    The left does not care, reference Israel as another example.

    One could easily turn that around on you: Is anyone other than the US ever to blame for anything? But civilians die in war, often more die than do the soldiers that fight them. But so what? Its only recently that civilian deaths in wartime seem to have become taboo--but only for the good guys. The bad guys kill civilians at will and use them as slaves, shields and propaganda. We kill one inadvertently and people like you jump down our throats and play the moral equivalency game.

    Apparently they are not in a mode where air strikes are optimum.

    Do you question their every move is not being monitored?

    I suspect a heavy dose of vitamin B-52 might do wonders in al-Baghdadi and the open country nearby. Drop leaflets first to warn the innocent to get out of town post haste, and then consider anyone still there to be hostile.

    Leaving the security of this base up to Iraqi forces is not very satisfactory. We cannot let even one of our servicemen be captured by these vermin--ever.

    The CIC that threw our troops under a bus was the previous one. This one actually gives a damn.

    Anybody can spin anything around on anybody. If killing civilians can be justified anywhere, it can be justified everywhere. This is why war (almost always avoidable, though so often sought) is a knuckle draggers enterprise.

    They allowed the enemy to approach close enough to be engaged with gunships. That's close and yes, I question that strategy.
