“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out

Here's the latest idea from the Obama administration to minimize civilian casualties in war zones....try not to choke on your gum when you start laughing.....

From Washington Examiner -- A proposal to grant medals for "courageous restraint" to troops in Afghanistan who avoid deadly force at a risk to themselves has generated concern among U.S. soldiers and experts who worry it could embolden enemy fighters and confuse friendly forces.

"Courageous restraint" is code for cowardice and indecision...which is precisely how our liberal overlords who were raised in the hazy dope parties of the sixties see our military men and women.

Soldiers have only two responsibilities....kill as many people as possible and then break all their stuff. You can't ask a soldier to not shoot when he feels threatened, even if the threat may be civilian. In case you've forgotten, the dirty, middle-east barbarians we're fighting deliberately dress as civilians to confuse our soldiers and get them to hesitate for a split second. I'd rather a soldier err on the side of preserving his own life and then apologize for collateral damage than hesitate and get killed himself.

I swear, this has to rank in the top 5 worst ideas I've ever heard. A medal for not fighting.....please!

Unimaginable! This sounds like something from the movie, "Idiocracy". If this comes to pass maybe I'll take my medals and through them ala John Kerry.

The nation's IQ and certainly thst of NATO is approaching single digits.

I choked on my gum and required the Heimleich. From someone at least dressed as civilian.
