Stratagem From My Dear Friend Byron King.

And Byron sure knows his warfare, because he is what makes a real senior officer (Captain) in the US Navy which we, Soviets/Russians, respected. Commenting on the leaks, Byron introduces himself in the piece at Daily Reckoning:

And he proceeds to succinctly review this whole FUBAR with those leaks and provides an excellent bottom line:

Allow me to distill two years of study at the Naval War College into two short sentences:

1) Armies fight battles, but energy, industry and logistics win wars.

2) Modern war is industrial war, certainly when the conflict involves large nations.

Exactly, and this is one of the best distillations of grand strategy, the art, evidently, lost by Washington since Ike stopping the slaughter in Korea in 1953. Read Byron's full piece--it is excellent.
