    President Obama has decided to give our enemies rights they don't deserve in my opinion.

    He's reading them their rights and giving them a chance at a lawyer so that their civil rights aren't stepped on....rights that they don't really have because I'm afraid Mr. President they aren't US citizens after all.

    So the result is more enemies are being killed instead of captured.

    This means a loss of actionable intelligence but it does eliminate a threat as well as save us the trouble of taking care of these bad guys if they end up being shipped to GITMO.

    Strange how a policy that on the surface which seems humane only ends up killing more of the enemy then Bush's so-called brutal cowboy policies in the past.

    So...what do you guys say? Kill or Capture.

    What do you think?

    Been saying it for some time, now. Kill. The troops have enough to worry about without this crap. It's war. The enemy dies.




    I wonder why we hear of so few captures, lately?

    You're not hearing much of anything because of the mess the war's in.

    Obama is clueless when it comes to the art of war and foreign policy. His poor understanding of history and foreign relations are being shown in all of their true colors. He is totally inept and has no business being the front man for the USA.

    Personally....I would kill first dependent on the situation because the last thing I want is one of these folks eventually getting back to the Muslim street so they can kill again.

    All of us who've been there know that.

    Problem is the guys going to the sandbox these days say it's next to impossible for them to defend themselves because of "New" ROEs the Obama administration has ushered in.....so can it.

    I tend to believe my friends more then anything I see on the internet. Especially by some Arab asshole named Dahar Jamail.

    There should be rules but not something that intentionally ties one hand behind your back and shows more concern for the enemy then your own troops.
