Combating the KIA

I have possibly created a new opening against the King's Indian. The objectives of this opening are to trade whites LSB by putting your Bishop on h6. After this you will push the h and g pawns trying to create a checkmating attack and in the process castling queenside. It is similar to a reversed yugoslav attack.

Some key ideas to note are to lift the rook on the h file and get it into the game, look out for rook sacs because they could lead to a checkmating attack, get all your pieces involved and dont let them sit on the backrank because this is not an opening that goes well if one plays passively, and finally keep track of your own king even when you have an attack of your own.
