    The risks journalists take?! Its fucking retarded how people in the media think they can just saunter out onto the battle field and get great action footage. Put the camera down and pick up a gun if you want to see what's going on and while you're there do something to help out!

    Damn :eek3:

    That's crazy, you just see the flash, and for a split second before the camera cuts you can see the trees in front of him parting from the shockwave of the shell.

    That comment by that Reuters guy only made me mad.

    The government shouldn't have to worry about fucking journalists in the middle of a fire fight :ugh:

    pointing a big object at a tank from your shoulder while looking into an eye piece is a GREAT way to see if darwin is paying any attention.

    If I were them I would've fired, too. Just because you have a truck that says "TV" and you have a press vest on, does that mean you can't be a terrorist?

    In one of the videos where you see the aftermath, you can see the truck was sitting pretty low behind a berm. The idiots seem to have been on a little hill above the truck, the tank crew most likely couldn't see more than the roof if anything. If I'm sitting there and notice a group of three men on a hill and one is pointing something that could be some sort of AT weapon at me, they are getting smoked.

    "The markings on Fadel Shana's vehicle showed clearly and unambiguously that he was a professional journalist doing his duty. We and the military must work together urgently to understand why this tragedy took place and how similar incidents can be avoided in the future," Schlesinger added"

    Yea, because in a situation like that, you have a whole lot of time to determine whether or not it's friend or foe. If you hesitate while trying to figure out if the moran w/ the RPG-like apparatus on his shoulder is going to kill you or not, chances are you (the tank guys) are already dead.

    Cliffs: Keep your stupid ass off the battlefield if you don't feel like dying.

    Jesus fuck, even if they figured out what was going on it was already too late. That shell was definitely supersonic so they would all be dead before they even heard anything. There would just be a flash and then lights out.
