It is ashame that children usually get in the middle of things like this, but I know if I was in a war torn area with my family in the car, I would have stopped immediately at any check point.

I can't blame the soldiers. They were doing their job. Note to self: if soldier needs me to stop at a point. I stop.
It is the drivers fault for losing their life and leaving their children orphaned. When you live in a country where a war is residing, so save your own a$$ and your children you have to obey the ones with the weapons.

It was on the news here, yesterday in fact.

It is a very sad situation. And I feel for the Children. But I also understand the military in deciding to fire. They had tried to get the vehicle to stop by waving their arms and firing several warning shots into the air. The insurgents/terrorist have caused such a paranoia that innocent people are being killed because they are not stopping.

It's only going to get worse I'm afraid. All because one sect of the Sunni Muslims don't want to relinquish the control they had with Saddam.

This is really sad, but if the driver wasn't going to stop at a checkpoint, what else where the soldiers supposed to do?

Nothing to see here.

I read about this yesterday... it's such a terrible thing to happen to these poor kids. sad.gif

We don't know the exact situations, but I really have a hard time swallowing the "they had no other choice" excuse.

Poor children. This is so sad. How could the parent(s) do this to their own children? The statement said there is going to be an investigation, and I was wondering if it has been confirmed if the driver and front passenger were really the parents.

I feel sorry for the soldiers who have to do this also. Obviously they did what they had to do, but one can only imagine the lifetime worth of nightmares that they(and those children) will endure.

It's sad any way you look at it sad.gif

This thing happened in Ireland at a border crossing a few years ago.

some joy ridders would not stop ,the soldiers thought it was the ira or some group like them and opened fire.

I think they killed two or three teenagers,the soldiers faced charges of murder.

But as we are saying in this situation they had plenty warnings  from the soldiers and didnt stop ,what else could these soldiers do ,wait to get blown up

Oh well. If I was there, I would've done the same thing. They know they're supposed to stop. You will die before I will, simple as that. Too bad the kids were there to see it.

It is a horrible situation. I feel bad for everyone involved, especially the children.

To be blunt; with bombers blowing up checkpoints on an all to regular basis, I don't think I could fault the soldiers for doing what they did. It is a very unfortunate situation that could have been avoided.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

The statement also said that military officials extended their condolences for this "unfortunate incident" and were investigating.

"unfortunate incident"?!?
You know what?
That is just f---ed up. I hate it when they say something stupid like that. It wasn't "unfortunate" for the US soldiers, was it? They'll probably get some kind of reward. Poor children, though. crying.gif
