Its old, there is another thread running on this one. Nothing wrong with the yanks. I am sure some of our younger more daft Toms do this as well. We are told not to give the kids anything otherwise they just crowd around the MNF convoys and thats when they start to get runover. Stupid to record it ,daft gits.

-Is it now? I thought it to be some very ignorant G.I.'s, If it had happened in My Unit the Miscreants would be on the recieving end of some "Wall to Wall" Counseling , both for the act itself & filming it.
We Used to carry all manner of Items the Kids loved(Matchbox cars, plush toys, coloring books, etc.) give em out on patrol, or School Visits, paid dividends when same Kids warned of IED's ahead. I Helped re-build and stock School's in Radwiniyah, in Al-Ameriyah, Al Mansoor Muhallahs.
The sad thing is the Moron with the Bottle evidently is a NCO from the Stryker Bde going by the Combat Patch.
I agree, thats why I say the jackasses involved need some "tuning up "for this. There's No Excuse for these actions, & even less to Film & Post it for the world to see just how FCuking stupid they are. I hope the Senior NCO's in the 172nd take the appropriate actions on these morons.
Totally ******* disgusting but sadly not it's not just Americans who occasionally do this sort of thing. Our lads can be just as cruel 'for a laugh'. I remember one of the blokes giving the Serb three-finger salute to a group of Croat kids out of the back of the wagon in Bosnia. Just the same sort of thing really and the clowns on the vid deserve the same kind of rifting as he got.
