    will not work on any person who has seen video of the incident.  The damn thing is on fire and rounds inside it are cooking off.  To go into that thing would be death.  Turns out being around it was death too.

    God I hate my government right now.

    I am a catastrophic success!

      .. why wasn't there a detachment there, creating a cordon, to keep civillians back while the ammo cooked off safely and/or the Apache's swung by to finish the job?

      The fact that the US swung by, grabbed their guys, and LEFT - that's the crime.  If they were really going to finish off the Bradley, they should have made an effort to make people aware of that, keep them away from it while it was done.  Instead, they just shot it and if you were nearby, too bad.
