    I heard that. It would've been a real serious shitstorm if they had went like "oh hey, stuff that looks like guns. Better not tell the base, we can't have any fun. RAT-TAT-TAT-TAT-TA!"
    "haha, good kill!"
    This would have been even more fucked if they would have just opened fire without clearance. It would have been all over the news by now.

    You can't shoot down an Apache that's at that distance with an RPG unless you were the luckiest mother fucker in Baghdad.

    RPG-7s are designed for tanks and low flying aircraft. An Apache flying doing what these guys are doing now would be well out of the effective attack range for an RPG-7, Even if you just lobed a round in hopes you hit the helicopter, you would have just about the same chance as shooting a bullet in the air and hitting General Petraeus as hes doing a speech at camp Anaconda. And I highly doubt your average group of insurgents goes around brandishing a Stinger missile system, which would be easily visible being carried by a guy.

    The simple fact of a man having an RPG, and you are in a helicopter that can be damaged from the RPG, even though you are well out of the way of it's effective range does not give you clearance to attack.
    There's still a chanse you might get hit by that lucky shot and you don't fucking want that. You don't want any missiles going airbourne doing what every they want, exploding whenever they want sending sharpnel wherever it wants.

    rockets are explodey little brats. You don't want explosions.

    And yes, a chopper is an low-flying aircraft.

    So what you say is you rather want 50k soldiers to die from your country than 50k civilians from some random country you don't give a crap about?

    That's a nice spirit.

    Give me a fuckin break. First off, taliban did not declare war on the us, they were just doing their own thing in afghanistan (they were only suppressing and fuckin up afghanis). Second, the whole al-quaede is bullshit and product of US. Do you honestly think a 747 hit pentagon? Do you honestly think a bunch of cave dwellers in afghanistan planned all that shit?

    Also, fun fact: Osama bin laden was an ex-cia agent who did fuck load of missions for US during the afghan-soviet war...
    I live in D.C. I stood at the fucking wreckage and prayed with my family, pastor, and various people from my church. And you must be really fucking ignorant if you think they are a bunch of fucking retards sitting in caves pissing themselves and playing boggle. And did osama bin laden also create an evil ray gun?

    Quit the QQ everyone. So what? Some kids died? Omg, let's look at haiti.. Let's look at every fucking where on the planet, EVERYONE IS DIEING. It's war, and they deserve it.
    Don't be that guy, really don't.

    They're kids they didn't deserve shit.

    And I bet most of the people killed didn't either.

    Be real. There's tons of reporters in Iraq.
    Reporters should get an IR belt that lights them up like a christmas tree on IR cameras. Though they would be highly exploitable. IE, insurgents killing reporters just for the belts so Apaches don't engage them. But It's not like the IR things on the tops of coalition vehicles stopped the A-10s from fucking over that group of Brits, so I don't know.

    it doesn't, because as you can see in the video, they don't query for any press activity in the area



    english is the only language of the civilized world you should prob just drop the other ones

    also RPGs don't just explode in the air for no reason sending shrapnel everywhere this isn't a videogame
    They do. [quote=wiki]The grenade is stabilized by two sets of fins that deploy in-flight: one large set on the stabilizer pipe to maintain direction and a smaller front set to induce rotation. The grenade can fly up to 1,100 meters; the fuze sets the maximum range, usually 920 meters.[quote]
    They self-destruct after distance of 500-1000m.

    And go to hell, you're saying that I should drop the language that is in a way my national identity that our nation has fought centuries against russians and germans to keep it alive just for some piece of shit english?

    So essentially from your post and others in this thread:

    Soldiers are tired and fucking hate everyone that isn't in the army. They can't see properly in their cameras and it's better them than us. If you want to look at it like that, every carried remotely cylindrical object is grounds for lethal force.

    That's just fucked up.

    You can't fire on someone just because they have an RPG. You always need clearance. Which they had so good for them.

    Did I quote you? I basically aggregated all the hollow justifications people supporting this video have put forward in this thread. Some where yours some weren't.

    Define "bad". Apparently, blowing up civilians, journalists and kids with a Apache is not deemed to be bad anymore.
