    There are also laws that prohibit using non-combatants as human shields.
    No. We would be surrendering to the innocent. NOT the bad guys. I see no armies of people marching against the US. ZERO threat of invasion from another countries army. We are at war while noone is at war with us. Just the people we chose to pick on.

    It absolutely matters if jihadis are using innocent civilians as human shields.

    They fight and hide behind innocent women and children then blame their deaths on NATO forces to "hurt our cause".

    Islamic jihadis don't "care about those killed" because of their actions and in fact deliberately target innocent civilians.

    Whether they care or not, or what their motives are, it doesn't matter if their strategy is effective. No matter how we feel about it, if it is effective, a smart stratigist would change strategies.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Millions upon millions of civilians died in World War II.

    It's called war for a reason. People die and crap gets blown up. When you try to strategically kill only certain people, wars last forever. When you go in all out, it's over a lot quicker.

    It's not a video game, unfortuntely. You don't get to hit "play again".

    Oh christ forget it, I'm no loger going to argue with the "Well this is how we did it in WW2" crowd.

    It's not that "easy". It's not that "simple".

    A certain General named Petraeus would disagree.

    Of course it matters if their methods are effective. If their methods were ineffective we wouldn't be talking about it or have to develop an effective strategery to counter it.

    What strategery do you use against an enemy who straps children to their chests in an effort to blame their deaths on NATO or US forces?

    We have no choice but to fight and defeat them.
