The times they are a changin'!
Well, lookee here, I was taught those techniques in 1980 and the bottom line was: Kill the enemy! So, NEVER USE A DOOR if you can blow a hole in the wall. Well, that was before collateral damage became such an issue. Remember I was training to fight WWIII against the USSR. Not small urban ops in tight confines where anybody that gets killed BESIDES the specific targets often just spawns more bad guys! If you can't blow a hole in a wall, toss in one or more 'nades and the result is the same. Always clear buildings from the top down to avoid "ALAMO SYNDROME." But that's not possible in today's environment is it? Yeah, it's possible that it was taught to me and I forgot. That happens more and more as I get older. But it's nice to be "reminded" if I did forget.
