Fortune Cookie Blog (u break it / u own it)

 

The warlord must abide by the Pottery Barn Rule: “you break it, you own it!”
When war breaks out, it’s his duty to minimize collateral damage within the
civilian populations; to maximize his warriors’ safety whenever it’s possible.
Once hostilities cease, it is his moral obligation to clean up his whole effing
mess / rebuild the war-ravaged countryside; to nurture any fledgling peace.
