Snipers and their work...
Very true, it is preferable to see more enemy troops be stopped before they are a threat of any size, but I think it is far more entertaining to see a decent-sized mass of enemy troops get cut to pieces like so much pork. I figure a good sniper could set up an ambush like that. All it takes are a couple guys to act as bait to make the enemy go into the trap. See?
But, I will not argue with your point about less troops to deal with at the actual front. I agree with you too much.
