Ethnic cleansing--A new term for a very old practice, the applicable
procedure for which appeared as follows: First, kill a few to scare the
others into leaving, "frighten them with heavy footsteps" so to speak.
When that fails, become
more direct--Surround the village or town, bombard it mercilessly, then
advance, moving over the corpses until it is all yours. Chase those that
survive into the hills and surround them again. Repeat the process until
all are dead, imprisoned, or forced to be among their own kind miles
completed, take your people who have survived the same process and
bring them to the newly liberated territory. Repopulate immediately.
A new border now exists. Should it be attacked the next day in the
other side's attempt to liberate, simply defend and continue to
move forward. "We shall win..."
