Here is the explanation:
Wikileaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage 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. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths occurred. Wikileaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com

This is the same action and cover-up story for which Nazi Germany was known, and for which the US was known in Korea and Vietnam, and everywhere else in the world. The United States, built on the genocide of Native Americans, enslavement of Africans and the vicious exploitation of the labor of all nationalities that continues to this day, is a fascist capitalist society with its sole concern being maximization of profits, the greatest profits being in oil and munitions. The military exists to maximize those profits, and is the biggest user of oil and munitions. The US HAS NEVER BEEN any kind of democratic country as you cannot have a profit motive and democracy. Watch the video, watch the videos on the collateral murder website, read the explanations, and please stop referring to this backward, fascist, murderous country as any kind of democracy. It is a fascist hellhole currently destroying its school system, its healthcare system and everything else labor fought for. Only a labor movement capable of carrying out a general strike can put an end to the profit motive, the cause of all our grief.
