Who saw the story last night about the abandoned convoy in Iraq?

The one where the one truck was overturned and the other guys broke down. Then the convoy escorts just left them there to deal with it. The one survivor filmed it on a camcorder...

Anyone have a link to this video?

From what I saw these guys were going to deliver supplies and the escorts made a wrong turn. Unknowingly they were going down a dead end road and being pelted by rocks and random gun fire. When they turned around the people had already set up on them knowing that they had to come back through and a bomb caused the first truck to tunr over on its side. The man and his wife that were driving (who survived the wreck) were drug out and shot then stripped and beat some more. The guy is the second truck (who's truck was disabled) filmed it all. When the escorts started to leave he got on the CB and was pleading for them to come back. This was all before the other people were killed. He took 2 rounds to the arm but survived for another 45 minutes before somebody came back to get him.

I saw that last night, it was pretty messed up how they just left them there to die. They were calling them to come back and get them out of there and they just left them. That would be a sick ass feeling sitting there waiting to be the next to die. SCREWED UPFF

This is the first that I've heard of the incident. Why did the troops just leave them? Isn't that why they have military escorts? In the event that something like this happens?

WTF??

Given the unlimited resources, a true hot rodder wouldn't be content until he had created a car so violent, so hairy, so totally sick, that the very act of pressing the throttle, would result in instant death.

Anything less than that, results in the need to make it go faster.

Especially when they are right there throwing rocks and shooting point blank at you. I'd run a motherfucker over in a heartbeat in that situation.

The camera man/driver of the truck who survived said towards the end he was at peace with god and prepared to die and then the helicopter gun ships flew overhead and the rebels retreated. I can't imagine the feeling that overcame him at that moment; facing death and the next thing you know he was safe. That would be gut wrenching to be in that position. On top of the whole mess the subsitiary(sp?) of Halliburton who employed him, fired him a couple months later for being injured on the job.


I don't see why the military escorts who looked to have 50 cal. guns equiped on their vehicles didn't mow down anything in their site at that time?

You know, I watched the video on here, was disturbed, posted, went to lunch and watched people. I sat there and watched how 1/2 the people were on cellphones or texting, worried about what came on their burger, laughing at dumbass jokes told at the table, getting mad because the line was long, trying to find a parking spot, etc.

I just gotta say, thank God we took the fight over there!!! If shit went down like it is in Iraq, 90% of our population wouldn't know what the fuck to do with themselves. Most of you would sit there, frozen, while you soiled yourselves, the rest would run in panic. I don't know how many people would react in a manner of protection/survival, but I know it can't be a lot. If shit ever goes down here, there's not going to be enough resources/responders available to everyone, which will start yet another panic. Sometimes I just want to stand in a crowded public area and scream from the top of my lungs, "What the fuck is wrong with you people?!?!" This nation is just a bunch of cocksuckers that are blind to what's really going on in the world. Most of the population would be worthless crap if ever called upon in a time of need... and you know what? Fuck them. Fuck all those human speed bumps that would have nothing to offer but a whine and more problems to deal with. This isn't just directed at certain people, but everyone in general when I say you need to get your minds' straight and always be ready for anything. It's not just penny stocks and Tickle Me Elmos out there and it won't be here forever either. Sometimes I really hate our fucking society...

Sorry, just in one of those moods.

I had forgot about the fact that Halliburton fired the guy later for getting injured. Also I read that Halliburton forbids the drivers to carry any sort of firearm. THAT is F'ed up to me as well.

Denny, I think more people that you imagine feel the same way. I look around everyday and see tons of worthless piles of walking shit that would probly rather take advantage of the situation by looting than doing anything to help if a something ever came down. I just do not understand how things like this happen (with the trucks) I want to give the service guys the benefit of the doubt on that one but it really looks like they got scared and only took care of themselves. I cant imagine joining the service and then taking a position like that when someone needed my help and I was the only one who could provide it.

I just wanna put a firearm in the hands over a teenage boy who is a die-hard "gamer" and see if he could actually take a life if needed. Or maybe one of those girls with Daddy's cedit card down at the mall, tring to get every name brand jean into her closet. How about one of those engineers, take their building plans out from under their arm and insert a rifle there. Most would turn their head before pulling the trigger, if they got the nerve. I wouldn't even want to think about any of them in a hand to hand confrontation. or killing their own meal.

