Then the mosque is no longer a mosque. If you store munitions in a mosque, you have now turned the building into an armory. I wish we would send in a team (in the middle of the night, if you know what I mean) and happen to create a small explosion in one of these so called mosqe/armory that may trigger a much larger explosion. Accidents can happen.....

Yep, I agree with ya'll. If they want to hole up in a mosque and shoot at our guys then they really leave us no choice but to shoot back. If the building gets trashed then so be it. They should have though about that before then moved in and started shooting off rounds at our troops.

Exactly. The status of any building (mosque, church, hospital, etc) as a peaceful sanctuary depends on both sides respecting that idea. Only the first side to use a "peaceful sanctuary" for military purposes is guilty. Once that happens, any other side may respond freely, treating the former sanctuary as any other military building.

They've been using ambulances to transport armed troops to attacks also


That's good, that way they'll have something to drive their dead and dying back home in. Like they say, "Ya' mess with the best, you'll die like the rest."

Just how many Americans died in WWII at Monte Casino before we figured this one out?

Some people never learn I guess.

Actually, more died after we blew it up and created a perfect defense for the Germans. It truned out to be a bad thing that we blew it up. I think I even remember that we never did get the Gerys out until Germany finally threw in the towell. I may be wrong on that, but I know it was not a good thing trying to remove them from the rubble. It was MUCH harder.

Problem with Monte Casino is the Germans weren't really using the church until we bomed the hell out of it.

Actually we are all right. The Germans used it only for artillary observation until we bombed the shit out of it. Still the point is the same, it being a religious site should have made no difference in war.
