** WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS VERY GRAPHIC MATERIAL **
We play our war style video games everyday and think nothing of it. But we often forget that things like this actually happen around the world and are tragedies.
Here is leaked video from a US Apache Helicopter in 2007. It shows two Reuters news staff, Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen, being killed in Eastern Baghdad.
The video was leaked by an anonymous group called WikiLeaks. Wikileaks is a website launched in December 2006 that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive documents from governments and other organizations, while preserving the anonymity of its sources.
The video is shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site – which many Modern Warfare 2 video game players can relate to as the Chopper Gunner.
It’s a shame that there is no peace without war.
