I got a little history reminder this morning on 'Proportionality' and Civilian casualties - this is why real war is literally HELL on earth, and no one in the West seems to have the stomach for it any more- unfortunately it is the only way you win, if that is the goal. the Islamists in Iraq know that full well. So pick our battles wisely (national interest not spread toooo thinly) and go forth to Win when we do engage. Israel is not the Bad Guy here.http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/08/short_memories_once_upon_a_time_killing_civilians_was_kosher_for_the_brits.html
Good piece. Thanks.
