    Clausewitz :D

    I like him, he's great.

    But both of them have bright strategy views, the best would be a combination of the 2 men's thoughts.

    The Sun Tzu quote that comes to line in this situation is that delaying a war only benefits our enemies. I mean, imagine how puny WWII would have been if the Allies had marched into Germany the day they first violated the Treaty of Versailles and if China had fully mobilized against Japan when Imperial troops first set foot in Manchuria. Will our children look back on us and wonder why we didn't flatten Iran the first time they threatened the flattening of Israel?
