EPISODE 163

Strategy for Door Kickers

Jun 15, 2024 | Podcast

The President of the United States and his cabinet meet regarding the Zika Virus

Is “strategic” the size of the bomb you drop, the scale of the map you use, or way you play Monopoly? In this episode, Mike and Jim turn Sun Tzu’s fortune cookie sayings into operational reality. We work through how we can win fights all over Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam and still lose. We also cover strategies for winning against Active Shooters and the Chinese Communist Party.
