Back in "conventional" wars like WW1 and WWII the ratio of for civilian to soldier death was about 1 civilian for every nine soldiers. In this era of modern wars with smart bombs, shock and awe etc. the ratio is more like 9 civilians to each soldiers death. Today's wars are creating enemies in far larger numbers than we can kill them.
Reason enough for me to rethink how we choose to handle our international issues!
