Secret Lives of Bacteria

This reinforces my view that simple rules of thumb can be used to dissolve and overcome complex systems. It IS possible to dissolve complex systems like "states" using "bacterial approaches". Petraeus used the "oil patch" technique in Iraq to the point that they are able to now relocate forces to Afghanistan.

So, it is indeed possible to fight fire with fire. Simple rule of thumb with simple rule of thumb.
