Re: Jason DeLucia's Combat Aikido Series

My intention was not to devalue any individual's combat experience by portraying that individual as merely invoking machinery to heartlessly destroy the enemy. Invoking this machinery is not really the role of the individual soldier (modern artillery accomplishes more destruction during every day of a modern conflict than infantrymen could accomplish in a month). I must insist, however, that everyone who has experience with a modern battle rifle (or even handgun) knows that such a tool certainly endows its possessor with the capacity to destroy relatively numerous lives without even breaking a sweat.
