When liberals prosecute a war, bad things happen
How do you tell a mother that her son was slaughtered by a terrorist in a dirty night-shirt because he wasn't allowed to kill the terrorist first?
From WashingtonExaminer -- Several Taliban detainees who had been captured in February after being observed placing bombs in the culverts of roads used by civilians and military convoys near Kandahar were fed, given medical treatment, then released by American troops frustrated by a policy they say is forcing them to kick loose enemies who are trying to kill them.
This is what happens when dumb, military-hating liberals prosecute a war. You get stupid rules of engagement where we medicate, feed, and release our enemies with nice parting gifts.
I swear, I am more convinced now than ever that we need to pull completely out of Afghanistan and Iraq with haste and nuke 'em from orbit. If our military can't kill the enemy as the enemy tries to kill them, why are we there? This is pure and utter insanity! With rules of engagement like this, can anybody justify our continued presence there?
If I find out that these ROE's were put in place under Bush, then I will have lost all, ALL respect I ever had for him.
