Default General Tightens Afghan Rules of Engagement

Yep, Gen. Petraeus has tightened the rules of engagement for all NATO troops operating in Afghanistan. By the time these rules perk through the chain of command to LTC level, US troops will not be able to shoot back until someone is shot. This is PC bullcrap at its worst.

i wanna puke.

Afghanistan War: Petraeus Tightens Rules of Engagement - Yahoo! News

Now, rather than loosen the rules of engagement as many would have preferred, General Petraeus has tightened them. Under General McChrystal, NATO forces were prohibited from calling in air strikes or artillery fire on village compounds where the enemy might have been mixed in with civilians. Going several steps better, General Petraeus has reportedly expanded the ban on air strikes and artillery fire to all types of buildings, tree-lined areas and hillsides where it is difficult to distinguish who is on the ground. Although the military has kept much of the directive's fine print classified for operational security, other measures are said to include a curb on small-arms fire that has yielded a steady trickle of fatalities at checkpoints and in night raids on private residences.

We can't wait two more years for them to stop $uck'n around over there, this is bull$hit. We need to get the kids out of there and drop a nice French bomb on the entire Middle East. How do they expect to make any progress if they don't kill as many of those opium growing bastards as possible. I think some people in Washington need their a$$es kicked good and hopefully November won't be too late for it.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.

I still think Afcrapistan would make a nice shiny spot to reflect some of that darned global-warming heat, if it was nuked properly, meaning very thoroughly. Not many places could be more peaceful than a glowing, radioactive cemetary.
