Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
(1) He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
(2) He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
(3) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
(4) He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
(5) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Sun Tzu The Art of War
Tactics + Strategy = Victory. The 99% needs to learn this.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
Sun Tzu said: “The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin…”
The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has been the most famous and influential of China’s Seven Military Classics: “for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name. It has had an influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Our military knows about the tactics of smaller armies and they know how to defeat them. They choose not to. Once you know this, you should also know that our government and military could win any war in a very short period of time. They choose not to.
They fight wars because it is profitable. They invent an enemy and a scapegoat, and they fight wars for profits. Profits for the very few, at the expense of many.
Every American should read ‘Sun Tzu – The Art of War’, or watch the ‘documentary’.
