"I have come to the conclusion that we cannot win here for a number of reasons. Ideology and idealism will never trump history and reality," wrote Lorentz, who gives four key reasons for the likely failure: a refusal to deal with reality, not understanding what motivates the enemy, an overabundance of guerrilla fighters, and the enemy's shorter line of supplies and communication.

this article is distressing, albeit not surprising in the least. when i read things like this and then am constantly bombarded by rhetoric about protecting the "homeland" i cannot help but fear a slipery sloap to fascism (i did NOT say nazism).
