"Plant the flag downrange and then turn your forces loose. Don't tell them how, just give them the vector." Art Cebrowski

Thanks to one of my favorite strategists Thomas P.M. Barnett for the quotation by the great Admiral Cebrowski. In the same post Tom says "If we weren't so damn binary as a society in our approach to strategic issues, life would be a lot easier. Suffice to say, the grand strategist learns to love ambiguity. It's written into the DNA code of any real visionary." Bravo Tom! Well said.
