Your problem General is that you speak too loud, not knowing that the enemy is not that far. He has heard you loud and clear and answered you as well; in his manifeto he has given you the new military strategy of first strike, which will give you the puzzle to solve. How can two combatants can declare with transparency the first strike strategy not clarifying who will be the first to strike? Now sir, your task is to find the solution and stop displaying yourself in combat khaki which impresses no one but your Jawans.
