"I can command my vehicle. I can keep it from being attacked. What I have not been trained to do is look over my shoulder to see whether an American is shooting at me. ... I will never forget that noise as long as I live. It is a noise I never want to hear again. There was no gap between the bullets. I heard it and I froze. The next thing I knew the turret was erupting with white light everywhere, heat and smoke. There was a boy of about 12 years old. He was no more than 20 metres away when the Yank opened up. He had absolutely no regard for human life."
