some videoes by some men in military, are disturbing
there r many videoes in the internet that contains scenes like shooting and yelling, are disturbing, they didnt make American soldiers look good.
especially those about killing civilians, or shooting at dead bodies.
even though i know some of the videoes mean no harm or no bad things happen in it, they may be edited and used by al-qaeda.
im not American, from my perspective, i think if sb wants to win the "war on terror", displine must be tight. no combat videoes should leak (although many people like to see them, including me). im Chinese and i think i know how communist guerilla developed into massive regular army and won in the civil war --- extreme disipline and massive propaganda.
the videoes are just, disturbing for most people, maybe not Americans, but all around me, so think about what will happen if Islamic people see those videoes, especially young teens.
if im in al qaeda , i dont even need to make videoes to spark the hatred but using the videoes made by Americans themselves, eg like this one in youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldDETVaKiQw
grunts inside are brave, and impressive show of CQB tactics which are violent, sharp and basically just nice.
however the shots at the dead bodies(maybe insurgents, maybe not, but no weapons nearby,at least they should put a weapon near him) in the video, might be necessary to secure the area in case he wasnt dead. but i dont think everyone else will think what i was thinking, they may simply consider them bastards, animals etc, that make new terrorists. so just dont leak that video to the public!
solute to those men and women who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the interest of their nation,no matter what nationality, they r heroes. but the ways they protect should be improved.i think Americans've already lost the war in propaganda, because actually many people in the world dont think Americans are good.
