'Silence Can Be A Weapon'

There has been a revolution taking place in warfare, and the U.S. leads the way:
In Afghanistan and Iraq, the locals quickly get to know when American troops are fighting in the area. They are the ones firing single shots. The other guys, be they Taliban or Sunni Arabs, fire their AK-47s on full auto. But it's the sparser American firepower that dominates. Better training, and high tech sights, make the U.S. troops very accurate. Snipers are much more in evidence, with up to ten percent of American troops qualified for this kind of shooting.

The Strategy Page article Where Has All The Firepower Gone? gives an excellent snapshot of this new type of creative warfare.

Thanks to Rodney Graves for the tip.

Ken...Speaking of silence being a weapon??? Anna Nichol will probably winn now that her biggest obstacle dead??? I know that is off the subject. BUT, I just couldn't resist!

I wonder how many trailer houses she can buy with that half a billion dollars. If I were her 70 year old former stepson, I would just shut up, and see if she had a hot friend who was also a model/stripper that was into a 70 year old half a billionair who was gonna die soon, as opposed to fighting it.
