Clownface and UK_Wizard are 100% correct. There is nothing straightforward about warfare. It has so many twists and turns.
Common belief today is that is a nation is more advanced technologically, it automatically wins. Not so. One of Newton's Laws is that with every
action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In warfare, it means, there is always a way around things. That's basically what countries like
China are doing. They know they can't match the U.S. and it's allies in terms of technology, so they instead exploit the weaknesses only or find
ways to render the superior technology useless. If an adversary can work around your advantages, you've lost.
If there is anything simple it's this: In war, the guy who fights better wins.
