HERE'S WHY I'M GOING TO SAN ANTONIO

Yesterday in Iraq a suicide bomber killed more than 20 people, and the relentless attrition of American soldiers proceeds unabated. We're not winning because we adhere to airy fairy Rules of Engagement which fatally restrict our commanders's ability to fight to win while at the same time cause unnecessary casualties to our troops. The Rules of Engagement are a major factor in the very high number of psychiatric problems appearing in our military, and play a major role in discouraging people to enlist.

I'll be speaking on the psychological implications of the Rules of Engagement at the below conference. It's open to the public. I believe there's still time to register.

St Mary's Law School's Center for Terrorism Law in San Antonio is hosting a program entitled "Contractors on the Battlefield: Legal Issues Associated with Anti-Terrorism Training and Personnel Recovery", June 28 & 29, 2005. My panel topic on June 29 will be "The Psychological Impact of the Rules of Engagement on Civilian Contractors(in the battle zone)"
