The subversives understood, and took to heart, the war weary warning that plans are nothing but planning is everything. Because of this, they planned. And they planned for a long time — years, many of them — so that someday they could once and for all execute their plan, a noble and mighty plan, one to end all plans for all wars, for all time.
For years, many of them, they meticulously studied the generals and war commanders — their strategies; their tactics; their conquests; their defeats — and as they did, they continued preparing and improving their plan — its writing; its editing; its rewriting; its testing; its validating; its retesting; its revalidating.
However, over time, years, many of them, all their testings and validations and rewrites revealed to them that no matter how much and how well they studied and prepared their plan, it, no matter how hard they tried in simulation after simulation, could never survive first contact with the enemy, as simulated as it was.
Forever true to their cause, they eventually, over time, years, many of them, remembered what they had learned long ago soon after their subversive plan first revealed itself.
Plans are nothing but planning is everything.
So they began strategizing and deliberating and drafting new plans, contingency plans, many of them, to supplement their initial plan of subversion, a noble and mighty plan, one to end all plans for all wars, for all time.
