The Strategist

The Strategist

A strategist must keep a clear mind. For the strategist must know himself and his foe. But that is asking for the impossible. For irrational men kill and rational men kill greater. It is like asking a gnat to stay still. Because mankind cannot calm his mind. We are born to solve, but how do we solve a problem with no solution. We train for our enemy and we train for ourselves, but only physically. For we are but men lost amidst the fog. We do not train to be lost for we must know. We do not train to kill but we must. We do not train for fear, because we do not know how. We must be clear of mind before we face a foe. Then we will be like the gnat that stays still. For we will be men that can see amidst the fog. For how can we fight anything if we cannot face ourselves.
