The Enemy Within February 16, 2010

One of the most maddening things about the liberal mind is this notion of fairness.

I could rant for days on this but today it’s just about how fairness and the war on terror don’t mix. I was reading this story this morning and buried down deep is this little nugget.

US Marines said they are constrained by strict new rules of engagement that make their task more dangerous. Under the rules, troops cannot fire at people unless they commit a hostile act or show intent.

Corporal Travis Anderson, 20, from Iowa, said his platoon had repeatedly seen Afghan fighters dropping their guns into ditches before melting away into the civilian population.

“It’s hard to fight a war like this,” he said. “They’re using our rules of engagement against us.”

It is unconscionable that we would send our soldiers to battle and handicap them like this.

This can only be the work of subversive elements within our own government that secretly want the United States to fail.

When an avowed enemy tells you they want to take over your country and either kill you and or convert you to their religion, I don’t think we should be so worried whether they still have a gun in their hands when we shoot them.

I remember hearing the saying ‘Better dead than Red’ from my youth. I interpreted that to mean I’d go down swinging before I would succumb to the Communist/Socialist threat from The Soviet Union. I’ll modify that for today’s threat. “Better dead than a turban on my head.”

God Bless the soldiers fighting to keep that turban off my head. Despite what our Commander in Chief secretly wants.
