USMC ROE - Really like this?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From a Yank blog - only worthwhile thing is as quoted. Seems very positive. OPSEC permitted, how does it compare with what we do?

     
  2. Hmm.. I think there is a little exaggeration going on here. It is still against RsOE to shoot at civilians/non-threats, even when bursting into a room. After all, if you really wanted to kill everyone inside, why bother charging in shooting, and not just lob a hand grenade first? The basic rule of identifying targets as a threat is still in effect.

    The basic description is correct, and from what I saw on a British demonstration, you guys do it slightly differently. We do indeed have a four-man-stack, though we try to avoid the guys with the Minimi/SAW and grenade launcher if at all possible being in it as it can get a bit unwieldy.

    NTM
     
  3. During contacts in Basra, we raided several buildings on the tail of insurgent types and managed not to kill any civillians...
