Before I get into this- let me just point out the obvious---our BEST are there under the auspice of the UN---so- this "don't fire" medal idea comes via NATO---
Since Korea-our BEST have been fighting losing wars because the UN is run by losers who hate the US---when I say losing wars---I do not mean that our BEST lose them--they fight and win- and our politicians withdraw just after we win--examples- Korea-Vietnam-Desert Storm--etc.etc.etc.>>>>>>>
Get us out of the UN!!!- it will fold- because we in the US are PAYING a HUGE amount of taxpayer $$$ for the UN to exist!!!
I have been stating the the present RoE's --Rules of Engagement-- are getting our BEST killed and I use the example of Marcus Luttrell and his brothers in arms-let a bunch of herders go--soon - the Dark Siders (Lucifer's Kids) came and killed all but Marcus-
Marcus wrote a fabulous book called - _Lone Survivor_ gives the full story on scenario above---
Now the military 'brass' wants to give a medal for holding fire :
