One Valuable Lesson - Analyze & Act Faster

"Those who capture this computing power and the corresponding speed of the information flow are going to have a tremendous advantage. I don't care where you look in the spectrum of warfare. Throughout history, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen have learned one valuable lesson: If you can analyze, act and assess faster than your opponent, you will win!'"

from "Information Operations: The Fifth Dimension of Warfare"
Remarks as delivered by Gen. Ronald R. Fogleman, Air Force chief of staff, to the Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association, Washington, April 25, 1995. Defense Issues, Vol. 10, number 47.
