when civilians mix with insurgents, innocent people get injured in the attacks.

Couldn't agree more - collateral damage it's called isn't it?

That second link just shows how mistakes can be made, but the Apache crew showed just how much they enjoyed the job, more like a video game to them, no wonder the Americans like to call most mistakes "friendly fire". No wonder the Americans didn't want it released.

They should have noticed that none of them attempted to hide, they were in the open and talking in a group with a helicopter circling overhead, but I suppose they enjoy their job too much to notice little things like that.

sunnystaines & Pine man
Surely it is the insurgents mingling (hiding)amongst the Innocent civilians,yet when they (the innocent civilians) are killed we call it "collateral damage",yet when our own innocent civilians are killed by terrorists we call it murder.
Also it is easy to see why the Americans produce so many Blue on blue mistakes.

One final point,war can be a tragic waste of life,be it young soldiers or innocent civilians and for what? freedom?, or freedom for the west to have a secure oil supply?
