"Decisive Force" 

Rapid Decisive Operations (RDO):
Bush said in his speech tonight that he had authorized "decisive force" in Iraq. This term had a military flavour so I looked it up.
Here is what it means:
"Rapid Decisive Operations (RDO) . . . An RDO campaign typically will be characterized by immediate, continuous, and overwhelming operations to shock and paralyze the adversary, destroy their ability to coordinate offensive and defensive operations, fragment their capabilities, and foreclose their most dangerous options." The doctrine of decisive force is basically the Powell Doctrine revisited.
How many deaths will it take til we know that too many people have died?
