They don't send missiles with out targets. Who is ignorant of warfare? Just because you were at the concert doesn't mean you have a backstage pass.
However you may be implementing a strategy or two of Sun Tzu yourself, whether or not you realize it.
" A military operation involves deception. Even though you are competent, appear to be incompetant. Though effective, appear to be ineffective."
" Draw them in with the prospect of gain, take them by confusion."
" Use anger to throw them into disarray."
You can find em, you attempt to fix 'em, but you use the same flanking maneuvers and generally fail to finish 'em.
Anyway, this current news will continue to evolve and I look forward to reading your same strategic comments
