"I Didn't Join To Be Sacrificed." - American Soldier

Army Ranger who recently left the military: “I had to get out. I have a family who needs me. I didn’t join to be sacrificed. I joined to fight.” 

From my article, My Name is Bosch and I'm a Recoverd Muslim: 

Our altruistic concern for the future and well being of the Muslim world has come at the expense of American lives and treasure. We’ve placed the well being of “The Muslim World” above our own self-defense. We’ve placed today’s Big Lie, “Islam means peace”, above the truth we need to act on. We’ve placed the lives of Muslim civilians above the lives of our soldiers, placing them in absolutely unnecessary danger in order to protect innocent (or even guilty) civilians. Our Rules of Engagement might as well be renamed the Golden Rules of Engagement, as our soldiers have been forced to treat the enemy the way we’d like to be treated. And the enemy takes full advantage of that, as they do of all of the policies our morally vain politicians have concocted. We need to shift the focus onto our own well-being at the enemy’s expense for a change.

We’ve tried everything since 9/11 except real war. War is the answer to Jihad.

You win a war by killing as many enemy soldiers as possible and destroying the opposition army with as much strength and overwhelming fire-power as you can muster. You don't win a war by killing civilians with drone strikes and leaving the army and soldiers intact.

Thanks for retailing this, Bosch. It exposes the Complicit Conservatives, who prate on about the value of sacrifice for the nation along with the Progressive Appeasers, who are similarly inane in their defense of murderous cultures.

The most important history lesson for all American leaders should be from the Civil War. After defeat following defeat, Generals Grant, Sherman and Sheridan imagined and orchestrated Operation Crusher (in my opinion inventing modern warfare). Operation Crusher was a ruthless attack on the southern states destroying crops, industry, and leading to a deadly fire in Atlanta, but it stopped the hemorrhaging of life from our country. The most humane way to fight a war is to fight with such ferocity that your enemy can't imagine a way to defeat you. War is destruction. It is best to end the destruction as soon as possible, you can't do that when you pull your punches every time your enemy enters a village, that may contain "innocent people."

Scorched earth had been practiced by many other cultures previously (Mongols are my favorite example). The Mongols even went as far as to use civilian cannon fodder as a screen (and haulers of siege equipment) for their soldiers when assaulting cities. Scorched earth is not only useful for ruining the enemy's ability to fight and their moral but it can force the enemy into unfavorable engagements as the armies usually are pressured to try to rescue the areas under threat.

The Assyrian Empire did something similar to this but it was more as punishment for rebelling.

It's difficult to determine who is a "soldier in the army" and who is a "civilian" when the entire ummah is organized to ensure that islam, that is, sharia, is the law of the land for any land that is conquered. Once a land has been under Islamic rule, it is not accepted that this land would ever be anything else, i.e., Al-Andalus, rather than Spain, or Palestine rather than Israel. So, does any country in the 21st century have the cojones to wipe out entire populations? Look at any Islamic organization that is currently terrorizing a Christian / Hindu / Buddist / Jewish / Secular / Sunni / Shia society, anywhere in the world, and recognize that they are ready to keep killing "innocents" until the rest of the populace submits to those Islamic rulers.
