Israeli military YouTube channel

So here’s the Israeli Defence Force YouTube channel. The video above is billed as “Israeli Airforce Strikes Rockets in Transit”. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit writes;

We were saddened earlier today that YouTube took down some of our exclusive footage showing the IDF’s operational success in operation Cast Lead against Hamas extremists in the Gaza Strip. Fortunately, due to blogger and viewer support, YouTube has returned some of the footage they removed.

I mean, I guess I’m disseminating propaganda. But hey, you can clearly see the rockets and the lorries and the little terrorists running around like ants, just before they disintegrate. Why would this be unsettling? It’s amazing how many there are, it’s like an entire level of “Call of Duty 4″. In fact Call of Duty 4 has a level that is exactly, eerily, like this. No one has yet left the comment “I could have done that”…

Below is how “Death From Above” looks in Call of Duty (go to around 2.29). It’s interesting that some of the related videos, linked to this video game footage on YouTube, is of real gun camera footage from Iraq and Afghanistan;
