Do We Wear Red Coats and March in a Straight Line?
Since 1776 we have mocked the traditional British military approach (at the time) to waging war. We have taken great pride over the years since — describing our American ancestor’s clever adaption to a more flexible, guerrilla type response to a slogging, unimaginative British army.
George Washington’s brilliant use of strategic retreat allowed our fledgling army to gain time, outlast the enemy — all in order to gain ultimate victory.
Today, there is a new wartime theater — the internet — that is cleverly being exploited by the enemy. Unfortunately this new theater of war is being ignored by our side.
Today, “we” are now the bloated, unimaginative army — akin to our British foe of yesteryear. As the #1 world power today, like it or not, we must recognize today’s realities, think outside the box, and begin to fight back more cleverly, more efficiently and more effectively.
