What you're missing is that wars are a political act as well. Sometimes how to "win" is easy and obvious, and that's when what you're saying makes perfect sense. Sometimes how to win is not at all easy or obvious.

You're also making a mistake if you think for a second that all generals agree on how to win a war. The amount of "politics" INTERNAL to the military in a major war is just as significant as the politics external to the military.

Just sayin'
