I don't know who Amy Goodman is but I'm glad she agrees with me.

I was talking with my brother about old RTS/tactics games and it's funny how different our approaches are.

I use maneuver warfare - I lead high-speed, high-damage forces to deliver very sudden, very powerful strikes against an enemy with the hope that the enemy crumples in the first few volleys and I can assault any survivors with minimal casualties.  I typically don't waste my time with anything slow or bother with attrition or stealth.

My favorite thing is to run behind an enemy convoy, annihilating its defenders one at a time, and then capturing as many resources as humanly possible.  Fast, clean, efficient.  I actively try to minimize collateral/splash damage.  All my weapons only fire at legitimate military targets, everything else is captured as intact as possible.

My brother, on the other hand, basically uses guerilla warfare.  He relies heavily on stealth and ambushes, especially on the rear lines.  And lots and lots of explosives.  He's the kind of asshole who will ambush, feign a retreat, then lead the enemy directly into another ambush.  It's doubtlessly effective, but it sickens me.

His favorite thing is to bypass enemy lines by going through normally impassable terrain (tunnels, airdrops, etc) to strike deep in enemy territory where there isn't a strong military presence, causing enormous infrastructure damage before withdrawing.  And he's more likely to blow up enemy resources than capture them for himself, an approach we strongly disagree on.  Not the most elegant solution, but it gets results.

Imho, somewhere around 90% of human problems are human-caused.

And one last thing, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login involved in reporting this developing conflict:

So now we can't even be sure we're getting an accurate picture of what's going on from generally accepted sources, to say nothing of obviously untrustworthy sites.  The first casualty of war...

And here's a classic example of how this whole thing is a HUGE mistake:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  Basically, another gigantic middle eastern clusterf*ck.

Shoe, do you honestly look at news like this and have even the tiniest glimmer of hope that everything's going to work out fine?  Because I guarantee you, it won't.

There has been almost no reports in the general main stream media about previous PKK/YPG attacks on border, killing civilians.
Admittedly, I did not know this (1 dead 7 injured is more akin to a rough day at a Texas elementary school rather than an armed conflict) but for the sake of argument, let's say some Kurds are attacking Turks at the border.  Is the sensible response to send in the tanks and start shelling?

Because I guarantee, if Israel did something like that, you (and I) would be sickened by that.  And that's not even a hypothetical.  Things along those lines have happened and we have reacted that way, only this time only one of us is having that reaction now.  What changed?

Why do you think this is not a real failure? Why would they try to shell US forces on purpose? It is counter productive and stupid.

Of course, we shouldn't have boots on the ground there in the first place, and definitely not after Trump gave Erdogan free reign to let loose in the area.  But apparently, You are not allowed to view links.
