Reports indicate U.S. soldiers and British Royal Marines have been urged to show "courageous constraint" by not shooting Taliban members spotted planting IEDs.The reason? Shooting them might disturb the locals.
This news comes out on the heels of an investigation into the death of Royal Marine Sergeant Peter Rayner, whom witnesses say watched the Taliban plant IEDs at night but was ordered not to engage them. Families of other soldiers and Royal Marines are telling stories of how their loved ones were not allowed to use mortars or night illumination when they came across Taliban members in an area full of IEDs.
The reason given was that "the sound of shooting 'might wake up and upset the locals.'"
This is not "courageous restraint" -- this is appeasement.
We have GOT to get these idiots out of office.
***Team Obama blaming Kerry for debate loss. Well of course. Couldn't POSSIBLY be Obama's fault. Nothing is.
***Letterman: Idiot. Claims Romney may be a "felon" because he "hasn't paid a nickel in income tax." Except he did.
Meanwhile, a letter from Price Waterhouse Coopers states that Romney paid an average of 20 percent in taxes every year from 1999 to 2009. His 2011 taxes were mostly paid on investment income.***
A tourist stopped a local in a village he was visiting and asked; “What is the quickest way to the lake?
The local thought for awhile. “Are you walking or driving?” he asked the tourist.
“That is the quickest way!” the local said.
***Liberals fret that Obama doesn't want to win. Good. We don't want him to win either.
***Jack Nicholson is pro-life. That's good to know.
Mr. Nicholson was raised by his grandparents. His biological mother conceived him as an unmarried teenager. Now 75 years of age, he still speaks very lovingly about his childhood and the wonderful people who surrounded him as a young boy. It was this background that firmed up his opposition to abortion and his support for the pro-life movement.“I don't have the right to any other view,” he once said. “My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life. If June and Ethel (his biological mother and grandmother) had been of less character, I would have never lived. These women gave me the gift of life.”
***Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment
***Have a great day!
