Rules of Engagement

Another thing I saw tonight watching election-eve coverage was Trump's brief NH victory speech. He said something that resonated, under a President Trump we would "knock the crap out of ISIS."

Maybe I'm hearing what I want to hear, but that says to me we will stop being hyper-concerned about civilian casualties in bombing the Islamic State. We need robust rules of engagement like those of the Russians who are clearly making a difference with their bombing on behalf of Assad.
