Fanning flames, cracking walnuts with sledgehammers, and so forth

From blog-contributor John comes this observation:

Bush's speechifying at Whitehall and consorting with British Royalty, only make him a more pathetic figure; and his use of the Army in Iraq is strikingly similar to the Israelis' use of their military against the Palestinians. In guerilla warfare, the use of tanks and artillery are not effective except to arouse anger and hostility of the population and to indiscriminately kill and maim innocent civilians.

[Ed--To a similar effect, check out this article, comparing our tactics to the Israelis', and to our failed effort in Viet Nam.]
