Medevac.. as low as a human can be, Even Juba in Iraq had more respect by not attacked while soldiers were evacuated.
Source Icasualties: Hostile - hostile fire - helicopter crash

There was alot of speculation going around on Liveleak. unfortunately most of it was wrong.
Thats is why I repost the article. credits, children and goat anus and tea for @light The original poster. IN NO WAY I HAVE ANY AFFILIATION WITH THIS POS

At least four US troops have been killed after a helicopter operated by
the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) went down in
the conflict-plagued southern Afghanistan.



The Black Hawk aircraft crashed in Helmand Province on Thursday, a US
military officer told The Los Angeles Times on condition of anonymity.



An official ISAF statement read, “The crash site is secured; the cause
is under investigation. Additional information will be released as
appropriate.”

UPDATE



The Taliban claimed responsibility Friday for downing a Black Hawk helicopter in southern Afghanistan.

"Yesterday (Thursday) evening Taliban fighters shot down a helicopter
and killed all its passengers in Khanashen Dewalak area near Garmsir,
southern Helmand province," a Taliban spokesman wrote to CNN.

The helicopter's four crew members, all of them American, are believed to be dead, a U.S. military official said.

Fatal helicopter crashes involving members of the NATO-led International
Security Assistance Force are not unprecedented in Afghanistan, with
some of the aircraft brought down by enemy fire while others crashed for
mechanical reasons.

  • You'll have to forgive me, but when the point is to take out as many of the enemy as possible (especially when so outmatched), I can't say I blame them. You kinda gotta take your chances. The only difference between a wounded soldier and a dead one is that the wounded one can come back again.

    I'm not saying it's right (none of it is "right"), but one has to understand the circumstances. How many times have Americans killed wounded enemies on the battlefield? Hundreds. We've seen it he More..

    • @wawa17 Christianity evolved for the most part 400 years ago, Islam is still in the stone ages as far as human rights, equality and tolerance are concerned. Haven't heard of many Christian honor killings in England recently, as opposed to hundreds of Islamic ones every single year. In fact it was only last week that a 35 year old Muslim woman was stabbed to death at 8 O'clock in the morning by her jilted 51 year old husband to be in Bedford, UK.

  • Also, having claimed they shot down a MEDEVAC there's been a video posted on here of a a MEDEVAC heli winching US soldiers from a forested area less than 150M from a DSHK and RPG.

    I don't see why I need to defend their actions though because they don't intentionally attack civillians and then take pictures with them.

  • i was in the opinion that all medivacs and black hawks were always escorted by apache attack choppers, and not allowed to fly alone? so even if it went down and there were survivors i dont think the taliban just walked and shot them all!

  • The Taliban claimed responsibility huh? And we have whose word to go on? Oh just the people who want to continue the invasion. No problem then. Send your own fucking kids in and any mercenaries you can find. Then deal with the international backlash and the criminal prose ution that will result. Orrr you can order the military to do your dirty work and escape prosecution while lying to the world and sarcificing other peoples children.

  • You don't remember all the clips here on LL where wounded people are being shot at with 30mm cannons (and LL commenters applaud)? Then maybe you remember the video where an Apache crew first killed and wounded a couple of people in Kabul and then shot at the people who were trying to bring some of the wounded kids to hospital?

    Stop crying about a medevac being shot at. It's simply ridiculous. You don't care a fuck about human rights or the Geneva conventions, they don't. It's as simple as that More..

      You better check your memory before you spew your emotional BS - isolated case, sure it was a fuckup though, NOT intentional, the world knows that if they knew they were civilians they would have never fired - you have your logic and examples all warped. If you watch the entire video you hear them realize their mistake and we all know the rest. You flopped.
