Crush your enemies. Drive them before you. Hear the lamentation of their women.

How Sri Lanka's military won:

Ban the international press.

Ignore the "international community".

Defeat the enemy.

"The Sri Lankan military juggernaut cruised ahead despite mounting civilian casualties. The rebels thought the international community, especially neighbouring India, would intervene looking at the civilian suffering and bring about a ceasefire in the final stages. When that did not happen, they ran out of options," says Mr Jeyaraj.

I prefer Sri Lanka's approach to bringing about a ceasefire.

You find what it is that makes your enemy think it's not worth fighting and you do it.
