I feel that the video below shows intentional cruelty by an officer and brings dishonor on the army, and every soldier fighting in Iraq. The man holding the bottle was a officer as indicated by the person doing the filming repeatedly referring to him as sir. The officer should be charged under the UCMJ with Conduct unbecoming of an officer, the enlisted man who was filming should be ashamed.
How are our soldiers susposed to win a war in a hostile country, when they do things like this which will prevent them from ever winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqi population. This quite likely will end up being used by the insurgency as a very effective recruiting video. The video is below the fold….
It’s time to bring our troops home now.
