9. Same-same VietNam!
"Regardless of how many "insurgents" the U.S. has killed, you can take that number and multiply it by dozens of angry surviving family/friends, and THAT is how many NEW recruits Osama has for his army."

That's the way it worked in VietNam. It happens when you're using tanks and bombs on "suspected enemy positions."
