US - GUN CAMERA FOOTAGE ; 'KILLING FIELDS' AFGHANSTAN (english)
26 Feb 2003
The FPF reluctantly offers a revolting little piece of "Gun camera"-footage from US pilots in Afghanistan, which also is used as an instruction film. Defenitely this way of murdering human beings in a kind of "turkey-shooting", is absolutely NOT "fighting terrorism" but breeding it !

Dear Madam, Sir or colleague,

While covering a couple of wars in my 40 years as a foreign correspondent, I often wondered : Do the people I work for really want to know, see and hear reality ? How the world also is "pacified" by the Armed Forces of the United States, some 'fellow-travellers and it's few bullied and bribed "Allies" ?

Defenitely this way of murdering human beings in a kind of "turkey-shooting", is absolutely NOT "fighting terrorism" but breeding it !

The US-Government and its few "Allies" are turning themselves and most of their friends into 'untouchables', the pariah's of the world !

There are two URL's and the file is 149 MB, so it may take a minute or two to download the file, of which the first also gives technical information :

The second URL for the US 'Killing Fields' reality :

What you see is according to international law a war crime, but do judge for yourself pls. : there's NO fair trial; they are just killing human beings !

What would you do, if strangers are killing, and keep trying to kill, you and your family ?

You see ? I know too, because as a correspondent - from Vietnam to the Gulf and M-East - I've seen some wars.

And as a Dutchman I'm utterly ashamed about the Dutch governments which support this Gunship- diplomacy which has turned to terrorism on a global scale.

This is not foreign policy or 'Fighting Terrorism'
but BREEDING it !

Henk Ruyssenaars*


The FPF makes it a point of distinguishing between the governments, about which we are often very critical, and the People of a country !

* The Dutch author worked globally for 40 years as an independent journalistc.q. foreign correspondent, for many international printed and A/V-media. From Scandinavia to Vietnam, as correspondent in Latin America, (Chile '71-'74), and 10 years in North/South Africa and the Middle East. While being accredited
as N-Africa & M-East correspondent - based in Tunisia for ten years, sometimes reporting for the BBC too. Because of journalistic research declared "Persona
non Grata" five times by different governments in East and West.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST !
