Murder – Just Like In The Video Games

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2010 by hellnbak

By now I am sure most of you have seen the “Collateral Murder” video that was released via Wikileaks.  I do not want to get involved with the arm chair debates over what should or should not have happened.  I have no real military experience to speak of unless being chased off a Canadian base by MPs counts.  I also have a ton of respect for the soldiers who put their lives on the line so assholes like me can say what is on my mind.

That said, a friend of mine who I won’t name pointed out how close the real life footage from the Apache gun camera footage is to the Call of Duty 4 AC-130 Mission.  I found this comparisson amusing.  I mean they even got the bounce of the corpse right in the video game.  Well done…..
