    then in that case you would have been in major trouble if your commander had been Gustav Rodel.

    and you probably would not have done the same thing that Franz Stigler did on december 20, 1943.

    Amongst civilians. I am not sure, but I suspect looking between their legs won't tell you who is who.

    As long as we insist on sniper-like precision and near-zero collateral losses, no....

    We were at war with Iraq and Afghanistan, which when the war started was governed by the Taliban. We are not at war with any terrorist organization at this time. We are occasionally using drones to kill random people and we are dropping bombs on selected targets in Syria. These two activities are not war. They are a confused foreign policy which will not commit itself to facing our enemies and only involve itself in symbolism. We would rather drone innocents to death than risk taking a prisoner and sending them to Gitmo because that would interfere with the administrations intention to release the terrorists there and close the base.

    Of course that is silly. But so is putting troops on the ground to defeat a word.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
