Helicopter shot down, not an "accident"

An optimist is never pleasantly surprised.

Its a fact that over the pase decade we have lost more soldiers to mechanical failure than to the enemy...

This is no different.

since they just showed it on camera crashing, i'm going to go with "it was an accident"
(even though it probably doesn't matter that i saw it on the news because ALL american media lies)

Helicopters are complex, fragile, inherently unstable pieces of machinery that have probably killed more troops in non-combat situations than any other single machine used by the military -- just ask the Canadians. A desert immediately after a sandstorm is not the most benign environment in which to operate one, either.

Almost certainly an accident.

I know a guy who was an army reporter and he says that helicopters crash from mechanical failure way more than you'd think(and more than the military wants the public to know about).
