Pentagon Ditches Onerous Rules of Engagement

by
February 25, 2017

US Army Soldiers in IraqIraqi forces and U.S. coalition troops are no longer burdened by strict rules of engagement, which some say have turned firepower requests into bureaucratic nightmares.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. James Browning, commander of 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, recently spoke with reporters about a Dec. 26 directive that streamlined the process of delivering aid. The order, attributed to U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, was confirmed on Thursday by Air Force Col. John Dorrian, the U.S.-led coalition’s spokesman.

“It changed the relationship [between forces],” Lt. Col. Browning told The Associated Press about increased flexibility on the battlefield. “It gives me a better understanding of how I can bring to bear the limited capabilities I have.”

The new rules, which were supplemented with more directives weeks ago, allow U.S. personnel to better assist — physically and logistically — the Iraqi army’s 9th Division. Advisers are increasingly embedded with Iraqis and they can avoid cumbersome requests through a joint command center.

“[We previously] would have gone through a whole bureaucracy and through Baghdad,” the officer told AP by phone.

    WND EXCLUSIVE
    BLOWBACK! U.S. TRAINED ISLAMISTS WHO JOINED ISIS

    Secret Jordan base was site of covert aid to insurgents targeting Assad
    Published: 06/17/2014

    http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/officials-u-s-trained-isis-at-secret-base-in-jordan/

    [EDITOR’S NOTE: Since publication, this story has been corrected to clarify that the fighters trained in Jordan became members of the ISIS after their training.]

    JERUSALEM – Syrian rebels who would later join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.

    The officials said dozens of future ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.

    The Jordanian officials said all ISIS members who received U.S. training to fight in Syria were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.

    In February 2012, WND was first to report the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region.

    That report has since been corroborated by numerous other media accounts.

    Last March [2012], the German weekly Der Spiegel reported Americans were training Syrian rebels in Jordan.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    I hope that means the CIA will not drop supplies to FSA/ISIS/ISIL forces anymore.

    After confirming Obama and the CIA created, trained and supported FSA/ISIS/ISIL forces for 3 years, a very disgusted President Trump left Langley, Virginia CIA Headquarters after his meeting last month.

    Tonight, Defense Secretary ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis’s Pentagon directed US Army units to attack CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia shortly after Obama arrived for a “W T F do we now? conference” with his loyal CIA sycophants.

    SO WE ARE FINALLY GOING INTO ARMS WAY TO WIN….A practice Ignored by the WHMPYOVOMIT that gave us the Last Victory in 1945 and in IRAQ before the Idiot Fake POTUS gave rise to ISIS and we have to go back to win again!!!

  • randy jackson says:

    Thank God.
    Burdensome “Rules of Engagement” was the very tactic that caused so many Americans to die unnecessarily (Viet Nam through recent days).
    Now it’s time to go kick ass and defeat ISIS (isn’t it great that no military or political mongrel uses the word “ISIL”? Nice! In your face Ovomit!)

  • champion2211 says:

    It is about time. We as soldiers and sailors have been hindered by the rules of engagement for so many, many years. Now that doesn’t give the opposite side doing something first. Just like the fly by’s of our Navy ships. Those that are doing so would have already been shot down. They are breaking what is safe distance as well as could be causing a problem at sea. Who ever gave them the authority to do so, wouldn’t be around long knowing he was responsible for the loss of two or more of their aircraft for a stupid move.

    It’s about time! Military action is applied after diplomats have failed. Diplomats had their chance, but having failed, they resorted to military action. Once that decision is made, diplomats need to step away and allow the war to be won. The next time diplomats are consulted is after the war is won.

    The mission of the military is to win the war. It is to kill enemy combatants and destroy enemy infrastructure; it is NOT to win hearts and minds. It is NOT to build anything but the infrastructure needed to bring the war to the enemy.

  • Walter Flatt says:

    WE HAVE FOUGHT UNDER THE GENIVIER CONVENTION IN EVERY WAR AND NONE WE HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST ARE UNDER THE SAME RULE. SO WE HAVE HAD OUR HANDS TIED, NOW UNTIE THEM AND LET US ROLL, FOLKS IT IS KILL OR BE KILLED, CARPET BOMBING IS A MUST, LIKE IT OR LUMP IT, IF WE HAD NOT CARPET BOMBED DURING WORLD WAR 2, WE WOULD NOT BE AMERICA NOW. SO ALL YOU IDIOTS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN IN WAR AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS LIKE. SHUT UP OR GO OVER THERE FOR 1 YEAR AND FIGHT.

    SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    OBAMA HAS GIVEN BILLIONS TO MUSLIMS THAT ARE TRYING TO KILL US. ENOUGH TO REBUILD OUR MILITARY AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

    PRAY THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT GET READY, PRESIDENT TRUMP, BE VERY CAREFUL, WE HAVE WORKED TO HARD TO LOSE YOU NOW. FIRE EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH OBAMA.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REG. DEM. ALL MY LIFE, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP & WILL NEVER VOTE DEM AGAIN AS LONG AS THIS LYING CROOKED MESS IS IN D.C.

    HAS OBAMA SET HIMSELF UP TO BE THE HEAD OF A MUSLIM TRY AT TAKING THIS COUNTRY? BETTER THINK! HE IS A MUSLIM SETTING UP HEADQUARTERS WITH HOLDER IN DC, 5 MUSLIM CAMPS JUST ACROSS THE LINE IN NORTH VA. MUSLIM AND FEMA CAMPS ALL OVER THE USA, MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. HE HAS TAKEN BILLIONS OF YOUR MONEY AND GIVEN TO MUSLIMS AND HAS DONE NOTHING BUT DAMAGE THE USA. BETTER WAKE UP.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP FOR A TRY AT A MUSLIM INVASION OF THIS COUNTRY BY, HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SORROS AND THE BIASED MEDIA. READ ALL THE WHYS BELOW.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952. PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212. ALSO #8 US CODE 482, BARRING ALL INADISSIBLE ALIENS FROM THE USA GOVERNMENT WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NATION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY DID HILLIARY HAVE A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD AND TRAIN MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICKED THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY? PRAY THAT TRUMP WILL DO THIS.

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    WHY DONT THE BIASED MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT. PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION EACH DAY.

    I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM. SHARE THIS.

  • Tiger says:

    When I spoke of this, Obama coming into office and changing the Rules of Engagement I was called a liar. About time to see this come around. Obama was micromanaging the war from the WH. The last Seal Team Six Commander wrote a book and in it he spoke of the loss of our men’s lives due to these Rules of Engagement. He spoke of an entire Platoon killed due to having to go threw 15 layers of arm chair generals. Our Pilots said when they had the enemy in sight they had to wait for O to give them permission to fire and by the time they got it the enemy gone. They said they came back to base bombs in the bay never fired.

    Thank God the truth is coming out daily and this insanity of sacrificing our men for the sake of not hurting Islam is over. We had the enemy within and can hardly wait until things simmer down enough and O can be prosecuted for Treason along with much more.

      Tiger, I saw the film, the pilot had a compound full of Asis and ammo trucks in his site, he was ready to vaporise them but had to check with obama, he was told to abort, Obama said there could be civilians in the compound, yea! ( paid civilians helping Isis refuel and reload) then he asked for permission to blow a pick up truck, one Isis guy, vaperised it with two missiles $40 thousand each, what a waste Obama was, Im surte Trump will deal with him and Hillary once he gets this country up and running. Trump knows what our boys need to get the job done.

      1. Tiger says:

        I certainly am so happy to know others are aware of this, I have been called the most horrible names and a Liar for years for telling the truth and it feels good to see all that millions of us were saying is now being shown as fact.

        Thank God in this case millions were not to late smart and voted Trump in. I am looking forward to these people crashing and burning.

            For sure.

    2. dmttbt says:

      I pray that you are correct about o being prosecuted but I highly doubt it. It should be happening now but then again he should never have been elected either time. They had Islamic prayer daily in the white house and we furnished the prayer rugs and at the same time it is illegal to have a prayer time in our schools. I am not much on religion and I certainly think that time would be better spent on teaching but they could have an opportunity to pray and if they did not want to that would be their choice. They could have it before or after school. I do have one thing that I support even more and that is the pledge of allegiance and if that offends someone they are in the wrong country.

      1. Tiger says:

        He would never been elected again without voter fraud. Even with vast voter fraud exposed in video by people who infiltrated the DNC Trump won. NO Progressive/Communist will ever get into the WH again.

