It is time we stop playing the "Patsy" with them. It is no great secret that Iran is behind much of the "insurgents" thru supplies, manpower, etc.
We shouldn't have to pretend to be dumb and blind! Who are we anyhow?
We may have the World's Most Powerful Army, and yet so politically inept in handling the result of use!
I feel the same as you. You don't go to war to shake hands. You go to war to KILL THE ENEMY on sight!! I hope and pray that the army has been given new instructions to actually kill the enemy. Political corruptness does not win wars. CO
Political correctness is directly responsible for most US casualties in OIF.
From day 1, we've refrained from displaying the flag when crossing the Kuwait-Iraq border. We've not returned fire when being fired upon from mosques. We let Moqtada al-Sadr get away and let his forces fight another day.
If we don't change the ROE to give PC the boot, we're toast.
Bottom line ... our most dangerous enemies are the enemies within. We need to silence the Frankfurt School minions in the media, the Gramsci disciples in the DemocRAT party, and the one-time recipients of KGB support in Hollywood and academia once and for all. Even if it takes suspending habeus corpus to do it.
