    ...what stereotype do YOU have about war veterans exactly? I'm assuming that's what you are implying.

    What was the Korean yelling at the soldier?

    Just curious, b/c I see an old man taunting a much bigger and much younger man.... not too wise if ya ask me.

    So, until I know what was being said.... I am holding judgement.

    This looks like a hit piece to me :eusa_whistle:

    *No pun intended*

    I don't think anyone is looking to justify it, but maybe it would help to understand both sides of the issue.

    Although nothing has been mentioned about what could have caused the two to argue in the first place, I agree. The young veteran, if he is a veteran, isn't really engaging much, but the old man seems to be going out of his way to antagonize a larger and clearly volatile young man. I even heard at one point that the old man had produced a camera, though I may be wrong.

    This piece of 'journalism' seems a bit too biased towards the old man, and may be attempting to paint the U.S military in a bad light. Because although the blurb attached to the YouTube video claims that after the event neither wanted to press charges, the 'journalist' should've at least asked what had caused the initial friction. Or if he wasn't responsible for capturing the footage, at least say he was as much in the dark as the audience.

    Hmmm... Something doesn't quite add-up here.
