I agree with that and the reason I didn't make an essay out of my posts because I just didn't want to go that deep. There are dirty politicians all over America, there are oil companies, and there are personal interests of rich men involved. I just won't go too far into it.
There is also a ton of innocents on both sides dead due to terrorism from them or our retaliation, but that's exactly it. Retaliation. We're not allowed to shoot first, we have to spot a guy, call it in, wait a bit for deliberation, and they walk off most the time before clearance to fire.
That's how the war works, not only are we working against ourselves, we're facing dirty tactics from the enemy. These soldiers are apologizing on their own behalves because they got memes from media or other sources that what they're doing is wrong and feel bad, and in reality they shouldn't. The unedited video has what looks to be an RPG tube on it. The trained men watching that noticed it and took action. It's the terrorists fault they fight in civilian clothes against the Geneva Convention that clearly states all fighters have uniform of some type on. These guys shouldn't feel so bad for themselves but the public has SUCH a negative opinion on the war that they do. Our soldiers already have low morale due to the conditions they are put in ROE-wise and are much more easily swayed. Them feeling bad is not being human, it's being manipulated.
EDIT: spelling fixes
