In The Art of War, Sun Tzu wrote, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” Knowing is half the battle; violence is the other half. Or, all operations are based on intelligence.
We recently conducted a cordon and search of two villages. The Special Forces team that “sponsored” this search came with much intelligence and intelligence assists.
