Troops to retreat if firefights involve homes? WTF?
I was baffled today as I read the story on MSNBC about US to curb firefights inside Afghan homes.
So if we get shot at from someone inside a home we are supposed to break contact.
Since the enemy has not been real good about lining up like the colonial era british what the fuck are we doing over there?
This is a great addition to my briefings. I am going to my deployment readiness processing this week and will be in-country before xmas. By then we will probably only be allowed to engage with nerf guns at a range of no less than 100 meters.
And they wonder why troops keep getting killed over there, "you cant return fire if hostels are firing from cover, run away and risk getting shot in the back.” Give me a fucking break, can they not imagine what the world would be like if we never fired at someone in a dwelling during WWII? These liberal ass clowns disgust me.
Afghanistan is Barack's Vietnam. I just pray that we don't lose thousands of troops.

reminds me of vietnam, how in the fuck can you win a war when you dont attack?!!! If we cant win, i dont see a damn reason to play the damn game! China and russia told us we couldnt invade, that made the whole thing pointless unless we were going to stay there forever. Same thing in korea.
The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
