why ?
use force and the US will lose its position of leadership. Lead from the moral high ground and 100% within all international law and you win - the terrorists lose. What did we achieve in 1972 in Northern Ireland with 2 Para opening fire ? Turned neutrals into enemies. Despite being one of the best units in the World 2 Para will be remembered for that as much as Goose Green or Arnhem.

This Day in History
1861: Special commissioner Albert Pike completes treaties with the members of the Choctaw and Chickasaw Tribes, giving the new Confederate States of America several allies in Indian Territory.

1943: One of the greatest clashes of armor in military history takes place as the German offensive against the Russian fortification at Kursk, a Russian railway and industrial center, is stopped in a devastating battle, marking the turning point in the Eastern front in the Russians favor.

1950: In a series of desperate battles, the 21st Infantry Regiment fought delaying actions from Chonui to Chochiwon. Not only did the two under strength rifle battalions of the "Gimlet" Regiment delay two of the best North Korean Peoples Army divisions, but they turned in the best battle performance of U.S. troops in the war to that date.

1950: The first Distinguished Service Cross of the Korean War was awarded posthumously to Colonel Robert R. Martin who single-handedly attacked an enemy tank with a rocket launcher. Martin had just arrived in Korean and had been commander of the battered 34th Infantry Regiment of the 24th Infantry Division for one day when he was killed in action on July 8.

1965: U.S.M.C. Lt. Frank Reasoner of Kellogg, Idaho, leading the Viet Cong ambush Company A of the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion is the the first Marine to win the Medal of honor during the Vietnam War.
