  Human wave attack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Human wave attack is a military term describing a type of assault performed by infantry units, in which soldiers attack in successive line formations, often in dense groups, generally without the support of other arms or with any sophistication in the tactics used.
In a human wave attack there is no attempt to minimize casualties; on the contrary, part of the tactic involves presenting the defender with the shock value of overwhelming numbers of attackers.
What we today call “human wave” tactics were in fact the main tactic used by infantry on the attack prior to the development of modern skirmisher tactics during the Napoléonic Wars.

 Bangladesh: Human rights defenders under attack - Amnesty International   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Human rights abuses have occurred in the context of a deep rooted political polarisation in the country which appears to have divided the entire society into camps primarily associated with one or the other of the two main political parties – the Bangladesh Nationalist Party and the Awami League – or with smaller political groupings.
Human rights defenders have told Amnesty International that instigators of attacks are not only gang leaders whose criminal activities human rights defenders have revealed, but also some local politicians who are themselves believed to be benefiting from organized crime including smuggling and human trafficking.
Other human rights abuses have been committed by “"non-state actors”" for which, under international law, the government is accountable when it is shown to have failed in its obligation to exercise due diligence, or has been negligent in its efforts to prevent, investigate or redress the abuse.

 Attack or Defend?
Attack tactics are also maybe more complex than defense; I have First/Subsequent/Final fire down pat, along with firelanes, boresighting, etc, but attack tactics take more coordination, especially when you've got infantry and armor working together.
Attacking is generally more fun, although I think it is the mark of a good scenario to have a more active defender.
Attacking was easier because I could make decisions "on the fly" and if I discovered a new trick (most often because the defender pulled it on me) then I could adapt my tactics to include it.

The brain undergoes its second wave of synaptic overproduction just prior to puberty, which is followed by a period of pruning during adolescence and young adulthood (Giedd, et al., 1999; Sowell, et al., 1999).
The "blank slate" view of human nature implied by anyone offering a socialization explanation of gender differences is a view that modern evolutionary biology and neuroscience inform us is quite impossible (Quartz and Sejnowski, 1997).
In addition to being scientifically untenable, the tabula rasa view is disrespectful of human dignity in that it views us as mere pawns of the environment, waiting to be kicked into any shape our cultures might desire (which is precisely why so many have called the tabula rasa view a dictator's dream).

As the rear platoons were re-entering the LZ, they came under a "human wave" attack from the north side, Lt. Grant took charge of the two platoons that had re-entered and repelled the enemy's assault.
We only received "human wave" assaults from the north, but we could hear and see a mass of people gathering on the east and west, and if it hadn't been for the artillery and air strikes right among them, I an sure we would have been "human waved" from three directions.
The mortars and "human wave" attacks hit the company hard and two of the three platoon leaders were killed or wounded, but the men continued to fight as a unit in a manner that makes me proud to have associated with each one.

 Oregon Coastal Management Program Types of Coastal Hazards
Because winds and waves tend to arrive from the southwest during the winter and from the northwest during the summer, Oregon coast littoral cells generally exhibit a seasonal reversal in the direction of sand transport along the shoreline.
The processes of wave attack significantly affect segments of the shoreline where rivers enter the ocean, known as inlets.
Examples of human activities that affect shoreline stability over shorter time periods and smaller geographic areas include those associated with residential and commercial development, such as grading and excavation, surface and subsurface drainage alterations, vegetation removal, and vegetative as well as structural shoreline stabilization.

 Another attack: It can happen here
Noting that America is planning to attack a ruthless adversary who may well have access to weapons of mass destruction, the report concludes we remain "dangerously unprepared to prevent and respond to" the likely terrorism in our immediate future.
If another major attack exposes lax preparedness, many Americans will question delays that may have seemed justifiable inside the Beltway but were inexcusable elsewhere.
On the other hand, the economy may bounce back from another attack better this time because more fiscal and monetary stimuli are in the pipeline, and because the Federal Reserve reassured the markets by responding calmly and efficiently to Sept.

Freedom of Speech and Human Rights are taken for granted in the west, but recent years have seen conditions deteriorate around the world.

It’s obvious to me that it’s secular humanism’s postmodern stepchildren, Transhumanism, cyborgianism, and the like, that we must now understand and contend with.
A rehuman is someone who has discerned the limits of transhumanism and has realized that she is human after all, always has been.
I expect that in part it will mean invoking old-fashioned doctrines like creation (humans as a race have been declared good by God) and justification (humans as individuals may be declared good by God).
