War is not just between soldiers

Sometimes I play computer games. Tropico, also known as "SimCuba," was a favorite, as were Atomic Games' Operation Crusader and Stalingrad. I played every variation on the latter, until I was convinced that I could have won the Battle of the Don and saved most of the Romanian forces too. (Just take Gen. Von Manstein's advice: stage a "communications breakdown" with Berlin and then evacuate Stalingrad, no matter what Der Fueher says.)

But I digress. The point here is that this article, using the language and humor of computer war- gaming, makes some valid points about not only the current Iraq and Afghanistan fighting, but on whatever will follow them as well.

Thanks to Belmont Club for the link.
