Ewok Hearts and Minds

This charming bit of either nerdish wonkery or wonky nerdery focuses on the failure of the Empire to either create or implement a field strategy that deals with counterinsurgency, I.e. It was bad for them to ignore, devalue or otherwise marginalize the Ewoks. Jawas are considered as a more successful relationship between the Empire and local forces, as the Empire bothers to cover its tracks, so to speak, when bombing civilian targets on Tatooine. Whether pinning imperial military action on the Tusken Raiders will further destabilize the area is not considered. 


I don't speak military very well, meaning much of this went right over my head, but this post had me grinning like a fool. Nerrrrrrrrds!
