if there is any inkling that one of those guys has a weapon, you take him out... you take his 'posse' out. i guarantee you if you ask the soldiers if they would act the same and do the same thing again, each one of them would say yes.
its easy to judge a soldier's actions while we're sitting in our comfy chair at home with a cup of coffee in our hands... but when you are in the war and have a second to make a life or death decision, you go with your gut and take out any possible threat.
a man with an 'rpg' is a threat, regardless if he's walking in the street with others who arent carrying weapons.

that still doesnt account for why they took out everyone else in the area, and why they further went on to engage a second time.
