 Main Document - Swedish-Russian War
If the Swedish army had understood the value of threatening the Russian armies in their back, cut their fragile supplylines and worked with the local population where rebellions against the invaders actually took place, the course of the war and the result of it, would have been much different.

The Swedish troops on the other side were preparing for the defense of Stockholm and the Russians actually planned an invasion from Åland as well (Over 10.000 troops were to be landed at Stockholm according to the plans).

 ::The Liberation of Paris::   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The liberation of Paris, in theory, was only a matter of time after the success of D-Day in June 1944.
The taking of Paris and its liberation would have been a massive morale boost not to just those who lived in Paris but to French people in general, but it did not seem to be a high priority to Allied leaders.
It would appear that the liberation of Paris was not even on the mind of those who planned ‘Operation Overlord’.

War is a conflict involving the organized use of weapons and physical force by states or other large-scale groups.
Warring parties usually hold territory, which they can win or lose; and each has a leading person or organization which can surrender, or collapse, thus ending the war.
A war to liberate an occupied country is called a "war of liberation"; a war between internal factions within a state is a civil war.

 Principles of War, by Carl von Clausewitz
But if we apply this to the whole theater of war (and consequently to the enemy's lines of communication), the individual columns and armies, which are to envelop the enemy, are in most cases too far away from each other to participate in one and the same engagement.
In a theater of war which we have prepared, which we know, and in which all minor conditions are in our favor, war is easier to conduct, and we com- mit fewer mistakes.
It was especially during the latter war, when Prussia, allied with England, had to fight the superior alliance of Austria, France, Russia, Sweden, and Saxony, that Frederick proved his unusual skill and audacity as a military leader.

 The expulsion of the Palestinians re-examined , by Dominique Vidal
The ensuing Arab-Israeli war ended with Israel expanding its share of the land by a third, while what remained to the Arabs was occupied by Egypt and Jordan.
The vast majority of the refugees (estimated at between 700,000 and 900,000) were, they say, forced to leave, first, as a result of clashes between Israelis and Palestinians, and then by the Arab-Israeli war, in which a political-military strategy of expulsion had been marked by several massacres.
This body was unofficial at first, but was formalised at the end of August 1948 into the "Transfer Committee" which supervised the destruction of abandoned Arab villages and/or their repopulation with recent Jewish immigrants, in order to make any return of the refugees impossible.

Furthermore, the veterans of the Gulf War suffering from this "syndrome" have been denied disability compensation and in many cases treatment for their illnesses, since the U.S. government refuses to admit any connection between the illnesses and the use of DU weapons.
Although "liberation" is a commonly stated goal for a war against Iraq, in fact the U.S. post-war plan calls for a U.S. military commander to run Iraq (much like in Japan after WWII), followed by a transfer of control to a U.S. civilian administrator.
