    Nonsense. I can "resist"'you by name rank and unit not anwering, spitting in your face or other methods.....


    Got consession?
    And you can resist by lying, buying temporary relief, and sending your enemy on a snipe hunt. Hell, innocent people tortured do that all the time. They have to.

    They have stated what they want as it concerns us. But the tactic is used by many for many different reasons. For us, they want us out of the Middle east, out of their affiars. This is not realistic, but that is what they want. They do seek to accomplish something, which is part of the definition of terrorism.

    You claimed this was part of your training. I would like to see the corresponding evidence such as an FM manual that is was.

    But what affairs are those? Do you have any concrete information as to why Islamists are committing terrorist acts all over the world? Please keep in mind that it is not only the Americans and Western Europeans who have been subject to these attacks.

    Or are they being deceptive in their motives as well?

    Like I said, all over the world there are different reasons in each specific case. Israel is important concerning us. Palistine cases a lot of grief and is part of the attack against us. And they are being no more deceptive concerning their reasoning for actions than we have been, in say, why we invaded Iraq.

    This is not in any way a defense of their actions, or anyone's actions who use the tactic of terrorism. But let's not think this is new, or limited to one people, or any more deceptive than any other group who wants to convince people to act violently. Terrorism is wrong no matter who does it. Deception is less clear. There might be times when deception can be justified. And times when it can't be. And some areas inbetween.

    Don't think I have a copy. And don't have any notes. But the conversation came up all the same. Sorry.

    Policy? I suspect addressing all possible aspects is good policy. Which I think is why they addressed it.

    either that, or the NCO gave his own opinion... If it's not in the rules or the manual, it's not military policy. Sorry d00d.
