War Crime

Stan Goff comments: "The “tell” is in the audio.

When the pilot  asks permission to fire, he reports a large number of people… not  armed people. People. And permission is granted instantly. This is  an indication that the mission guidance is to shoot anyone who is in  the street. This is a clear war crime, and one that begins with the  commander's stated intent in the operations order. The pilot's  exclamation of satisfaction, “Aw dude!” at the end just underlines how  this casual sadism comes to dominate the psyches of those who are part  of a military occupation force, and how the ground reality become  “race war.”" 

Stan Goff retired as a Master Sergeant from the US Army in 1996, his  last assignment being 3rd Special Forces Group. He entered military  service January, 1970, and his first assignment was as an infantryman  with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam. His service took him to  seven more conflict areas after Vietnam, including Guatemala, Grenada,  El Salvador, Peru, Colombia, Somalia, and Haiti. His assignments  included 2nd Ranger Battalion, 1st Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger  Regiment, 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, 7th Special  Forces, the Jungle Operations Training Center, and the US Military  Academy at West Point, where he taught military science.
