Horrible Cordon. Shoot have been lit up early as fuck... but alas... ROE... hope the iraqis learned a lesson

This is how my Col died over there. One car parked on the main road all day.... dude just sweating in there. Finally see the convoy and got him.

This is how the West is expected to fight wars today. With one hand tied to our balls, and the other tied to a pamphlet with detailed info on RoE.

And while we bicker over the rules, our enemies are training their children for suicide bombings and school shootings.

We look really fucking stupid to them. I know this, they've told me this. They laugh at how we play by rules that they would never abide by; this defeats the purpose of RoE. The whole idea is that BOTH SIDES WILL ABIDE BY THIS SET OF RULES. If one side doesn't, the RoE and Geneva bullshit should be ignored.

Rules are for the civilized. Not the barbarians.

We've forgotten that things like the Geneva convetions were supposed to be followed by both sides, but in cases where one party doesn't follow them there must be no mercy. America isn't the greatest at following the Geneva convetions in my opinion, but they're a lot gentler than they need to be.

The only way to win against terrorists is to level and clear. Leave nothing to secure. No Bridges, no roads, no airports, no water, no food.

Kind of an direct correlation to how George Washington defeated the fucking Benedict Arnolds by not using conventional warfare. rules only work when they are needed by all groups. The moment that one doesn’t play by the rules then an unfair advantage is gained.

Yes, they laugh at us and that shit. But in the end if they poked us too hard we would fuck it up

Somebody didn't say their 'Hearts and Minds' prayer today...
