Outrage! U.S. Soldiers ordered not to shoot Taliban mine planters, because it might wake up the locals

By
October 5, 2012

Add this to the sacrifice of human life because of the Obama/Clinton appeasement policy in Lybia and the bodies begin to mount up. More details on story excerpted below via  a Mail Online report.

Soldiers were ordered not to open fire on Taliban fighters planting mines in case they disturb local people, it has been claimed. U.S. military chiefs ordered troops to exercise ‘courageous constraint’ and even warned them they could be charged with murder if they shot any Taliban without permission from above.

The claims were made by a former Royal Marine who spoke out following the inquest into the death of Sergeant Peter Rayner last week.

    “I AM LIBERTY”
    The blood of patriots fills my veins,
    Their courage fills my heart!
    And Heaven’s voice at times is heard,
    In the words that I impart.
    All good I do, all that I have,
    Is the Great God’s gift to thee,
    Some few have known me all their lives—
    FOR I AM LIBERTY.

    Long ago at Marathon’s Plains I fought
    To preserve the voice of Greece.
    And at the Spartans’ “Hottest Gates”,
    I held the pass without relief.
    My weapons may be rock or bow
    Or arms which titans might see
    To battle for truth and life itself–
    FOR I AM LIBERTY

    I enlisted in Crusades to strive
    To preserve more than one Holy place.
    I dared to seek the end of the earth,
    Unsure what I might face.
    Columbus of old was my dear kin–
    Who planted my sacred tree.
    I will never sleep; I will never quit—
    FOR I AM LIBERTY.

    At Valley Forge the farmers’ sons
    Stained the snow red with their blood.
    My beloved at Midway and at the Bulge
    Linked their souls against the flood.
    Despite the depths and horrors of war
    Which you pray you will never see,
    If the need is there, I shall do my share—
    FOR I AM LIBERTY.

    Again, the foes of honor and law,
    Conspire to defy my name.
    Their speech, their arms, their vile demands,
    “More modern” …and yet the same.
    But the powers of Heaven are in my hands,
    And as long as you still believe,
    New enemies shall fail, just as those before–
    FOR I AM LIBERTY

    The officers who issued those orders should be drummed out of the regiment forthwith. What bleedin’ army has ever succeeded by not engaging the enemy, especially when the element of surprise is theirs?
