That is not through their superior intelligence, it is through the do gooder wankers such as the UN forcing soldiers to fight under a code of conduct that they do not have to abide by. How many taliban soldiers do you think have been charged for accidentally killing a civilian involved in a firefight? How many women do we use as human shields? How many children do we arm to infiltrate a camp? The west is full of useful idiots willing to see our downfall, the idiots on the other side are simply exploiting it because there is nothing we can do as the do gooders simply just scream and shout about it all.
