What would Gen. Washington do?

What to do with our enemy...

George Washington: [1777]
Treat them with humanity…and let them have no reason for complaining of our copying the brutal example of the British army in their treatment of our unfortunate brethren. Provide everything necessary for them on the road.

The wack-job Right: [2005]
There'll be some who say that toppling Saddam was meant to be an object lesson to the Arab world. If so, it has sent mixed messages because it was never prosecuted with the kind of frightening brutality that some have advocated. The image of the US after OIF [Operation Iraqi Freedom] is one of a giant afraid to hurt or even give offense to its enemies. Even in the battles of the First and Second Fallujah there were always extraordinary efforts to preserve mosques and similar places, probably to the glee and wonderment of the enemy

How far we've come.
