Introduction (from Wikipedia) Strategy is a high level plan to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty. Strategy is important because the resources available to achieve these goals are usually limited. Tactic(s) may refer to a plan, procedure, or expedient for promoting a desired end or result

Strategy – Tactics difference in military usage

In military usage, a distinction is made between strategy and tactics.

Strategy is the utilization, during both peace and war, of all of a nation’s forces, through large-scale, long-range planning and development, to ensure security or victory.

Tactics is the military science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy, especially the technique of deploying and directing troops, ships, and aircraft in effective maneuvers against an enemy.

English: In this file photo, Soldiers patrol an area near the village of Kowtay, Khowst province, Afghanistan, earlier this summer. Soldiers like these may soon see a change in tactics as the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan ardently believes that conventional military thinking and actions won’t win the counterinsurgency war there.

I feel we need to rethink how we go up against this elusive, (sneaky fear mongers) enemy we’re up against. As in every other war we’ve fought, new and improved tactics and strategies were used to combat the enemy, and we used anything we could think of. (going as far as ALMOST launching a strike on Japan using tiny IED strapped to bats). I’m far from being an expert on warfare, way FAR but I thought this is good food for thought that at least WE (citizens) chew on.

So in closing I’l leave you with a final tidbit that should sum this all up:

Tactics : what it takes to win the battle.

Strategy : what it takes to win the war.
