Of course they just drove away.. Do you really think they were gonna exchange information and just let it up to the insurance companies? :P

Wow. Don't like the war? Get in line with the majority of the citizens in the US. But to take a single incident, of which you know nothing other than what a single camera can tell you, and extrapolate that Americans should die from it is simply reckless, not to mention malignant. Even from what we can see from this single camera, we can tell that the little car zipped out from around a bigger car, and got hit by a slow moving tank. The accident certainly wasn't the tank driver's fault, and I doubt his or her orders would include getting out of the tank and waiting for a police officer to take a report. Get a clue. Hate America all you want, but at least try to be rational about it--god knows that's still an easy route to take.

It’s unfortunate that the moron in the white car couldn’t see a military convoy barreling down the road. It’s also unfortunate that his countrymen would shoot anyone who that steps out of the tank to help.

That's nonsense, the crash was not planned, so no bomber could have been waiting there for them to get out.

This is just so wrong. Stupid US dickheads!

That "tank" is either a bradly or M113, which are both APCs.
From what I can tell, the other people in the intersection saw the convoy coming, and gave the right of way. Whilst that one guy in the white car wasn't paying attention (unluckily, a large vehicle was blocking his line of sight too).
The video also shows traffic lights in the intersection, so the light might've been green for the US convoy.
I personally think the tank crew 8-) should have done something besides driving off and leaving the poor guy to his broken car.
It doesn't set a good example as a person, or as an occapying army of your homeland. :(

I agree with BombDiggady, although judging by how quickly the white van at the top of the screen stops, I am inclined to believe the Convoy ran a Red Light, in which case, they should've done what any emergency Services Vehicle would've done and slowed down - or at least taken the intersection wider, rather than cutting so close to the front of the truck.
It is good to see that the CIVILIAN wasn't hurt in the incident although, I don't think that he will be able to blame his wife for being a bad driver ever again ;)

I can't believe that people are so caught up in their own worlds to not realize that we are at war. During WWII, in raids on Germany, did we stop to try to repair every house that was destroyed? Did the terrorists stop to try to help my brothers and sisters that died trying to save anothers life on 9/11?

We are at war, we are not over there to shake their hands and rub their balls. It is because of people like you LightAng3l that we are having such a tough time with this war. We need to win the war, then sure, let's be nice and try to help them... but let's focus on winning first!

LightAng3l, for you to wish death upon United States soldiers means that you just as well had been a hijacker in 9/11. You could have been the one to attack the USS Cole. You could have been the one to hide WMDs and gas your own people. You could have been the one to start a genocide against the Jews. You could have been the one to drop the first bomb on Pearl Harbor.

LightAng3l, there's only one thing left to say...

Move to Iraq you asshole.

It's true that the sequence doesn't look like a suicide bombers set up. However the fact that someone has a camera (CCTV or handheld) pointing at the tank, shows to me that it could have easily been a rifle scope instead. To leave the safety of the tank in an open area such as that could be fatal.
And like the guy says "we are at war..."

hey mrbradshaw5, if each time there is an hijack you have to go at war to find and kill a minority of terrorist, invade a country and kill a lot of innocent, you are the terrorist ! And stop talking about 9/11, Afghanistan ok ! but Iraq has nothing to do with it... Are you going to show me a piece of evidence with a satellite view where we can't see anything and tell me that's a suicide bombers boot camp ? ... Or if it's the argument of giving freedom to people by fighting Saddam, there are a lot more countries to invade ! good luck...

I meant, the marines cannot stop, because if they'd stop some suicide bomber might bomb. That's why they went nonstop. Not that the crash would have been planned.

Hey pimpu, if each time the bully at school steals a kids lunch money and nothing is done to stop him... he will keep on doing it. The same goes with terrorism, if it goes unchecked, it will continue. If you knowingly harbor a murderer in your house, aren't you just as guilty as he? I never said anything about a boot camp. Yes, Iraq is know to harbor the SAME terrorist organization that attacked my country. Honestly, I could give a shit less about the democracy of Iraq. Don't mess with me I won't mess with you. And don't say all we have done is persecute and aggravate them over there. They have us by the balls with oil and we helped Osama in 1979 against the Soviet Union.

