General Rules of Warfare

“Address the Four Necessities: Racial Independence in Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness”  — An African Blood Siblings Core Tenet

When it comes to Racial Independence in African Consciousness, it is imperative for us to understand that being the Original, our Wisdom is the “Origin” of most other Wisdom traditions.  Therefore “The Prince” Machiavelli’s treatise “The Art of War” (not to be confused with Sun Tzu’s) isn’t only a doctrine that can inform on European (Occidental) Knowledge but a document which gleans African (Original) Knowledge as well.  The book, sourced at the bottom, is an appeal toward 15th Century Italy to revamp it’s military into the style of the Ancients, namely the Greeks and the Romans.  Yet considerable attention is put on the Military Minds of Europe and Africa, especially our remarkable Hannibal of Carthage.  It’s worth noting that Rome developed from Greece, Greece from Minoa, Minoa from KMT, KMT from Uganda, and Uganda from the rest of Africa.  Though it’s also worth noting that Greece and Rome did atrocities against Africans in the name of Europe–and the book, beside from detailing several antedated military formations, also provides insight into that detestable Nature of Europeans: for instance, the high role of deceit and the importance of relentlessness for victory even following a clear defeat.

One of the best advice isn’t listed below, although it speaks very clearly to the African condition.  It reads,

The aim of those who want to make war is to be able to combat in the field with every (kind) of enemy, and to be able to win the engagement. To want to do this, they must raise an army. In raising an army, it is necessary to find men, arm them, organize them, train them in small and large (battle) orders, lodge them, and expose them to the enemy afterwards, either at a standstill or while marching. All the industry of war in the field is placed in these things, which are the more necessary and honored (in the waging of war). And if one does well in offering battle to the enemy, all the other errors he may make in the conduct of the war are supportable: but if he lacks this organization, even though he be valiant in other particulars, he will never carry on a war to victory (and honor). For, as one engagement that you win cancels out every other bad action of yours, so likewise, when you lose one, all the things you have done well before become useless. Since it is necessary, therefore, first to find men, you must [recruit them into devotion toward an African Nationalist Organization, particularly the African Blood Siblings].

Paraphrased,

Warfare starts with a recruitment of people and ends with an exposure to the enemy. Somehow we don’t recruit, arm, organize, train, lodge, etc; but we’re shocked that our exposure is to our demise.

We return to the Four Necessities: Racial Independence in Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness.  These carry through to Warfare; especially Racial Warfare of which we have always been engaged.  Racial Independence in Food is the Rations of a Soldier, without which an Army can not be sustained–and as we know, we are not sustaining an Army.  Racial Independence in Clothing is the Armaments of a Soldier, without which an Army can not win conflicts–and as we know, we are not winning conflicts.  Racial Independence in Shelter is the Lodging of a Soldier, without which an Army can not fortify itself against its enemy–and as we know, we are not fortified against our enemies.  Racial Independence in Consciousness is the Training of a Soldier, without which an Army can not Organize in a War–and as we know, we are not Organized in this perennial War.

It’s upon the African Blood Siblings’ readership to become the African World’s Leadership.  Study these rules, study the Newsletter, then contact the African Blood Siblings.  Don’t be intelligent for nothing.  “By knowing one reaches belief. By doing one gains conviction. When you know, dare.”

General Rules of Warfare
Collected by Niccolo Machiavelli

What benefits the enemy, harms you; and what benefits you, harm the enemy.

Whoever is more vigilant in observing the designs of the enemy in war, and endures much hardship in training his army, will incur fewer dangers, and can have greater hope for victory.

Never lead your soldiers into an engagement unless you are assured of their courage, know they are without fear, and are organized, and never make an attempt unless you see the hope for victory.

It is better to defeat the enemy by hunger than with steel; in such victory fortune counts more than virtue.

No proceeding is better than that which you have concealed from the enemy until the time you have executed it.

To know how to recognize an opportunity in war, and take it, benefits you more than anything else.

Nature creates few men brave, industry and training makes many.

Discipline in war counts more than fury.

If some on the side of the enemy desert to come to your service, if they be loyal, they will always make you a great acquisition; for the forces of the adversary diminish more with the loss of those who flee, than with those who are killed, even though the name of the fugitives is suspect to the new friends, and odious to the old.

It is better in organizing an engagement to reserve great aid behind the front line, than to spread out your soldiers to make a greater front.

He is overcome with difficulty, who knows how to recognize his forces and those of the enemy.

The virtue of the soldiers is worth more than a multitude, and the site is often of more benefit than virtue.

New and speedy things frighten armies, while the customary and slow things are esteemed little by them: you will therefore make your army experienced, and learn (the strength) of a new enemy by skirmishes, before you come to an engagement with him.

Whoever pursues a routed enemy in a disorganized manner, does nothing but become vanquished from having been a victor.

Whoever does not make provisions necessary to live (eat), is overcome without steel.

Whoever trusts more in cavalry than in infantry, or more in infantry than in cavalry, must settle for the location.

If you want to see whether any spy has come into the camp during the day, have no one go to his quarters.

Change your proceeding when you become aware that the enemy has foreseen it.

Counsel with many on the things you ought to do, and confer with few on what you do afterwards.

When soldiers are confined to their quarters, they are kept there by fear or punishment; then when they are led by war, (they are led) by hope and reward.

Good Captains never come to an engagement unless necessity compels them, or the opportunity calls them.

Act so your enemies do not know how you want to organize your army for battle, and in whatever way you organize them, arrange it so that the first line can be received by the second and by the third.

In a battle, never use a company for some other purpose than what you have assigned it to, unless you want to cause disorder.

Accidents are remedied with difficulty, unless you quickly take the facility of thinking.

Men, steel, money, and bread, are the sinews of war; but of these four, the first two are more necessary, for men and steel find money and bread, but money and bread do not find men and steel.

The unarmed rich man is the prize of the poor soldier.

Accustom your soldiers to despise delicate living and luxurious clothing.
