    You'd need to make your case as I grant you nothing based on your post.

    Then you and I might have a case constructed by you to discuss. At which point I would shred it.

    I remind you I posited that Caesar would defeat Sun Tzu. That is the equation I presented. I recognized Sun Tzu won some and he lost some. And that between the two of 'em, Caesar would prevail. Your task should you choose to accept it is to identify how Sun Tzu would defeat Caesar's phalanx formations and his legions. Sun would need more than blue smoke and mirrors to do it, which he could not.

    You really don't see the relevance between my quotation and the Battle of Dyrrhachium? I would have figured that for a self-proclaimed strategic genius like yourself that it'd be abundantly clear from this line of thought where I was going.

    You need to present your case.

    I am eager to shred it.

    My case is that the teachings of Sun Tzu are universal.... he didn't invent the laws of war, he just committed a lot of them to writing. I'm sure Caesar didn't know Sun Tzu from a hole in the ground... but that doesn't mean he didn't apply the lessons himself. The quotation's relevance to the Battle of Dyrrhachium is evidence of this in practice.

    Interesting approach...nuclear tsunami.
    Certain prophecies in the Bible have led me to believe there is a high likelihood that America will be brought down to ashes by a nuclear attack just before WW3 starts in the Middle East.

That is, while multiple warheads on a ballistic missile will destroy a city, these torpedoes will destroy a continent. Each side can make 'em. So thanks to Putin and Russia we've come around full circle again.

Trump has gotten elected and now the future of our party is in danger because our crooked members are finally now in danger of being investigated and charged for violating the same dozens of federal laws we have been sending our enemies to prison for violating. Should we call in Dr. Strangestrzok to eliminate the hazard?
