American soldiers crush an Iraqi man’s car for looting some wood. The man is a taxi driver, his car was his livelihood.

I’m reminded of a scene from Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five in which the Germans shoot an American prisoner of war for picking up a children’s doll in the smoldering wreckage of Dresden.
