I have to laugh at some of the comments here such as "bloodthirsty". Stupidity at it's finest, if just shooting civilians was all these guys had in mind then there are about 22 million targets (maybe 8-9 less after this one) all over Iraq and they could go hog wild up there. Fact is usually they fly for hours and hours with NO TARGETS, and NO SHOOTING what-so-ever. Bloodthirsty, please. They waited for, and got permission to fire, repeatedly. And if military personnel cussing/cursing offends your sensibilities then you must not get out much. Stick to your G rated movies, and leave the wars to the people that have to fight 'em. In addition, I'm surprised they used such restraint, they were operating under the assumption that they were insurgents, a couple rockets for good measure probably would have been fine too. It's a warzone, there are no uniforms on the other side, as long as one army dresses like civilians, this will happen. It's up to the Iraqi people to take back their country now from the insurgents (doing an okay job passed couple years). Turn em all in, stop aiding, stop harboring them.
