    Setting a bad example - Humvee driving in Baghdad

    Probably not the best way to act when representing your country.

    That's... um...

    What the hell??

    No need to guess which nationality was driving that. Just because they invaded doesn't mean they can ram people. I half expected the driver to run over the pedestrian walking down central reservation.

    And not even buses are above bullying...

    It's weird how it stops before we see the Humvee meet the tractor...

    Umm actually it's for everyone safety that they insist cars move out of the way immediately, it's the slow-moving and stopped vehicles that are most prone to getting hit with an RPG or IED. Better a dented bumper than multiple dead bodies. And if you watch carefully, the people who know what they're doing anticipate it and move out the way ahead of time... they're the smart ones who know that if that Humvee gets hit right behind them, they're going up in flames as well. Funny how the "freedom fighters" kill more of their own people than they do the "BASTARD AMERICAN INVADERS"

    Read the side mate, at first I thought the same but they can't slow down to a halt or similar due to the chances of a insurgent attack, and this is going to be the only side I proberly ever join sides with the Armerican army but he did seem to slow down before "Ramming" them..

    Fair point. I just find it quite odd, that's all.

    This is one of your most idiotic comments, ever.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    I think you are grossly overestimating the average use of rear view mirrors in these type of countries...

    Do the towels block the rear view?
