My point is that there is nothing to learn from Vlad. He was a butcher and a sadist. I know we can learn from a lot of things, but come on... There is nothing interesting to learn here.
His head ended on a spear.
We know that we can use some horrible methods to destroy the enemy's moral. But isnt that a kind of defeat? The day we will ask our men to mutilate fallen enemies to scare them... We will be common criminals.
We need civilized methods to reach our objectives. Some warlords think that these methods cost too much. But if we look carefully, these methods are the cheapest.
Because the other methods dont work... Unless we have corrupt objectives like slaughtering people and looting.
There is some conclusions we have to understand:
1- terrorism is here to stay. Mankind learned a new trick, and it's called terrorism. Like crime, it will exist as long as there men and laws.
2- We have to find an adapted way to fight terrorism, to keep it at a minimum. Like we do with crime.
