Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory: (1) He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. (2) He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. (3) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. (4) He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. (5) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.

The last part of the Christian Bible is famously called The Book of Revelation. It’s pretty famous for its prophecy of The End Times. You’ve heard the story in one way or another. Everyone has heard about the number 666 from the prophecy. It signifies the 2nd Beast, also called The False Prophet. In the prophecy he will make demands that everyone in the world obey the 1st Beast, or “no man may buy or sell.” Just to show the world his power he also makes fire “come down from heaven in full view of everyone.”
Was the problem with Qatar in 2017 because of 666 Fifth Ave in NYC?
There’s the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; Armageddon; and the Second Coming of Christ, all part of that story. Christians and Jews aren’t the only ones to believe in the end times with the arrival of a savior. Muslims have a version of that, as do Hindus, and even Buddhists. All the saviors are warriors associated with the color white. They lead a war against the forces of tyranny, and a new age of peace and harmony is the result.
I bring this up after seeing some Tulsi Gabbard supporters treating Tulsi like Judas. After suspending her campaign they say she betrayed them by endorsing Joe Biden. Did they not know that all candidates had to sign a pledge to endorse the winner or be left off ballots? Apparently, during These End Times™, endorsing Biden was too much to bear for some. The progressive bloc failed in its challenge to The Dark Side. Victory was snatched away from a seeming inevitable progressive dream come true. Crushed, the only hope left for many was in Tulsi not endorsing the greedy selfish schemes of the victors. That was for many the last hope for sanity in an insane political world — yet seemingly dashed by the one they loved. Their bereavement ran amok as emotions turned bitter. An understanding of Tulsi having to endorse Biden was too much for their fragile psyches. Their mood was resentful and apocalyptic.
Tulsi supports The Establishment!
Tulsi sold out to The Dark Side!
I will not support Biden come hell or high water!
The war is not over because of losing one battle. Much is being accomplished. Defeatism is not an option when the war is ongoing. The people still need a champion to continue the fight. The various criminal financial syndicates buying the American government have no plans to stop.
Some people believe the primary fight against the entrenched plutocracy must continue. Some believe that accepting the rising tide of Joe Biden's win is a sign of insincerity. They are too emotional to see what needs to be done. Taking the government away from the plutocrats was never going to be a walk in the park. It takes patience and strategy. It takes time to change the perceptions of a public brainwashed by a cynical media machine. Tactical decisions like endorsing Joe Biden are necessary if you want to stay in the game.
Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows; the soldier works out his victory in relation to the foe whom he is facing. Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions. He who can modify his tactics in relation to his opponent and thereby succeed in winning, may be called a heaven-born captain.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
