3. And on Iran and Afghanistan, let us hear from the man that wrote the book on war.

 

'In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good.'

'There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.'

'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. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.'

'Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.'

Sun Tz
