Agreed, Seawolf, but a better way to start is to study up on the old Chinese General/warrior Sun TZU and his writing The Art Of War, which is required reading in many military institutes.
Sun Tzu's writings are, for the most part, easily converted for agressive political use. Right now the Left has Alinsky's Rules For Radicals while we have Rules For RINOS. Alinsky's way is totally corrupt. Sun TZU's is very wise and does not use disgusting and sick tactics.
