I suppose age is probably the most significant fault with this dip shit, but there also has to be a healthy dose of ignorance of history involved.
Most any one who is age 55 or older, or ANY one who has paid any attention to history, can tell you that killing the enemy is the ONLY way to win at war. Sun Tsu aside, taking away an enemies will to fight brings only a temporary end.
The path that Misled Marie offers is perhaps a way to prevent a war, but once a war is joined the only way to end it is to crush and completely obliterate your enemy and his history.
Unfortunately, few countries where “good” people rule, have the stomach to really fight and win wars. Consequently we will always be fighting the same enemy.
