« Young Marine Survives Violence in Iraq Just to be Killed on the Streets of Cleveland | Main | Whatever Happened to the Blowup Doll? »

YouTube allows a video that shows a Marine being shot in Iraq. UPDATE: Video removed.

It's interesting appalling how anything remotely critical of Islam is removed ASAP from YouTube, but an Iraqi sniper shooting a Marine in the head is OK.

Here's the link -- I won't embed the video here out of principle. I'm only including the link to ask all of you to please go and flag the video. This is just sickening and appalling. There's really not much more to say on the subject, except to again ask you to please flag this video ASAP. It isn't OK to let videos of our troops being killed in action stand. This is nothing more than enemy propaganda, and YouTube probably won't remove it if we don't force them to.

Even more disgusting? It currently has a three star rating out of a possible five. Who would possibly give this a positive rating? Several commenters left positive remarks. Here's a few:

amazing shot

LOL! George Bush is a Texas oilman BinLaden family is a Saud Oilman 1+1=Oil profit.And when did a war become commercialized HALLIBURTON-reconstruction and troop support $18 billion,PARSONS-Eng.&construction $5.3 billion,DYNO CORP INTL.-Police training $1.9 billion,TRANSATLANTIC TRADER-Surveillance Aircraft $5 million,BLACKWATER-Private Security $21 million and counting.And our soldiers are dying but other ppl are profiting from it. well like what they say in work here DoD IRAQ FOR SALE!

it's not rocket science, the solution is easy....get out of Iraq & your troops wont be killed any more...remember it is the west that is the invaders & occupiers there.

hey usa idiots...why not come to egypt, millions are waiting eagerly to cut your heads, millions can't get to iraq so why not come to egypt to get you and this mobarak thing in one garbage bag to the hell.

5 stars! I love seeing stupid marines die. I fucked up a marine in tj; punch him square on the face, best feeling i ever had.

The Iraqis are real men: they resist the invasion with all the power they have and sacrifice their lives in the name of freedom, they've won my respect.


freedom fore Iraq-now.

This Video made my day :)
5 stars

And on and on. Imagine if that was your father, brother, husband. It's just callous and cruel and disgusting. There are plenty of comments expressing disgust and outrage, but it's sad that there are people who would say these kinds of things in response to this video.

So please, again, flag the video. E-mail YouTube. Let's force them to take this piece of trash down.

UPDATE: The video has been removed for terms of use violation, thank God. Way to go YouTube for doing the right thing.

Baron Von Ottomatic:

The biggest draw back to war porn is that eventually something will come along that offends your sensibilities because it happened to one of your boys. I know I've enjoyed some videos/photos of our soldiers doing their job and killing AQI/insurgents in Iraq. Search "iraq jdam" on YouTube and there are 121 videos.

A while back I was forwarded an e-mail chain with a pic of a suicide bomber who was stopped by a .50 caliber round to the head. As you might expect, it was pretty f'ing nasty.

So it's a double edged sword. None of our brave US troops who've been killed in Iraq died pleasantly. It is a fact of war. This is why we hold our soldiers in such high esteem - they know first hand the risks they face and don't hesitate to expose themselves to danger very few of us can even comprehend.

A video like this should steel our resolve. We must not let the fallen die in vain. The only acceptable outcome is victory. You can bet this video only makes our soldiers more determined than ever to send as many terrorists as possible to Allah's sweaty bosom. Let's hope it has the same effect on our civilian "leaders" who believe retreat is a viable strategy.

Thank God for the brave men and women in the US armed forces. You're better than me and you have my eternal gratitude.

When you notice some of the purely moronic comments on almost any youtube video, you can't be surprised. I've considered the comment section on youtube to be the lowest common denominator, the bottom rung of a very deep ladder of people who spout out liquid concentrated un-intelligence while also cowardly hiding behind anonymity. It's best to pay these idiots no mind, since any since of outrage will be ineffective, and be even more likely to spawn more idiocy.
