This is a disgrace.
WRAL Raleigh reports on a video first posted on Facebook, thought to be shot by a U.S. soldier in Iraq, which shows the soldier taunting two young Iraqi children:
“The 30-second clip shows the two boys standing side by side on a dusty road, and the photographer asks them if they’re gay and engage in homosexual acts. The boys smile and nod, but it’s unclear whether they understand English. ‘Are you going to grow up to be a terrorist? Yeah! All right! Cool! Yeah, terrorists! Woo!’ the photographer says. The boys smile and give a thumbs-up signal. ‘Are you going to plant IEDs?’ the photographer asks. ‘Yeah, awesome!’ The older boy apparently realizes at this point that they are being mocked, and he holds down the younger boy’s arm. The video was posted May 14 on the Facebook page of Robert Rodriguez and titled ‘future gay terrorists.’ Rodriguez describes himself on Facebook as a soldier living in Fairbanks, Alaska. An Army spokesman said a Spc. Robert Rodriguez is stationed at Fort Wainwright, outside of Fairbanks. It’s unclear whose voice is heard on the video, but in posting the video to Facebook, Rodriguez wrote, ‘I was bored in Iraq. So I kept myself entertained.’
Hey Rodriguez next time you are bored and need to be entertained…..GO FUCK YOURSELF!
