I've never heard of that. That's a really good idea! Too bad the morally superior group put a stop to it.

There are NO rules in war....or love.

The Liberals are going into a survival mode. That means like rats they are beginning to feast on their own kind. Obama the final Icon of the American Liberal movement is flaming out. Please do not interfere with their self destruction.

Mark: I entered the Army via the Warrant Officer Flight prg. In 1979. There is OPFOR training for almost EVERYONE(at least there was then). Even "Flight" personnel needed to Identify enemy aircraft and such.

Sure..but try to take in consideration one thing:during the yugo wars, my knowledge of several domestic and foreing weaponery saved my life several times and maximized my performance on the field.Just finished the ammo?no problem, I can pick enemy weapons.My enemy has a better weapon in terms of accuracy/Reliability?I'll pick those to neutralize him.

True.There si no such a thing as a fair way to kill a man if you nave to.You can only think if you rally have to do it, once you made your choice, it si only ordinary routine.

actually there are "Rules of War" unfortunately our current enemies do not follow them ie beheading P.O.W's, intentionally targeting civilians, using human shields. However God Forbid one of our Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, or Air Force personnel are caught doing anything remotely controversial then its time to throw the book at them. Case in point when the Marines dead checked a injured fighter in Fallujah with a reporter/cameraman right behind him, when an Army Officer(my former Batt. Commander) roughed up an Iraqi Policeman(suspected of supplying intel to AQIQ) and fired his 9 mm next to the guys head into a clearing barrel getting said guy to canary up. When Marine Snipers urinated on dead Taliban fighters(Hmm isn't that what they teach dehumanizing your enemy to make it easier for us on our psyche to kill them). Maybe if they banned all the damn reporters from these combat zones, untied our Militaries hands and let them pursue and destroy completely our enemies then maybe we wouldn't have lost the three Seals on Team 10 in Afghanistan, maybe these wars would have ended in total victory instead of long drawn out occupations with police force like missions, maybe if we went back to walking softly, but carrying that big ass stick we wouldn't have all these damn problems across the globe.

Sean,..your correct, and painfully so. This is why I resigned My commission after Desert Storm, because we weren't allowed to "finish" the job..

and thats a damn shame you Nitestalkers are the creme de le creme of our Aviators, who knows maybe it was the Lord who made you do it so you didn't end up being one of our Aviators getting hit out there and being unable to hit back because of politics or fear of prosecution by our own country.
