No way to describe this ... 
Turns out the US hit the wrong house. Those six people killed really were innocent. I was 100 percent wrong.

The CNN article says that the bomb had "successful effects" against the insurgents. I'm not convinced. I'd like to see what the results were of any search of the targeted house. Explosives? Motorcycle batteries (with no motorcycle?) Garage door openers (with no garage)? Were the three suspected insurgents killed? What the hell does "successful effect" mean? The press is just letting that slide?

If there was another house just 20 meters away, too, I think we do have to look at whether the force used was proportional, under the old Jus in Bello doctrine we all had to learn during precommissioning training.

Much as I'd like to bring it to the bastards, I think an analysis in light of jus in bello and proportionality is entirely fair and should be constantly renewed.

And now, having written a post that sucks harder than an incontinent street whore with a plane to catch, I have to go commit sepuku in order to preserve my family's good name.

I'll leave it up for the record, but the post "A good strike" is hereby retracted. My heart goes out to the victims and their loved ones.

Well, except for their loved ones are moojies. Then to Hell with 'em.

Splash, out

Comments:
MOST of your post is still correct and right on the mark - i.e. this part:

There is nothing in the laws of war which prevents US forces from hitting moojies whereever they are. We can't take out a whole neighborhood to catch one IED crew. But we can sure as shit take down a house. One busy and skilled IED cell can kill dozens of US and coalition troops, and dozens of innocent civilians. If moojies want to protect their families and keep them safe, they have only two choices: Give up the fight, or never go home again.

If their families are providing shelter to mujahedeen, then they are aiding and abetting terrorism. It is a matter of public record that the US draws no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them.


It's just the last sentence that's unfortunate in retrospect. =)

Guess we won some more hearts and minds...
 
When American forces kill 6 innocent civilians, we publicly apologize and investigate the incident.

When terrorist forces kill 6 innocent civilians, their only regret is that they didn't kill more.
 
Jason:

You have just illustrated the standard I wish "professional" journalists would live up to.

Nice work. You reflect great credit on us all.

re: If their families are providing shelter to mujahedeen, then they are aiding and abetting terrorism. It is a matter of public record that the US draws no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them.

I guess this is why they say "War is hell". I honestly don't know what else we can do.
