Sun Tzu's "The Art of War"

In Jack Kelly's article at RealClearPolitics titled Failing to Know the Enemy, And Ourselves, he refers to Sun Tzu's The Art of War. The premise for the article is this passage: "'If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles,' Sun Tzu wrote. 'If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.'"

Right next to the cooking magazines that accumulate on our coffee table sits a copy of "The Art of War." If we are to be serious about winning the war on terror, I'm thinking that a study of that book at this blog might be helpful. Stay tuned...
