Wounding an enemy depletes more enemy resources than killing them.

Not if they are all seeking martyrdom.

Not with many of these guys. They drag off their dead and wounded, if they can, but don't really take care of the wounded. Most of their wounded, we end up taking care of. These guys, many of whom are out to get those 72 virgins anyway, need killing, not wounding. Just to grant their wishes if for no other reason. :)

no... it really doesn't... cause a wounded guy can still sit up and toss a frag or pull a trigger...

I'm sure if you ask anybody in a fire fight, they're gonna say the same thing, " I like my targets dead.".

you really don't see a lot of "resources" in fire fights in Iraq...not a lot of muj medics.

big rounds, lots of them all going down range.... I prefer mine to be fired from an artillery piece or flying platform..that way I wouldn't have to actually pull a trigger and get dirty... I'm not greedy. Let all the artillery and air support guys kill as many as they need or want to. I'd happily waltz in and count them. Unfortunately, sometimes you got to point your weapon and push lead out the end of a weapon... I'm thinking rounds the sized of frying pans would be great....not the little ones either.. the big ones..
