On the one side, the Debt-based Anglo-American European alliance with trade agreements across the board that encourage the mechanization of labor (NAFTA contributed to part of the U.S. Immigration Crisis when millions of out-of-work Mexicans descended on Texas and California) and on the other, for reasons not quite fully explained (Gold? The Petrodollar? Islam? “Terrorism”?)… the entire Middle East.

Of course, the incredibly underestimated Brazil, Russia, India, China and South African (BRICS) economic alliance that encourages a more level playing field for workers could be playing a shadow part here…

      This footage was from an Apache.

      Get your facts right.

      This footage is about 10 years old.

        No. It is not. It is an ongoing commentary ‘shot’ every day by the Great Weapons of the Military Industrial War Materials Manufacturing industry that keeps everyone in the profiteers’ constituencies at work every day and attempts to convince the rest of us that war is a good investment… so continue to invest your sons and daughters… the rich get richer the rest get deaded…

      This footage is from an AH64 Apache Attack Helicopter.
      It is a war crime. These were farm workers, they were in a farm field, NOT on a road. What’s witnessed being carried and tossed is an irrigation pipe. There’s no mention in the video of any “improvised explosive device”. What the Apache pilots see that raises their suspicion that the men have a weapon, is an irrigation pipe they presume is a rocket propelled grenade launcher. Even if the men had weapons, they weren’t fighting anybody. There was no proof of their having murdered anybody, much less even injured anybody. If they were suspected of possessing weapons, considering these soldiers are from the land of weapons freedom, there shouldn’t even have been an investigation. But if these soldiers in their vicious attack helicopter thought it smart to prosecute farmers for owning weapons, they should have called into somebody who would ride out there and talk to these guys, find out what’s the deal and asked them to submit to arrest if they thought they were up to no good. Machine gunning people on mere suspicion of possession, when you possess and are in fact riding in a far more devastating machine, is the greatest height of hypocrisy. Then these Apache pilots, in blatant violation of the Geneva Convention, machine gun an injured man, who is nowhere near any weapon and who had been halfway splattered by a 30mm bullet. Easily this is a war crime.

      • DanielVincentKelley

        In short, an Apache Attack Helicopter is not a police tool. It’s a vicious slaughter machine where it’s fighting personnel who don’t have a shred of armor amongst them. Using such weapons against civilians, farmers, ordinary people, as a tool of policing is vicious treachery and a horrific war crime.

        • DanielVincentKelley

          The Apache Attack Helicopter is designed for use against TANKS with heavy armor.
          Do you see any tanks in that field?
          These pilots should have known better. When this video was recorded it had already been revealed that the war in Iraq was being conducted by war profiteers for their personal monetary profit. That these pilots would carry out these orders from despicable people who had made obvious that they slaughtered a million people for cash profit, it certifies these pilots as abominable turds.

        Daniel, irrigation pipes do not have handles sticking out like this pipe he had. If you notice, when he pulls it out to begin with, there is a front handle he is holding it by. When he throws it into a field there is a rear handle quite clear. Sorry bud.

        It is not a presumption it was an rpg, it clearly was. It is a massive presumption on your part that the “irrigation” pipe had handles.

        Beyond this, would you like to explain their clearly suspicious behavior of these oh so innocent farmers? According to your ideas, we are only to take out someone after they kill us… Really…. ride out there and talk? I think you mean “ride out there and get shot.” Sorry, when a bad guy has an rpg, you take out the bad guy. You act as if these men with the weapons were stupid or something. I assign intelligence. We don’t need proof of them murdering, only having weapons. I am surprised you can’t understand that this is a war zone, and not someplace innocent like Chicago where guns are banned and the innocent civilians carry irrigation pipes and not guns. BTW: Even in Chicago, if the police see you pull a weapon, they shoot. Same here.

        Further, I for one would rather have superior firepower. The idea of only having equal firepower is suicide. You seem rabid about the mention of “vicious attack helicopter…” Sad.

        You will be the first killed when you innocently go out and talk to them.

        • greenghost

          Even if it was a weapon Top Hat they were throwing the weapon down walking around unarmed not aiming it at anyone. The logical assumption would be they were getting rid of a weapon disarming. Thats not a reason to attack.

        • Tom Dennen, the paranoid historian

          Well, now, Mister Top Hat, you’ve hit it on the head, you’ve rubbed the nub, cracked the crux, put on a plate the nitty-grity reality sandwich no one is partaking of: a (perhaps) unintended but totally logical conclusion embedded in your comment: “The idea of only having equal firepower…) was – we all thought – Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Last Words on equal firepower and called it Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD), or as you put it, suicide.
          Yes, your Rules of Engagement apply equally in Iraq as they do in Chicago because, and I reiterate (and will ad infinitum, NOT ad arguendum) this obvious Truth: “When war is the most profitable business on the planet, the first casualty is Truth, the next is anything that will create the need to manufacture more weapons…” with or without ‘handles’… the Nukes? Well, they sure are a ‘deterrent’ aren’t they? BUY BONDS, SUPPORT THE WAR for the war profiteers running this planet.

      When war is the most profitable business on the planet, the first casualty is Truth, the next is anything that will create the need to manufacture more weapons…

    • jwhitehawke

      This video is about 6 or more years old. WTF? I thought your news was BEFORE………. NOT years after. Don’t turn into a rag.

      • @sshole

        too late

      • Tom Dennen, the paranoid historian

        jwhite, you’ve been conditioned by ‘rags’ to the point where u doan read ‘em… go through the comments here (all ‘before the news’) and see where humanity finally concurs on the Masters of War we all (including the ‘rags’) work for… if you want ‘before’ tell us what to do about them before they blow up our home…

    • Demaclies

      Looks like they were using 20mm DU munitions… hate to have to ‘clean the barrel’, or eat anything from that field, EVER!
