    Look at Eisenhower. He not good at strategy but had great relationship with the British and was a great organizer.

    Lately I've been thinking of the old saying "Amateurs discuss tactics, veterans discuss strategy, professionals discuss logistics." If you're a leader who excels at the last part and can leave the other two up to subordinates, the results tend to be good.

    Recently I was looking at some of the outposts the PRC has built in the Spratly Islands; aside from being horrified at the mess they made of a lot of coral reefs I have to wonder how logistically sustainable those are. Supplies would have to be shipped or flown in from the mainland and I'd love to run those things by a coastal engineer and ask how well they'd hold up in a storm or even normal subsidence, wave action, and sea level rise.

    Unfortunately the sub has been found in 3 pieces at 2700ft. Indonesia is planning on bringing in a salvage team to lift it to the surface. A considerable challenge given the depth and the shape the wreck is in.
