      or area, it will bankrupt the kingdom.  Use an army to fight an army, use a man, or a small tribe, to fight a tribe.  Lie in wait, suprise your enemy's leader, and capture him.

        ...and perhaps I just don't know the history, but I've never understood the aversion about leader assassination. Given the war crimes and atrocities of shock and awe bombing campaigns, it seems a hit team would be preferred over bombing a city to get a county's leader. Perhaps the convention or international agreement is cited merely in so far as special ops fail.
