How do you identify the target?

When I see these videos on youtube, I wonder how the military is identifying these targets on the ground. All I see in the video is some cars driving on the road not engaged in any hostile actions. Its not obvious in the video why these are targets. Lets say these vehicles were driven by the Taliban, but were being used to transport wounded to a hospital as a makeshift ambulance. What it still be ok to fire on these vehicles?

When I look at these videos, it doesnt make any sense to me.

I looked at a couple of the videos and wonder the same. In one it looked like a man about three times taller than the buildings and they blew away four city blocks to get him.

After that one I closed the link.

Are we being photo-shopped?

Sorry guys, but you might want to ask this on one of the many military forums on the Web.

Military tactics, unless they can be used defensively by the average Joe on the street, are off topic here.
