"Hesitation in War is...Suicide"

A very good post on the Captain's Journal blog about the Rules of Engagement under which the US military operates in Iraq.

As Michael Ledeen comments, it's not only how many soldiers but how they are allowed to fight. A soldier should always consider seriously the consequences of his actions but the ROE in Iraq seems clearly to be contributing to significantly higher US casualties.
