Dear Mark It looks like the Author was only interested in what the "generals" feel. What about the civilians who are going to be terrorized by 300 to 400 cruise missiles raining on them each day! They will be more physically, emotionally and psychologically exhausted than the "generals". Do they think that the "Generals" are that stupid to stay in their offices to be bombed. They must have created alternate command post with Electrical generators, water, communication lines ..etc. etc. It is the poor people, the innocent people who are going to be without electricity, without water, without telephones.. for god knows how long. I need not to tell you that we will not be able to call for an ambulance in case of need!. Even if the hospital has an emergency generator we will not be operated on for lack of water needed for the doctors to scrub their hand that is if the patiant or doctors can arrive to the hospital. Then comes the end of the war day 10 or day 200 one discover his relatives and love ones have been bombed long ago, schools, bridges, hospitals, dams ... all "unintentionally bombed". I am suppose to be comforted by telling me that my love ones were "in the wrong place at the wrong time" and in fact it is my love ones fault to try to intercept the bomb or the cruise missiles! Having been physically, emotionally and psychologically exhausted and endured so much I will be ready to burn, yes burn with revange, evey basterd that casued this with every drop of oil we have and they know we have a lot of it. In fact we know we are paying the price so they can control the oil and for NO other reason.
