An exercise in perspective: Here's what the brass says...
Listen carefully: You are to avoid engagement, and absolutely minimize the application of force. I know you're all very good at blowing things up, but that's not our objective here.
Here's what the troops hear...
Blah blah blah absolute force blah blah good blah blah blow things up blah blah blah blah blah...
You told them not to blow things up, yet they are still smiling. I think we need to start again, colonel.
