It sounds like typical overkill to me. For instance, if a car with 1 Iraqi is driving towards a U.S. Base and it looks suspicious the air probably turns black with bullets, or if a suspected insurgent ducks into a Baghdad alley every soldier in the vicinity probably unloads half a clip.Quote by: ise
My feeling is they're nervous and they want to make sure what they are firing at doesn't live to come at them again.
Either that or they are the absolute WORST marksmen on the planet.
I would imagine they would filter out the "collateral damage" parts of that estimate and average bullets to bodies. But then again, if the numbers are from our own military I automatically judge them to be highly suspect.is this 250,000 figure based on every dead iraqi, including women and children?
or is it based on certified self-declared insurgentists, home grown or imported?
