But none of this is easy. None of it is automatic. 400 miles. Think about that, will you? #SunTzu is trying to get us to think about how serious this all is. And, if we're going to be worthy students, serious we must be.
@Pasquale If we are to fight a war, we should be in it to WIN the war. Hubby was in Gulf War I and has always thought we should have marched on to Baghdad.
@Pasquale Which brings up another question - will followers chose to be led again by a leader who has visibly failed to commit totally to exerting victory against all odds?
@Pasquale It isn't relevant wether the leader really does win or lose, it's more to the degree of investment. There is a difference between being 50% invested and 100% invested. It may look different in many situations, but people with common sense can usually figure it out fairly quickly.
@lolajl Once again, 100% agreed. This is going to become uncomfortable. I don't enjoy agreeing so much! (Just kidding...)
@Pasquale Heh! I'm just an idiot trying to exercise my thinking skills. So one of those days I'll be sure to say something that is spectacularly wrong. Usually I just lurk and keep my mouth shut.
@lolajl well if you ever do, I'll be very likely to agree if for no other reason than habit.
@lolajl sadly, the answer is in. Followers must be led, and will follow the current leader, pretty much no matter what. Consider what idiots we on the right have been for our entire lives. I was on the left back in the 80's, so I can't speak to Reagan. But I supported George W, and I really was wrong. And think about the others. Dole, McCain, Romney. We're idiots.
@lolajl 100% agreed. I never forgave GHW for NOT finishing the job. Absolutely NO excuse. Pure corruption.
