Governor Palin and the Art of War – A Feature Presentation

Predictions, assumptions and speculations, but no one knows. For years Governor Palin’s methods and strategy have been questioned and criticized but she has always come back to defy all the odds and expectations. Time and again during her tenure in public life, she has proven prognosticators and pundits wrong.

True, her numbers are not where we want them to be, political pundits are convinced she’s not running and the seeming lack of any action is keeping her potential opponents – and some supporters – on edge.

I’m not pretending that I have all the answers, but what I can do is what everyone else does: Speculate! So grab yourself a bag of popcorn, sit back and enjoy this special and in ninety minutes you may well have a better understanding of Governor Palin’s Art of War.

– Let your plans be dark as night. Then strike like a thunderbolt.

– There are five fundamental factors for success in war: weather, terrain, leadership, military doctrine, and most importantly – moral influence.

– Put your army in the face of death, where there is no escape. And they will not flee or be afraid. There is nothing they cannot achieve.

– Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

– In battle use a direct attack to engage and an indirect attack to win.

– To move your enemy, entice him with something he is certain to take.

– When a falcon’s strike breaks the body of it’s prey, it is because of timing. When torrential water tosses boulders, it is because of momentum.

– The winning army realizes the conditions for victory first, then fights. The losing army fights first, then seeks victory.

– Those skilled in war bring the enemy to the field of battle. They are not brought by him.
