The British had a tactic that they used in battle, whether against Americans in our War for Independence, or the French, in the Napoleonic wars. The Brits would send out skirmishers ahead of the battlelines–snipers who were tasked with picking off the enemy leaders. The officers were their main targets, the generals, captains, lieutenants, sergeants. Why? Because to put them down would demoralize their troops and cause chaos in the leaderless ranks.
Some would love to see chaos in our ranks. To split us. To demoralize us. To cause an In-Civil war. Or simply to make us waste our time arguing amongst ourselves instead of keeping our eyes on the true enemy.
This is still a free country. We are all free to fight in our own way. Let’s not forget that it was a “rabble” that won our freedom from King George.
