  • Lancaster's Law as applies to Iraq

    http://abcnews.go.com/sections/scite...ing030430.html

    Applying an age-old analytical law of battle attrition to the current conflict.
    "...patriotism is a word; and one that generally comes to mean either my country right or wrong, which is infamous, or my country is always right, which is imbecile."
    O'Brian, Patrick. Master and Commander, 1970.

    Doesnt take an analytical law (if you can call it that) to come to the same conclusion.
    Not lip service, nor obsequious homage to superiors, nor servile observance of forms and customs...the Australian army is proof that individualism is the best and not the worst foundation upon which to build up collective discipline - General Monash
