Unless you can put the activities shown into the proper context of the mission, or objectives, or earlier engagements, then I don't see how you can question whether or not it was justifiable.
We don't know if they had "finally" located the insurgent group that had taken earlier action against our troops, and now they're regrouping for another attack or what.
Arch...you have the freedom to say whatever you want. Just don't expect everybody to like it or agree with it.
Maybe it's hunting season over there, and they were just getting ready to go hunt some camels or something.
The military doesn't just fly around and wipe out groups of people for the fun of it. No matter how much they would like to. Someone, somewhere has to answer for the expended rounds, and the lives taken. That's another reason a lot of these engagements are recorded.
I honestly think a lot of people would rather not know what happens during a war, because it makes them unconmfortable, and makes them think about things that they're not used to dealing with. I personally think there should be restrictions on how much of this gets out to the public. Just let us do our jobs and stay out of it. We'll see you when we get home. IF we come home.
Oh yeah... Nice Shootin'
