Cowards. But thats become the American way.
So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong and to strike at what is weak.
â" Sun Tzu, The Art of War
The art of using troops is this:
â¦â¦When ten to the enemyâ(TM)s one, surround him;
â¦â¦When five times his strength, attack him;
â¦â¦If double his strength, divide him;
â¦â¦If equally matched you may engage him;
â¦â¦If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing;
â¦â¦And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him,
â¦â¦â¦.for a small force is but booty for one more powerful.â
â" Sun Tzu, the Art of War
There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all Hell. -- William Tecumseh Sherman
I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country. -- Patton
The American Military has advantages, it uses them. It is not cowardly to use one's military advantages. If I have a gun that shoots a mile and yours only shoots a half a mile, why should I close to a half a mile, I should stay out of your range and kill you when you are easy prey and can't shoot back.
