I did this four years ago, time to do it again: Some More Sun Tzu For Your Asses


"If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles."



"If the enemy leaves the door open, you must rush in."



"Therefore the skillful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting;
he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom
without lengthy operations in the field."



"The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before
the battle is fought…"



"The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand."



"Supreme excellence consists in breaking an enemy's resistance without fighting."



"All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the
strategy out of which victory is evolved."

5. You, and me too.

It is a frightening possibility that such a man could win the Presidency (a possibility that wouldn't exist without the pervasive media propaganda and the ability to cheat the vote) and I can't wait until he is banished from our daily lives.

4. Ignorance

The one thing that president Obama forgot during the first debate is this advice from Sun Tzu "if you think your enemy is stupid you have already lost the battle". This is the only reason I can think of as to why Romney came out looking better than Obama.

13. Very good Mr. S! My personal favorite, never back your enemy into a corner from which they cannot

Escape. (I'm paraphrasing here) if you leave them no option but to fight to the death, they will!.
