    Wow. Think that the Marine Corps Times reporter has an opinion on the shooting?

    The petition was created by Alan Swinney, 34, a former soldier and veteran of the 1991 Persian Gulf War, who posted it on a free Web-based service.

    “I know a lot of people who [are] really upset about it and I’m just trying to find a voice,†the drug screening collector from Midland, Texas, said in a Nov. 19 interview.

    That's a very interesting article.

    Bound to spark some debate.

    What issue do you have with the cameraman's account?

    Is it that an explanation of the event from the guy who shot the footage is bound to cloud the issue further? Or is it that he's an obstacle to those who would prefer to see violations of the rules we're trying to wage war by go unpunished?

    Read the article by the cameraman.

    Send Marine infantry into battle and the ask them to restrain the agression? BS. That's a good way to get the wrong folks hurt.

    One problem is with the fact that I don't see pictures spread all around, nor do I read nearly as many accounts accounts of, the torture houses; didn't he see any of those?
    Another problem is dealing with some of the tactics used by the insurgents, including shooting from the mosque, waving white flags and ambushing Marines, and laying as though dead and then shooting Marines.
    If you are going to report fairly as the camraman says is correct, and I agree, then report it all equally.
    I was an officer in the Marine Corps and I agree that the rules should be followed but sitting in an arm chair next to the server with only one side of the story is not where a judge should be.
    Each of us here in the US can and should speak freely, but we should also be balanced.
