Surreal Rules for fighting the War on Terror Surreal Rules for fighting the War on Terror

Victor Davis Hanson suggests in Surreal Rules that the rules we face when fighting terrorists are surreal:
  1. Any death — enemy or friendly, accidental or deliberate, civilian or soldier — favors the terrorists.
  2. All media coverage of fighting in the Middle East is ultimately hostile.
  3. The opposition — whether an establishment figure like Howard Dean or an activist such as Cindy Sheehan — ultimately prefers the enemy to win.
  4. Europeans have shown little morality, but plenty of influence, abroad and here at home during Middle East wars.
  5. To fight in the Middle East, the United States and Israel must enlist China , Russia , Europe , or any nation in the Arab world to fight its wars.
  6. Time is always an enemy.
