Rules of Engagement vs. Stand Your Ground

Here is a very interesting editorial from John Soltz, founder and chairman of

He compares how the Rules of Engagement in use by troops in Afghanistan are a stark contrast to the "Stand Your Ground" law in Florida, which is in the limelight after George Zimmerman shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin.

We have the right to bear arms. We also have the right to wield them responsibly, professionally, like millions of US troops have. A responsible American citizen wants to protect the right to life, liberty, and happiness of all citizens. A responsible American uses force as a last resort, and does not cling to a defense of a right to kill like a bully and a coward.
