Changes To ROE

A military source close to Gen. David Petraeus told Fox News that one of the first things the general will do when he takes over in Afghanistan is to modify the rules of engagement to make it easier for U.S. troops to engage in combat with the enemy

I hope so. It seems that many in the military, and their families, hate the new ROE that Gen. McChrystal put in place. If they're going to be sent to war let them fight the way they need to. And while he's at it, how about getting rid of that stupid Medal for Courageous Restraint. That seems like a slap in the face of the men and women in uniform. I think they all happen to show tremendous restraint considering everything they're being put through.
