I gots a question!

For Secretary Rumsfeld:

Why are our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan acting as police officers?

The main job of the U.S. Military is to look imposing so they don't have to be used. When they are used, their job is to kill people and break things.

So, why are our soldiers acting as police officers and trying to arrest insurgents and terrorists? Shouldn't they be shooting the bastards first?

I know that there is intelligence to be gathered, but the type of "human" debris that go up against our soldiers don't have that information. The intelligence agencies and the Special Forces do a lot of undercover work - they can get the information we need.

But the general troops? Making them into cops just gets them killed.
