Do any of these moonbats read history?
Safety zones are simply no-fire zones. We started that crap in Vietnam. Today, or for a couple of days, such and such an area was free fire, but over there was no fire. It didn't take an hour for the VC/NVA to figure out which was which.
I won't even get into the other thing that bothered me then and still troubles me, sweeping an area and driving out the enemy then pulling back to a base and giving the ground back to him.
