The US army is showing images of troops in action in Iraq on YouTube, possibly in an attempt to popularise the war. 

The video clips, which include troops bombing a car, are shown on the MNFIRAQ channel on YouTube.
A statement on the channel reads: "MNF-I established this YouTube channel to give viewers around the world a 'boots on the ground' perspective of Operation Iraqi Freedom from those who are fighting it.
"Video clips document action as it appeared to personnel on the ground and in the air as it was shot. We will only edit video clips for time, security reasons and for over disturbing or offensive images."
