Shoot first....

Oh, the irony.

Update: In all seriousness, what this incident reveals, more clearly to Western audiences than anything that's happened to date, is just how indiscriminate and massive the violence that U.S. soldiers are instructed to mete out. I have no doubt that these soldiers who shot this journalist were following the rules of engagement, and as such, it's clear that the people setting the rules are a problem. Let's just hope that the soldiers themselves are not scapegoated.
