Well, I feel the need to defend myself now by pointing out two fallacies in the above assertion.
First, "PC" does not refer to correctness of any kind. Rather, it indicates the place where I rest my weary head after schussing.
Secondly, I was clearly not making a derogatory racial reference, but was instead referring to the following well-known theorem:
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Fallacy
is a name for a wargaming theory
coined by Richard Hamblen in the September 1976 edition of the Avalon Hill General
wargaming magazine. The Fuzzy Wuzzy Fallacy states that a single soldier with 2× firepower or attack strength is not equal to two soldiers with 1× firepower or attack strength. Instead, the soldier with 2× firepower is actually worth
of the 1× soldier, if either soldier can be killed in a single hit. This is another form of Lanchester's law
As a result, tactics and strategy designed around this theory emphasize greater numbers and time, which the speed and mobility of the units in action can effect.
Duh. You probably just misplaced your September 1976 edition of the Avalon Hill General magazine. Easy mistake.
