Who knew?

The President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, said:

“You don't fight a terrorist by firing a field gun 37km (24 miles) away into a target. That's definitely, surely bound to cause civilian casualties.”

The current American air war on the people of Iraq is just as bad (as are the Israeli attacks on the Palestinians).  Not only are you slaughtering civilians, you are increasing the base of anger which leads to more insurgency.  That’s why these asymmetrical wars always end in a full retreat by the more powerful force.  The inevitability of retreat still seems to be lost on the strategists.

Israel is an interesting case.  The settlements are officially explained as some sort of accident, an ad hoc method of temporarily providing security.  In fact, they were part of a conspiracy to steal all the land from the Palestinians.  The plan was that the Palestinians would be squeezed more and more and more, until they were killed or left ‘voluntarily’ under the pressure of having no more land to live on.  It was like one of those horror movies were all the walls slowly come towards you.

Instead of succeeding, the plan backfired.  The Palestinians didn’t leave, they just fit into smaller and smaller areas.  At the same time, the ecological pressures increased the birthrate.  Now Israel has a full-fledged humanitarian scandal on its hands, visible to the entire world, and no exit strategy except doing more of the same.  Doing more of the same just increases the support for the insurgents.  Israeli strategists have shown no indication that they understand this.  The Jew-controlled politicians and lite Zionists are rapidly losing the propaganda war, despite controlling almost all access to information, and the world-wide fury will soon be out of control.
