#2   There are hard rules of engagement made by politicians and careerist JAGs. And army regulations (all based on similar training) do not allow creative bending of these rules.

The resourceful and clever soldier can often bend and skate on rules, offing mewling 16 year olds lying in the dust. But men who value their career, and image in the eyes of other men ? They just can't. Also, there are a lot of whiners and rats in every unit who can complain.

In terms of practicality, a blown-up leg, shredded arm or a cracked rib-cage to an enemy is thought a better thing. It won't ever fight again. Some fucker will have to take care of it, it shall make life miserable for its own side. But applied to jihadis this theory falls flat. They want to die. You should not risk leaving any one alive. He alone may kill ten innocents. These days the liberal, life-worshiping nations of the west often allow local allies to do the wetwork for them. They'd rather kill by long-range methods, or proxy. It's true.

Unfortunately, the armies of the world have yet to realize that this not a war that will be won if run like an industry. It is not against simple ideology or annexation by conquest or over resources. They haven't fully understood the muslim animal even. Their ancestors had a better idea of the saracen.
