I think it was the Duke of Wellington who said: "it's good that war is so terrible, otherwise we may develope a taste for it". :shock: In WW2, Air Marshal (bomber) Harris said: "they've (the Germans) sowed the wind, and now they shall reap the whirlwind". :shock: So what's all this nonesense on the lips of today's politicians about "proportionality"? :?:roll:

Wars used to be fought until there was a clear cut winner and loser. Winner takes all, loser knows they're beaten.

 

Nowadays wars tend to be fought until both sides claim that their "goals" have been reached, their "objectives" obtained, or that "a re-alignment" has occurred.

 

The PC brigade have even taken the competetiveness out of war!!!!

Whilst I accept modern "wars" are now fought on TV and have more to do with PR than military tactics, this concept of "proportionality" I find ludicrous - if someone attacks you, you hit them back with the full weight of your arsenal - simple. :shock: One has to laugh at the antics in Gaza, where folk are arriving in a taxi with a scratch on their face, then falling out of the taxi onto the ground to be stetchered off to the hospital - and all for the benefit of gullible TV crews. :roll: Having re-read the history of the Viet-Nam War; the Yanks actually defeated the Tet Offensive quite quickly and easily; but the newsreel footage of the VC assault on the US Embassy and the protracted fighting in Hue, caused the psycological defeat of US public opinion, and ultimately the US withdrawal. :shock: So it seems we are now dealing solely with public perception gleaned from the media, not reality. :roll:

:roll: Eh Safe, get with the progamme - war IS murder! :roll: With billions of "innocent" victims throughout history, from Coventry to Dresden, from Auchwitz to Hiroshima, :shock: They havn't yet invented a bullet that veers away or a bomb that doesn't explode in the presence of "the innocent". :roll::wink:

'Peace Keeping Forces' , this phrase is laughable , wouldn't ''War Mongering Oil Hunters'' be more precise?

 

As for the situation in Gaza...what did the 'Peace Keeping Forces' do about that other than have many many meetings about it and little else...maybe because the Israeli's are the true power in America not the Mafia...its not just Brussels we have to be wary of !!
