“Taking up for the little guy” is why we suck at Asymmetric Warfare

Half of an asymmetric enemy’s psychological warfare objective was already achieved long before that enemy thought about warring on us. 

Reflexive opposition to power and automatic support for the underdog — even when those underdogs fly planes into buildings, bury homosexuals up to their necks and stone them to death, open an average of one new coal-fired plant each week and use child suicide bombers to kill innocent civilians.

We are an open book to our enemies.  They know us better than we know ourselves.

Not plane, nor bird, nor even frog, just little old me, 
Underdogma

  1. You’re right — we lack the zeal for our beliefs that our enemy has for theirs.

  2. A lot of “us” think we’re the bad guys.

  3. Not this “us.” 😉
