    What is the need for a Department of Defense if soldiers are told the following:

    “Patrol only in areas that you are reasonably certain that you will not have to defend yourselves with lethal force,” the laminated card reads. For a soldier who has traveled halfway around the world to fight, that’s like telling a cop he should only patrol in areas where he knows he won’t have to make arrests. “Does that make any f–king sense?” Pfc. Jared Pautsch. “We should just drop a f–king bomb on this place. You sit and ask yourself: What are we doing here?”

    When we reward troops for not defending themselves – and take away their air and artillery support – that appears to be exactly what is going on.

    And a C-I-C that as a cheerleader for the Terrorists told the world that our
    "troops are air-raiding villages and killing civilians"!

    Why do we have a C-I-C that wants the enemy to kill our troops?

    An occupation sure is hard on people who think war is nothing but killing.

    Tell that to these people..
    You never heard of this have you...

    "The following text is the second fatwa originally published on February 23, 1998, to declare a holy war, or jihad, against the West and Israel.
    It is signed by Osama bin Laden, head of al Qaeda; Ayman al-Zawahiri, head of Jihad Group in Egypt, and several other Islamic terrorist groups."
    'The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military --
    is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim.

    This is in accordance with the words of Almighty God, "and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together," and "fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God."
    We -- with God's help -- call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan's U.S. troops and the devil's supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.
