US Soldier Shoots Dog

Here is ANOTHER video of cruelty to animals by US soldiers in Iraq.
My feeling is that they had this dog tied up and that is why it just sat there and barked and didn't either run away or come to the soldier. This cruelty situation is getting more horrendous.

Under what circumstances could this have been a justifiable action?

The issue of cruelty to animals by some soldiers in Iraq is getting a lot of national attention ever since the following video surfaced.

The military can't ignore it at this point and can't sweep it under the rug. With enough pressure, hopefully we can get them to put something into place to protect the animals of Iraq from cruelty, at least from our own soldiers, and at least in the green (IZ zone.) They also need to learn to implement humane methods of controlling rabies and stray animals.

This young persons parents must be so proud of the way he represents our country. I would be embarassed to admit I knew this human detritus and he does not belong in uniform.
BTW - Mohammad Odeh Rehaif, the Iraqi man who gave information leading to the safe recovery of Pvt Jessica Lynch was recently given amnesty. He came forward with the information on Jessica's whereabouts after witnessing some soldiers share their food with a stray dog. He said that the dog was aggressively guarding his bombed out home and the soldiers had their guns at ready, but instead of shooting, they comforted and fed the animal. He knew then that they were compassionate people and that he could trust them. These young people represented the best of our militlary people and their behaviour was representitive of the people of our country. Their actions spoke louder than their words. What would have happened to Jessica had the man seen the heartless bastards on these videos instead?

There are good soldiers for sure..However, I was appalled at the references to soldiers killing dogs in the poular book "From Baghdad With Love" a good book about a puppy being smuggled out of the country...

and obviously a lot of bad soldiers. and the problem is this is tolerated... How about a few simple training sessions for soldiers about respect for animals in a country we totally destroyed...assholes

This anti-social behaviour is often put in the category of "boys will be boys", and never fully investigated ...UNTIL they get tired of animal torture and move on to "bigger game". The military has a responsability to the public NOT to produce more efficient criminals with military training. Seems like this would be a good place for them to start curtailing unacceptable behaviours.

Thankfully not all of our military personnel behave this way. It's frightening to think most of these "people" will be back in the US before long. So what will they be doing for entertainment here? What big, strong men they are... I bet their parents are proud.

Are we sure we HAVE to share our world with "humans" such as this?

these videos are from 2003 time frame and does not show the whole picture of what really happened.

regardless of the time frame - the videos show men in uniform who are clearly committing crimes - abusing animals for their own sick amusement. The laws need to be enforced in order to have any meaning. Pychiatric evaluations are needed for ALL of them before they are returned to the USA and unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

These are sad and frightening videos. They represent our country, they must be bored and so sad at what they have become, and they are the ones that will come home and get a job as sheriff or deputy in St. Bernard parish. The irony is, there is a good chance they will loose a leg, sight or hearing. Then they will need a service dog. But will they be allowed to have one?

Oh These brave men, to pick on defenseless animals.

These men should relise that the world is watching and it is a reflection on their country
