        delete the first half of the first paragraph or even simply "my gut tells me we will fight in 2025" and no one outside would care about the internal memo.

        trying to instill a sense of urgency is good, but I think there needs to be a balance between using timelines as a forcing function and making it the be-all/end-all of strategy.
        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

            I like this video where the Navy Commander says "I pay him to move stuff" and "he could have used an editor".
