    Since when was it accepted practice to send aircraft to destroy a house (and "suspect") in what is allegedly peacetime, rather than send in some troops if armed resistance is expected? That's a new take on "law enforcement". A "suspected" Taleban? It seems as if the US Administration and Armed Forces are completely out of control.

    You can't blame the troops. They don't want to be there but they have a job to do.

    Blame the administration. They're calling the shots. **** rolls uphill.

    Good point.
    By the day, this occupation is starting to sound more and more like the Palestinian-Israeli situation.

    Heavily guarded checkpoints, mandatory IDs printed in a strange language, restrictions on daily life, gunship attacks, suicide bombing, rocket attacks, death, destruciton and violence, wash, rinse, repeat.

    We know where it leads...

    do we really want to go down this road?

    [edit] I suppose I should have used the words "these occupations"
