New Obama Plan in Afghanistan: Let's Not Kill the Terrorists

I know that public relations are a large part of any war effort, but this new attempt to lessen the image of American "war crimes" is one of the stupidest ideas I've heard yet from the Obama Administration.

According to some in the Defense Department, when the Air Force sees terrorist activities in the mountains of Afghanistan, instead of dropping bombs on them, we may just make a noise to scare them away!

I know that there's been a lot of hullabaloo about the United States "massacring" Afghan civilians, but this attempt will keep terrorists alive that will then turn around and attack Afghan civilians or ISAF troops.

No offense, but this plan sounds like a total crock. If we're serious about winning in Afghanistan, we need to send more troops and accelerate the training of local forces. If we're not even going to kill the enemy anymore, what are we doing?
