"Smile nigger! You're on Candid Camera!"

The title to this post comes from something the soldier on the video says to an Iraqi kid riding a bike nearby.

Needless to say, there is lots of talk about "huntin' feral mooj", along with the usual assortment of use of terms like "nigger", "cocklicker", and "fuckstain". Oh, let's not forget another bit of "witty" verbosity: "I'll send you to Paradise with your fourteen virgins...you son of a bitch."

The Zeitgeist in the US has traditionally been hostile toward those of Arab descent, so in a way I'm not particularly shocked by the content of this video. We'll just chalk this one up to yet another example of how NOT to win the hearts and minds of the colonized.
