At the very least,

By the way...

As Sun Tzu said:

The superior militarist strikes while schemes are being laid.

The next best is to attack alliances.

Draw them in with the prospect of gain, take them with confusion.

When they are fulfilled, be prepared against them; when they are strong, avoid them.

Use anger to throw them into disarray.

Use humility to make them haughty.

Tire them by flight.

Cause division among them.
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
--David Mamet