I agree that the death of an innocent person is bad, but at the same time, it is a war. Innocent death will occur. If Iraq and the Taliban had the capability to bring a full fledged fighting force to America, there would be many innocent deaths. Wait, actually they would go farther, they would be killing supporters of theirs, we buy gas right? Every one of us buys gas.

Back to the video, obviously no one was hurt. Tank big, car small. Stop. If that is enough reason to wish our troops dead... then there are certainly problems with the mind and thinking process of that individual.

mrbradshaw5 give me a fucking break. Iraq and so called "terorists" has nothing to do with 9/11. Check the internet there's full of evidence that U.S. is responsible for that. It's all about the fucking morons who leads the country. "They know the best".
Specially for you: http://zeitgeistmovie.com/
If you watch all of it you will find 9/11 facts. The movie is in 3 parts. About Gods, 9/11 and banks.
I'm feeling sorry for those U.S. people who are blinded by their own stupidity and/or wrong information about what's going on.
I hope my sweet motherland called Latvia will never be a target for resolving some "problems".

Eeeeh excuse me but what america is doing today is streghtening the hate of that terrorists (and many other people) against them, I didn't say that they(terrorist) have not to be judged and, maybe killed, but I'm not agreeing with the way of doing it. You know, there are not terrorists only in Iraq and Afghanistan, go invade Indonesia (and many other countries), they shelter also some al quaida peoples with certainly more proofs !

If you notice, all the other cars are quickly moving away from the collision. They are all doing this because they too ear what the Americans fear. A suicide attack. This kind of collision is not an uncommon way to sucker the troops into an ambush. Yes, the crash sucks and what appears to be a hit and run is a little different in a world where nut cases blow themselves up to kill innocent women and children in the name of a slanted interpretation of Islam. I agree, the original invasion of Iraq was wrong but at this time, a withdrawal would only cause more harm. Please support our troops. They are only doing what they believe is best. Radical Islam hurts everyone.

You might disagree with the war in Iraq. As a former US Marine and Desert Storm Veteran. I salute these young men and women of Marines,Air Force,Army and Navy for defending our freedoms as I had did for them. When you speak of how other countries hate us thats not necessarily the truth. Some people actually respect the US Troops for what they are doing but you must also realize yes we are in their country and we are occupying it, granted that will cause tension in any place in the world. But you hardly ever see the good side of war, you can blame the media for that part. Now back to the Video at hand was the Bradley at fault NOPE was the white car at fault no its called a accident. No one was killed during this accident so lets move on people.

Carry on.

Looks like a accident to me. Dont think it was planed. Not much the tanker could do after it happend. At least he backed off the car he could have just keeped on going right over it. Also any military convoy, Allways has the right of way. even in the USA. I am shure it was properly reported and dealt with. As far as the so called war goes. Its not a 9-11 thing its not even a american thing. Just like his daddy before him. Its a Bush thing. Power, Money, Oil, & Revenge for Sadam takeing the oil from the big oil corps in the first place. Remenber were the Bush family fortune was made. In Oil. Sadly the american people are stuck with it. Just as you are. So do not hate american people. Dont wish for the tankers death. we dont have much more control over this stuff, Than you do. :(

I agree with badpup, for the most part. We, the American people, were conned into an invasion of Iraq. Please don't hate us, and please forgive our army, they're just doing what they do best, and that's what they're told.

Although you're totally free to hate Bush. He's fair game.

Now, past politics and onto the vid. Yeah, that vehicle is an APC, which stands for "Armored Personnel Carrier," for those who don't know. That means there could be more than just a couple guys driving that thing, there could be quite a few more, and they've got to be somewhere as quickly as those treads can carry them. But they should have taken that turn wider. Just a little more to the right, and the driver of the car would have had a bad scare, not a totaled vehicle.

all i have to sat on the matter is this:

they couldnt just stop and try and help the man because they were most probably given orders to carry on.

war isnt great but like sd124 says in post 37. we live in a world where people do some crazy things that can harm alot of people and if an invasion is needed to stop these people then i agree that it was the right thing to do. THAT IS MY OPINION!

Im English and i fully support every soldier (whatever the nationality) that is helping us bring this radical way of thinking to an end. although many people think otherwise, we are actually trying to help these people.
