US Air Force helicopter by mistake shot a convoy of Iraqi security forces


According to him, the head of the local police, as well as the head of the administration, who were going to meet with the sheikh of the local tribe, came under fire.

At the same time, the command of the united antiterrorist forces of Iraq stated that a special operation was being conducted in the area to capture the terrorist, which was supported from the air by the forces of the international coalition. Already when it was completed, a grenade was thrown from a neighboring house to the security forces, after which a clash occurred.

On the way back, the military noticed a cluster of armed people from helicopters, “whose location was not agreed upon in advance,” and opened fire on them.

The unified command has commissioned an investigation of what happened.

          Yeah, superterrorist, for the sake of one barmaley, you need air support fellow
          under fire came the head of the local police, as well as the head of the administration, who were sent to meet with a sheikh of the local tribe.

          That’s the answer, they simply eliminated it.

              What kind of "mistake" are you talking about?
              The Americans said bluntly that they did everything right. A military operation was underway in that area, armed people were found whose whereabouts were not agreed upon, and they shied away. So that NO ERRORS. Pilots are also encouraged for the right actions. And of course, no apologies to the Iraqis, in the worst case, express condolences.

          At that, when Dad asked his grandfather how to attack, they say what they shouted, the grandfather answered and said, Hooray, forward the Slavs.
          To me, well, from the army, along with the dad, I have gone crazy, already, passed the exams, I entered the institute, I sit and declare that the Chuvashs are in fact Turkic. Grandfather said do not be smart and I found myself under the table.
          Since then, I firmly learned that if your dad is a rural blacksmith, then it’s better not to be smart with him, and the Chuvashs are Slavs, at least those in the Arkhangelsk province request

    There are enough fools everywhere. He worked somehow with truckers: Ukrainians, Russian-speaking Baltic states, and Belarus alone made a mess of it. So he winged his fellow tribesmen in vain, he says he drove all over Europe, Ukrainians everywhere with Balts, few in Belarus ... They answer him ... so it's good that you can find a job in your house, and he’s hiding an old man why the hell he creates these jobs ... Wow how everything in Europe to break. You don’t know what to think.

    a special operation was held to capture the terrorist, which was supported from the air by the forces of the international coalition
    Notice this is for ONE terrorist. And will they need Shikoko forces for one Russian soldier?

    Hundred % . Apparently the Iraqis pressed not those whom they should have got and so to speak for educational purposes.

    This is the most real version of what happened.

    It will somehow not be enough. That's when under Dabier, after that famous test tube at the UN, the British searched for WMDs somewhere in Basra, and the Americans in the rest of Iraq - then the Americans poured British into mistakenly, not weak. Then - pleased ... And now so-so, rather weak ...

    It is a pity that no one keeps statistics of these "mistakes". Over the past 30 years, they have already destroyed the population of a small country.

    Counted. Since 1945, 27 million have died in conflicts where America participated.
