UN-! BE-! FUCKING-! LEIVABLE! :(

WARNING: Shocking content that shows in no uncertain terms that these guys in the Apache need to learn what a camera and an RPG actually look like before shooting!

Yes, I know it is hard to see at these distances. If you're not sure, don't shoot! Okay, so, I guess that they were sure - and deluded.

*stunned*

If you're not sure, don't shoot!

The thing is, they can't. Cameras look a lot like RPGs or other weapons and if they hesitate, they're dead. Blame the insurgents for planting terrorists in the middle of civilians and using them as human shields.

I'd also question anything put up on YouTube. No journalistic integrity at all and you don't know how it is been edited or even if it is real footage.
