    Apache slaughter

    MPEG gun camera video footage on how to eliminate Iraqi foot soldiers. Man I remember doing the exact same thing in Jane's AH64D Longbow.

    I remember doing something similar in those PC games.Notice how easy it is to kill someone when they are so far away and look so insignificant.

    It's calm and peaceful because the helicopters were so far away and untouchable. It would be a different story if they were engaging units with anti-aircraft weapons. What's more I don't believe the grounded US Marines found it any harder to shoot at the enemy, it always boils down to either you or me.

    Actually,studies have shown that troops tend to freeze up or delay shooting when they meet their enemy close up as they see it as a human being and it's in our nature not to kill another human being.But it becomes easier when the human being is represented by a few pixel and are given derogatory names to degrade them so that they are seen as less than human.

    Until your comrades and friends get blown away. If you don't yourself first. Like Sean Connery's character in The Rock said, "You must not hesistate." Here's a 165Mb long footage of an AC-130U gunship bombing run

    Even with your buddies getting blown up.Some will still freeze up while others will start firing.
