Defeat by mental superiority

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

Submitted by Mike (United States), Apr 4, 2007 at 11:41

It is apparent to me that if the world can be persuaded that the USA, Israel and other democracies are the aggressors, and Islamic, South American and Asian peoples/nations/religions are the victims of this hegemony, the USA and its allies will be increasingly isolated in the world. This could lead to our defeat not by force of arms, but by political, legal and economic maneuvering. The psychological aspects of what is happening in the world today cannot be underestimated.
