THE FUNDAMENTAL THOUGHTS AND PRINCIPLES O F SUN ZI BINGFA (IS NOT ART OF WAR SUN ZI BING FA IS NOT CONNATED THAT CHINESE LIKE WAR). BINGFA IS NOT AR T OF WAR BUT MILITARY TREATY OF PHILOSOPHER SUN. STRATEGIC WHEN TRANSLATED TO CHINESE IS ART OF WAR WHICH IS OFFENSIVE (ZA LEI), CAN BE PROPOSED CE LEI TO BE LESS INITIAMATING FOR BIZ POINT OF VIEW. ONLY WHEN ALL OTHER FAIL THEN USE MILITARY AS LAST RESORT. BEFORE YOU ARE THERE, I ALREADY THERE (INITIATIVE) (WIN BY STRATEGISING); LAST RESORT THEN OFFENSIVE. WIN BY STRATEGISING. POSIONOUS PORCUPINE. THE FUNDAMENTAL THOUGHTS AND PRINCIPLES OF SUN ZI BINGFA - DETAILED ASSESSMENT AND PLANNING - EFFECTIVE INTELLIGENCE AND SCURITY - CHOSSING BATTLEGROUND - SWIFTNESS IN EXECUTION. - QUICK BUT ADAPTABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY - CREATING ADVANTAGES THRU THE USE OF DEPCEPTION - ATTACK WHEN IN OPEN CONFRONTATION (GOING OFFENSIVE) NOT ABOUT HAVING A PLAN BUT ABPOUT HOW DETAILED IS THE ASSESSMENT AND PLAN (NO GENERAL GO WAR WITHOUT A DETAILED PLAN) DETAILED PLANNIGN INCLUDES SCENARIO PLANNING (EATING ANIMALS IN FOREST), CRISIS MANAGEMENT (HOW TO SURVIVE IN JUNGLE) AND CONTINUITY/ SUSTAINABILITY MEASURES. FIVE FACTORS (REFER TO NOTES). TOP-DOWN ALIGNMENT FOR MORAL INFLUENCE (TO ALIGN PEOPLE WITH SOVEREIGN). IT IS THUS NOT FAVOURABLE TO HAVE A PROLONGED WAR BEC THE LONGER THE WAR, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO KEEP/ SUSTAIN THE TOP-DOWN ALIGNMENT OF THE PURPOSE DESPITE OF THE DEPLETED RESOURCE AND THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. HENCE, WE NEED GOOD GOVERNMENT TO ENSURE TOP-DOWN ALIGNMENT WHICH IS WHAT PAP IS DOING CURRENTLY WITH THE NEW GENERATION. WEATHER IS ALL ABOUT TIMING (IT IS ACCORDING TO THE CHANGING TIMES OF THE SEASON). WEATHER REFERS TO THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATIC CHANGES FROM NIGHT TO DAY, FROM THE COLDNESS OF WINTER TO THE HEAT OF SUMMER AND THE CHANGING TIMES OF THE SEASON. E.G. CANNOT FIGHT MUSLIM COUNTRY DURING RAMADA OTHERWISE, YOU ARE OFFENDING THE ENTIRE MUSLIM COMMUNITY IN THE WORLD, NOT ONLY ABOUT AVOID CLIMATIC FACTOR LIKE SUMMER TO AVOID HEAT.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
