BAGHDAD - An Iraqi soldier shot dead at least two U.S. troops Wednesday at a joint security station where Iraqi and American forces operate side-by-side, Iraqi police and a mortuary official said.

  • This is just one incident, but it will have ramifications. Serious ramifications, e.g. distrust between the U.S. military and the Iraqi army/police etc.

  • I bet you anything that the soldiers fucked with him for a long time before he did this. Americans soldiers are fucked in the head, they have no respect or even common sense based on all the videos ive seen.

  • Even with training, those Iraqi clowns start spraying when action starts. I guess that's what happens when weapons are issued with an automatic function.

  • Wait for more details to pass judgement. This might be an Iraqi soldier pissed off, or it could be an inflitrator in an Iraqi Army uniform, or even an Iraqi who joing their army to do this at some point in the future and he decided to do it now.

    • You are twisted in the head and seem to write things out the way you want to believe them.

      You sound like the rest of the clones who claim Americans kill civilians without any proof, than you run to a lame video of an Iraqi kid being teased by nothing but words and the puppy tossing video? You have weak garbled arguments and try to compare them to the most complete opposite thing.

      Love how you cherry pick your arguments also. So you care that they were teasing Iraqi kids but couldn't care less More..
