Petraeus to Modify Afghanistan Rules of Engagement, Source Says (Finally Wanna Win?)

That's the only way it can be done.

Right now the rules of engagement for soldiers in a land where the enemy intermingles with women and children should be to fire first and ask questions later but is instead a far cry from that. Perhaps if the people understand they'll be taken out for even lifting their arms in the presence of soldiers, they'll start turning in the cowards to be dealt with by authorities.

Right now, they practically need an executive order to draw their weapons, and with Obama on the golf course so much, they're hard to get.. You would think we learned this 'fighting with one hand tied behind our backs' doesn't work back in Vietnam and in Iraq...

But not when liberal governance is involved and yes, that group even contains George Bush.

This was pretty much the policy when he was president as well, not to mention hauling soldiers into court everytime some Muslim made up some lie after a firefight and Time magazine printed them as fact...Haditha...

A military source close to Gen. David Petraeus told Fox News that one of the first things the general will do when he takes over in Afghanistan is to modify the rules of engagement to make it easier for U.S. troops to engage in combat with the enemy, though a Petraeus spokesman pushed back on the claim.

Troops on the ground and some military commanders have said the strict rules -- aimed at preventing civilian casualties -- have effectively forced the troops to fight with one hand tied behind their backs.

The military source who has talked with Petraeus said the general will make those changes. Other sources were not so sure, but said they wouldn't be surprised to see that happen once Petraeus takes command.

Petraeus spokesman Col. Eric Gunhus disputed the claim Friday, telling Fox News it's too soon to tell whether Petraeus would change the current rules. But he said it is one of many issues he'll take under consideration during his assessment after he's confirmed and after he takes over command in Afghanistan.FOXNews.com - Petraeus to Modify Afghanistan Rules of Engagement, Source Says

  1. If they follow through and let these killers loose on these crazy mad Muslims. We should have nuked the poppy fields in 2002 and these men and women woulda been home in 2003. Funny how libs want to win wars when they're theirs but when they're conservatively run they do everything they can to subvert progress. Bush's largest mistake was not prosecuting for treason. Now theres' no boundaries.


Some rules: No leftwing attacks nor Obama supporters so don't waste you're time & especially mine. All 99% others welcome to have your say.
