Strange War Logic

Daniel Pipes writes a very interesting article in FrontPage magazine… He contends that when the world’s mainstream media elected to take Hezbollah’s side in its war with Israel, the media inadvertently revealed a transformation in the logic of warfare. 

Since the United States and its allies possess such military prowess, there is no question who will win a convential war…. “when West fights non-West, the outcome on the battlefield is a given. That settled in advance, the fighting is seen more like a police raid than traditional warfare. As in a police raid, modern wars are judged by their legality, the duration of hostilities, the proportionality of force, the severity of casualties, and the extent of economic and environmental damage.”
