In war there are many ways to defeat your enemies. The simplest is to kill them. When this is too difficult, one option is to destroy what they have. Turn their homes, schools, places of worship and art into rubble. To cause so much destruction that people will lose their will to survive. The sanctuary of their home is lost. The comfort of being able to recognize their town is taken away. Once the security of shelter is taken away your enemy becomes much weaker. Their moral begins to fall as they see their family living among the ruins.
However each day that a person survives living among the ruins is a victory. They say to each other, "We shall win..."
