One of the modern characteristics of war is its inability to lead to a lasting conclusion that favors the winner. If we even thought about it at all, we must have wondered why. Victory is an illusion, partly created by leaders who understand war, and partly by militaries left out of it. We still kill people who are the youngest and strongest of our nations, but we aren't at war when we do it. These days, war is not a battle of artillery as much it is a battle of wills. We are hardly ever at war.

War is a matter of winning the will of the protagonists, even if they don't know they are involved. Every country fights wars without the consent of their citizens, often without their participation, but these wars are different, because they are fought without their knowledge. In the old wars, soldiers donned uniforms; horses or tanks moved out in columns; airstrikes left visible marks on towns and villages. The new wars have little to see. One day we will wake to the war we missed, and it will be too late to do much about it. It will already be over.
