    That's the nature of guerrilla war; it is always possible to slip into obscurity. It isn't the Wehrmacht sitting in a field with airplanes and tanks everywhere. That's where the term 'asymmetric warfare' comes from, and it's why aircraft carriers and I.C.B.M.s aren't what America needs more of.

    In these conditions, the enemy must be offered the minimum of targets and only those that can incur unacceptable losses to the enemy. At the same time, all types of intelligence must be employed, especially human. This requires friends and that requires being liked. What is America doing to make friends and what is it doing to merely impose itself, thus making more enemies?
