For those who didn't watch Fahrenheit 9/11 (with the US soldiers giggling about a dead man's penis), check out the kind of goodwill some soldiers are fostering in Iraq:
Making kids run for water
That's the way to win the war on terror. Send stupid American kids with guns over into a PR nightmare without giving them any clue about how to be professional soldiers. I find it ironic that so many people go on and on about supporting and honoring the troops without asking that they do the same to the uniforms they wear.
What kind of human being makes kids scramble after them for fucking WATER?
And for the record, I don't particularly fault the soldiers in that video either. They're just kids themselves really. Unfortunately they're the kids who tied firecrackers to dogs and cats, and burned ants with magnifying glasses. The sad thing is that I know lots of people who could look at that video and laugh their asses off without stopping to think what it must have been like for those children running behind the truck desperate for a single bottle of water.
