Your tax dollars at work...

Update: YouTube took this video down, so you don't get to throw up watching these U.S. servicemen whoop it up while they watch some Iraqi troops beat the life out of people.

This is just awful:

Shia Iraqi soldier beat Sunnis as US trainers watch

These are the kinds of things that Bush never could even grasp that could happen. To see these young troops of ours acting like this - but - even more - put into these situations, is appalling. I support the troops, and I support their immediate withdrawal. These people are not trained to police a country and nation build. It is time to get out of this thing - nothing we are going to try is going to work. Insane people like Dick Cheney only want to stay for the oil. Idiots like Bush are even harder to figure out. Those two are a lethal combination for our future.

I will try to find it - that was an American patrol in support of an Iraq patrol basically cheering the Iraqis on as they beat several people to a pulp and said things like "they pulled a Rodney King on him" etc. From a British news show.
