LONG GONE ARE THE DAYS WHERE AMERICAN SOLDIERS COULD DISTINGUISH THEIR ENEMY BY THE UNIFORM THEY WORE.

Remember last year when an Army Officer was charged with 2 counts of murder for Afghanistan shootings
First Lieutenant Clint Lorance has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for murder because of an unfortunate incident while Clint was deployed to a volatile area of Afghanistan in July 2012, Panzai, in Kandahar province.
Three Afghans came speeding toward Clint's platoon and their Afghan National Army counterparts on a known enemy route where they had been attacked just days before.  Clint gave the order, responding to his soldier's verbal warning, to his men to engage the threat, and two of the men on the motorcycle were killed and the third escaped.

In the summer 2013 a jury at Fort Bragg found an 82nd Airborne Division lieutenant guilty of two counts of murder in connection with a series of shootings in Afghanistan.

WHO ARE THE LEAVENWORTH 10?

American Service members volunteer to put themselves in harms way, sometimes for multiple deployments. When an accidental civilian death occurs as a result of the asymmetric nature of modern warfare, the US Government looks for someone to hold accountable. This is when US Service members are offered as a sacrifice to host nation governments.

Since the French and Indian War rules for combat have been consistent. The first and foremost rule is that soldiers have the right to defend themselves. Second, a commander’s actions in battle should be directed toward saving the lives of his troops. He should try to avoid causing civilian casualties, but if saving civilian lives is not possible without endangering American military lives; his first consideration should be directed toward saving the lives of his troops.
By Maj. Gen. Jerry R. Curry, US Army, Ret.

HONOR THE FALLEN

Beirut, Lebanon, Beirut Marine Barracks bombing: October 23, 1983
Iran Rescue,
On November 4, 1979, an angry mob of young Islamic revolutionaries overran the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking more than 60 Americans hostage.
Pan Am Flight 103,
Fifteen years ago, on a cold and ultimately chilling evening just four days before Christmas, Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow Airport bound for New York City. Among the 259 passengers and crew were 189 Americans
Benghazi Libya,
On the evening of September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.[6] Stevens was the first U.S. Ambassador killed on duty since 1979

American Beheaded BEIRUT - Islamic State militants behead aid worker, former Ranger - The Islamic State group has beheaded Peter Kassig, releasing a video Sunday showing a masked militant standing over the severed head of a man it said was the former U.S. Army Ranger-turned-aid worker, who was seized while delivering relief supplies in Syria last year.

Is it going to be this, OR! ASSEMBLE THE TROOPS AND GET THE FLAMETHROWERS READY!

 

       
 

The U.S. Department of Defense decided in 1978 to stop using flamethrowers. They have been removed from the U.S. weapons arsenal and are not currently used by American soldiers. The decision by the U.S. Defense Department to ban the use of flamethrowers was voluntary.  Prior to dropping flamethrowers, the weapon had been widely used by U.S. soldiers in both World Wars, Korea, and the Vietnam conflict. In those combat environments, flamethrowers were used to destroy forts, bunkers and vehicles. They were also used to inflict psychological terror on enemy soldiers who were terrified of being burned alive. Modern flamethrowers can be mounted onto vehicles or a soldier’s back. Some flamethrowers can project fire 100 meters and incinerate targets within seconds.

Because of the particularly gruesome death that flamethrowers inflict on people, the weapon has been controversial since it was first used in the trenches of World War One. The controversy and dangers posed by flamethrowers have led to calls for the weapon to be banned in international treaties. However, to date, there are no treaties that explicitly ban the use of the weapon in combat. The U.S. is one of the few countries to voluntarily discontinue use of flamethrowers. The weapon has proven popular with terrorist organizations ranging from Al Qaeda to the Irish Republican Army.

Next, if it is wrong for sports teams to have mascots with Indian names or images, does it follow that it is wrong for any organization, geographic location or natural feature to have Indian names or to use Indian images? If so, what will we rename Lake Huron, or the states of Illinois, Iowa and Utah, and, the worst offender of all, Indiana? Does Red Man chewing tobacco have to change its brand name and logo? Should we never shout “Geronimo!”
