If you haven’t already been attacked, you will be. You will be a purposely-selected target of enemy attackers. Welcome to the 21st century. You are the battlespace. Back in World War II, Allied bombers flew mission after mission to destroy the Nazi ability to make war. The bombers attacked munitions factories, aircraft factories, communications junctions, fuel supplies — just about anything that could provide infrastructure and war materiel. The Allies also bombed bridges, including civilian ones, in order to hobble the enemy’s ability to move resources and weaponry.