I saw it last night, very disturbing, death was at that guys door as he watched the lead trucker get yanked out and shot, and then the following trucker get shot, he was next. I don't know how he survived in that truck for another 40 minutes knowing he is probably next.

His truck had broken down so there was no mowing over anyone, he was totally stranded to watch these men act like animals. Hopefully the government can compensate this guy for stranding him to be left for dead in a crappy situation. The story said that Halliburton does not supply maps for the truckers, but apparently this was known before going in. It seemed like the government wanted to hush hush the situation saying they lost documents for a full investigation. Sad story.

I was told that even if every one of the troops your with are killed and your life is threatened, if you pick up a weapon and fire it, you're fired. No ifs ands or buts. I already had my mind made up that they'd just have to fire my ass and deal with the media/lawyers/etc.

Having been there, and seen the kind of people that take on that type of job, can you really imagine anyone actually sitting there waiting to die?

I mean, I can't think of ANYTHING that would make me not defend myself in a "me or them" situation... especially my job.

Look at that disillusioned dipshit that got his head sawed off. He never saw that rusty blade coming. I don't think the reality even hit him until they showed his blinking severed head to his body. He had zero killer or fight instinct in him at all. He just fucking sat there peacefully.

No, we all had an "understanding" about what to do if it ever came down to it. There were several, believe it or not, that probably would just sit and wait, though. I chose to distance myself from them. I just don't see how they let some of those people out there in the first place. We had old ladies working out there, doing some admin/accounting type shit. We had people so overweight, that we had to fabricate a vest from two flack jackets. We hired and brought out people with disabilities that would prevent them from even breaking into a brisk walk.

They'd hire anyone with a pulse from what I always understood. Didn't you manage to get some guns or some shit while you were there? That is exactly what I would have done.

I just finally watched the video with sound. Pretty amazing stuff.

Denny, does the US not ever run ambush operations out there? What I mean is, do they not ever send trucks out as bait and wait until the assholes attack and then blow the piss out of them? You'd think that would be a great way to kill those fucks. You'd think they'd armor up a trailer on the inside and load it up with marines and deliver a fucking suprise package to this assholes.

"Oh shit 30 marines just jumped out of that trailer I was shooting at..."

No we do not run ops like that, we are here to transfer to power over to the ISF and IA not ambush the insurgents and the unit that conducted that convoy was an Amry unit not trashing the army or anything but i have yet to see shit like that for the Marine Corps out here, and for the most part the KBR drivers out here are pretty safe and they have new up armored trucks now so thats even better. Yeah this incident sucked but the media does blow things out of the water, and hell this video has been out for a while over here in Iraq they just havent realesed it for a while. You can ask most KBR drivers that when they are rolling with us out there they feel pretty safe and beside these are called escort missions not combat operations and raids on insurgents.

I just gotta say, thank God we took the fight over there!!! If shit went down like it is in Iraq, 90% of our population wouldn't know what the fuck to do with themselves. Most of you would sit there, frozen, while you soiled yourselves, the rest would run in panic. I don't know how many people would react in a manner of protection/survival, but I know it can't be a lot. If shit ever goes down here, there's not going to be enough resources/responders available to everyone, which will start yet another panic. Sometimes I just want to stand in a crowded public area and scream from the top of my lungs, "What the fuck is wrong with you people?!?!" This nation is just a bunch of cocksuckers that are blind to what's really going on in the world. Most of the population would be worthless crap if ever called upon in a time of need... and you know what? Fuck them. Fuck all those human speed bumps that would have nothing to offer but a whine and more problems to deal with. This isn't just directed at certain people, but everyone in general when I say you need to get your minds' straight and always be ready for anything. It's not just penny stocks and Tickle Me Elmos out there and it won't be here forever either. Sometimes I really hate our fucking society...

Sorry, just in one of those moods.
I agree with you completely. I am DEFINITELY NOT one of those "speedbumps" and if the fight ever came here, I would be fully loaded and ready to go. I'd have my wife and kid somewhere safe though. I'd go in to debt up to my ears to make sure they were not in harms way.

That's what I figured and that's part of the problem. Bunch of politically correct bullshit.

I wouldn't give a bucket of piss for every sub human in Iraq. I really couldn't care less if they all just fucking died and rotted away in the desert. I'd sleep just fine...

Like the Krauts did in WW2 with trains.
When aircraft would attack the box cars would open up and AAA guns would let loose.
