Iraq got a keg, a band and is charging everybody 10 bucks at the door. We’ve decided to walk into the backyard, beat the shit out of Iraq and only let our friends fill their cups. What will the rest of the world do? Individually speak out against us? Yeah right…we’ll fuck shit up. All get together and beat the shit out of us? Nope—most of them don’t like each other anyway. So what would you do to a bully that is taking what isn’t theirs, a bully who is too big to defeat alone, a bully who must understand the repercussions of being a douchebag?
You key his car.
Perfect analogy. You can't compete in direct warfare against a rogue superpower, so how do you strike back? In a way that's cheap, stealthy, difficult to prevent, and as painfully as possible.
