    Yet you referring to a narrow historical context that the way an old war was fought will serve us well in a modern one? You going to mount cavalry and lob their heads off?

    You really don't have a clue, do you?

    Believe it, or not, the basic tactical objectives of warfare have been the same since the first war was fought.

    Looks as if the soldier behind him is also carrying like that.

    So the progression from genocide to colonisation, imperialism, mercantilism... mean nothing?
    The objectives are very different, if our objectives in WWII were the same as they were before the middle ages we'd have possibly genocidally eliminated all of Germany.
    Also war objectives are different in the context of the individual war, why you would apply the same tactics to the indians as you would the british is just retardostupificated. I don't mean insult, but you really are impossible.

    Looks like two different pictures of infantry soldiers, to me. Care to explain the tactical differences?
    Shouldn't the clear differences between the two enemies be enough to tell you that you can't fight them the same way?

    You are saying that because they are of different nationalities and wearing different clothes, they require different tactics?

    The political backlash would be enormous... How are we going to eradicate all of them anyway? Are we just going to commit genocide on entire peoples now? The repercussions of such an action could be more dangerous than the terrorists you're trying to eliminate.

    Politics... yep. Lost us the Vietnam War and will probably make us lose this one and every one on the future as well. If we could eradicate all of the Nazis and Japanese fighters and set up Democratic institutions that absolutely flourish to this day, then we could do it there. Only the will is lacking... yours and many others, it would seem.
