Err, this was what the USA labelled their tactics during “operation enduring freedom” - It failed really badly.
So badly the UK are still paying the price. “hearts and minds” was a much better military tactic, and one the british used. (usa created it before tho)
I cant begin to speak to the problems caused by the US for the UK forces (please note I am not speaking about individuals. I am speaking about policy. My heart goes out to all those involved.)
I leave you will this. (yes this conflict had deep personal impact on me) - This is the speeh given by col Tim Collins. It shows how differently we treated the war.
This is a dramatization of the actual speech. word for word. Makes me proud to be British.
This is how badly it failed. even wiki says it didn’t work
