Is it possible the real explanation is that the people we are fighting are for the most part, simple citizens fighting a foreign invader? Or do you think this is like World War I trench warfare?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
