The deadly price of politically correct rules of engagement

War is nasty, brutal and costly. In our latest wars, many of the casualties suffered by American troops are a direct result of their having to obey rules of engagement created by politicians who have never set foot on — or even seen — a battlefield. Today’s battlefield commanders must be alert to the media and do-gooders who are all too ready to demonize troops involved in a battle that produces noncombatant deaths, so-called collateral damage.

    The solution is to place a war zone entirely under military rule then give the media the falmi treatment for false news and
    Giving aid and
    Comfort to the enemy. If war is required then let the professionals do what has to
    Be done and prosecute up to and including capital punishment,any news presenters who get in the way
