de·ceit | \ di-ˈsēt \
Definition of deceit
1: the act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid
Imagine the success of a ruler who convinces his adversary that no war exists. The army that sees no need for war will not prepare for it, much less be involved. The soldier, distracted and unprepared, is no soldier at all.
How extensive a fallacy would it take to camouflage the greatest war of all?
What about hiding it from you?
Are you beyond deceit?
All warfare is based on deception… -Sun tzu
