Given the spate of new US aggression in Syria and Yemen it’s a good time to rescue the recent past from the Memory Hole
So let’s revisit this famous video footage obtained by Wikileaks, from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. The fluoridated, de-sensitised young scions of American Exceptionalsim doing this murder can be heard conversing. It’s too obvious that for them this virtual, virtually risk-free “war” is just a cool upgrade of Call of Duty.
