Some time after World War II, someone, somewhere, in the U.S. government or military came up with the idea that we could do war a whole lot better, if we were just kinder to our enemies and the civilian population that supports them.
In short, they introduced PC boutique designer warfare. Nation building. The kinder, gentler war.
Let’s check in and see how that’s worked out for our side. If there is really anything such as a side these days.
An American general was killed today and 15 other soldiers wounded in an attack at a military academy in Afghanistan today.
The incident happened at Camp Qargha where Afghan military officers were being trained when a gunman wearing an Afghan army uniform turned his weapon against Americans and other Afghans, ABC News has learned. The camp was recently renamed the Marshal Fahim National Defense University for the country’s deceased vice president,
A U.S. official described the shooting victim as a two star major general, the highest ranking official to be killed in the Afghanistan war. American generals usually have their security detail.
The military is in the process of notifying the next of kin.
The other wounded included Germans.
Which is almost tragically poetic, since the German’s were one of the last U.S. enemies to ever actually see what an American victory looks like, up close and personal.
This is what warfare once looked like to our enemies.
And this is what defeat once looked like to our enemies.
We sorted out our friends after we annihilated their countries and rounded up the survivors.
Then, being the decent and humane nation that we are, we helped them rebuild their countries… later.
It seemed to work out.
What about: War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over, do we not understand?
