the best ‘rule of engagement ‘ that I can think of is : Military - STOP giving your oath of allegiance and service to idiots civilians that are undeserving and unworthy of your sacred oath(s) - Start calling the shots ( literally ) Convene a renewed War Department that handles our military foreign affairs , not subservient to any clueless state department or feckless ‘chief executive ‘

Our enemies need to fear America if they choose to challenge or confront us . They need to feel the steel , not our pussy civ politicians brought to heel

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuah.

The enemy is running OUR SIDE of the fight. There is no need to wonder why we lose the war (whilst winning battles).

And he didn’t even mention Obama’s stupid rules about not damaging the “environment”.

For years I have advocated a very simple solution to the proliferation of stupid ROEs;

If you want to write an ROE you have to serve at least six months operating out of an isolated FOB. No such service not writing.

After all, should our ROEs be based on what is actually happening not what some REMF professor thinks is happening?

My father and Uncles who fought in WWII and my brother who fought in Korea all said the same thing. “When the fighting starts there are no rules.”

The problem is when we try to move beyond killing people and breaking things.

Any competent army kills people and breaks things well.

The best armies in the world have seldom ever been able to do more than that in the best of circumstances; the U.S in Japan and Alexander the Great and a few other times come to mind, but not many. IF you aren’t willing to kill everyone and break everything don’t try to conquer or neutralize territory.

The current ROE seem to be don’t be naughty to the transsexuals and don’t hurt anyone or break anything unless they’re spurned by obama and his Marxist cult.
