What If Moonbats Ran a War?

Moonbat insanity has now guaranteed that terrorists fighting our troops in Afghanistan will hide behind civilians:

The top U.S. general in Afghanistan will soon formally order U.S. and NATO forces to break away from fights with militants hiding in Afghan houses so the battles do not kill civilians, a U.S. official said Monday. …

Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who took command of international forces in Afghanistan this month, has said his measure of effectiveness will be the “number of Afghans shielded from violence,” and not the number of militants killed.

Maybe he got the idea from Chairman Zero measuring his economic performance by the fictional number of “jobs saved.”

McChrystal will issue orders within days saying troops may attack insurgents hiding in Afghan houses if the U.S. or NATO forces are in imminent danger and must return fire, said U.S. military spokesman Rear Adm. Greg Smith.

“But if there is a compound they’re taking fire from and they can remove themselves from the area safely, without any undue danger to the forces, then that’s the option they should take,” Smith said. “Because in these compounds we know there are often civilians kept captive by the Taliban.”

No doubt liberals will praise this enlightened policy, which will level the playing field by allowing Taliban terrorists to kill without fear of consequence, so long as they take cover behind the skirts of civilians.
