US Pilot sings ‘Bye, Bye Miss American Pie’ as missile strikes target

The latest scandal to hit the US military is a video from the cockpit of an Apache helicopter in the 101st airborne division.

The video appeared on Liveleak.com and is already generating controversy for a US government that has had to deal with multiple scandals involving deplorable conduct of American troops in Afghanistan.

As the pilot closes in on the target, they release a missile.  The targets are the small white spots you can see moving around on the road.   The figures turn to run but moments before the missile strikes one of the pilots comes over the com singing the chorus to Don McLean’s, Bye, Bye Miss American Pie.

After the strike, another comment is heard, ‘nice’.

Is this really what we want our military to stand for?  Is this how we represent peace, justice, equality and liberty to the rest of the world?  Take care of our boys, bring them home, and end these nonsensical wars!
