    Of course there are alternatives ...

    Davidbfpo,

    I appreciate your following this issue. Like me, you have been interested in it for a while.

    But the commentary is flawed. Of course we have alternatives. Easy? No. It would...

    Appearing on the SWC ...

    Has nothing whatsoever to do with the legitimacy or credibility of the report. SWC didn't report it, Brad Thor at Big Government reported it. This report has been adequately questioned in this...

    Blunder

    This is a blunder of gargantuan proportions. As I said in a post myself (because I saw this coming), the criminals must all be killed, the drug rings marginalized and it made so dangerous that they...

    No, Fuchs ...

    You are wrong. You have a habit of making statements for which there is no basis in fact.

    SWAT teams would not in fact concur with your assessment. In the U.S. law enforcement is still...

    Concerning Schmedlap's point ...

    We have a successful history of treating participants in the fight the same way regardless of whether they are carrying a weapon.

    Refined my position

    Braun makes interesting comments. I am intrigued by them. I guess I have refined my position a bit after studying this more. If it can be shown that this incident violates the ROE, I am at a loss...

    Ken White. To be sure some of this looks like over-exuberance, but I am also assuming that this didn't come out of the blue. As Cavguy said, there was likely TIC earlier leading to this exchange. ...
  9. Micromanaging the military and other things

    Ken, I'm glad to see you say that about micromanaging the military. I can't comment on lessons learned from Vietnam, and I'll leave to you where the Army picked it up. I certainly see reflections...
  10. Yawn ...

    Okay, so there were a lot of people preoccupied with other parts of the Kunar Province, including Kamdesh. So there were some moderately incompetent people in charge, or people who didn't man their...

    I could have filled in the blanks for the commentary with other examples and cite specific sources. They may or may not have done a good job of sourcing their objections. Leaving that aside, you...

    Fallujah never had that many residents. It simply isn't big enough.

    Ways to Haiti

    Schemdlap,

    I don't know any more than the next guy, but I would try the Red Cross or Samaritan's Purse (Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham organization). They are usually at the front of such...

    For this discussion board, but I'll play along too since someone else started this.

    As for dear Pat, he isn't senile and his views make perfect sense within the context of his overall theology and...

    Where do we get these troops, you might ask? Easy.

    We stop the stupid and wasteful MEUs, which are nothing but a chance for a Battalion of Marine infantry to get drunk in yet another port city...

    Old news

    The reporting is just catching up with the situation. This is not new, nor is it news. Kandahar is troublesome. The answer is not to redeploy troops to Kandahar from the villages. The answer is...

    Niel, there are two options for me. I might soon become very much a pro-Army blog if things work out. My son it appears isn't going to re-enlist in the Marines, but an Army recruiter is after him...

    I'm trying to think of where that might have appeared in the posts. W.R.T. massing of troops I don't think so, but I'll have to go back and look. Not pertinent to the topic.

    As for Wanat, I...

    Put the bottle down and back away, Ken. You've had too much to drink (and in the middle of the day, no doubt).
