No, your frustration is quite understandable.
I prefer the Total War concept, not this watered down, Viet Nam *****footin' around war.

If it saves US soldier's lives then I can't ***** about it too much.

I'm agreeing with Paul on this one.

Total war? How about no war? Our congress hasn't declared crap... I still think we need to get back to the basis of the constitution. It was made to keep order and to keep people in check everywhere so no crazy crap like a government do things TO us, rather than FOR us.

Maybe that's it. The fact that were doing this 50/50 war/hugs approach.

We would have been done in the sandbox long ago if we allowed to gloves to come off.

I don't know at what point someone decided to fight war in a humane manner.

I like it. It's not like they are wearing those burqas or something and are completely covered. It's just long sleeved BDU and a head scarf.

However... I'm not sure why they just can't wear a helmet?! but whatever, I like they are trying to reach out to the local customs. esp if it helps us in our mission.

^Exactly. I don't see what the big deal is. Blending in with the indigs and learning their customs is essential in establishing a relationship with the locals. There is no real way to gather HUMINT otherwise.

"Going Indig" with beards and shemaghs.
