reader, the fact of the matter is that the data is incomplete and necessarily causes the reviewer/analyst to misinterpret the situation that is being represented. As a means of understanding the way in which this together situation is misrepresented, the analysis will engage the reader with discussion of some of the core drawbacks that exist within the research at hand. Without question, the war in Afghanistan is an issue that still engenders a great deal of societal debate; however, instead of delving into this debate in seeking to take sides, the author will instead leverage the information that is represented within the article, and the article alone, as a means of drawing inference upon whether or not statistics and data are valid for making the points at hand.
Firstly, it should be noted that the data charts that are represented in the opening tables of the article do not represent the number of civilian deaths between 2001 and 2007. This is an unimaginable oversight. Ultimately, the bloodiest years of any conflict or invasion are those at the very beginning of such an action. Whereas it is of course laudable that the authors intended to track the state at all, the overall level of inference that the reader can gain from statistics that only begin tracking civilian deaths in late 2007 is greatly diminished. Furthermore, the article does not begin tracking ‘ground engagements’ until 2011 (Zenko, 2014). As can be understood, the nation of Afghanistan is extraordinarily poor. Thus, it is not expected that terrorists or other groups will utilise advanced weaponry and/or the Air Force as a means of engaging targets. By extension, it can also be assumed that the ‘invaders’ of Afghanistan, namely NATO, heavily utilise air power in lieu of ground engagements due to the fact that air assault of enemy forces has a lower overall likelihood of causing coalition causalities.
A further issue that encourages the reader to question the veracity and usefulness of

This is sad state of affairs. We are all Americans. Heated rhetoric involving how much tax any one of us should pay and whether certain classes are properly contributing to the cause of the country, are unfortunate. Leaders who use such rhetoric should do their best to limit it.
War has also been modified in many other facets and has added new facets as it has evolved over the years (Katoch, 2005). The current style of warfare is more popularly known as Fourth Generation Warfare (4GW). One of the most notable things about 4GW is the removal of boundaries between war and the relationship between politics, civilians and soldiers.
The cold war was one to the instances whereby there was a case of limited warfare as the US pursued limited goals instead of unconditionally obliterating the enemy. The dangers of an immense power conflict and nuclear annihilation constantly gad a limiting effect on confined conflicts.
However, thinkers and philosophers did define warfare, as an armed conflict among the political communities; on an international level over certain disagreement. Guerrilla warfare is a form of irregular war where trained armed civilians use military tactics in the actions such as raids, ambushes, and petty warfare to dominate or intimidate the traditional army and abruptly withdraw after the attack.
The culture surrounding the Nara court resulted in one of Japan’s productive periods in art, expansion of Buddhism and imperial government spending more of its budget on piety works. As well, the Nara epoch saw the institutionalization and the deferment of the nation’s army (Kane 47).
The various methods of unconventional warfare include guerilla warfare, sabotage and other activities including subversion and unconventional assisted recovery.
One of the most common styles of unconventional combat is the guerilla warfare where small groups use tactics like ambushes and sudden raids on its larger enemy.
And there is no such phenomenon that would have such immense impact on shaping the worldviews of the citizens of our country.
Particularly, what is believed to have the strongest influence upon the world view in recent decades is the politics, or more precisely the strategy of fear that is explicitly connected with the global nuclear warfare as the thread that became apparent after the World War II, and resulted in the forty-years long Cold War that stretches its derivates and consequences to our very present times.
If a race of people did not have enough land to provide for their own tribe, it was then logical to attack the closest neighbor that could offer vast resources and land. Because there were no international
