No it weren't no war ... it was a technique


fast rolling vehicles, solid supply line, six years of solid troop training against farmers and their mules!


Patton used the same thing when he rolled-up what was left of Nazi Germany




playing with semantics

Blitzkrieg (‘lightning war’ in German) is a popular name for an offensive operational-level military doctrine which involves an initial bombardment followed by the employment of motorized mobile forces attacking with speed and surprise to prevent an enemy from implementing a coherent defense. The founding principles of these types of operations were developed in the 20th century by various nations, and adapted in the years after World War I, largely by the German Wehrmacht, to incorporate modern weapons and vehicles as a method to help avoid the stalemate of trench warfare and linear warfare in future conflicts. The first practical implementations of these concepts coupled with modern technology were instituted by the Wehrmacht in the opening theatres of World War II.

The intention is NOT to win a war....

Why can't the "world's greatest military" win against a group of men armed with nothing more than home-made bombs in Afghanistan?

What's wrong with them?

Lack of intelligence? Lack  ...


The intention is to keep it going in whatever form for as long as possible (Was it Cheney who spoke of a perpetual war?) The goal is to keep the military-industrial complex thriving with a constant flow of arms - meaning a constant flow of $$$$$$$.

It is they, through the Penta-goon, who really control the foreign policy of the White House, if not the White House itself....
