  Rules of engagement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ROE take two forms: Actions a soldier may take without consulting a higher authority, unless explicitly forbidden (sometimes called 'command by negation') and second, actions that may only be taken if explicitly ordered by a higher authority (sometimes called 'positive command').
The first rule of engagement for United States military forces is always the right to use force in self-defense.
Excessively loose ROE can facilitate the escalation of a conflict which, while being tactically effective, negates the political objectives that the use of force was meant to achieve.

Rules of Engagement refers to a war strategy book that Letitia and Viola Featherton are anxious to use to help their two great-nieces find spouses in their come-out season.
Rules such as “use diversion to distract opposing forces” and “use bait to draw him into secure ground” all provide adventures with outcomes that neither can predict.

These consequential and expectation damages were based on the effect of the broken engagement on the plaintiff's social standing or her chances to marry another-- in other words, her relations with the rest of the world.
The problem that courts face is that people may not expect that the rules of engagement are no-fault, and so it may be necessary to choose between enforcing expectations and avoiding difficult, intrusive examinations of the disintegration of relationships.
The court found that the exceptions to the statute where an engagement ring was involved were not limited to cases of fraud because the intent of the statute was simply to eliminate causes of action for emotional harm from breach of promise.

 PARAMETERS, US Army War College Quarterly - Autumn 1996
Rules of Engagement (ROE) for Operation United Shield were approved and issued by the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 4 February 1995.
Most provisions of the ROE were unclassified, including the part concerning unarmed crowds or unarmed hostile elements.[9] This provision was based on the principle of a graduated response, using the minimum force necessary to respond to the threat.
Despite the ROE restrictions, most of the non-lethal means could be properly employed in the sequence described in Figure 1, in the manner in which the Marines had been trained.

The more historically correct view--and the one that is in ascendancy--maintains that in peacetime these rules dictate the circumstances under which hostile forces may be engaged and, at a minimum, authorize a commander to employ force as a matter of preemptive self-defense in response to the imminent threat of force.
Rules of engagement are not the same as the law of armed conflict.
As in Vietnam, rules of engagement have often been the means by which the NCA and other upper military echelons of command have retained the power to decide when to employ certain forces and weapons systems against enemy military objectives.

Their previous language was strengthened to emphasize that "these rules do not limit a commander's inherent authority and obligation to use all necessary means available and take all appropriate action in self-defense of the commander's unit and other U.S. forces in the vicinity." This mandate is repeated throughout the current JCS ROEs.
ROEs a carrier battle group commander and his seniors would reject out of hand were imposed from higher level down through the chain of command without so much as a hiccup from the SEALs' intermediate commanders.
ROEs are a commander's, not a lawyer's, responsibility, but in too many cases commanders and their staffs have defaulted.

 Review: Rules of Engagement   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
One of the earliest apparent problems with Rules of Engagement is its lack of credibility.
Yet another source of disappointment is that Rules of Engagement evokes the memories of other films, then fails to live up to expectations created by those associations.
Rules of Engagement is not without its strengths, but the movie's bitter aftertaste is caused by missed opportunities, plot holes, and the ending that isn't really an ending.

Since the plot is hardly original, the characters wafer-thin, and the screenplay often numbingly simplistic, the greatest surprise in RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is that it manages to succeed in entertaining its audience.

Free fire zones as defined by Department of Defense doctrine and the rules of engagement are a severe violation of the laws of war for two reasons.
First, they violate the rule against direct attack of civilians by presuming that after civilians are warned to vacate a zone, then anyone still present may lawfully be attacked.
Subsequent U.S. military manuals and rules of engagement, whether for ground, air, or naval forces, tend to track quite closely with the central principle of international humanitarian law on civilian immunity and the prohibition on the targeting of civilians.

 Stars dazzle in tense 'Rules of Engagement'
The picture’s real hook: They are not only against but also with each other, characters whose deep emotional engagement reaches back to the Vietnam War, where they were colleagues in a life-and-death mission.
Rules of Engagement spans a wide arc, from truly brutish Vietnam War skirmishes to ugly Middle East street warfare of today.
Finally, though, Rules of Engagement owes much of its force to the pulsing purposefulness of director William Friedkin’s action sequences, archival as well as modern, and to the quicksilver efficiency he brings to the script’s extensive expository material.

I have two complaints about "Rules of Engagement." First, it told me repeatedly how Esmay and Brun compared to each other when I could and did figure that out for myself from their actions and their words.
In this novel, the story is split between Esmay Suiza, her potential love interest Barin Serrano and Brun Meager, the beautiful, spoilt, headstrong daughter of a rich and influential political leader.

What distinguishes it from other hostage operations is the development and application of rules of engagement (ROE) for operations in support of civil authorities, and the relevance of such ROE to possible employment of selected military units in a counterterrorist operation within our borders.
The ROE thus had the effect of allowing any armed adults to be decisively engaged by deadly force.
The ROE were enlarged to negate the possibility of harming children and to allow the shooting of the camp's dogs if they interfered or gave warning of law enforcement activities.
