U.S. rules of engagement bite us in the ass again

Seems that our enemies know that we follow the rules and use it to their advantage. In the meantime they send suicide bombers to another funeral. When the hell are we going to take off the gloves!
We need to get over Western conventions when dealing with terrorist. They make it a practice to attack funerals as has been reported from Iraq to this past weeks attack on a funeral in Afghanistan. Being considerate of others who fly planes into buildings and bomb markets is stupid and sounds like some idiotic UN resolution. Kill them at every opportunity as they call their followers to do to us.

September 13, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - Taliban terror leaders who had gathered for a funeral - and were secretly being watched by an eye-in-the-sky American drone - dodged assassination because U.S. rules of engagement bar attacks in cemeteries, according to a shocking report.

U.S. intelligence officers in Afghanistan are still fuming about the recent lost opportunity for an easy kill of Taliban honchos packed in tight formation for the burial, NBC News reported.

The unmanned airplane, circling undetected high overhead, fed a continuous satellite feed of the juicy target to officers on the ground.

"We were so excited. I came rushing in with the picture," one U.S. Army officer told NBC.

But that excitement quickly turned to gut-wrenching frustration because the rules of engagement on the ground in Afghanistan blocked the U.S. from mounting a missile or bomb strike in a cemetery, according to the report.
