By Richard Alaniz There's no such thing as a conventional war anymore. It's all high tech, surgical strikes, drones, and patriot missile systems. There are no front lines. Someone will sneak out of a neighborhood and take out a chopper with an RPG, then disappear back into the neighborhood. Hit and run. IED's, claymores hidden in some debris with triggering devices, etc., along troop movement trails and roads, and your occasional suicide bomber. That's how wars are fought today.
