I watched the first part. Very good... I intend to watch the second part. It was interesting to hear that the word, "Haji", is what's used when referring to Arabs. Like Nigger, Spic, Kike, Pollock, Wop, etc... He said the military almost completely uses that termonology.

And that fact that soldiers like to break soda bottles over Iraqi civilian's heads while driving down the road.

Look... I'm sure they're being fed A LOT of bullshit... military propaganda used to "stimulate" enlisted personnel. I'm sure by this point, they've had people they know killed in combat, or by "friendly fire". They may well be aware of the reasons for the war at this point thanks to letters from home, etc... Although I don't condone it, I am aware that "things" happen in war. Anyone doing something illegal against an Iraqi should face the consequences. However, we MUST remember that a few bad apples, doesn't spoil the bucket, or whatever that saying is... We have to remember that they're there for a lie, and that HAS to be causing "stress" beyond what I'm capable of describing.