        As to O, he and Hillary are off the board for now due to the rioting Left but believe me Hillary still has the FBI and Congress onto her along with 4 suits on her Foundation and O has been found to have laundered money when he gave the Iranians money for the prisoners and many other things are coming to light. O, H and Soros will be prosecuted give it time.

    myself I remove the threat using what force is necessary. At the end of the
    day I come home safe and my enemies lie dead in the streets. I will, when
    possible, limit civilian casualties.

  • regulus30 says:

    what some people may not understand or want to , is that 35/40% of obimbo/democraps voter base in the black community is muslim [aka; lewis farahhkan, malik shabaaz, said mefume’] so he had to play to them.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      Your math doesn’t work, the total Muslim population of the US is under .7%, and they are not all blacks, 98% of the black vote went to Democrats or around 10% of the population. Do the math before you make up numbers.

      1. regulus30 says:

        well BOB the truth is you exhibit a liberals inability to use deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills; I said the black population of voters is 35/40% muslim, not the total muslim population. Get it?

        1. bobnstuff says:

          If 10% of the population is black and 00.7% of the population is Muslim then only 7% of blacks can be Muslim. It’s basic math. A fourth grader can do it.

          1. snowyriver says:

            bobnstuff: lets do a little experiment.. I give you a bowl of M&Ms .. beautiful aren’t they… then I tell you that 10% of them are deadly poison . How many are you going to eat, or how many will you give your children? The bowl of M&Ms are exactly what the protesters of Trump’s immigration rules are trying to give you and your children.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I give you a bag of M&M’s and tell you there is a 1 in 3,6 billion chance one would kill you I bet you would gobble them down. Those are the odds of you being killed by a Muslim refuge terrorist in the US.

          3. snowyriver says:

            Doing a little research.. you can do that also… 132 Americans killed in the last ten years by Muslims.. I don’t like the odds.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            I guess you also never buy a lottery ticket, you are much more likely to win the Maga Million then die at the hands of a Muslin. In fact you are more likely to die from a piece of furniture falling on you. Those Muslims had better get busy killing people, they aren’t even as a percentage killing their share. If they were holding up the end of the murders they would have kill a lot more. My guess is you don’t know what the murder rate is in this country. If I were you I would be more afraid of the Police, the kill at 55 times the rate of terrorists.

          5. regulus30 says:

            Oh boy; regardless of what percent of the total population is black has nothing to do with the percentage of their population that is muslim in relation to you using 330 million to get the total muslim population and then applying that number to the percentage of blacks in the total population is hypothetical ; it does not reflect the real number of muslims in just the black population; you are using two different base numbers to justify your incorrect position; you play like old obimbo did with the unemployment numbers; liberal jibberish.

          6. bobnstuff says:

            Let’s just face it you were repeating some statement made by one of the nice Right Wing know nothing talking heads and you excepted it with out even noticing that it made no sense. The Muslim population of the US is small. Much smaller then the so call right wing fact givers want you to believe. You are easily suckered in. There are only a few million Muslims in the country. In your mind that’s a lot but as a percentage of the total population it’s very small. As far as the employment numbers go the system has been in place for counting them for a long time and it hasn’t been change. Those numbers you claim are cooked are the same ones Trump will be using and telling you how great things are.

            These around 3000 Mosques in the US, I took the high number. There are 350,000 churches in our country.

            Racially, thirty percent of Muslim Americans report their race as white, 23% as black, 21% as Asian, 6% as Hispanic and 19% as other or mixed race.

          7. regulus30 says:

            I understand your inability to see logic; it’s your way of life; let’s do this at your level and it still won’t make any difference to you; using the total muslim population included in the 330 million has NO BEARING on the relative percentage as applied to a secular group [like blacks], using a specific number relating to only a fraction of the whole will positively influence that number to be greater. You see there is a lower percentage of muslims living in the Menonite community than the would be living in the black community, calculated by dividing the muslim number into the secular group number.

          8. bobnstuff says:

            You are truly mathematically challenged. you said ” I said the black population of voters is 35/40% muslim, not the total muslim population. Get it?” So If 10% of the population is black and 40% are Muslims then 4% of the voters are black Muslims. The Problem is on;y less the 1% of the population is Muslim and only 25% of all Muslim in America are black So you number is 16 times the real one. In other words less then a Million Black Muslim voted for Obama. Maybe you need Common Core Math.
