    Well, you'd better be pretty quick on the draw. cuz if I knew him, I’d be lining up a shot too. And my bullets are bigger than the ones in a m-16, it wouldn’t take too many.

    Beretta 96fs, .40 W&S. carry Winchester 160 gr. STX or SXT (don’t remember, but they are the successor to the black talons. they dont make either anymore)

    ppl suck

    Oh come on, it's an animal. I don't see you guys complaining about the innocent civilians that get killed everyday because of the war.

    You guys really need to reevaluate...

    Uh... and what makes this site credible?

    I don't see any date or proof really that this was done by US soldiers.


    The site in itself... full of links to Porn, kind of kills the credibility.... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


    Maybe if it was on CNN or something, yea, but a site full of porn links. I doubt it.

    it's an animal. and we aren't? we aren't animals that kill and destroy just for fun? not like the dog, who kills to eat, or out of fear, or to protect itself, or pups.

    i'd say we are very often more animals than any other animal on the planet

    The reasons you pointed out are all the reasons why humans act the way they do. However, we are not animals the way dogs are animals. We have the abililty to think, I doubt the dog was even conscious of the fact that it was a dog. While humans have done horrible things, we have also done some wonderful things.

    The dog dying is sad, but I think you are placing far too much value on the life of the dog when there are far more important things to consider in this war.

    if your going to kill a hurt dog thats one thing. (notice it was all read leeding before the video started.) But for godsakes.. you are point blank range if your going to have to put a animal down do it right.. thats possible the sadest thingthere is a guy coudnt do it in one shot. sigh.

    Well, no, in all reality, I wouldn't shoot a guy who shot some dog. I wouldn’t shoot anybody unless for justifiable reason. and even then, i would probably default to my martial arts rather than pull a gun(unless faced with leathel force). i never, NEVER want to draw down on another human being.

    "However, we are not animals the way dogs are animals."

    No, we aren't. if we were, we wouldn't just shoot some animal cuz we could.

    “We have the ability to think, I doubt the dog was even conscious of the fact that it was a dog."

    so, level of conscious, intellect, and sentience determine whether an animals killing is acceptable?

    'While humans have done horrible things, we have also done some wonderful things."

    Yea, true. We have done incredible, wonderful things.

    “I don't see any date or proof really that this was done by US soldiers.”

    It doesn't matter to me if it was a U.S. soldier or not, or when or where it happened. The point isn't who did it, but that it was done.

    "hits with shovel electrickpirate" martial art that.

    Its sad yes. Its a dog yes. On my uncles farm we had to go coyote hunting because they would mess up the small livestock. Wild dogs have been killed for hundreds and hundreds of years.


    Im not condoning this im just pointing out te other side.

    Once again I've as I've said already - this is a really sad incident, and obviously the soldier (we don't know if he really is in Iraq, or from the US) is mentally disturbed to do something like that.

    But, I don't like the fact that you are giving this little incident so much attention when in the large scale of things, this incident is not really that important, especially when pertaining to Iraq.

    LOL, thought someone would just jump on the martial arts comment! :) hahaha

    we need to lighten up.

    ok, as for shooting coyotes cuz they’re wrecking the farm, fine, im cool with that. its a good enough reason.

    and in my opionion, a shovel is a lethel weapon, so i wouldnt use martia larts, id use the 40 cal. semi auto i carry. LOL

    i've killed animals myself.

    you have no info. for all you know that could of been a wild dog. (just as bad).

    i had the bad judgement of watching another man cut off that reporters head. that did happen in iraq. That is something to feel sick about. too many horrible things have/are happeing overseas. some us (US) and some others.. so.. thats alli have to say.

    well i just dl this yesterday, http://my.so-net.net.tw/sirwang/fur.wmv
    its shows people in china i think killing animals for their fur industry. VERY disturbing video. so i have cautioned you guys already.
    Well i know what im not getting anyone after that. those fur mink stuff....

    in regards to the video, well yea im sure its just an animal, but to kill a defenseless dog is just wrong. Well i have seen some video with ameriacans killing civilians point blank, which was recorded on cnn.
    harsh reality of the real world....
