Holy crap.....That was amazing. Would it be wrong to say that it was really cool?

At least it would be if they were Taliban/Islamic Jihad Tangos.

They are enemy casualties of war. Was it "cool"? Not sure that is the right word for it but it is an awesome display of firepower and technical superiority of our military weaponry.

Please don’t misunderstand. I completely support our troops and our mission in Iraq. I know I wasn’t there and I’m only seeing one very narrow viewpoint but, didn’t that look like we just fired on some farmers. I didn’t see any weapons. I did see a cultivated field, a tractor and a couple of trucks.

Anyway not looking to stir up a hornets nest…just looking for your view points

I think the U.S ARMY has better things to do than pick on farmers....It looked like some sort of Mortar or small piece of Artillery that they were trying to use??

Anyone else see that???

I don't know if the information in an email I received concerning the footage is legit but here is an explanation I got;


Friends,

In regards to the little video clip I sent you showing the helicopter
attacking some Iraqi's, here is an explanation of what happened from a
soldier stationed in Iraq. A friend sent it to him, and he e-mailed her
back with this...

The video footage that you sent me was taken here in the Tikrit area. We
were shown it the day after it happened. There was a little more to it
than what was shown in the video you sent me. I think it was classified, so
either it leaked out or was declassed, I highly doubt the latter.... But
here's the synopsis on what occurred: Three insurgents were sitting on
the side of a freeway that US convoys frequent, in the cover of night,
waiting to bury an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) that would later be command detonated and kill unsuspecting US soldiers as they drive by. Well, that AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter, was hovering over 2 KMs away (1.2 miles
observing the enemy's activity with Thermal (heat) vision. The enemy
could not hear the helicopter and had no idea that they were watching. Every
time a car/Humvee would approach, the insurgents would carry their explosives
out into that field, drop it, and run back acting as if their truck broke
down; their typical tactics. When the coast was clear, they would run back out
into the field to get the explosives. Finally, the Apache pilot/gunner
was give authorization to destroy the target. Good job to our Army aviators!
For those of you who don't know what was fired, it was an M230, 30mm
chain gun. As we could all see, it was extremely effective.
