In truth, the only way to win a war is to break your enemy's will to resist. To do that you have to fight a war to win it. That mean collateral damage. That means being ugly, mean, and nasty. That means doing things that people in polite company don't discuss. That is how we won the Civil War. That is how we won WW II. That is why the South never rose again and Germany and japan have been good citizens… they were all too afraid not to. War is ugly, it's supposed to be ugly, it should be so ugly that we only wage it as a last resort. We've been making it clean and antiseptic so now we have that has lasted a decade and a half. It's actually more humane to be inhumane, win the stinking thing, and then end it quickly then to let it drag on and on. Then, maybe all of us will remember how ugly war is and we won't have another one for a while and people like me just do our job preventing wars rather than fighting in them.
