We Are Trained Killers

Watch this. Make your kids watch this. This is war, for REAL.
It is exceptionally disturbing.
This can't be what we wanted to do in Iraq or anywhere else.

We Are Trained Killers

I am afraid we have become the enemy we sought to destroy. Look at what we have done to them, and to our own soldiers.
This isn't victory, it's just death.
Worst of all, I am very ashamed of myself. I keep asking the question in my mind, "Why did they shoot that dog?"
Am I just another agent of evil that cares little for the dehumanization of our enemy, if indeed those Iraqis shown are our enemy?
I think before I can judge the actions of those in this film, I need to look into myself and answer that question.
Many sleepless nights ahead, I think.

(you're right, jim... it IS disturbing... EXTREMELY disturbing... so much so, in fact, that i decided to jump in and post the youtube video here...
