Isn't war something that governments do rather well, in contrast to the bungling that characterizes much of all other functions they carry out? Hardly. On average, governments lose 50% of the wars they fight.
Yes, and the First Gulf War was a good example; a huge enemy army routed in a mere 100 hours, with very few casualties
