I thought Arsenal was an english football team?

Jokes aside ... don't care much about weapons systems as such, a weapon is only a tool to use. The best virtual arsenal, would be a small army of very intelectual men who were dedicated to the cause ... the rest is merely materialisation of their ideas of how to "do the fight".

Sun Tzu in the 'Art of War':
" To win 100 victories in 100 battles is not the acme of skill. The acme of skill is to win 100 battles without fighting."

Poor Bismark ....

He should've asked the chinese ... remember Ghengis Khan and his gang, they defeated China. They took over china, and became the dominators ... a century or so laters. The mongols were history ... vanished, without a trace.

Wars are faught by the idiots ... people with big ego and a tiny intellect. Life is about survival, about food, shelter and other simple things for everyday usage. And jesus, gave us all the key of how to win 100 battles, without a fight...

You ignore the vicious, you create a collective of individuals, and a society within the society. No battle needs to be faught ... no shot, needs to be fired. You simply expell, ignore and wait'em out. Of course, there is always the possibility that the enemy will use "deseases", "bombs", "guns" to try and destroy you... he'll even locate your leaders, and kill them in an attempt to demoralize you, and divide you. You see, THIS is what the war is about ... THIS, is where you have to stay strong. THIS, is the battle you need to win.
