This was the initial intent of Special Forces, so it's not a revolutionary strategy. Army SF has been doing this for about 50 years, but it's the "HOORAH High Speed B.S." that looks good in movies and video games.

I'd like to see a "Real Special Forces" video game where the player spends 80 hours trying to teach Abdul to brush his teeth and not close his eyes while he fires his AK.

WTF Indeed: It's either that or massive invasions of every nation we know is harboring terrorists. Which one will cost less in money and lives?

If you just base importance on the body count that is racked up by anybody meeting our very, very loose-and-getting-looser (like your mom!) definition of "terrorist" we'd have to start by invading ourselves and Mexico, in that order.

Whack-a-mole is really easy when you have a drone over each hole in the board, though.
