And here was me thinking it was because I knew the definition of collareral damage..

Definitions of collateral damage on the Web:

•(euphemism) inadvertent casualties and destruction inflicted on civilians in the course of military operations


Or are you saying they were deliberatly targeted???

im sorry I didn't see anywhere where I said I was wrong, maybe you should get your eyes checked. When you crawl out of your whole, grow a set, and get over to afghanistan, you can see a war first hand. Taking lives every day, watcjing your friends die. Going from compound to compound for insurgents stockpiling weapons, or high ranking insurgents. Having bullets fly by you, taking metal to the face. That's war, and that's what's going on. Whether you want to live in fantasy land or not is your choice, obviously you do it well. When you want to know the truth from someone who has been there, not just gotten there info from anti govt sites and cnn, come see us.

The problem is that a lot of folks without any first hand experience in combat want to apply law-enforcement principles to wartime.

The goals of policemen are exact opposites of a soldier.

The policeman wants to use minimum force to effect an arrest.

Completely different weapons, completely different rules of engagement, completely different mindsets, completely different goals.

The soldier wants to kill the SOB.

So when an enemy combatant runs into a house or structure, no one is interested in risking their life to take them captive.

You blow the whole thing.

Mission accomplished.

If you don't want your house blown to ****, then don't allow the combatants to hold meetings in your house, don't allow them to gather at your house, and if you do, then make sure your family is clear when they do.

The meeting gets blown and your family is inside, their blood is on YOUR head.

lol...Nice rant simply because you don't know the definition of "collateral damage"
My eyes are fine..Rather than childish insults, why don't you take up the military offer of free studies..
I suggest English first..

I have a degree in criminal justice, and I do know the definition of collateral damage. Do you know the definition of war? Have you fought in a war and been given first hand experience in a war? No, you sit back and make assumptions on things you have no clue about except through cnn. If you want to talk about war on terrorism, go see what it is first hand. Your not even from this country, so go back to the cage you came from. People like you wouldn't last through boot camp.

Ahh what a load of (snip)
You know absolutely nothing about me..
Strange that you think you do...

Saying what you do under a fake name is easy, proving it is harder..
I know how the average soldier talks most of the time...
I'll leave it at that...

If the US stays in the area for long enough, they'll get to kill all of the 15 year old males that were born since the initial invasion!
This war could last forever!

Fair point. I wasn't trying to broad-brush, but I see that I did it anyway; apologies for that.

My thrust was that there are people who think being a veteran should be sole, or at least dominant criteria for leadership in our nation, or that being a veteran automatically makes a person's opinion weigh more. The poster I responded to is an example of why these sort of outlooks are wrongheaded; not every veteran is worthy of respect, simply for being a veteran.
