    They\'re Called Security Rounds!

    It\'s a safety issue pure and simple. After assaulting through a
    target, put a security round in everybody\'s head. Sorry al-Reuters,
    there\'s no paddy wagon rolling around Fallujah picking up \"prisoners\"
    and offering them a hot cup a joe, falafel, and a blanket. There\'s no
    time to dick around in the target, you clear the space, dump the
    chumps, and moveon.org.

    Are Corpsman expected to treat wounded terrorists? Negative.

    Hey libs, worried about the defense budget? Well, it would be waste,
    fraud, and abuse for a Corpsman to spend one man minute or a battle
    dressing on a terrorist, its much cheaper to just spend the $.02 on a
    5.56mm FMJ.

    By the way, terrorists who chop off civilian\'s heads are not
    prisoners, they are carcasses.

    UPDATE: Let me be very clear about this issue. I have looked around
    the web, and many people get this concept, but there are some
    stragglers.

    Here is your situation Marine:

    You just took fire from unlawful combatants shooting from a religious
    building attempting to use the sanctuary status of their position as
    protection. But you\'re in Fallujah now, and the Marine Corps has
    decided that they\'re not playing that game this time. That was Najaf.
    So you set the mosque on fire and you hose down the terrorists with
    small arms, launch some AT-4s (Rockets), some 40MM grenades into the
    building and things quiet down. So you run over there, and find some
    tangos wounded and pretending to be dead.

    You are aware that suicide martyrdom is like really popular with
    these kind of idiots, and like taking some Marines with them would be
    really cool. So you can either risk your life and your fireteam\'s
    lives by having them cover you while you bend down and search a guy
    that you think is pretending to be dead for some reason.

    Also, you don\'t know who or what is in the next room, and you\'re
    already speaking english to each other and its loud because your
    hearing is poor from shooting people for several days. So you know
    that there are many other rooms to enter, and that if anyone is still
    alive in those rooms, they know that Americans are in the mosque.
    Meanwhile (3 seconds later), you still have this terrorist that was
    just shooting at you from a mosque playing possum. What do you do?

    You double tap his head, and you go to the next room, that\'s what.

    What about the Geneva Conventions and all that Law of Land Warfare stuff?

    What about it?

    Without even addressing the issues at hand you first thought should
    be, \"I\'d rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.\" Bear in mind that
    this is a perpetual mindset that is reinforced by experiences gained
    on a minute by minute basis.

    Secondly, you are fighting an unlawful combatant in a Sanctuary which
    is a double No No on his part.

    Third, tactically you are in no position to take \"prisoners\" because
    there are more rooms to search and clear, and the behavior of said
    terrorist indicates that he is up to no good.

    No good in Fallujah is a very large place and the low end of no good
    and the high end of no good are fundamentally the same... Marines get
    hurt or die. So there is no compelling reason for you to do anything
    but double tap this idiot and get on with the mission.

    If you are a veteran then everything I have just written is self
    evident, if you are not a veteran than at least try to put yourself in
    the situation.

    Remember, in Fallujah there is no yesterday, there is no tomorrow,
    there is only now. Right NOW. Have you ever lived in NOW for a week?
    It is not easy, and if you have never lived in NOW for longer than it
    takes to finish the big roller coaster at Six Flags, then shut your
    hole about putting Marines in jail for war crimes.

    Be advised, I am not talking to my readers, but if this post gets
    linked up, I want regular folks to get this message loud and clear.

    Only UN-Americans put the UN before America!
