“Core Warrior Values” training for US troops after Haditha

U.S. military commanders in Iraq on Thursday ordered ethics training for combat troops, after accusations that Marines murdered unarmed civilians in an Iraqi town last year.

The training over the next 30 days in "core warrior values" would highlight "the importance of adhering to legal, moral and ethical standards on the battlefield," a statement said.
The fact that the US is implementing this training after the Haditha massacre implies that (1) inadequate training was provided prior to combat; AND (2) commanding officers are NOT, as they claim, confident that 99.9% of troops know how to conduct themselves according to the rules of war.

What's next? Finishing Schools for mercenaries? Sensitivity training for Ninja's? Public speaking courses for Hun tribesmen?

When will these people learn?

Inadequate training?

Their now being told "at least wait until the baby drops out of her belly then you shoot her and the kids!" "Oh and a little rape of the girls dead bodies wouldn't hurt either!"

God bless America?
God curse America!

The leaders need to cover their political asses. Public relations only.

How can we learn from History when it's the 'winners' who write the Story.

I guess we deploy the ultimate weapon; authenticity.

"sanitizing the area"=bombing everything from enemy soldiers to sewage plants
"revisit the site"= bomb it again.

The military consumes your life America and growing up and respecting this institution because of the employment it brings in industry has made you loose sight.

It was Hitler who was enamored with your great ability to effectively market products through the use of the new science of Psychology at the time.Thanks to the use of propaganda techniques using the new science of psychology; within 6 months the US public opinion was very much against the Germans. (insert Iranians for Germans today)Good old World War One is long forgotten now and the complexities of war and the improved skills of manipulation that plays on your fears has you even believing Al Zarqawi is the the incarnation of Emmanuel Goldstein.
