Shock and …?

[US War Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s] doctrine of “shock and awe” is based on a book by military strategist Harlan Ullman, who is admired by both … Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Mr Ullman wrote that the use of air power to achieve “nearly incomprehensible levels of mass destruction” could achieve “an overwhelming level of shock and awe against an adversary on an immediate basis to paralyse its will to resist”… Mr Ullman argues that with modern precision weapons, a “non-nuclear equivalent” of Hiroshima could be created.

W/C, Mr. Rumsfeld. Awe implies a Godly power. Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and do not attribute carpet-bombing to God. Some more fitting choices for naming your theory might be:

Shock and -> dread, terror, agony, horror, death, calamity, anguish, torment, mutilation, torture, dismemberment, affliction, misery, abomination, suffering, or the word “extreme” coupled with fear, dismay, distress, or demoralization.

In any combination.
