Try cranking up the volume a bit next time you watch the vid. And by the way, troops usually carry their water in camel backs or canteens. How old are you? Really...

Genius, I don't think they are going to toss out their canteens. So you are saying you know for a fact they guy has a whole stash of bottled water in the truck?

I'm older than you. Does that help you tailor your little childish insults?

No. Funny how you don't want to state your age. Your arguments hold no water. And yes or no, did you hear the troops laughing about how many kids they could get to chase after their truck? They obviously weren't doing it for the sake of making the kids work for the water. And the one holding the water was making sure that the cameraman was getting it all on film... All the while, they're both laughing like a couple of school bullies. Don't try and justify this indignity.

It is funny because it annoys you.

You are programmed to assume the worst because you are a San Francisco Liberal. So they are laughing? They are playing with the kids. You assume the guy is sitting on a stack of bottled water.

I heard that Yank troops have been known to toss in them though!!!

The troops may be playing with the kids, but the kids are not playing with them. They're bullying them with bottled water. How pathetic. And you're trying to justify this? More likely than not, those troops had that water for distribution. Because, as I said... troops keep their water in canteens and camel backs. NOT plastic bottles like that. We were never trained to keep Evian bottles in our cargo pockets.. Only CANTEENS AND CAMEL BACKS.

How do you know how many bottles of water they had? The kids don't need to chase it. That was their choice. There is no bullying. They are not forcing the kids to chase it. You want to assume the worst. I on the other hand, do not pretend to know from the video what the situation is. I'm looking at it objectively. If you want video of certain abuse and bullying I can post that so that you can compare. But all we have is this slice of video that doesn't really say anything but allows for your spin on it.

They are LAUGHING AT THE KIDS. The troops are getting a rise out of the kids' basic need for water.

To answer the original question, cruel, especially when some other grabs the bottle at the end.

Apparently someone doesn't seem to think it's cruel.

Lets face it, none of us are in posession of the facts. Perhaps the kid hadn't had any fresh water for days; perhaps he loved chasing lorries; who knows.
Handbags at dawn for those spoiling for a fight.

Exactly. The objectivity in viewing this has been spoiled by the set up. We are to assume these guys are sitting on piles of water and the kids have no access to any other water but this one bottle. I laugh at kids all the time. That alone doesn't make these guys bad. The adults they pass don't seem to care or notice. It would have been cruel if they didn't attempt to reward the kid at the end. I agree the ending was a little cruel but that wasn't his fault. The kids seemed to have plenty of energy and didn't look like Ethiopians.

How do you know they are teasing? The guy might have his last bottle of water and willing to give it away and rather then pick at random he makes them work for it. That's a concept for a San Francisco lib isn't it? I noticed the adults had no interest in it
if you really believe that i dont know what to say ... if he was "making them work for it" ... he would have given it to the kid who ran the 100 miles to get the damn water ... that kid didnt even end up getting the water ...

yeah and the idiot didnt have to dangle it off the back of the truck ... and if they were'nt doing it to taunt them then why were they laughing so much and thought it was so funny that the kid that was running didnt end up getting it?

i am not one to look at just the negatives but there is no way you can interpret that video than anything other than what it was ... its as$holes like that who help give americans a bad name

I think the kid just wanted free stuff, he didn't look like he was starving or dieing of thirst, and if he was that thirsty he wouldn't have been able to run like that and the other kids wouldn't have given up so fast if they were extremly thirsty. also, just a program on t.v other night showing troops drinking out of bottled water and using bottled water to fill camel-backs.
It was mean to tease, but I don't think that kid was suffering from lack of water, probably just wanted it so he could try and sell it.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

it was a bottle of water ... even if that was the case the morons throw it toward the kid at one of the few corners where there was a bunch of people ... theres another dozen Iraqies that hate us even more ... not the type of crap we should be doing while we are invading another country ... no matter if it was intended as being malicious or not we need to be smarter than that

Holly crap!! check out this evil bastard. He could have caused some kid to have a bump on the head if that soccer ball came down wrong. I think he kicked it too hard toward the kid also. This could have ended badly. I heard after this he challenged them all to a race for his last bottle of water. That ass. You see, this is why the world hates us.

I'm moving to San Francisco so I can understand how I feel about this.

im not putting a spin on anything

the idiot holds the water out of the back of the truck and starts laughing when all the kids start chasing him .. then he makes sure his other idiot friend is taping this stupidity

and then he said "you want water? here, keep running" ...

you're right theres nothing wrong with that
