JCS: Non-sense numbers on insurgents

Of course they're underestimating the number of insurgents. If there "really is only 1,000" [after killing off 25,000], then the number of attacks should be 1/25th that of a year ago.

JCS is incorrectly assuming the number of insurgents is from a finite pool. The real problem: DoD is approaching the insurgents like law enforcement goes after a target: Cut them down.

It's not going to work in Iraq. They haven't prevented free people from freely fighting against an invading army.

The French fought the Germans.
