YouTube gives some examples of why Iraqis may have a less than positive view of US occupiers. I am not only amazed at what some of these videos show, but also the fact that the soldiers who shot the videos were apparently proud of their behavior.
Driving in Baghdad
I first saw this one on MSNBC. Col. Jack Jacobs explained that this is the way US forces in Iraq are now trained to drive in Baghdad.
US Soldiers Taunt Kids With Water
US soldiers conduct “kid races” where they use precious clean drinking water in the same way they use the fake rabbit at the greyhound races.
US Soldiers Punish Looters of Firewood
Speaks for itself.
It would be hard to argue that any of the victims in these videos were deserving of this behavior.
