How To Behave While Invading A Foreign Country And Torturing And Killing A Shitload Of Innocent Civilians

American troops in Iraq are getting a new list of dos and don'ts on how to behave in the war zone from their top ground commander.

At a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee on Thursday, the officer, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., briefly referred to the 11 rules he had issued on wallet-size laminated cards ...

General Casey's command has ordered 170,000 of the cards and 1,000 2-feet-by-3-feet posters emblazoned with the rules, which advise the 139,000 troops in Iraq on topics including learning Iraqi customs and searching for creative solutions to knotty problems. ...
One of the rules is "Be patient. Don't rush to failure." Oh, the irony.

But what I want to know is: How thick are these cards? Perhaps the troops can scotch tape them to the sides of their vehicles for additional protection against bombs.
