The Latest From General Petraeus And Michael Yon

Monday, May 14, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Michael Yon has an important post this morning, which includes the text of a recent letter from General Petraeus to the troops on the rules of war .  A crucial portion of the general’s letter:

We are, indeed, warriors. We train to kill our enemies. We are engaged in combat, we must pursue the enemy relentlessly, and we must be violent at times. What sets us apart from our enemies in this fight, however, is how we behave. In everything we do, we must observe the standards and values that dictate that we treat noncombatants and detainees with dignity and respect. While we are warriors, we are also all human beings. Stress caused by lengthy deployments and combat is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign that we are human. If you feel such stress, do not hesitate to talk to your chain of command, your chaplain, or a medical expert.
