    If I was in that situation I would've done the same. I can't imagine the physiological effect of seeing your entire platoon getting blown away in the night seemingly out of nowhere. I would just toss my weapon away and throw my hands up in hope that the person behind the gun has mercy to spare me until the ground troops arrive.

    Edited:

    Or at least to give myself up to the gunner for a swift death.

    Because civilians. At 3:00 you can see a mother and child near the tents.

    About as accurate as you can get when firing a 30mm cannon from a moving vehicle a few miles away while slewing the cannon around.

    A little bit farther into the video (~3min) the pilot talks about seeing children running into some tents. It's why he waited for the second RPG guy to run out away from the tent before firing on him.

    It's nice to see that a video of soldiers who actually do care about civilians, usually the only videos I see are Collateral Murder and stuff

    Ever since one of my best friends got killed by an IED and had his body defiled and looted by these savages, I have absolutely zero feelings towards these mother fuckers.

    How is this dumb? Am I not allowed to express hatred towards the group that took my friend from me?

    Given the situation he's in, I think it was more in the line of mercy killing to limit the suffering.
    It's not like that guy will get a medic around anytime soon.

    Taliban are not protected by the Geneva conventions, as they are unlawful combatants.
    They have no formal leadership structure, do not carry their arms openly, do not honor the Geneva Convention themselves, and do not have a distinct uniform.

    I've never understood a lot of the geneva conventions regarding the current war. Some stuff is okay, some stuff is not, my dad is friends with a guy who had this knife that he brought over there from the states and they wouldn't let him carry because it violated combat rules or something. He had to keep it in a toolbox.

    While they dont care about the treaty. We do, that is what separates "civilized war" from "uncivilized war". Even if our enemies dont care about the rules of war set in place by most of the world, we will follow them. If he was still moving, he wasnt incapacitated enough.

    Yeah the Geneva Convention only applies to situations where both combatants are recognized as legal, and both sides have to agree to follow convention guidelines.

    Since the Taliban doesn't fall under the guidelines as a legal combatant, the United States doesn't have to stick to the Geneva Convention when fighting the Taliban.

    I think that was more confirmation that he did hit him and not like a "right on got that sucker" kind of thing.

    We still do follow most of it though, since our military's doctrines and codes prevent us from doing most of the stuff found in the treaty itself.
