When the White House is under attack by Korean terrorists, the strategy chosen by Secret service agents is to leave the building one after the other and get killed by rifle. None of them will realize that there's something wrong going on outside.

        To blow a hole in the fence surrounding the white house you need to blow yourself up instead of placing charges and get down.

                  F-22 fighters intercepting a C-130 will both fly directly next to the aircraft instead of one hanging back and the other flying aside to get the attention of the unresponsive pilot, making them perfect targets to be shot down by hidden miniguns.

                        When a C-130 is shooting at you... the wisest thing to do is to stand your ground and try and take down the aircraft using sniper rifles.

                            I like how the gate bombers were going to blow themselves up even before Butler confronted them, like suicide bombers. Even though they could have easily just thrown the bomb against the fence and dove for cover.

                              If the new acting President and his staff see a helicopter exploding with hooded people in it, they will automatically think that the President was killed and will send the news to the world, without even checking the body or trying to think whether it was a ruse by the terrorists.

                                Marines are sooo hardcore that when it's snowing a blizzard outside they stand still in the best dress uniform with no need for cold weather clothing to ensure they look their best when saluting the President's convoy.

                                  After being told to abort the mission the general will still send in his soldiers... even though he knows how dangerous his own governments advanced military weapon is.

                                    It is protocol for US Special Forces(when interrogating enemies) to "Ask them nicely".

                                      If you're a suicide bomber with your own bomb, it makes perfect sense to stand close to another suicide bomber who is about to detonate their own bomb.

                                          There's a code to override the launched nuclear missiles. There's also another code to override that override code.

                                                    Yes! Nuke the entire country and all her 25 million miserable population. After all, they're all sub-humans aren't they? You're so merciful... Just don't forget other non human countries like Iran. Russia, Syria and maybe China.

                                                        If your limo is teetering on the edge of a bridge, keep your large heavy body in the front seat instead of climbing into the back to counterbalance.

                                                          The Presidential limo is outfitted with numerous safety countermeasures, including bullet proof windows. However, it has no countermeasure for crashing into icy water.

                                                            A 5 minutes countdown to disable the launched nuclear missiles seems a logical decision.
