Arrow 560SEL crashing into 1992 Chevrolet Caprice in Iraq (Video clip)

1:06 to 1:28

Possible that US Security contractors shot up the 560SEL and it lost control?

I don't think the Mercedes lost control...

I think the US contractors murdered the occupants and the vehicle just drove unmanned

The whole time the video is playing, the contractors are doing drive by shootings of civilians

So, US Security contractors are people that randomly shoot into traffic for fun??? Or it is one of those "we felt our security was threatened" B/S things?

Genuinely want to know WTF is going on here...

US Security Contractors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Dem just Twits looking for innocents to kill. They are shooting at anyone and everything that moves. They would probably SUCK at real Hunting. Maybe OBAMA can Rectify this kind of CRAP.
ANY person that shots up a MERC, SHOULD be SHOT!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what I thought. Apparently it's a huge, +$100M a year industry, and it's growing exponentially.

I guess you folks heard that the Iraqi government did not renew the license for Blackwater to provide security services. That should shake things up.

This isn't about politics. People need protection but it must happen within the rule of law. Yes?

Absolutely. These guys are just a bunch of ex-military or paramilitary cowboys who are highly paid for their so called security services. Looks to me like just a bunch of murderous thugs with no morals or feelings of guilt who think they are above the laws of man and God. They should be made to answer for their crimes against humanity.

I have a handful of friends in the military (one of those things where once you have one you soon have many more). I've never met an officer who has anything nice to say about Blackwater.

Looks like they're just shooting in front of the vehicles, warning them not to come any closer. Suicide Bomer drivers usually are in cars and approach the mercenary's vehicles rather quickly, so those are warning shots. The clips with the merc just looks like the driver was suddenly struck with fear and vacuously crashed. The windshield doesn't have any bullet holes or other indicators of murder. Unless I didn't see it, can anyone pinpoint a frame where people are actually getting killed?
