Moral Military Madness

Have you noticed that we haven't won a single war in the past forty years.  And I can think of a few other countries that haven't won one lately either.  Well, here's probably the reason why.  "Sultan Knish" is pretty smart when he wants to be, and that's most of the time.  He explains it this way...

"Forget charging up a hill. Armies charge up the slippery slope of the moral high ground and they don't try to capture it from the enemy, because that would be the surest way to lose the moral high ground, instead they claim the moral high ground by refusing to try and capture it, to establish their moral claim to the moral high ground, which they can't have because they refuse to fight for it.  Sadly the only way to win the moral high ground is by losing.  It is better to leave the moral high ground to those who worship the romance of endless bloodshed and defeat."

I'm with the Sultan.  I'd rather "lose the peace and win the war" for a change.
