In the events where an outgoing attack is unavoidable the caused damage will
be universally equivalent to the incoming damage in one way or another;
much like the drunk will experience the withdrawal from the consumption and
following effect of alcohol. Do not proceed in attacking unless aware of the
fullness of the returning reaction. An attack would only be preferable in the case
where you as the attacking part in the conflict possess a greater buffert of the
immediate following effects of the conflict. Do never underestimate an enemy
as their means of attack could dramatically differ from the means of attack which
you yourself are utilizing. You might attack by means of biological, genetic or
mechanical means when the primary field of practicing conflict occurs in the
realm of information in the enemy which you are opposing. If you do not possess
sufficient protection in the informational field it would be very unwise carrying
out an attack; your attack must completely neutralize or nullify the enemy; or the
means of attack of the enemy could pose equal if not greater than your previously
estimated damage calculation in the outcome of the conflict. That being said, focus
more on calculating the loss, learn to accept the loss as you are essentially always
attacking yourself when attacking an enemy; more so if you are an unexperienced
tactician and unaware of your own strategical thinking and from where it originates.
Learn cataloging your enemies and their individual primary field of choice in the
events of a conflict so that you yourself have a ready strategy with generously applied
calculations of loss in your own department. It is the only way to master the decision
making process in the face of an emerging conflict.
