Dear Log,

From an article from a year ago:

«Yet the aim of all insurgencies is to provoke the ruling power to inflict such pain on the civilian population that it forfeits support. This is what happened so spectacularly in Vietnam, and what also seems to be happening in Iraq. For each of the 1,600 US soldiers killed since Bush declared "significant combat operations" at an end more than two years ago, some 20 Iraqis are estimated to have died.»

Again, in case you missed it:

«the aim of all insurgencies is to provoke the ruling power to inflict such pain on the civilian population that it forfeits support.»
