unless of course you think its reasonable to want to bomb Pakistan because some of their citizens burnt a US flag?
Now, once we got into 2007 and unassed ourselves from the FOBs, we started patrolling and LIVING with the population and thus started building real relationships and in short order stopped the civil war. Counterinsurgency, baby. And in a country sophisticated enough to develop. (i.e. NOT AFGHANISTAN) By this point, it's the security services of Iraq on point, with our assist, and not many innocents were killed.
Ok, so let us say that we killed 250 innocent civilians. Damn shame and not intentional. In fact the instances where it did occur were completely counterproductive, no? Al'qaeda and the insurgents killed thousands of innocents. They targeted them. Do we see the difference?
Your original statement:The American forces first ferried the terrorist's body to the USS Carl Vinson for DNA tests to confirm a match with members of his extended family. His body was then wrapped in a white shroud while Islamic rites were administered and dropped into the Arabian Sea in a weighted bag, to ensure his final resting place could not become a shrine for extremists
The reports now are that only one BG fired on the seal team, he was subdued early on and the team then went through the property whacking the rest then took UBL's body, burned it, and dumped it into the ocean...
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
ric is claiming inside info.
