The Art Of War by Sun Tzu

Jun 26, 2008 by

This manual, over a thousand years old, is considered the Original Text for all military campaigns since, by every army that has existed since it’s time. Variations of it are taught from basic military schools to West Point. It is supposed to be common knowledge to any Commader & Chief.
Please read the following brief excerpt:

“When you engage in actual fighting, if victory
is long in coming, then men’s weapons will grow dull and
their ardor will be damped.
If you lay siege to a town,
you will exhaust your strength.
Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources
of the State will not be equal to the strain.
Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped,
your strength exhausted and your treasure spent,
other chieftains will spring up to take advantage
of your extremity.
Then no man, however wise,
will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.
Thus, though we have heard of stupid haste in war,
cleverness has never been seen associated with long delays.
There is no instance of a country having benefited
from prolonged warfare.”


Perhaps copies should be sent to George W. Bush, John McCain and any other leaders, potential or otherwise, who insist on ‘Staying The Course.’
The end game there is a bankrupt Nation, subject to the attacks of any smaller antagonist who can assess our weakened position.
Our current stance can end only in the collapse of our country, economically, socially, and in terms of our integrity to the world.
