The enemy of my enemy is my friend, until he becomes my enemy again. When that happens, God help them.
War makes for strange alliances, putting you into business with people that, under other circumstances, you wouldn’t even shake hands with.
Things don’t always go according to plan. You can use every hope and prayer you have, take your shot, and everything still goes to s***. And when that happens, it’s almost like you never had a plan at all. That’s when people get desperate, and things get dangerous.
That’s the thing about plans. No matter how perfect you think they are, however brilliant or audacious they may be, well, they can still go to s*** when that one thing goes wrong. And once that happens, there’s no going back. It’s all downhill from there.
