Remember the good old days when to take out a factory the US would level several square blocks? It seems to me that collateral damage goes a long way towards winning a war. War is not about winning hearts and minds, it is about breaking them.

I agree you with you 100 percent. I am a huge proponent of the “scorched earth” policy. I believe that round the clock bombing breaks the enemy’s will and the civilian’s to fight.War had become too sanitized.
