Sun-Tzu By: blackhedd
I don't have the exact quote from Sun-Tzu, but what I had in mind is that you won't have to fight if the other guy believes you are invincible, crazy, or both. Obviously Jefferson is right. But we have so mismanaged the expectations of others (thanks largely to the pacifist Left and the obstructionist Democrats and MSM) that we'll end up having to fight, and that is an unnecessary and disgraceful position to have let ourselves get into.
I guess it doesn't help to point out the pacifists are going to give us exactly what they claim they don't want. The irony will be lost on them, and they'll just say "I told you so." Too bad we don't hang traitors anymore.
This is a very exotic varietal of the stab-in-the-back, fifth-column argumentative genera! It needs its own classificatory name--since I suspect we're going to be seeing a lot more of it.
