  1. how wonderful to know that the marvelous US forces are fighting evil in the
    world. Why don’t they send them to Afghanistan, the US has been there since 9/11
    and stil have won no war.

  2. Martha, it is not possible to win a war against guerilla fighters, they disappear into the local community and it is impossible to tell them from the friendlies. Unfortunately the ‘friendlies’ are either under threat of death or are supporting the guerillas, so getting information is not easy if you are to abide by the ‘rules of war’. The guerillas do not wear uniforms or stand in a pitched battle, they rely on ‘strike and run’ tactics, a regular army cannot get at them in a fire fight.

    How would you suggest that your troops get at these guerilla fighters?

    This commander is to be congratulated on making a field decision to enter the building instead of remaining tied by Washingtons’ rules of non-engagment. If all commanders and pilots were allowed to make field decisions then we may see some real progress.
