your opponent should be forced to fight under the worst possible conditions and conditions which favor your own forces. deciding the battlespace is
critical to this.
that's why all the recent wars have been urban;...tanks, artillery and aircraft are not as effective in this space and infantry has to be
used...religious fanatics that lack heavy weapons benefit from this situation immeasurably.
Sadly, I'd say the most important part of warfare is to amass SOOOO many weapons of destruction that no nation would dare attack.
But, if they do attack, the most important aspect of war is total humiliation in the first strike, to overwhelm an army to the point where every enemy
soldier has completely lost hope of winning, and left with no faith in their superiors. Shock and awe, man, shock and awe.

for those at the top of the pyramid, war feeds the egos of nations, and rationalises counter-evolutionary psychosis with the veneer of
self-preservation and 'doing what's right'. this is important to those that would mould our existence.
Information plays an enormous role in how soldiers and hardware are applied in the battlespace. Just the term 'battlespace' shows how much we've come
to rely on information gathering techniques. Most of what we do in war is gather intel. That way we dont have to do as much fighting.
