Not For The Weak Stomach – Reality of War!!

(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Salon has this up at their site and I’m sure we haven’t heard the end of this incident, or like others maybe we have!!

The only way that doesn’t happen is if You, the Citizens Of This Country, Make Sure It Gets Investigated and Indictments come down, not for the Soldiers but for those in Leadership, Top Down!!

Friendly fire in Iraq – and a coverup

The Army says no, but a graphic video and eyewitness testimony indicate that a U.S. tank killed two American soldiers. The mother of one soldier demands answers.

I’m not going to give you much here, but Watch the Videio’s, warning included, and use the above links, than slam your Representatives with the needs to investigate, help these soldiers Families and this Nation!

Editor’s note: Mark Benjamin’s friendly fire investigation contains 1) the main article, 2) video documentation {Video’s Below} and 3) the Army’s own report on the killing of Nelson and Suarez.

The main article starts out with the following:

Oct. 14, 2008 | PHILADELPHIA – Once a cop, always a cop. Asked if she wanted to see a graphic battle video showing her son Albert bleeding to death, Jean Feggins, retired from the Philadelphia Police Department, said yes.

“Listen, I’ve moved dead bodies of people I don’t even know,” she told me,  as she sat on a brown couch in the den of her West Philadelphia row house. “I need to know everything. Because he is not a stranger. That’s my baby. That’s my child.”

Listen carefully.

Helmet-cam footage from Ramadi, Iraq (12-min. edited version). Warning: Contains graphic violence and profanity.

An interview with Jean Feggins, mother of Pfc. Albert Markee Nelson, who died of wounds received in the alleged friendly fire incident.

This report is five pages at the site, at the bottom of each page there’s a title for the next, below are these titles:

“Dude, I’m almost positive that was that tank, because I saw him flash”

“We know it was a tank. They got an ass whooping coming. That’s all I got to say”

“It is fucking plain as day that the tank shot at the building I was in and killed two of my friends”

“He said, ‘He was killed instantly. He was killed so fast that he didn’t have time to feel pain'”

Accountibility for all that this Country, and much of this World, have been put through, leading up to the Financial Collapse, must be one of the first Orders of this Countries Business when the Civilian Leadership Changes, taking with them many in the Military Ranks as well.

“Bring Them Home NOW, and Take Care Of Them When They Return”


  1. I read this yesterday & it is unbelievable that after watching the video, live from the battlefield, that a ruling, contrary to the evidence, could ever be accepted.

    I sent the links & story off to Magnifico last evening in hopes it would get a wider readership than my circle of contacts.

    This is a “must see” to understand the CYA  attitude of the higher command.

    What is ironic is that during the obvious attempt to squash the real story, the camera  (a helmet cam, running during the battle & it`s aftermath) was still  running.

    Thank you for spreading the truth.

  2. Maybe they should leave Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia and just leave these ARABS alone.

    The American people have no one to blame but the American people. This isn’t the fault of the “leaders”.

    They are about to elect on of two ARAB KILLERS, Obama or McCain…who both plan to continue this PHONY war against “terrorists”.

  3. It’s amazing there’s so little commentary on this excellent diary that provides REAL INFORMATION…not hyperbole about how wonderful Barak Obama is going to be or how we need to get the vote out.

    I read the Salon article, I looked at both videos.

    And you can see the pressure to lie about this war…not from George Bush but by the seargeant Robinson who tells his men after talking to his “superiors” that the attack was an Iraqi attack …even though he knows better.

    Robinson doesn’t want to argue with his “superiors” and risk his status. His superiors don’t want to hear about friendly fire because they must answer to “higher ups” and so the only people who get really angry or hurt are the dead soldiers and the soldiers who don’t have the desire or ability to become officers or seargeants.

    And did I not hear that they spoke to the tank and the tank upon hearing that it was to blame for shooting into the building and killing Americans…”took off”…the soldier says…”I don’t think he understood me”….maybe the tank understood all too well….and RAN.

    And this keeps going all the way up to the President…and to the American people who he represents accurately…..

    The President and the American people don’t want to KNOW ANYTHING EITHER…

    But there’s a problem…

    It’s all falling down on their heads, the roof is collapsing as it did in the building in Ramadi….in the fake war and the fake attempt to “root” out terrorism but killing Arabs, invading their homes, raping their women, torturing their children…all for NO REASON.

    The roof is the economy of the United States. And that economy and it’s problems are DIRECTLY related to the “FAKE WARS” in the Mid East.

    But the refusal to see what’s happening is right here on this website, and all throughout the liberal and conservative media…..It’s a refusal to see reality as it actually is….and that’s why you have a choice between two different ARAB KILLERS….one who doesnt want to stop killing Arabs…just slow it down…and the other who wants to kill MORE Arabs and anyone else….

    That’s not much of a choice.

    America will kill America….as shown here…before it kills it’s imaginary enemies.
