Courageous Restraint

U.S. Soldiers Urged Not to Shoot Taliban at Night so Locals Can Sleep

Reports indicate U.S. soldiers and British Royal Marines have been urged to show “courageous constraint” by not shooting Taliban members spotted planting IEDs.

The reason? Shooting them might disturb the locals.

Murdoc would like to assume that this is being sensationalized way out of proportion, but what we’ve seen lately out of Afghanistan makes him wonder.

  1. Hopefully the Taliban is respecting the same civilized restraint and not blowing up our soldiers and Marines between the hours of of 10:00pm and 8:00am.

    Sounds like the war is being run by my home owners association.
