Wednesday morning blood boiler


By a vote of 84-14, the senators resolved Tuesday that the ultimate decision about who is properly considered an “enemy combatant,” should rest with federal judges, not our military commanders who actually confront the enemy in the life-and-death of the battlefield.

The stated mission of the Fire Team, the basic unit that makes up the backbone of the Marine Corps is "to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy by direct fire and close air support."

Soon to be changed, courtesy of the US Senate to "locate, arrest, and Mirandize the suspect by court-issued warrant and preserving the chain of evidence."
