War As Wimbledon
War is a game to our politicians now. War used to be something that happened only when we are given no choice. Our leaders pulled together, our country pulled together, and we put all our might in defeating the enemy. When forced to fight, we pulled no punches. Our generals ran the war and told the country what it needed to win. We bombed the enemy, we shot the enemy, and we made sure the enemy suffered as much as possible. Much to my disgust, war now has a series of rules designed to hamper our troops and make us drag wars out longer than they have to be, mainly because our politicians are strangely concerned with the sensibilities of our enemies.

Note: The first part of this is an excerpt and I am writing this because I am fed up with how our elected politicos treat this war like a diversion or game, something to pass the time with.
