    Civilian casualties would be diminished if ISIS wasn't using them as human shields. That a war crime.

    Yes it is. Is it also permission?

    No, you're posting flame bait, because your desperate. I've already answered the question and you have proven that collateral damage is legal.

    No way insurgents should be able to mass around a major base of operations such as this.
    I have my doubts as well. I would imagine if they get too close they will either be wiped out by airstrikes or they will turn the Devil Dogs loose. Either way I don't see ISIS coming out on top.

    It is, if there's an enemy target to be destroyed.

    Properly supplied. A marine without his rifle is only equal to five enemies.
