STOP TREATING OUR TROOPS LIKE TERRORISTS

I have followed how our troops have been treated on the battlefield since 9/11 and been appalled as to how we treat them over and over! We might as well line them up and boil them in oil. Some in the media and congress would be happy with that. Many of the current rules of engagement for our military only end up compromising and killing our soldiers again and again.
Let’s taste a few of these empowering rules. If you are fighting Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan and are charged with shooting Taliban bad guys and you come upon some, make sure they haven’t put their weapon down for even a moment. You can’t shoot them if they have. According to the Obama administration Rules of engagement, that would be rude and violate the Islamic serial killer’s rights. The sensitivity continues. If you happened to capture some terrorists don’t you dare use any harsh language or speak roughly around them. That is also against the rules. Maybe our troops could offer a Bible study to captured Islamic terrorists but of course that would be hate speech wouldn’t it?
