project "Wikileaks" is awesome, i wonder how long it'll last before it gets shut down.

    It was posted on here before.

    Anyway, the video is sickening, the bastards even laughed at them while shooting.

    I think it is really one of many videos of US troops having a bit of a laugh at the death and misery of others.

    Troops are trained a lot in simulators both physical simulations of enviroments and electronic simulations with state of the art GFX. Weapons are in development of the small armed flying remote control kind, think remote control toy plane with a bigger engine and an added camera and weapon setup so a person 25 miles away can attack with impunity and anonmously.

    Going back to the troops are trained in simulators, this is done to desensitise the troops to what their screens show them of whats going on. The more real life they can make the electronic simulators seem then the more like a game screen the real action will feel to the operators.

    The lack of compassion is as trained into them as the skills to aim n shoot after all you can not have an armed force feeling bad about what they do or feeling sorry for the enemy as that will just cause everyone in the force to not fight or suffer breakdowns in the field, some do suffer breakdowns in later life when the training is forgotton but the dreams still persist. I do not say any of this to excuse those actions or words in the linked clips but those soldiers shooting are merely products of a regimen of physical and mental training needed by any armed force in order to kill its percieved enemy.

    For many of them I would venture to say it is not them killing but rather the training taking control of their actions.

    I don't understand how someone could laugh at shooting people. they must somehow realize that the person they shot was a living being and that there are people who care about them who are now suffering the pain of losing that person, don't they? It's really depressing to think that people are so calloused that they could kill someone and find it something to laugh about.
