Low Points in American History
Winning their hearts and minds. Warning, not for the weak.
If the video doesn't play for you here is the sequence:
Iraqi lying wounded on the ground. Marines 50 feet away taking sniper shots at him. One hits. Everyone cheers like they just made a crucial first down. Cut to interview with soldier. "those guys are dead now. But it was a good feeling, afterwards you're like, hell yeah! lets do it again".
Repulsed and at loss for words. Is this what my country represents now?
