It is not the bravery of a criminal to execute heinous crimes such as suicide bombing, or daredevil armed robbery etc. It is therefore important to point out that the courage we are talking about here is moral courage, which has been described as the essence of leadership." Chika Onuegbu in his 2016 paper titled "The Courage to Stand For Students Union" presented to the Students Union Government of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology.

  4. Chris Karns:

    Accuracy is critically important in this war, carpet-bombing would not be effective for the operation we're in because Daesh doesn't mass as large groups. Often, they blend into population centers. We always look to minimize civilian casualties.

  5. Mark Hertling:

    You have to understand the issues a little bit better than just bombing things, this is very complex and there are hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who believe they do have a country.
