#2 Civilians had suppos already been repeatedly warned vee local Govt-Public Notices that they risk being detained + interrogated, attacked andor killed, etc. iff they participate in such activities, to which the Militants formally responded by forcing many Civies to act as "human shields" for their fighters.
Not that the Militants weren't doing it anyhow, ala "People's War" tenets or precepts, or that they "didn't know" such responses would had occurred.

'Bout damn time.

#4 Rather than 'rescuers,' or 'funeral goers,' perhaps a new term, such as "terrorists to be named later" or similiar should be coined by the NewSpeak Office.( note: in this sort of situation, where even a scorecard won't identify the players, I am OK w/ this)

#5 I'm OK with all of that too - can we keep a tally of most hits generated from a first strike? Something like, 4 Kia in first hit of car full of bad guys, 3 more in strike of first car swarm, another 6 in the second car swarm and so on. How many hellfires can be consecutively delivered?
